I took the opportunity to experiment with more studio light portraits with Aneko.

Aneko caught my eye because she has such an awesome personal sense of style. So it’s actually no surprise that she has just recently graduated from Blanche MacDonald School to become a freelance stylist.

We mixed and matched some of her items with things that I have accumulated over the years, mostly the sequins! I also got to have a bit of a play with my lighting again by pulling out my beauty dish, which had been retired for quite a while.

I converted some of these images in black and white, which I don’t do so much at the moment. But I just loved the contrast, and how it absolutely complemented Aneko’s bone structure.

Aneko has the most beautiful smile, and I loved the bold lipstick that she chose for the last couple of looks.
