before (and after)

Today my girl Heather and I played with makeup!  I did a silver smokey eye on her and it turned out great, though for someone who never wears dramatic makeup she was a tad shocked.  "I don't look like the same person," she said.  I even saw her reach toward the mirror thinking she was seeing a mirage of sorts.  HaHa.  That is the beauty of makeup though, it can transform.  Sigh.  We then had an impromptu photo shoot after gorging on Ramsi's and Ce' resulted in some beautiful pics.  


Every aspiring photographer has that person.  The one that when they buy a new lens, or are toying around with their recently purchased (and might i add a tad confusing) flash,  they decide to try out their new tools on this unsuspecting person.  For me, that is one of my very best friends Heather.  What once was a Chandler face every time the camera went off has now turned into a budding model.  Heh.  Yes, i admit the odd and awkward face convulsions still seem to surface at times....but now only once like every 5 clicks.  Progress. Yay. :)
