It was a full day shoot with lots of wardrobe changes!
The magazine is available on newstands now. Check out the spread below.

New Beauty Shoot

Beauty shoots are my favorite types of shoots to do because they are all about the makeup. So when I got the chance to do a photo shoot with photographer and retoucher Eydis Einarsdottir http://studio80s.com, I jumped on it. I knew with my makeup skills and her amazing photography and retouching skills, the images would be stunning. The other key factor to getting wonderful beauty shots are having an exceptional model. Eydis and I lucked out with our incredible model, Andrea Milner from NEXT Models http://www.nextmodels.ca Andrea was such a pleasure to work with. She's done countless photo shoots and magazine spreads and her face is gorgeous which made every makeup look I did stand out.

Here are some fun behind the scenes from our photo shoot.





Here's a sneak peek of one of the final images from the beauty shoot. To see all pictures from the shoot, go to my website www.THEYrep.com/Eman You will love them!!

Photography + Retouching by Eydis Einarsdottir - www.studio80s.com + www.sugarstudios.com

Beautiful Brides

One of the things I love most about my job is making my clients incredibly happy on one of the most important days of their lives. My recent bride Amanda looked so beautiful as a bride, she took my breathe away. Knowing that I helped her look and feel her best on her wedding is such fulfilling feeling.

Here are some pics from Amanda's wedding. Makeup for the bride and bridesmaids was done by me and hair was done by the fabulous Nadia Albano.
