A Roaring Product Shoot

I love fashion photography and product photography, so when I get to work with a designer or a store to help feature their clothing it's a treat for my creative soul.  Coming up with the concept, figuring out how and what to feature, finding models and creative team, location scouting...it's a lot of planning but when it comes together it's magic.

I'd worked with Va Va Vooom a few years ago and was so honored to do another project with them.  I saw a grey, silk lingerie jumper in their store that inspired the whole shoot, the roaring 20's.  I wanted fur, silk, jewels, champagne and sexy strong women to show off this amazing and iconic time period, my dear models, Jillian Summers and Emma Dubin.

We were able to use the Crow and Quill for a shooting space, which worked out so perfectly.  After scouting through various locations that didn't quite fit, I went there for drinks one night and fell in love with their eclectic furniture selections and vintage wallpaper backdrop.  You just can't stage this stuff!

Thank you to my amazing team that came together on Easter to make this happen!! If you haven't worked with any of them, you're missing out! Check them out here in town.  I adore them!!

Have some fashions that need photographing, or a look book put together?  Contact me and let's see what we can create together.

Golden Light and the Bluebird

I recently teamed up with jewelry designer Jessica Hall of Bluebird Design to do a summer product shoot for her latest jewelry line.  Our vision of lace, boho fashions with a light, summery feel was the perfect pairing for her colorful, handcrafted jewelry, highlighting birds and silver feathers in earrings, bracelets and necklaces.  She wanted to show that the pieces were simple enough to be worn on their own, or could be fashioned with multiple strands of contrasting styles and colors for a fun, chic look.  

First we started at a fun little picnic with vintage books and tea cups I've been collecting from antique shops over the years. Then we caught the last of the golden light in some grassy fields on top of a hill overlooking the mountain side, and danced to a jazzy playlist on someone's iphone in the distance.  We laughed as we made a mad dash towards the end to get all the pieces in before the sun went behind the mountain.  I've never seen the sun so golden.  Thank you to Jessica, Coco and Emma for a wonderful day!  You ladies are amazing.
