Oh, Deer! Fun Makeup Tutorial for Kids

Posted on March 11, 2013 by Terresa Clark | 0 Comments

Recently, we were contacted by Portland-area photographer Diana Sell with an interesting question. She wanted to do a photo shoot for her son's Kindergarten class as an auction project, and needed a little help with the makeup. Now, normally we aren't fans of kindergarteners wearing makeup, but Diana had found an on-line tutorial on how to do deer makeup. Since her son attends Deer Creek school, it seemed like a natural!  But the tutorial showed all sorts of makeup that didn't seem like the best things to put on the sensitive skin of young children, so Diana reached out for a little advice.

Yoga for the Larger Woman Calendar

Posted on September 26, 2012 by Terresa Clark | 0 Comments

Back in May, I had the opportunity to work as the makeup artist on an amazing project.  Joni Kabana, an award-winning visual artist and photojournalist, and the woman behind the camera on our Naturally Gorgeous model shoots, was going to be shooting a calendar for a local yoga studio, and needed makeup for the models.  Being familiar with my work, and the way that Alima Pure photographs, Joni asked if I would come and help out.  The project, she explained, was to spread the word about a series of classes at The Yoga Project, a studio in the Sellwood area of Portland, called “Yoga for The Larger Woman.”
