Not the typical Saturday spent at the movies or other such things. Nope. Not even close. Try a Saturday with a dark haired, blue-eyed beauty, a talented hair stylist, and a superb make-up artist in a niche of the Hayward hills. Justina did a great job with the hair, as always, and even added a little touch of her crafty side with mini top hats adorned with feathers and pearls. Tiffany went for the subtle but still stellar eye makeup with a kick of red lipstick. All was picture-perfect! Once make-up and hair were done, we headed to Bijou Restaurant and Bar to set up shoot.
Owner Benjamin Young was more than accommodating and was delighted to have us shoot at his wonderful restaurant, which serves up “contemporary French/California cuisine, offered at reasonable prices, prepared by Executive Chef Christian Nam-Hee using seasonal, fresh and often locally sourced, organic ingredients.” After the shoot, we delighted in a cocktail perfectly dubbed “Strawberry Fields Forever” containing “fresh strawberries and fresh basil from the garden, barenjager Honey Liqueur for some subtle honey flavor, locally distilled 20 Gin and hand pressed orange and lemon juices” – a concoction I definitely recommend!
