I couldn't get over how perfect Natalia looked in every shot. She was a joy to work with as an MUA, and just as much so as a model!

Wonderful work, the model is quite lovely. I adore her expression but I do feel like the picture is lacking something. It comes across as rather boring, despite how lovely the model and her outfit are. Personally, I would add something of interest to the picture, something to capture the readers attention and really make them think about it rather than look over it. You were asking for feedback and I felt this is one of the pieces were I could give some honest opinions. Might I suggest more emotion from the lovely model or even a change in lighting in order to really bring out something eye catching about the picture. She carries a very wild and earthly look to her, even if she faced the viewer, it might spark more interest. A more dramatic lighting would make her stand out more against the blurry and somewhat plain background. But those are just my thoughts and the picture is still very wonderful, you hold wonderful skills with the camera. keep up the awsome work :)

As I've said before this is my favorite of your models. Her emotions are clearly shown on her face and that is the perfect quality for a model. Her makeup is stunning, matching her outfit properly and enhancing her expression. Her pose is great, almost as if she is about to move but is hesitating which goes well with the feelings in this photo. Great job!

Your work is always of a high standard. This one is definitely up there with your best. I love how you match colours and hues. The lipstick colour and the clothing for example; Subtle aspects that really complete the piece.

You know I am a sucker for light and shadow. The hair plays across the face wonderfully and the contrast is great.

Those earrings though? Ewww! :)

Great shot =)

I'm not totally hip about photography (being a traditional pencil, ink and eraser artist), but might I ask what an MUA is? I've seen the term around lately.

Thank you!

MUA stands for 'Make Up Artist,' and don't feel bad, it took me a while to figure out what it meant, too, haha.

Now, I want to know where she shops although I doubt I can pull it off. I love how wispy her hair looks. HER Make up is excellently done, it doesn't look over the top for "day" time but it is bold and balanced. The light makes her look even more gorgeous and the subtle shadows on her cheekbones are wonderful. Great photograph!
