Sierra Tasi-Baker jump of joy photo of the day – February 7, 2014

This is from a creative night shoot I did recently on a very very cold night! Make up by Brandi Leifso of Evelyn Iona Cosmetics Hair by Matthew J Schubert and Megumi Hasegawa at T’Sala Salon Spa and wrap by Himikalas Baker of Touch of Culture pants by Alano Edzerza.

This was kind of an outtake from the shoot, we laughed at how much Sierra resembles a troll pencil with her blue hair sticking straight up in the air. Amazing how fun and laughing makes even the cold bearable 🙂

Have a fantastic day!

Look out on life with amazement…

“Look out on life with amazement, not shock. The variety, the diversity, the manner of every person, the beauty amidst the drudgery, the contrasts, the opportunities, the heroism in the lives of ordinary people, your gifts, your talents, your friends – even just one friend – is all awesome. Live in awe, and entertain wonder, and you will be knocking on the door of true love. Don’t kill it with cynicism or criticism, don’t sabotage your life with moaning and complaining. Open the eyes in your head and the eye in your intellect and choose to see the stunning, awesome, diverse beauty of life happening around you right now. Meet it with your heart and you will enrich and be enriched in one single moment.” – Unknown
