Bodysuits and beauty

Here's a fun little bunch of images from a recent shoot. Samira is the sweetest girl, but we encouraged her to put on her "angry eyes" and give us some attitude. And you know, she really has a spark. So much fun! Frown, laugh... glare, giggle... shout, crack up... all the way through the shoot.

Skirting the issue...

Years ago I had a concept to do a shoot with just skirts... skirts as tops, skirts as dresses, skirts as hats, skirts as ponchos, and skirts as... well, skirts. I had put a team together and we were all ready to roll when the model had accident and the whole project was shelved. The original model is fine, btw, but we were kind of put off the idea - bad karma? Anyway, fast forward a couple of years and I was ready to try it again.

I'm happy to report that everything went wonderfully. Not only were there no accidents, but the team was great and Matthew is so easy to work with and I really enjoyed the day.

So here are the original sketches, and the execution, thanks to Lauren for the fun styling!

Shoe Warehouse F/W 2010, shot at Hycroft Mansion... what a cool place! Made me think of the Great Gatsby and champagne and garden parties, sigh...

Dark Mood

Also check out the video, I think it has created a deliciously creepy, dark mood.

But wait, more shoes!

...and here's the second campaign, this time for Joneve. Check out the video on the Joneve site too, you can actually see my hands doing make-up on the girls! I know, a big thrill for you all. :)

Shoes shoes shoes!

At long last I can share some images form a job I did earlier this summer, sometimes it's hard to wait for seasonal shots to make an appearance. Anyway, here's shoe shoot part one (Sterling) with two more campaigns coming up. Thanks especially to Gerry for asking me back, what a nice group of people to work with!

Plastic dresses, real model

In a follow-up inspired either by our previous Paper Dress shoot, or by the large amount of plastic strips available in our studio... either way, a really good excuse to have some fun.

Be sure to check out the little "behind-the-scenes" on Fred's blog, Kelsey is such a cutie! :)
