If you know me, you know vintage glamour is right up my alley.

So when my client, Sade, messaged me on Instagram pointing out an Old Hollywood self-portrait of mine and asking for a similar session, I was geeked to try the concept on someone else! After months of chatting (and more months of COVID-related delay), I finally was able to get her in the studio, bringing in the talented Essence/@iridessence for 1940s/1950s style hair and makeup. Add some strategic lights and killer poses, and the result was 100% va-va-voom!
