This is a very nice article written by the fabulous Nigel Barker his work with the Make-a-Wish foundation. The shoot took place on the 27th of January and Munemi and Catherine Lehtonen were the glam team for this very special shoot:
Last week we were honored once again by being chosen as wishes by two lovely young ladies, Madeline Finnegan and Kalista Green. Both girls had made wishes with the Make A Wish Foundation that we so love here at Studio NB and their dream was to be models for a day. Well we made that happen and some! The Make A Wish Foundation as most people know grants wishes for children who have suffered life limiting illness or are enduring such.
Both our ladies were flown from their hometowns with their families to NYC and put up in hotels with limos and all expenses paid. The day of the shoot the girls showed up promptly at Industria Super Studios ( My favorite NYC studio) where my team we ready and waiting. I had assembled a stella glam squad courtesy of See Management. We had for Hair: Catherine Lehtonen, Make up: Munemi and our Stylist was: Kenny Ho. My personal team comprised as usual of Marcus, Ali and Walter who have worked on many wishes with me. Ali with the help of Boda (Wonder agent from See Management) put together a magnificent selection of booty generously donated from many of our clients - Cover Girl, Redken, Jergins, Bath and Body, Anna Sui, Ed Hardy, GAP, Victoria’s Secret, Pantene, Sephora, Juicy Couture, Stewart Brown, Emu, Radley, Pop, Adrienne Vittadini jewelry, Co Bigelow, Humanity by Sponge Bob shirts, White Horse, Wild Fox,Tracy Reese, O, The Oprah Magazine!!
The whole day was full of smiles and the girls genuinely impressed me with their ability in front of the camera - they have definitely been taking notes from ANTM!!!
A profile story with photos from the shoot will be appearing in Boulevard Magazine out in the May issue.
See Management thanks Nigel Barker and his wonderful team for presenting us with such a great opportunity to do some good.
