Spring/Summer 2017 Collection: Behind the Scenes Photoshoot

Soooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo much happening this week (and why I went missing on this blog…very sorry about that). Behind the scenes, I’ve worked on two photoshoots- including this one for my upcoming Spring/Summer 2017 collection. Plus meetings. Plus volunteering for International Women’s Day (one such activity over at Direct Relief, lending a hand with my friend Laurie and 70 other women putting together post-surgical care packages for women affected by Obstetric Fistula). It was an intense week. But vital. This afternoon through tomorrow evening, however, I rest. But first, these behind the scenes shots… One more post a little later today. Until then, I hope you’ve got a good Friday going!

Behind the Scenes on the Spring/Summer collection shoot

How dreamy is the behind the scenes video that Erin made during the Spring/Summer collection photoshoot? Really dreamy, I think.  She was a filming ninja; I had no idea she caught 3/4 of this. Such a lovely gift. Thanks, Erin! I’m in the process of editing the photos, but intend to have the launch up by early next week. I’ve gotten back into making more of the bridal hair flowers again and I’m happy with that so… soon soon… and exciting!

Style 22 / Ojai, California Wildflowers

The other week, when the Ojai, California wildflowers made their Spring appearance, Myriah and I jumped at the chance for this impromptu photoshoot. It was raining and raining and raining, but then as i was driving into town the rain stopped, the sky broke into blue and sunshine. These are the resulting photos from a shoot that culminated in the most magical rainbow. It was a perfect day, you guys. The absolute most perfect day. I never go without a clip or flower or ribbon in my hair, so this one (above) is a peek into my going to bed hair. My waking up in the morning hair is far more disheveled, though. And then the rainbow… I had never seen one quite like it. No picture can do it justice because, I swear, we were right under it…vibrant, radiant, and every single color was visible. A double rainbow even. A double, all colors, full arch, everlasting rainbow over a sundrenched field of yellow mustard flowers… See? Magical. [ photography: myriah bujak ]

Winter Floral Photoshoot

That gold. The deep winter red. The light. My heart explodes with how powerful these simply styled images are. Part two from the Designlovefest floral photoshoot with Jesse Chamberlin and Moon Canyon (part one here!). And what a pretty color combo to dive into Christmas week… There’s wall space in my home that I want to update in the new year and I’ve got my eye on one of these to fill it in. Now to narrow down the choices.

Designlovefestival Photoshoot with Jesse Chamberlin and Moon Canyon

I couldn’t wait to share this first round of photographs from my stint with Jesse Chamberlin and Kristen from Moon Canyon at the Designlovefest floral photoshoot. I just got these images a few hours ago and have no restraint with holding off on posting. Clearly. The shoot was simply based on the premise of a single type of flower and a white backdrop. And look at how powerful simplicity can be… The natural light, the pop of color from the marigolds. I felt angelic. And here’s the action shot! (I’m giddy, you guys.) p.s. I’ll tell you a little back story, if you’d like to hear. This photoshoot was in LA the day before Marsy passed away. I drove down for it and then hauled my butt right back to him (I am thankful that Mars was with someone who loves him for the half day I was away). And anyway, I will always remember this experience as uplifting when I was otherwise beside myself with sadness. So thank you, Jesse and Kristen and the team at the Designlovefestival, for that afternoon. I will think of Mars being at peace and full of light every time I look at these. Because sunshine and hope and love, you guys. Sunshine, hope, and love. p.p.s. that lovely dress was my friend’s mother’s wedding dress from the 1960s!

Behind the Scenes / AW 2015 Photoshoot

Want a peek into the AW 2015 collection? It’s set to launch in about a week, so I thought to share some behind the scenes shots. I got Myriah on to photograph the images of lovely Erin modeling and, my gosh, she nailed it. They nailed it. And aren’t these bts captures so great?! Me, Erin, and Myriah. So freaking cute. Onward to last minute details before these accessories, and more, become available for order in the shop. Countdown begins…now.
