THE NEWTON GIRL!

WELCOME TO THE DECEMBER ISSUE ! WHERE WE ARE IN HOLIDAY MODE. We hope you've enjoyed perusing our recent editorials. I must say its always a pleasure shooting and being creative. Its sort of an outlet for me. We normally go in the direction of a gift guide, but I chose instead to do just a beautiful series of stories with beautiful images and objects to dream about. In the process of planning this shoot I perused image of Helmut Newton and loved his images of a very strong sexually liberated woman who loves fashion. Our cover star @kate_sutton12 is 6 ft tall and she has the height to represent what I call the NEWTON GIRL and the beauty...

HOLIDAY BEAUTY !

WELCOME TO THE DECEMBER ISSUE. A HELMUT NEWTON CHRISTMAS. This Issue was inspired by the iconic German photographer Helmut Newton. I love his use of shadows and the way he portrayed the strength and sexuality of a woman. Makeup played a big part in his images, a perfectly stained lip along with a perfectly manicured lacquered hand. We cannot forget the use of fashion to bring his woman to life. Enter Makeup and Hair stylist @debbie_jacks at @distinctartists . Our Newton girl of the moment comes to us via @Selectmodelchicago , she is but 14. It was quite a challenge to bring out that Newtonesque beauty. Kate’s look started with Armani Luminous Silk Foundation  applied sparingly.  The focus of this look is...
