BTS: Online Store Photo Shoot

Who: Love Collins Custom Clothier
What: Online Store Photo Shoot
Wear: BTS Behind-the-Seams

It was a chilly Saturday morning outside of my mother's townhouse that I grabbed my twenty plus looks to shoot pics for the online store.  With the help of a great team our eight hour shoot went by with two meals, and several dance breaks.

The goal of any shoot is to get "the shot".  I was going for a catalog feel as opposed to an editorial layout. When people are buying clothes they want to be clear about the texture, the colors, and most importantly the fit. At the same time I wanted to make sure it was till exciting and inspiring. I needed to make sure the clothes did the talking while the hair, make-up, and styling were just a punctuation!

So lets start at the beginning...

... with the most important meal of the day.
i served fresh fruit, range juice, and cocoa, water, and  few sweet treats.

Give the people what they want!!!
one thing I know for sure, when it comes to satisfying taste buds, people love something a little sweet and a little fried. 

Let's meet the crew...
Photographer Milan @milancarter
Getting his playlist together. We listened to jams from his fanny pack speakers. 

Hair: Erin (@ELStylesLA)

Make-up: Rebekah (@rebekahaladdin)
What would any project be without last minute changes? Our fab make-up artist jumped right in and doubled as our model. Whew, close call!!!

Model Kayla Brown (@iamkaylanicole)

the assistants
(l to r) Cassidy Lyric, Cherish, & Alexis J

We put jewelry and accessories on trays for organizing and handling.

For hair I wanted a loose wispy top knot that looked casual and feminine, yet effortlessly pulled together.
The make-up was simple. A soft face, pretty skin with a bold lip, and highlighted cheekbones. #totallyobsessed

lunch time: a spread of deli sliced chicken and turkey, romaine lettuce, tomatoes, and muenster cheese on butter topped mini croissants. washed down with Sparkling flavored ciders.

That's a wrap!
It was a long chilly day, and everyone was awesome. Thank you thank you thank you.. for helping to make the newest addition to the Love Collins Brand come to life!!!!! 

Totally Obsessed xoxo Love
