Hacienda El Carmen, Jalisco, Mexico iii part 1 of 2

by Lucky Red Hen on November 20, 2007

Here are 1/2 of my favorite images from the model shoot at the Jose Villa Workshop. The models are from Citro Modelos and Megan Ortiz modeling agency with Mar from T.E.A.M. hair and makeup making their hair and makeup flawless.

Anna Paola is the model with the red lipstick and hair feather and Gladys is the one with longer hair and softer makeup. I loved them both… they were an absolute delight to work with and very sweet natured.

An interesting part of the shoot was finding out Mexican customs of being modest in your actions toward members of the opposite sex. There was a male model with Anna Paola that was very reserved in how he’d pose with her; no kissing or sensual poses, not even almost-kissing. I wasn’t in the group that took pictures of the couple, so I don’t have any to show you :o( But here are some of the girls…

Anna Paola was just sitting while getting her hair preped.
I used my white shirt as a reflector for this shot.
Love how the wall is 1/2 yellow and 1/2 pink.

Reminds me a bit of Angelina Jolie in this one.
EDIT, MORE PICS: Here is the first of 4, the second and the next one after this one.

The mariachi guy almost made me wet myself I was laughing so hard inside (didn’t want to offend him thinking I was laughing AT him… I was just so amused how well he did Nacho Libre… wait, or is it the other way around?). I love that you’re reading & commenting on my blog ;o)
