Behind the scenes with Laura Kirkpatrick

Ana Crane-Simpson doing makeup and hair

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:


Model: Laura Kirkpatrick
Hair/MUA: Ana Crane Simpson Applied Cosmetic Services
Styling/Accessories: Maui Crane Love Rocks

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 :)

Starting 2011 off the right way…

Last week I had the joy of working with the lovely Catherine Jones & Laura Kirkpatrick. After planning this shoot for the past month or so, I can honestly say I am incredibily pleased with the turn out; especially considering the mad chaos that happened before the shoot haha a.k.a. everyone lost and spread across downtown louisville.
