Brooke for Cleri Models at The Art Factory 

Brooke is one of the latest fresh faces to come through the doors of Cleri Models and I got to photograph her recently at my studio in Paterson, NJ.

We went through several hair and makeup changes throughout the day, but I think the hippie look definitely had the most impact. The natural light throughout the studio was perfection, but we did light some of the scenes artificially with flash. A Lastolite softbox containing one flash is a powerful tool for working quickly and yields nice, flattering, warm light.

Special thanks to Makeup by Wanida for another great job on hair and makeup and LFM for superior assistance start to finish.

To schedule your photography session, contact me through my web site. Enough blabbing and more showing. Below are highlights from the session.
