Ms. Rosina~Mae Designs

I remember when I received an email from a good friend in Illinois telling me about how I have to shoot with this very avant garde designer whose hair he's done for some time. So immediately I got in contact with her. Ms. Rosie [in the first image] and I started planning this shoot and when I came to Springfield we determined a date to shoot and went with it. On July 14th we all met at 901 Clocktower Salons at 5 a.m. to start doing hair and makeup. [Done by the amazing Mr. Aron Daves] We shot from 8:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. so none-the-less it was a long day for us all. Working with Ms. Rosie was a great experience. I'm actually hoping to go to Chicago in the near future to work with this awesome individual. I'd like to extend a special thank you to my four models Luda, TaKenya, Jackie and Lyndsy. [I apologize if i butchered any of your names] Thank You, All of you.

Ms. Danielle

Ms. Danielle and I had been planning on shooting for sometime. It was just a matter of time. So on June 16th we shot with the help of Mr. Corbin Chamberlin on the wardrobe and Ms. Kaylee Renda on hair and make-up. I couldn't have asked for anything more from her. Being only 15, I was surprised with her maturity, look, and "posing ability". So with that, Thank You Ms. Danielle. I will be working with you again.

Mr. Aron Daves

Working with this guy was a lot of fun. He did the hair and makeup for Rose's models but also wanted some images taken of himself. Lets just say this is the best model I've worked with thus far. He requires very little direction and is amazing with posing. Once I make my way out towards Chicago I will be working with him again


Mr. Justin "JStar" Jackson

This isn't the first or the last time working with Mr. Jackson. I remember getting in touch with him for the American Boy shoot and knowing the night before the shoot was going to end up just like in envisioned it. The attitude, style and energy he brings is what contributes to such a successful shoot. I remember him bringing all the shoes and clothes to the first shoot and I was stunned by how prepared he had come. This wont be the last time you see something from this guy.
