Brigitte Bardot Inspires A Glamour Photo Shoot in Brooklyn


Let me start this post out by saying, I am so proud of this styled shoot Thalia, the queen of makeovers, and I collaborated on. Jenny wanted to be made over in the essence of French model, Brigitte Bardot. she wanted a set of images that evoked sexy, classy and tasteful. So for makeup, Thalia gave her smoldering black eyes, thick black lashes, matte nude lips and a fresh face with just a tiny bit of rouge to emulate the sultry French starlet. For hair, we gave her large pin curls to start Brigitte’s iconic, half updo. Along with a smoking hot outfit, I advised Jenny to bring an item that she cherished. So besides her morning “cup of joe”, lol, she bought a pretty silver art deco, chunky necklace.

Jenny wore only three things in these photos and although it sounds a bit sassy, she definitely looks beautiful and timeless. Keep in mind, Jenny is not a model, she is an every day woman and mother of a young child who learned about my services online.  So without further ado, here are a few pics from the ‘Jenny as Brigitte’ shoot.

When was the last time you did something for yourself?

A lot of times we are busy helping others, working long hours and taking care of our families. We text each other happy birthday messages, and email holiday greetings. It seems as though we don’t have much time for anyone or anything.

I want to make you look and feel like a new woman. Make time for yourself. Come to my studio to have a glamorous makeover and photo-shoot. The shoot will be artistically directed just for you and include hair, makeup and styling. It will produce timeless images that you will want to display in your home and for the world to see. And, if you bring a friend or family member along to share the experience, you will receive special pricing on the sitting fees.

Email hello(at)michelleetwaroo.com and tell me HOW you would like to be photographed and I promise, you will be enamored with the results.

Carmen’s Fashion Forward Beauty Session


On a sleepy Saturday morning, Carmen came to the studio and we got her all dolled up. I must say, she is a GEM to work with! Im so lucky to have had her in front of my lens. These are some images i am VERY VERY proud of. When i photograph you i hope that you will be just as open to trying new things like she was. All in all, Carmen gave the make up artist and i so much to work with!

This lovely Latina has two young children… can you believe that?!  Here’s what she had to say after she saw her images,
…”Daaaaaamn! You rock the house!”
:)

Well here she is, don’t you just love the nude lip with those eyes? Thank you Thalia, one of NYC’s best makeup artists!

Dynishal’s Makeover Session at the Studio


In September, Dynishal came by the studio to get some professional, yet feminine styled images for work. Dynishal is a natural beauty with a smooth chocolate complexion, and beautiful bright eyes. So our makeup artist, Thalia Dacosta, used a sheer foundation that matched her skin and brought her eyes out with shadows that mimicked a cowl scarf Dynishal brought with her. Dynishal also learned how to use makeup for her tone with some tips we gave her. All in all, I think she really enjoyed her beauty session. What do you think? =)
