 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

  • 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:)

Very few times in my career have I been offered such an opportunity…to do what I love…paint faces… in another country!  And this time it was Costa Rica!  And WOWZA was it a great time…

Candice Dowling Coppola of Jubilee Events and Carla Ten Eyck and her team of superb photographers organized an editorial bridal shoot to help promote destination weddings in Costa Rica and let me  tell you, if you’re planning a destination wedding, booking your honeymoon or just need a vacation…THIS is where you need to be!!  Magan Hunt of MMH Intl. and Larry of  stayincostarica.com treated us like royalty and I’ve never been anywhere more beautiful!

And the shoot….well…pics for now are top secret, but here’s the inspiration board put together by Candice!  We shot on black sand beaches, rainforests, chapels and mountainside retreats…oh my!  And my head is still spinning from the talent everyone brought to the shoot…Styling by Beth Chapman of  The White Dress by the Shore, Floral Design and Sculpture by Tony Palmieri of Datura, A Modern Garden and moving pictures by Mike and Erica Cyr of Buzz Media Company.

That’s where we stayed and that’s me with my feet in the pool:) Who wouldn’t want their own private swim up tiki bar, private pool/ jacuzzi and private chef?…We miss you Jose!:)  Book your trip NOW! www.stayincostarica.com

It always feels very special when someone asks you to be a part of a project they’ve been planning and this one was no exception.  Callie Tein, designer for Modern Trousseau, asked me to help out with her upcoming advertising shoot and I was more than happy to be asked!  It was shot in The English Market in New Haven by the talented Steve Depino.
