I decided to make a music video with my favorite model, without her wearing any makeup as to promote natural beauty. I thought it was nice of her to agree to be filmed because I know a lot of girls are self-conscious about being seen like this, but it’s important to learn to love yourself just the way you are : blemishes don’t matter, we’re beautiful and perfect, so screw what society & ill-intentioned people tell us !
Check out behind the scenes from out photoset “Pretty Sweet“. It wasn’t an easy photo session; the petals didn’t want to stick to my model’s face the way I wanted them to & her eyeshadow was hurting her eyes, so she kept rubbing them between pictures. In the end though, the pictures turned out really cool.
Portrait session with my muse, we went outside to shoot these pictures. Poured some petals all over her hair & face just because… we were trying new things. Edited on my iPhone 6s, very quickly because I’m too busy for heavy editing at the moment (and not in the mood for it), but I’m really enjoying the effects I can make with my phone.
I “messed up” my model a little bit for this photoshoot – I had this idea of shooting pictures of her in a bathtub, with this rock girl look. She wasn’t up for the grunge part, she thought we were gonna do something glamorous but I just needed her to trust me on this, because I knew it would look bomb in the end.
