The Kinda Heels that End in Road Rash – Introducing Kirsten Petritz – Classic with a Twist

She strolled into the studio from makeup in nude heels –

the kind of heels I can already imagine myself in.


Only in my version it ends with a rock,

road rash and the emergency room.


She looked like she stepped off a 1950’s movie set and was headed to the Oscar’s.

Hair shoulder length with big barrel curls,

makeup simple with a red lip,

wearing a black romper.


This timeless look deserved nothing less than a classic color palette of black, red and silver,

yet contemporary look of corrugated metal and leather couch of that complimented her bold lip and weaved top.

The lighting a soft version of the classic portraits you see of Marilyn Monroe and Audrey Hepburn using the traditional Hollywood paramount lighting with hot lights,

yet contrasty enough to contour her cheekbones, bring out her dimples, and draw you into her eyes.


“I like classic,” she said,

after I complimented her on her ability to pull it all together into a fashionable look complete with wardrobe from Mirror Mirror, makeup choice with Tasha Hall-Rich, hair styling and shoes.

I’m pretty much stoked to see what she brings for her senior portraits.

Will she stick with her signature classic look with a contemporary twist for most of her outfits, or come up with some other sort of new concept that will blow my mind?
