This past weekend, we had the pleasure of photographing yet another rising actress among the TV & film industry, Jaina Lee Ortiz. Beginning as an international dancer in her teens, she gradually moved into acting by appearing in student films, a broadway play, and eventually VH1's Scream Queens 2. She was most recently casted as the female lead role alongside Morris Chestnut in the pilot turned series, Rosewood. Cosmo Latina was featuring Jaina in their Winter Issue Beauty: Rebellion story that involved step by step beauty tips as well as some urban shots around the Meatpacking area. She was truly a natural infront of the camera; positioning herself so eloquently, and yet she admitted it was her first photoshoot! We truly enjoyed every minute with Jaina and the spirited Cosmo Latinas crew! (They're all great dancers!)
Be sure to check out the Rosewood premiere scheduled to air next Wednesday, September 23rd at 8pm on Fox!
