    A Raven-Haired Beauty

    What a co-ink-adink! It was bound to happen sometime. I've always wondered if my photography adventures would one day lead me into an old classmate, or someone else from my past.

    On this particular incident when I first heard her name, it lit a dim light bulb in my memory, but I couldn't put a finger on it. But then on the day of the shoot, I opened the door to greet her, and to my pleasant surprise....I did know her after all! It was Sabrina, an old friend I lost touch with some years ago. I met Sabrina almost 7 years ago when we worked at Macy's together. Wow, has it been 7 years already? Jimminy Crickets!

    She almost threw me off when I saw her the day of the shoot, because instead of the blonde I used to know, Sabrina came in with a super cute glossy-black haircut. I must say, the new black "do" is workin' for you girl!

    I was so excited to get the chance to catch up with an old friend. It's a great feeling. I had so many questions for Sabrina that at times I distracted myself from the main reason we were there. But, we got the job done, and the photos came out scrumdidlyumptious!!!

    Photo #1: Absolutely gorgeous! The black and white image tastes a little bit like Elizabeth Taylor. What'd you think?





    Photo #2: Sabrina! You naughty girl, you!




    We did a tribute to Anna Nicole Smith. Here's the original image....
    ...and here's what we created....
    Photo #3: I love the bright fuchsia corset! Totally hot!
