The Duchess of Andromeda
I had an idea of making a different session with a styling that is not seen everyday. Had to get some professional co-workers. Jenny and Amanda were just that.
After scanning a lot of different models and faces I found fair Sara W, a suitable model for this project.
Showing Amanda the hair styling I wanted to do, she decided to mix two of her favorite genres, historical and fantasy, and make a princess with Elizabethan and majestic style, but at the same time to get a “light and spacey” feeling with thin fabrics and lots of volume. Clothes can be rented at Independent Kostym.
I used cold and frosty colors on the make up. Not easy to find a model that can carry blue lipstick as well as Sara does.
Now, the hairdo was kind of tricky. I had to practice on my daughter Elizia (see pic below) the day before the session to get it right. I had to use small sticks to stabilize the hair in place.
Jen did a great job with the actual photo shoot and the editing of the photos. She contributed to get that aristocratic futuristic feeling.
