Film Noir Photoshoot!


On Christmas Eve, I stopped in to see my amazing friend and genius hairdresser Arsenia Barias at her salon, Altagracia Unisex. I decided I wanted to try something new for the upcoming year and after watching the film for “Water For Elephants” (one of my favorite books of all time), I was very inspired by Reese Witherspoon’s 1920’s/1930’s chic bob!

When we were all done, my friend Aimee Becker came over to my apartment to snap some photos. I thought I would do a film noir look as the black and white medium added an extra touch of vintage glamour. I had a great time playing model to such a talented photographer! What do y’all think? Take a looksie 🙂
