The New Year always seems to bring a certain excitement, as if we all get to press the “restart” button and put all the stuff that was dragging us down in 2011, in the past. By the end of the year I was super bummed about how slow modeling was going and was looking forward to the spring season and all the job opportunities it would bring. But before I could start throwing myself into dozens of castings my agents thought it would be best to shoot some new material for my book.
So, today I met up with photographer Jana Cruder to shoot a spring concept editorial that exemplified all the trends of the new season. Stylist, Nicole Chandler, incorporated a lot of reds, fuchsias and tangerines, combined with color blocking, high waisted pants, over-sized hats and grandma blouses. These styles were complimented perfectly by hair stylist/ makeup artist, Jenna Baltes, who used the most incredible lip colors for each shot. It was a huge success and we got every look done rather quickly. We managed to shoot a full eight-look-story along with an extra look for submissions. The goal is for the editorial to make it in to Zink Magazine, so fingers crossed that it happens!
My friend and fellow blogger Laura Hayden inspired me to make a “behind-the-scenes” video to amp up my blog and show all of you what it’s like on set. I hope you enjoy it and I will post the pictures from the editorial as soon as I have them! Thanks!
