Arlenis Sosa For Yo Dona May 2011

Dominican model Arlenis Sosa posed in tropical swimwear for Yo Dano May 2011 issue.  Stylist Amparo Utrilla used simple styles with colorful printed accessories and jewels to give life to the shoot.  I really like the camera angles photographer Miguel Reveriego took too.

Bisoux: Behind The Scenes Photo Shoot With Flo Keyanna For Her Single “No Holding Back”

Last Wednesday we were invited to provide jewelry for a photo shoot for a new pop artist Flo Keyanna.  Flo wanted to do some promotional work for her single “No Holding Back,” which will be released June 3rd so stay tuned. My friend and professional Make-Up Artisit (MUA) Lakisha Evans of Glorified Faces put together a team for the project.  The shoot was done at Pixtions Photography studio with photographer Tyrone Love.  Juan Ortiz, of Redd Pen Media, was the videographer catching all the behind the scenes filming of the shoot.  Hair was hooked up by Alexis; also a member of Glorified Faces. Clothing, and feathered glove in the last look, provided by stylist Lael, who also has her own clothing line called Lael By Lael Marshall, whose collection was featured on the Lisa Raye Show last week. 

Everyone I worked with was so cool. It’s amazing how people from different creative fields can come together and work to provide one vision.  We’ve been lucky to have worked with various fashion designers/stylist/photographers/whatever in the past and never had drama on the set.  It makes it easier to flow when everyone is about the finished product and not on their own agenda…

WHAT I WORE

In the first picture I wore a Fish Ear Cuff I made and thrifted disc earrings (one of my favorite).  Then I layered a chunky thrifted bracelet and bangle with a gold nugget ring (one of Vanessa’s favorite).
