The second shoot julia and I had scheduled was a day of the dead theme. Julia is really into the skulls of Día de los Muertos and came up with this idea for a shoot. Being an amazing make up artist she was able to put together an incredible make up scheme. The idea for to shoot was to come up with something darker then I normally do. I really wanted to use some strong shadows and uneven light to play into the darker theme. Having julia not smile is almost impossible. The girl literally has a smile that can brighten a whole room and to have her look very bleh was a crime against nature. Im really stoked how these came out even though she's not happy with them. I would love to do some more of these type shoots.
