Shooting with Jessica was so much fun! I love her quirky retro vision & the theme we came up with was so fitting for my time in LA. A mixture of the recent La La Land movie style & old-Hollywood glamour, we created a few different looks & shot around LA finding the groove of of my inner “LA Woman”.
I was blessed to have the amazingly talented Hair & MUA Britt Kaye, who created the most amazing retro-insured faux finger-waved bob & classic makeup with bold red lips – I was defiantly feeling some Norma …
