This is one of my favorite photos. It hangs in the kitchen at home. The model Jess is an incredibly authentic individual. Her character is as beautiful as her presence. She has a wonderful fun smile. Although she is young, I think she is 19 in this photo. She has the maturity to match the most competent of adults. She is also the current Miss Teenager New Zealand. It was such a long shoot due to the amount of creativity taken to produce the look. Yet, she sat patiently and provided the energy needed to give off the look you see here. I shot this with Bri, a hairstylist currently working at Glory in the CBD. She put quite a bit of effort into her ideas for this, I was in awe of the many materials she could conjure for the hair look. I wouldn't have a clue. I really love the outcome.
Mickey from Mickeys Mark was the makeup artist. I've worked with her a lot in my career and we only met just over a year ago. Myself, her and Bri make a fine crew. They came with the name Team Adidas. It's a piss take out of me. It means "Team All Day I Dream About Shonty". Funny shit.
