50s' Inspired Model Session With Lauren

In 2016, I had the privilege to work with Lauren Roberts, and knew that I wanted to work with her again. Since last year's shoot however, Lauren had been signed by Ford/Robert Black Agency in Scottsdale. At first I was nervous checking with Lauren to see if we could work together again. I shouldn't have been nervous at all. Lauren quickly put me in touch with her agency, and within 24 hours I heard back from Jessica. It was such a wonderful experience to work with the Ford/Robert Black Agency. Within a couple of days we had the date set for this year's, 50's inspired session.

Not only is Lauren an amazing and beautiful model, but she came up with ideas how we can make this session even more fun. We created a board on Pinterest to share our ideas. I had the 50's fashion inspired idea in my head for more than 8 months, and it was wonderful to see what Lauren came up with, to add to this vision.

We met up with make-up artist Sofia Verdugo of Phoenix Makeup Collective to get Lauren ready for the shoot. (Thank you Cindy Roberts for allowing us to use your home).

Here are some images from behind the scene as Lauren had make-up applied, and the hair being prepped for the look.

After Lauren was finished with hair & make-up, we headed over to Chandler to the Crown Plaza Phoenix-Chandler (also know as the San Marcos Resort & Golf Club) to take some classy images. I just love the dress on her; the sunglasses and gloves Lauren purchased were the perfect addition to the dress and the vision I had for this shoot.

Thank you Lauren for allowing me to work with you again this year, and my hope is that we can work again in 2018...and maybe in New York City.

Thank you for stopping by today...until next time, be classy in a black dress.
