BTS: American Icon Series-Marilyn Monroe

The first edition of our American Icon Series, Marilyn Monroe, splendidly modeled by our talented hair and make-up artist, Kristen Hackbarth. This entire project was a last minute addition to our calendar, and had warning signs all over it as far as effective execution. Our Creative Lead, JP Flores, gave the stylist, Blanca Martinez and myself a general idea of what he wanted the end result to be and a lot of leeway into how we wanted to execute, which truly enabled us to create something beautiful. 

 A simple variation of butterfly lighting and a touch of fill and hair-light with a background gradient were all I needed and let Blanca, Kristen, and perhaps most importantly, Ashlee Bullinger (hair and make-up) do the rest!
