Chrysalis: A Day of Firsts

On August 14, 2014 was an amazing day where our TMI firsts came together.   A photo shoot pairing our first TMI graduate, Bryana Kimura, with our first ever TMI model, Nikki Richards, was executed in the  usual, TMI…bigger than life, manner. With photography by Jillian Sara, Jewelry by Royally Spoiled and the assistance of Daisha Feliz and Frankee Escobedo, this amazing creative team came together to produce an amazing work of art.

Remembering an Autumn Walk with Nikki Richards and Heather Flores

While flipping through the past year of progress that TMI graduates have made I came across a shoot that was easy, fun and simply beautiful. Model Nikki Richards is always a pleasure to work with and the viewer of the images is often deprived of the fun she brings to the set.

Instructor Rachel Riggs and artist Heather Flores were hard at play for this fabulous set with this wonderful  person. Everything fell into to place to capture the images and the  was plenty of laughter.

Outstanding work from Heather. Oh what fun to be an artist!!

Neo Industrial 4 - Copy

Neo Industrial

This shoot concept was designed by TMI graduate Emily Sanchez. She wanted to showcase the versatility of Sarah’s jewelry. She fused the mechanics of Steam Punk with the vibrant edginess of Punk.  She brought fellow graduate Rainbow Chatman and instructors Becky Williams-Gomez and Rachel Riggs to make her vision come to life.

Sarah Rhames, the creative genius behind Royally Spoiled, custom designed the pieces for this shoot and lucky us at TMI got to watch her in action!

We Three

The Makeup Imaginarium‘s  instructors had a ridiculous amount of fun with extraordinary stylist and good friend Kim Welch Klingborg of Spellbound Fashions. The school is well known for building sets for outside projects and they did not break tradition. The shoot was designed to capture the “Spirit of Halloween” and this crew followed through by bringing in years of saved up props including an old fireplace mantle, a cauldron, a rusty chandelier and of course a few skeletons, bugs and a handmade voodoo doll. Let’s not forget the fabulous wardrobe. It was hard not to want to run off with the pieces provided by Miss Be. If you haven’t seen her clothes you may want to check out Kim’s site!! These are things every woman needs so I’ll place a link below ;D

With the set ready, it’s time to put the classic tale of the Stygian witches into play. More commonly known as the three old hags from Clash of the Titans, the sisters were once young and beautiful but  had grown accustomed to sharing among themselves and were well known as being quite the “man killers”. Their names were  Dread, Alarm, and Horror. That alone speaks volumes to who these three were.

 TMI and Spellbound found three lovely young women ready to play the part and boy did they. Each brought their own unique spin to the shoot, helping to make the sisters come to life. These girls were lively and a kick to work with. It was amusing to watch them flip between happy and scary at the snap of the flash. Rachel did a great job catching some of those moments for you as well.

We are proud to bring you the behind the scenes creation and completed photo shoot of “We Three”.

Beauty Basic

Gabrielle Hernandez, Adrienne McDowell, Jaski Sidhu and Kristin Shanen show off their artistic skills in their first TMI photo shoot.   Only 2 weeks into the course (and only allowed to use a few basic products), these girls rocked our face off with their amazing makeup abilities, proving that their artistry was anything but basic.
