Before & Afters

Old Souls

Ever get the feeling that someone was meant to be born in another decade?

My little sister Celeste and my cousin Talia are two examples. They are both so graceful and poised.

To me Talia comes straight from the 40’s. She is smart and classically beautiful. Her red hair (natural by the way), bold eyebrows and stunning cheek bones create the perfect canvas for a “Notebook” themed photoshoot.

Modern Day Talia:

The Antiqued Version:

Celeste is soft spoken and sweet. She has icy blue eyes and a perfect pouty mouth. She just cut her hair short so I enlisted my talented sister-in-law Randi to fit her with finger waves and gave her a 20’s-esque make-over. Pretty sure she looks like she came straight from a silent film.
