Dancing in the Rain / Riverside Family Photographer

Dancing in the rain / Riverside Family Photographer

This little guy of mine, he just loves to test the waters….and anything else he might dare to do! You just can help but let him try, cuz he’s going to do it anyway!

Boys will be boys!

Luckily, on this beautiful rainy day he was wearing his rain boots.  Actually, I’m going to say, “mud boots”.  He found his puddle, put on a great big smile and let us know he would be dancing in the rain!

Testing the water

Testing the water!

Is that somewhat a precautionary measure? Maybe the water will be too cold for dancing in the rain!

 Feels pretty good dancing in the rain!

Dancing in the rain

Unfortunately, it all ended with the last splash climbing up his “mud boot” and down into the warm soles of his feet.  Testing the waters and dancing in the rain came to an immediate stop.

The hair and make-up artist must select the perfect model.

Hard Work for the Hair and Make-up Artist

A lot of hard work goes with being a Riverside hair and make-up artist. When styling a new look there is the process of making this vision come together.  The hair and make-up artist must first select the perfect model to wear the envisioned style.  Then selecting colors and inventing a sheik cut for the model.  The hair and make-up artist uses this model as a canvas to paint that new trend she is creating for girls and guys wanting a new hair fixation.

The Model Must Have the Right Face Shape

The model must have the right face shape to wear the cut.

Everyone has their own unique shape face.  Whether your face is round, triangle or square there is always a certain style of cut that is most complimenting to your face shape.

Hair and Make-up Artist & Photographer

The hair and make-up artist must choose a photographer that blends well together in style.  The photographer must be able to see the artist’s palate  and create that same image through the lens of the camera.  The photographer must then repaint the vision to explode into a new fashion trend.

“Bridal Couture” Swimsuit Session

So hot the day, from early morning ’til late in afternoon girls coming one by one for the opportunity to strut their modeling skills in Bridal Couture Swimsuits from Lovematerialgirl.  It was perfectly hot in every way….temperature in the air, hot swimwear and hot girls.  Our four hair and make-up artists worked hard the molding each one of our ten models into a pristine gem.  There was one photographer on the set to position each girl into elegant shapes that would compliment “Bridal Couture” swimwear and her assistant that worked hard in the sun all day holding lights by the poolside.  Lots of food and liquids to keep our strength up in the heat, shade to keep the girls cool and a beautiful rock swimming pool to pose and keep the models fresh and easy!

Our lovely models:  Jaime Schaffran, Robyn Trudeau, Natasha Klindworth, Janet Amaya, Ashlee Smith, Alana Jones, Amber Brinton, Taryn Clack, Nikki Nakata & Rachael Karr

Our participants:  Suzzette Baltazar/Lovematerialgirl Swimwear, Kelly Chondroupulous/our generous host, Maria Santana/My Hair Fixation, Eva/The Bridal Suite, Michele Donaldson/Beverly Hill Bridal ExChange,  Sheri Smith/MFG Floral Designs & Events, Mia Santana & Katie Smith / Bella Mia Foto
