It's been a while since my last big production, but here's one of a few that are coming up this week!

This is the incredible Cali Lowdermilk, who appears in one other shot in my photo stream.

I have summer portfolio coming up and I had the idea of painting a face up to look like a softer version of the popular "Sugar Skulls" that frequent Dia de los Muertos festivals.

Took about 2 days to make the set with the help of Kathy Sunderman.

The makeup was a collaborative effort by Melissa Melvin Rodriguez, Holly Rose Mann, Cali, and myself.

Hope you guys like it!
