Winter Concept Beauty Shoot

It’s always a pleasure working with such creative and talented individuals that I can also call friends.


On Sunday, December 14, 2014, the team took Hope Gardens by storm, with their creativity, teamwork and willingness to try new places and things.


I want to say thank you to my models, Terri-Karelle Reid and Davina Laylor who are always troopers and aren’t afraid to be painted silver or thrown in size o jeans. (More of a task than you know when your not a size 0.)


To my creative director, Garfene Grandison, whose insight and creativity never ceases to amaze me! He’s always coming up with new ideas and angles to make the final images a work of art.


To Jheanelle Walker, a diamond in the rough who prefers to remain hidden, as her work speaks. Her blending and application made for a flawless ice princess.


To Mario Smith, who controlled the lighting in both the rain and tunnels we ventured for the days’ shots. The man is a statue!


Thank you to Raymond Simpson, who was second lighting assistant and videographer; Khanique McDaniel, third lighting assistant and shoot manager.




A huge shout out also to Monique Simpson and Andre Haynes for the BTS help. I love it when the team grows!
