Here is the image I submitted to Chic Critique for their latest Fashion/Editorial Cover Contest. Wish me luck! Many thanks to my lovely model Monica for this beautiful moment! You can check out the other great entries here.

In a recent Cinematic Session, I played up my senior’s blonde bombshell looks and styled a Marilyn Monroe look-alike session. Using several classic images of Marilyn for inspiration, we went to work, finding vintage jewelry, clothing and accessories at a local antiques shop, matching hair and makeup and setting up poses to evoke memories of the actress. The resulting images are stunning, and best of all, we had a blast!
