    Today was the 9th Annual Pure Fashion Show. This is the second year that I’ve had the privilege to photograph the fashion show under Ben Vigil Photography. I’ve posted about Pure Fashion before here and here, so I don’t want to be repetitive. This year, it was another great show.

    Lindee Link opened the show with a wonderful performance.

    And Carried Away performed a great set of Christian music.

    Through the help of Make-A-Wish Foundation, Heather Holtry was able to showcase her own design that will be auctioned off for charity after the show. Heather is battling chronic, disseminated, late-stage Lyme Disease and her wish is to have her design shown in a Pure Fashion Show. Below is Heather.

    And here are two of her own designs of modest gowns.

    The Atlanta Ballet and Pure Fashion presented a special performance by premiere dancer Mary Kate McCarthy in honor of Heather.

    Unfortunately, I can only show a small number of models. The entire show was amazing.

    This is the second year I’ve been asked to work with Ben Vigil for Pure Fashion. Today is their Hair and Makeup Day. Having done this same event last year, there were many young girls I recognize this year. Once again, the event was held at Siggers Hairdressers. Here’s just a few head shots taken of over 60 young girls.

    Oh, how can I forget one last thing. I need to thank Jessen and Susannah for being my personal assistants that day. I couldn’t have done it without their help. Thanks!

    Today was the 8th Annual Pure Fashion Show. Ben Vigil invited me to come photograph the event. Being my first fashion show, I was amazed at everything that was put into making such a great show.

    The Everlife Band came to entertain, and that they did.

  • Pure Fashion Hair and Makeup Day

    It’s Hair and Makeup Day for the Pure Fashion girls. My good friend Ben Vigil introduced me to Pure Fashion last October when he asked me to cover their opening registration day. At that day, I found out what a wonderful organization Pure Fashion was. Please visit their site for more information about the organization. Today is their hair and makeup day where I got a chance to come in and take head shots for the fashion show in a few months. The event was held at Siggers Hairdressers.

    Here’s Amy Siggers herself doing hair for one of the girls. Siggers hairdresser was filled with 82 girsl getting hair and makeup done through out the day.

    Once they were done with hair and makeup, the girls headed upstairs where Stanley Leary and I took head shots. Here’s a quick sample of all the beautiful girls there that day.

    Over 1400 headshots later, we packed up for the day.

    Let me just add one more thing. Not only were these girls patient waiting in long lines for their head shots, they were extreme nice and very considerate. While packing up my equipment, I found a number of ‘thank you’ cards written for me. They were thank you cards from these girls thanking me for taking pictures for them. All I have to say is, their parents must have raised them really well. And I’m sure Pure Fashion had something to do with it too.
