stephanie vovas

I’ve written about LA based photographer Stephanie Vovas a lot over the years. Last fall I included some of her always sassy, 1960s B-movie-esque work in the show I hung at The Fig House, and I’m thrilled that she’s also one of the artists featured in my book. When we finally met in person last November, it was friends at first sight! Speaking of amazing soul-sisters in LA, I also met my now very dear friend Autumn Reeser a couple of years ago, thanks to twitter. She’s a fantastic actor {Hawaii 5-0, Last Resort, Entourage, The OC…} and founder of Move LifeStyle. Anyway, being the matchmaker that I am, I just knew that these two fabulous, fun, beautiful, talented, LA based women had to meet, and obviously, do a shoot… and they did! Here are the very sultry, very vintage results of a day they spent together this past March:

See! I knew they’d make magic! … and then, well, I may have found my way in front of Stephanie’s camera for a minute or two as well. Ready? Oh boy, here we go…

I got Vovas’d! So fun, but also really weird to get that much attention… we had our hair transported back to the 60’s by the lovely Nicole, our smokey makeup applied by the always fabulous Stephen, and then of course, Stephanie and her camera transformed us into vintage bombshells! Autumn made it look so easy, and I did my best. Stephanie also caught a little bit of “behind-the-scenes” action, which was fantastic as it mainly involved playing with Autumn’s sweet little boys:

It was an amazing day spent with a group of truly lovely people, who I am so happy to call my friends. Thanks for taking me along on this very glamorous ride!

ps. Also, I got to hold that lil peanut for a reallllllly long time! ♥

    ah, thanks girls! it was so much harder to be in front of the camera than i thought it would be… i am much more comfortable art directing behind the scenes, but stephanie made me look good! ; )
