NESOP Open House

Saturday, April 25, 2015

Here's some of my most recent styling work from before I left for Mexico. Late February, a friend of mine, Steph Larsen was asked to put on a live photo-shoot during NESOP's open house (the school she went to for photography). Students were able to watch & ask questions they had regarding her work, her experiences, etc. I collaborated with Steph to execute a vision she had. She shared a few ideas with me and we went to town sharing an inspiration board and exchanging ideas. We wanted a dark, wet, androgynous look and I'd say we nailed it. I went searching for anything in a deep, rich-tone palette as well as trying to mix various prints and textures. Spent a good chuck of my time thrifting a lot of the pieces which I also enjoy. We worked with an incredible make-up artist Dianna Quagenti. It was seriously pure magic watching her bring the vision to life. Also worked with two wonderful models, Jaimee and Anna. Jaimee had modeled for my senior collection look-book about a year ago and I just loved her from that moment then on. Anna, who was equally as awesome to work with, had a totally different look and was super excited to try something different. Such a fun shoot!
