The pit crew hard at work. Makeup by Dianna Quagenti (diannaquagenti.com) and hair styling by the ladies of Leon and Co. (leonandco.com).

Makeup supplies at rest (for a moment).

A shoe buffet! Styling by Dawn Hunt.

Daisy getting some final touches before shooting begins.

The cover guy getting his turn in the hair department.

Chris's father, Ed, came along to provide moral support and comic relief. I'd like to nominate Ed for "Father of the Year."

Cover photographer Adam Detour (adamdetour.com) at work. We really did tie Chris up-- what a good sport.

Pondering the final results. Almost done!
