It’s not often that I take part in the NYC party scene, but this was one I could not pass up. SELF Magazine celebrated their music issue last night at Hotel on Rivington. I was there, have photos to prove it, and yes that is Trey Songz!
My first job with the magazine was a fitness story in Turks & Caicos with Lida Moore Musso and the most current shoot I did was the fashion story featured in the July issue with Evyan Metzner. Dewy Nicks captured some more than poppy images of one very gorgeous model, Eve and Trey Songz! I saw the story for the first time last night and it may just be one of my favorites.
I can’t even count how many shoots I have done with SELF, but I do know the people I have worked with at the magazine are special people who I can truly call friends. You can tell by the photos we actually do like each other…at least I hope you can tell!
Yet another perk of what I do as a makeup artist is have the opportunity to work with some of the most amazing people. I travel and shoot with various crews, yet I am constantly trying to find a free night in my schedule to meet up with everyone just to hang out and catch up. I have been known to organize “reunion gatherings.”
Last night gave me the opportunity to have a quick visit with my SELF family. As I was bouncing around I realized again that I am lucky to have fallen into this career, meet the people I have met, and be creative all at the same time. Don’t plan on trading it in anytime soon.
Thank you SELF- I can’t wait for the next shoot and of course another party!
