SHANNON REED PORTRAIT

Olivia and Iz with Talie Ayers and Francis Roces

Shannon Reed

Talie Ayers - the owner of 3 Little Birds Salon in 17th Ave in Denver - reached out to me to do a shoot and I immediately thought of Iz and Olivia,  Because they both have such amazing hair, I thought why not go banana sandwiches:  Keep the makeup soft and minimal, but go absolutely wild with the hair.  Talie is wonderful - a gentle spirit and also extremely talented and the girls are a dream to work with.    

These last few shots of the girls show them wearing dresses by a wonderful local designer, Francis Roces, who designs under the name Kimono Dragons.  It was a beautiful day - and a truly wonderful opportunity to collaborate with some of my favorite people.  ')
