30 and Fishing!

My gal pal "Maah-ren" has known me  since we were 12. We met again at Community College where we both studied Biology and continued studying together at the University of the West Indies.  We loved Biology but were not so big on long hours in the library so we always had a "system". Maren branched off into fisheries. On the other hand you couldn't get me into a fishing boat if you tried. Then Maren became a certified diver ..HA!!! You know who didn't join her. The only thing I dive into is a sale bin. However having completed her Masters in Environmental Resource Management Maren moved to St. Vincent and is a Fisheries Biologist based in St. Vincent and the Grenadines and holds the post of Research Graduate in Research and Resource Assessment.

Being my best friend you would think she too would be a diva-fied hottie with false lashes, nails, weave, and heels. Nothing could be further from the truth. In fact the sight of my lash collection causes Maren to shake her head in awe.  I finally got to do her makeup in between travels. Who knew fish could get you from Tobago, to Iceland, to Puerto Rico and back. I hooked up with her in between conventions and meetings to sit for my 30 and.. series. Maren chose 30 and Fishing !!!! You can decide what she is fishing for when you see her shots. But looking as great as she does here,she certainly won't have to fish for compliments.

Maren named this look the Parrot fish. ( I know, right ? WHAT?") The parrot fish lives on the reef and the colours we ended up using, selected by Maren, reminded her of this gorgeous reef fish.

Maren Before

We shot this at Pebbles and Himal did a great job. Maren is radiant . Of course to get the shot we had to cross over some shaky boards and broken beams. Being the sane one of the bunch I let Maren's sister touch up her makeup while I supervised from a safe distance.

I don't know about you but this sure looks threatening and dangerous to me.

I was thrilled to be able to shoot with my buddy and had a blast finally getting to glamify Maren.
