Behind the Scenes- Summer '16 Shoot

Posted: Apr 12 2016

Last Sunday, we had our photo shoot for the Summer '16 collection. The theme was fun, sporty, feminine, and of course, summery. I chose fresh, simple makeup and graphic coral nails.

We shot in the South End of Boston, in one of the SoWa studios. SoWa Boston is such a cool collection of artist and makers' spaces, stores, and galleries– definitely worth a visit!

Our photographer, Stephanie Larsen, perfectly understood my vision for the collection, and skillfully orchestrated the set, lighting, and models' poses to get the right vibe.

We had a blast shooting in the studio, and then were so happy the sun came out for our outdoor shoot in the afternoon! We enjoyed perfect #MagicHour lighting. It wasn't very warm, but you'd never know it looking at the shots. Models are hardcore!

We even got to play with a few pups! Special thanks to Bo for having the courage to make an on-camera appearance despite feeling a little self-conscious about his new haircut.


And this little guy was just walking by with his owner and was so excited to see us, we had to borrow him for a few shots!

 We ended the day on a high note, playing with bubbles!


Big thanks to all the wonderful ladies who participated!
