Mona

When my friend Chau Nguyen, Make-Up artist with A-List Makeup contacted me about shooting an Indian Bridal model I jumped at the chance. On Sept. 4th we agreed to meet at my favorite haunt, Japanese Friendship Gardens, mid-day. Now usually I prefer to work when the sun is near sunset, the "Golden Hour" but time constraints wouldn't permit it, so as I waited outside the gates to the park I noticed a nice shady area beneath a row of trees.

 

Mona was dressed in a traditional Indian Bridal outfit and Chau had so expertly prepared her make-up and hair.

The colors of her gown contrasted nicely with the natural surroundings

The shade mid-day was very welcome and I was able to use the park's features in new ways.

The small Japanese house was under construction but we found it to make a nice backdrop

Mona was a real trooper, performed with a smile to my every request
