Macarons make me nervous.
The amount of preparation, worry, and prayers required to make these finicky brats is unbelievable. Yet, they bring so much satisfaction when successful.
With some assistance from my friends Han and Dee (the model for this shoot), we conquered!
I was inspired by how unassuming these macarons looked. Pretty on the surface, complex on the inside – it is one feisty woman.
So the words came into my head: confident, sophisticated, cheeky. And that was how I created this look for Dee.
