Model:  Sandra Steen; Photographer:  Kristen Weaver;  Hair/Makeup:  Ana Rivera

Model Sandra Steen (pictured above) contacted us (specifically requesting Ana) to do a boudoir shoot as a gift to her new husband right before the holidays.  We didn’t work on her wedding, but Sandra remembered Ana’s work from a previous Trash the Dress shoot with photographer Misty Miotto and knew that Ana could achieve the right look for this photo shoot.  As busy as Ana was before the holidays, she made it happen and granted Sandra’s wish to be her hair and makeup person for the shoot.  Sandra hired Kristen Weaver as her photographer.  Kristen is another well known photographer in the area and we were excited to finally have a chance to work with her.  We are fans of her work and her style of photography… just look for yourself and you can see why.

During the two hour photo shoot we did about 6 hair and make-up changes (crazy, I know), changed outfits and jewelry (jewelry provided by Ana).  Ana had a severe migraine headache that day and could barely see straight.  She laid on the couch here and there in between outfits, but even through that – it didn’t stop them from making the beautiful photos you see.  It turned out to be a fun day working with all three of them.

Sandra loves to get her photos taken so I’m sure we’ll shoot some other things with her in the future. FYI… Sandra is not a professional model.  She has an office job, but maybe she needs to seriously reconsider a career change since we’ve never seen a bad picture of her!  You can see the Trash the Dress photos on Misty Miotto’s blog and  facebook fan page. We also hope to collaborate with Kristen Weaver again (hint hint) on other projects since we share a similar outlook on fashion and beauty looks.
