CD Covers :

      Some of the best times ever as a makeup artist is when I get a random call to do a shoot that is completely out of the ordinary... one such time was to shoot a CD cover...my first was Rebecca Henricks.  www.rebeccahenricks.com ..shot by  Kevin Jairaj  www.kjimages.com  We shot this on some railroad tracks out off I35...I loved Kevin's artistic eye...

Later I got a call to do another CD cover for a new up and coming Rock Band...my agent was a little afraid that I  be offended that it was out in the boonies and with some pretty scrouly guys...I laughed and said...I'm in...see, I grew up in the country so any time I can  get back there and still be creative is awesome!! We shot the next CD cover in Sulphur Springs and the guys could not have been nicer...I know I say I love my job all the time..but believe it or not...trying to dodge the cow paddies in the fields made me feel right at home..

The next picture ended up being the cover for the CD Fair to Midland...I wish I could take credit for coming up with the idea to put the guys in the pond...but it was genius...and the photographer (from LA ) wanted to catch the sundown...it was an incredible shot...

And then along comes  Winslow...what a breath of fresh air!!! Not only is she beautiful and talented...she is also smart and so sweet...what an honor it was to work on her first  cover and publicity shots...she and her Mom had some great ideas as to what they wanted and it was so fun to bring those ideas to life!! Bode Helm was the photographer and he found some old cars that were perfect to shoot by...everything just kind of fell into place that day....
