So….let’s shoot in an orchard? ….Well, why not? 

Here are a few pics from a shoot with friend and photog Steve Depino.  We had a fun day hanging clotheslines, riding the bike and playing in the hay…all in Bishops Orchards in Guilford, CT.

  • Model:  Kelsey Dunn
  • Makeup and Hair….moi!

And what would frolicking around in an apple orchard be without my rusty, crusty (almost antique) blue bike….free from my friend Anne Marie and the best transportation I’ve owned to date!

Vodpod videos no longer available.

I had the chance to do makeup and hair for this fun video created for Rachel Roy by my friends at Behrens Visuals.  If you haven’t had a chance to check out the line Rachel Rachel Roy yet, then you’ve definitely been missing out!  The clothes are creative, stylish and super feminine!  How great is this coat??!

 Who says you can’t make magic in thirty minutes….or at least play a little dress up, frolic around in an acre or more of daffodils and shoot some pretty pictures??  Well, it seems anything is possible on Team Ten Eyck!  We were literally there, with a timer, for thirty minutes!  NUTS (no pun intended Grandma Nutz) but FUN and I think the results were definitely worth the effort!

  • Meet Rebecca Hales, photographer and now burgeoning supermodel:)
  • Photos by the extraordinary C10…otherwise known as Carla Ten Eyck! (aka Grandma Nutz)
  • Gown and styling by the oh so savvy Beth Chapman of The White Dress by the Shore
  • WOW!  The headpiece by Twigs and Honey…uhhh…can I wear one of these out one night?…seriously!  With the wrap?
  • Hair and Makeup…yours truly!

Last weekend, I participated in a Bridal Fashion Show presented by YOLO …doing makeup, of course! And as always, it takes a village to make the world a prettier place…one model at a time.  I created the look with shades of orchid…it is spring after all.  And a girl can’t go it alone all the time….BIG HUGE thanks to my team for the day…Makeup Artists Alison Russell and Leanne Harpin!  You rocked it ladies!

Working beauty with me was the creative, talented and fun to be around team at Laura Ouellette Salon…doing what they do best…HAIR! The hairstyles were STUNNING and the flowers in the hair played perfectly off the spring colors of the makeup. Fun day of beauty, you guys:)
