Whitney photographed by Randee St. Nicholas, one of her favorite photographers who she worked with many times over the years. This photo was taken in 1992 in Los Angeles as part of a photo shoot.
Mid-1980s photo of Whitney with songwriter Michael Masser, who figured very prominently in her career as he wrote so many of her early hits including “Saving All My Love for You,” “All At Once,” “Didn’t We Almost Have It All,” “You’re Still My Man,” “After We Make Love,” “Hold Me” (with Teddy Pendergrass) and of course her favorite song “The Greatest Love of All.”
Whitney had two favorite makeup artists – Kevyn Aucoin in the beginning and later Roxanna Floyd, both of whom are no longer with us. Early in her career, Whitney worked with Kevyn and she absolutely loved him. Now there will be a documentary about him, which will include Whitney.
