Models are People Too
By Devilin Howard

Hello again everyone. This is Seriph Angel with another beautiful report about the work of Ms. Sandra and the models and staff who helped make this all be possible. . . a photoshoot

  organized by Ms. Sandra.

Her Photographer, Davide Anderson, and Director of Creative Directive Co., Aleyciuss Al-Ali,. were essential to the process!

 Ms. Cassandra, one fierce makeup artist, preparing these young ladies for battle.

and we must not forget about Unique (left) and Marrah (right), the talented hair stylists who let not a strand go unattended.

Each member of the team worked for many hours to create the fabulous photos that will be unveiled soon for the launching of Breeziway's new website and collections!

  All these wonderful pieces were handcrafted by Ms. Sandra herself. . . 

They are all extremely beautiful and very detailed. Wish I could make something like this. It definitely shows she truly is serious about her craft.


There are just so many pieces to choose from. . . The variety is endless.

Why not turn this into a game by looking for these pieces on the models' heads? But the only way to do that is to log in and visit Ms. Sandra’s Facebook page and leave your comments and make sure to like the pieces that you find stunning. To see more of her beautiful work visit her new site at anytime after mid-January.

This next segment provides a little behind the scene flavor. It will give you a taste of what the women behind the veils and lashes are really like. People always wonder if there are real ladies underneath all of the make-up, so here is a piece with some flair on each model before and after they were ready for their close ups.

This is Rachel, the ball of energy and the life of the party. She is just awesome to be around, and she easily lightens up the mood with her dancing and ability to speak to everyone. She loves vintage style and would wear it all the time if she could.

At first glance this young lady is peppy and full of energy and within an instant . . .

She transforms into this fierce tiger ready to step out on the scene.

Next we have Sargam, a returning model from the first photoshoot that I attended, and the 'Face of Breeziway'. She is very humble and did not mind helping out even when ready for her shoot. She is sweet and innocent off set, but once the camera is on her and her hair is down and fluttering in the wind . . .

She can stop anyone in their wake with her gorgeous glance.

Next on my list is the lovely pair Elisabeth (left) and Samantha (right) These two definitely destroy the whole, “models do not get along” stereotype. They seemed extremely close; showing each other messages and photos. It completely changed how I view the social world of models.

These two were completely inseparable and with good reason too. . .

When you take pictures so dangerously stunning together why have it any other way?

Next on our list is Angel. She was the ninja. One minute I saw her and the next she was gone. It was like magic. I would look up, and at one point she could be sitting on the couch and then the next she is in the make -up chair ready for her close up.

In the end this Angel would send you straight to Heaven with her bold beautiful eyes and calming smile.

Next we have Kai and, yes, this is before her make-over. She is very easy to talk to and make conversation with. I would have never guessed she liked making garments for herself. It is nice to know that even though you may be a model, you can always make things for yourself as well.

Talking had to be cut short for it was time for her close up and they needed their star.

And last but not least we have Krystal. Believe me she is as cute as she can be and takes one fierce photo. This young lady does not mind helping  on the job and is another party starter.

This young lady does not play, however, when it comes to her Red Bull. She always had one nearby. Reminds me of myself when it comes to Cream Soda.

Thought I was kidding about taking fierce photos? Pictures like this one of Krystal would give statues made of marble a run for their money.

This segment was to show what models are like during a photo shoot with Breeziway and how different they can be and look off the set. Make-up and jewelry are your weapons, but they do not define you. So remember underneath all the polish and crimps there are real women, who love being who they are.

I hope you have enjoyed yet another segment on the inside of Breeziway and what it takes to make these works of art. That was Seriph’s blog of the day. Over and out.
