SHOOTING LOVE & HIP-HOP’S CHRISSY…
This weekend our East Coast team had a photo shoot with Vh1’s Chrissy Monroe, from Love & Hip-Hop New York capturing the reality star like you’ve never seen her before-exploring a range of fashions; unleashing diverse style, and matchless beauty.
We asked our production team…
“What was your favorite moment, shooting with Chrissy Monroe?”
Jason Thomas, Senior Photographer
It’s always a pleasure when a model or talent is uninhibited and free to express who they are. Chrissy Monroe was a pleasure for this reason as she was free- both in front of the camera ; posing freely giving us that personality and charm ; and behind the scenes- opening up about her experience on Love & Hip-Hop New York.
Simeone Snowden, Assistant Creative Director
My favorite moment shooting with Chrissy was when she said “Wow I don’t recognize this woman!”after the styling hair and makeup was complete- that gave me certainty that the Manik crew stepped up to the plate and got the job done. I also loved Chrissy’s down to earth attitude which made it extremely easy to work with her; she seemed to enjoy the overall “MANIK EXPERIENCE” .
Christine Caraway, Makeup Artist & Hairstylist
My favorite moment shooting with Chrissy was when she was finally ready in her first look……she was twirling and genuinely smiling from ear to ear. In that moment, I didn’t see the sex kitten she is normally portrayed as; instead, I saw a fun girl and a loving woman- open, optimistic, driven, and ready for the next chapter in her life.
