I present… drum roll please…. Orange Olive Hair Gallery!
Orange Olive is an awesome salon located in NoDa in Charlotte, NC. All of the cool people in town get their hair done there. It’s just a fact.
For this shoot, I was asked to get shots of the salon itself and headshots of the lovely ladies who keep the salon a hotspot in NoDa. I shot a mix of fisheye and a standard wide for the different areas of the salon. Personally, I am a sucker for fisheye, so those are the ones you get to see here. 🙂
This is the salon. I love it! Great colors!
Hairdryers hanging from the ceiling. Seriously awesome!
A few of their products!
And finally… Look at all of these hotties! Ow ow!
Call the Orange Olive today to make an appointment for them to whip your wig!

The series is back and BIGGER than ever, you guys. Oh my gosh.. I can’t even explain how excited I am about this. About a month of work went into this shoot today.. we are stepping it up a notch on the series and incorporating designers and wardrobe into our artistic animal shoots. I am so happy and excited and inspired!!!
Today’s shoot features Ms. Christin Sorensen rocking a killer dress made by Candace K Styling and sporting makeup by Subreen Davis Makeup Artistry. I am so so so lucky to have such a talented group of girls on my hands… It is an incredible thing!!! Ok Ok, now I’ll shut up and show you the goods!
We will start off with a few behind the scenes photos just for fun. The getting ready process is always a fun time to spend with the girls. We were all constantly snacking on donut holes which made Christin quite jealous… You see, she was glued to her chair as to not mess up her body paint while it was drying.. So in the below pictures, you will see some generosity as we feed her donut holes. Candace helped Subreen with the body paint to help pale out Christin’s complexion. Final touch: paint her nails black!
Once to the location in the University Area, Subreen was able to put the finishing touches on Christin’s back and Candace got her dress all set. We got the occasional funny stare from spectators.. I’m sure they were wondering what was up with the koi fish in the river. My favorite, though, are the people who pretend like that don’t notice. You can see a look of confusion on their face but they don’t want to be rude and stare… Gets me every time.
Happy Birthday again to Laura, the set decorator!
And now, I give you…. *drum roll*… Christin, the Koi Fish!
