Cherish

 Are you a Snow Queen?
Cold as ICE?
Regal,
Pristine,
a real White Witch??

Cherish
 is the name of the MAC lipstick
I used for our Snow Queen.
I lined her lips with Subculture
and filled them in with Cherish
to keep the lips nude.
This shoot was all about Maria's enchanting eyes,
which, I applied not one,
but two full strips of fake lashes too.
One on top of the other.

The Snow Queen shoot
was a Southern California spin on a winter scene.
Kamee June was behind the lens
and created the beautiful effect of a wintry snow scene
using the natural light and landscape.

I loved the feel of this shoot.
Kamee and I both got our Anthroplogie catalog in the mail
and drooled over the wintry images.
That's how most of our ideas are born;
over diet cokes, screaming kids, and a pile of magazines.

Special thanks to our Models;
Steve and Maria Higgins.






















"I can give her no greater power than she has already,"
said the woman; "don't you see how strong that is?
How men and animals are obliged to serve her,
and how well she has got through the world...
She cannot receive any power from me greater than she now has,
which consists in her own purity and innocence of heart."

Hans Christian Anderson 


Here's a shout out to all you Snow Queens!
That's a wrap!!!!
