I am fascinated by the art of transformation. I love to create beauty and and I live to capture it. Working in both fields of makeup and photography, I frequently get asked what I love to do more. My passion for both mediums cannot be explained in terms of more or less. Both makeup artistry and photography challenge and inspire me.
Creating a concept, having a vision and then realizing it through photography is what I love more than anything.
I am obsessed with the power of beauty and makeup products. The textures, colors, tools and innovative products create endless possibilities for creativity. As two separate mediums and combined together, they help me create magic.
I consider myself a visual artist as I serve as creative director for my company VM Photography & Makeup LLC . I produce photo shoots with a strong conceptual fashion emphasis and I provide makeup and styling to them whenever necessary.
