Maui-Crane finished selecting potential accessories for Collettes second look! Make sure to check outLove Rocks by Maurico Cranehis pieces are one of a kind for sure!

I like to refer to her a very fashion Pocahontas!

And her “princess” Jasmine look (she looks so awesome in mint right?!):

Behind the scenes with my shoot featuring Laura Kirkpatrick from ANTM Cycles 13 & 17 with the brilliant Ana-Crane Simpson & Maui Crane, featuring wardrobe from Bella Rose.

Maui (the stylist, and accessorie designer) snapped a shot of me shooting Laura. We literally shot in Ana’s backyard, it’s amazing how you can find the coolest locations right around the corner.

She always puts up with the cold for me hahah! I’ve decided in the past three years that we’ve been shooting to just make it a tradition.

Some of the Final Results:

French Vogue using children for models…

The December issue of French Vogue, edited by Tom Ford uses children as models, I’m curious to see everyone’s opinion on this, is a brilliant or ghastly concept? Let’s hear it :)

Nonetheless, the shoot went very well everyone was very laid back…I love working with people like that, it makes the day a lot of fun and not as stressful. Here are a sneak peak of the images I took yesterday, more to come:
