My afternoon with Marilyn

Merricka (aka Marilyn) and I met a couple of years back when she participated in a Share the Love portrait session. We had a great time and continued to stay in touch. When we started talking about her portrait session a couple of months ago I could quickly see the session was going to be as unique as Merricka. I couldn't wait! 

Marilyn Monroe was our inspiration and as you can see Merricka transformed into this Hollywood starlet quite naturally. She took on the role with a beauty and style all her own. Merricka's hair and makeup was done by the fabulous Liz Washer of Makeup Artistry by Liz. Liz is incredibly talented and whenever I get to work with her for a wedding or a portrait session I have to pinch myself. I think I might have squealed when Merricka walked through the door of the studio, she was breathtaking! 

Here are just a few photos from my afternoon with Marilyn. Enjoy! xoxo
