Happy birthday Fishead magazine!!

The team and I have had the pleasure of doing all the makeup and hair styling for the fashion and front cover pages of Fishead magazine ever since it has started, this birthday shoot our youngest team member, Natalie, did a wonderful job assisting me and we had plenty of red wine and cake at the end of it ( Natalie managed to wear her wine home he he).
Monday was Fishead's official 1st birthday so it started the day with the latest Fishead mag to hit the shelves of Aoteroa.
As always the very talented Samantha Hannah did the styling and Tim Watson worked his magic with the photographic Lens.   The Fishead shoot was held at Tim's savvy studio, Studio 62 in Petone, and I was lucky enough to be given Immersion mineral cosmetics, to use on our gorgeous model Anna (from kirsty Bunny agenecy), to get that beautiful new mum glow.
I wanted to share with you the 1st birthday shoot and some of the cute behind the scene numbers.
I also need to add that I am the proud mum of the spunky wee male model in the latest fashion pages, Jaxson Cook, my 6 year old who now thinks of himself as famous and is wondering when people will ask for his autograph!

Sophie Hambleton our front cover model was a delight to work with.  Inspiration... you guessed it, Marilyn Monroe

The kiwi way, butterflies hanging by a fishing rod!
Inspiration - the kiwi families and mothers day

Jaxson (my baby) and Samantha Hannah's ( Stylist) girls, Thomasina and Xavia.  The kids all have butterflies in their hands.

Anna the beautiful model. Immersion mineral foundation gives her a fab glow

I used Immersion mineral foundation on Anna's skin for that fresh dewy look with Bobbi Brown eye shadows in smouldering bronzes and Stilla lip gloss

What a gorgeous little boy if I may say so myself!
Anna's curls are Richard Kav curls

Sophie's final look before it goes to press.  She was air brushed and for her flawless finish with Mac's silicon based airbrusing foundation. She is wearing  Mac eye shadows, Ruby woo lips, black cream gel liner and Ardell long single lashes with some shorts ones also, just for good measure
