Stephanie Duchaine by Studio James Thor

Had a great pleasure working with actress Stephanie Duchaine during her visit to Seattle last week. 


Stephanie is currently the host of People Magazine PEOPLE OF THE WEEK, and THE HOT SPOT on HSN and she is as lovely as lovely can be. 


It does not take much to get her camera ready, she is such a natural beauty (literally, the longest lashes, I've seen), so we played-up her eyes with  taupes and browns and went for soft curls for her hair-styling. 

Cannot wait to work with her again soon.


Amazing images are by Studio James Thor.





Miri Ben-Ari at Independence Sector Conference in Seattle

Last week I had an unbelievable pleasure to be working with a Grammy-winning violinist Miri Ben-Ari doing her hair and makeup for her performance at Independent Sector National Conference in Seattle, WA.


In addition to being ourely mesmorizing performer who has worked with other amazing artists  (Kanye West, Jay Z, Wyclef Jean, Alicia Keys, Wynton Marsalis, Britney Spears, Maroon 5, Akon, Patti Labelle, Brandy, Donna Summer, Janet Jackson, John Legend and Armin Van Buuren, etc.), is also producer, humanitarian, UN “Goodwill Ambassador of Music”, founder and CEO of "Gedenk", a a not-for-profit organization, dedicated to educate, raise awareness and encourage self-expression among youth about anti-Semitism, racism and their brutal consequences.

In spite all these honorable awards, Miri is unbelievably sweet and absolutely breathtakingly gorgeous.

As we chatted about her styling along with the political situation in Ukraine (talk about combining business and pleasure), I was truly inspired to be introduced to such a wonderful selfless person. 

Being invited to watch Miri perform make me cry. Her music is exceptional and her impeccable performance is emotionally pristine - just like true art should be. 

Although video footage from her is performanve is unavailable yet, I simply have to share a video from one of her past performances.

Joel McHale for Canon

Last week I had pleasure to work with Joel McHale during his visit to Seattle in partnership with Canon.

You could see interview with actor on King 5 live as well as personally meet him and see his images featured at  Axis in Pioneer Square as part of Canon's PIXMA PRO City Senses Gallery. 

Joel is just as amazing in person as he is on screen.  A pure joy to work with.

I certainly hope to see him in Seattle more often.

Now, that the wedding season is pretty much nearing its end I will try to share other work that I do aside from May-October when everyone in Seattle decides they want to get married....


Today I bring to you a glimpse of the  commercial video shoot for Reliant Water I was fortunate a part of a couple of months ago.


Total pleasure working along Jason from Jason Ryan Creative and our amazing models. I cannot stress enough what a pleasure it was to be a part fo this wonderful team.

This particular shoot made me consider buying an RV at some point :) - those are totally awesome and for  prep "set"  by the way.
