I met Larissa Higo last month, when she did my sister’s wedding make-up. She is currently attending Vancouver Film School where she is training to become a special effects make-up artist…. and she is really, really talented! Since we are both new to our trades, we decided a collaboration was in order. It was a pretty simple deal… she does the make-up, I do the photos. She rounded up some models and I met them at a nearby park. The girls looked amazing… First up was Olivia! For her first lifestyle portrait session, we started with a bridesmaid inspired shoot. Her adorable lilac dress, and some simple daisy’s work great with the sunset and tall grass surroundings. She was so great to work with, and I thought everything really came together nicely! This was a very inspiring day for me! Stay tuned for part two, to see a more edgy, editorial Olivia…

Here are the best shots from her first session…
