Can you keep a secret? Rebecca can. She knew she wanted to surprise her husband with something really special for his 40th.
A fashion shoot with a touch of tasteful boudoir seemed like just the ticket.
Like a lot of women, Rebecca was a tad nervous. I totally know the feeling, having been on the other side of the lens too. For some morale boosting, she brought along her friend Meg who proved to be a great supporter and kept us laughing throughout the day.
Even though Rebecca came in comfy, casual clothes, I saw instantly that she had a glamour girl inside! I knew that with a makeover from our talented pro Brittany Myzeqari, the right lighting and posing, Rebecca was going to be a total knockout!
It's not every day you get a chance to transform into a covergirl!
Rebecca was such a fabulous collaborator before she even set foot in the studio. Her work planning really paid off. She followed our wardrobe guide to a T-- bringing a slinky sequin dress, delicate negligee, beautiful green blouse to bring out her eyes, and this little show-stopper-- a hot red dress!
When we were planning her dream shoot mood board on Pinterest, I asked if she'd ever done red lipstick. Absolutely! Turns out she went to town creating a 1940's inspired glamour girl look for a party a year ago and the crowd went wild.
Yes! I'd say red lips were definitely in order for this smokin' Beauty shoot!
Speaking of smokin... How do you like this little number?
Gotta tell ya, the posing here was all Rebecca! At this point in the shoot, she was warmed up and really getting the knack for supermodel contortions and gestures. For something fun, I challenged her to change up her pose... and change... and change... and change. This look appeared spontaneously (between a lot of giggling moments, of course).
Love the tousled bedroom hair. And that look in her eyes...? Wow! I'm thinking this might be the best birthday present ever!
Yes, I love, love, love all of Rebecca's sultry model looks, but have you seen her gorgeous smile? Stunning!
Rebecca, you are a work of art! I hope you remember how gorgeous you are every time you look at these portraits.
And if you don't remember, just ask your husband! He'll tell ya! Thank you for all the fun we had dreaming up this shoot and making it a reality. You are a beautiful person inside and out and working with you was a delight!
