Last month, I had my very first official photoshoot with a professional photographer! My lovely friend and fabulous hairdresser Arsenia called me and told me she was looking to do a 1930′s style shoot for her book and I jumped at the chance to work with her! She created these gorgeous vintage finger waves to accent my own 1930’s lace dress. I finished off the ensemble by adding my vintage Salvatore Ferragamo t-strap shoes and some art deco rhinestone jewelry.
Angelo, the photographer we worked with, made me feel super comfortable which was great because I was super nervous to work with a pro (my usual photographers are either my mama or a tripod, lol!) He was so sweet and with all of our combined visions we created some pretty nice photos. I had so much fun that day, I can’t wait to work with them again!

Arsenia did an AMAZING job on my makeup. I felt like I had peacock eyes! She is so awesome!
I used my own Photoplay Magazine from 1926 as a prop
