Florence Behind the Scenes : Five Women A Photographer and A Makeup Artist

This was my first time visiting Florence and can I just say it was an intense and memorable visit...not just for the city itself but also for the work I did and the people I met... I spent thirtteen days working in the heart of Florence with Wendy K. Yalom , an exceptional branding photographer and five inspirational women all of whom where there to be captured through Wendy's lens and made over by moi ! Each and every woman including Wendy were a delight to work with but most of all they were all women I could relate to as everyone one of them had their own special story to tell ... Their stories needed to come across both through the lens and their image.  Each woman has gifted me with their friendship , wisdom and life experience...that is the best gift I coud have asked for. I will let the pictures speak for themselves... they were all taken behind the scenes by me. For the professional pictures taken by Wendy you will have to wait a little longer and then visit my website!! Grazie from the bottom of my heart to all the women and men  I have had the honour to work with in Florence  .  Please check each of their websites noted in this post.

The first of the five women was Josephine Auciello ( link ) seen here above and below.

The Audrey Hepburn Experience in the Heart of Rome

This past weekend I once again had the amazing privilege to work with the charming and inspirational Grace Kelly founder and creator of CityGirlConfidence and The Audrey Hepburn Experience Event in Rome . As you might already know Grace works with women from all over the world. She helps them transform their carreers . She has created this event in order for women to step into their powerful brands with beauty Hepburn style!! My job was to capture these two beautiful women's innermost beauty by doing their makeup and hair and let them  shine through the camera. Shooting in a city like Rome makes my job quite easy...the bright sun and warn colored buildings enwrap these women's beauty and allows them to show their true colors. Both Natalia and Barbara were a pleasure to work with... each had special qualities that I bring along with me in my heart  . I hope you enjoy these pictures and that you might want join me and Grace Kelly  ( link ) for the next Audrey Hepburn Experience in La Bella ROMA !!
