i am so lucky i know so many talented make up artists! it is so fun working with them watching how they work and think.

Emma Georgiyevna Keshchyan called on her model Maddy - my first transgender person i have photographed. you can follow her life here.

Maddy has the most insanely gorgeous bone structure and honestly, there was not a whole lot of make up this lady needs!  

emma's focus was on skin, keeping is fresh and light. i watched and listened to maddy's stories which i must hear more because she had me cracking a rib from laughing so much - like how she met Bernie Sanders at work!

maddy is so easy to photograph - she is such a natural in front of the camera and totally at ease. i do hope i have the opportunity to have her in front of my camera again! she is a dream! so excited to share these!
