Today I’m at our cover shoot, along with our photo crew.  First thing this morning our model got her hair and makeup done while the rest of us gossiped, devoured the breakfast buffet, and tried on all the fun shoes.  With lighting and styling, prepping for a cover takes a loooong time—we managed to get in just a couple of shots before breaking for lunch (do you notice a theme here?).  Now we’ve settled down to work again and are really in a shooting groove.  Our cover model looks beautiful and radiant—it’s comforting to know that even natural beauties still need a couple of hours of hair and makeup to look cover-ready!  One of my favorite parts of shooting is being surrounded by beautiful bouquets–the studio is full of huge, full-blown roses and brilliant tulips.  Now I’ve got to run back to the set to change the veil.  Guess what—I’m still wearing those platforms from this morning!  Happy spring.  —Ellen, Un-Veiled
