The White Girl Afro…Dave Dolsen Photography, Faye Smith Hair, Mika Does Makeup, Charlene Model
David Dolsen is a photographer that Mika Does Makeup is fond of working with. Mika is my best friend and co-worker so I trust her judgement of talent. I adore working with Charlene Sierakowski and have worked with her since 2009. You will see her in my prosthetics portfolio as a reptile! Charlene has such a unique and versatile look, I always jump at the opportunity to shoot with her. So when Mika asked me to do a shoot with herself, Charlene and David…I was totally in!
We head out to White Rock where David lives, and began hair and makeup on Charlene late afternoon. There was certainly no plan with this shoot. We just wanted to go with the flow and see what happened. Once we saw what wardrobe Charlene had bought along, we had a better idea of what look to go for. Mika applied makeup while I curled hair. I decided I wanted to create a white girl afro! It is sometimes challenging to come up with creative ideas for shorter hair so I thought the afro was a really fun idea.
We had so much fun and I love how the images turned out! Charlene looks amazing as always.
