This is beautiful work! I love how her hair, the plants, and her dress are all very soft and flowing - there's a minimalistic appearance to them. Her skin also brings in that ivory, subdued color scheme, creating almost an innocent appearance.

Her makeup is very, VERY well done in contrast to all of that. The darkness around her eyes and the bold lip color really pop and give a stunning focal point to the picture. The lighting is perfect, given how it creates almost angular planes on her face, adding to the overall ethereal quality. I just love everything about this picture - it seems sharp and soft at the same time (which are two things I never imagined could exist in one photograph).

Great job, and I'll definitely take the time to look through the rest of your work!

this is chillingly beautiful, as is all your work. how did you come to decide to crop this slightly off-centre? It works so well and adds so much, yet wouldn't have been an obvious decision to many. You are genius. x

I actually contemplated cropping it dead center for a little bit, but off-center was just somehow a little more special. Hours of contemplation... ._.

I think this photo is amazing...but if I had to criticize, it would be the model's expression. It kinda looks like she's taking a professional duckface photo.

I really enjoy the asthetics of the piece. Overall the lighting is very well done. However I wish that there was more juxtaposition between the softness of the face over all and the angularity of the neckline of the dress and the plant life. The necklace is a nice touch. My suggestion would be to maybe have a necklace whose chain is a bit longer to create even more angles.

I love how the make-up is done it makes the model have more edge, especially the eyes it makes it look deeper and more mesmerizing.. The hair, dress and the flowers surrounding the model totally compliment each other and finally the necklace is a very nice touch..overall i love how this shot is taken :) more power Ms. Z

I love the red in her eye make-up! Inspired! What a great art director to think of that for such a green, flowery shoot. It makes it disturbing, almost sinister, in this very subtle way that messes with you! It's like you want to trust her because of the leafy, innocuous styling, but those eyes are just like "Trust me if you dare".
Gives me chills! Love it!
