Last year I decided to make some changes in my growing business and pulled some of our regular advertising budgets to invest in traveling and editorials. I knew I wanted to start shooting film and more fine art work and that shooting editorials was the best way to start that process. In total, I hosted, styled and photographed 12 styled shoots last year alone. It was quite an endeavor and one I often thought I was crazy for attempting but somehow each month a new one came together so perfectly.
I can honestly say I had four favorites of those twelve, and this is one of them! We found this awesome studio loft in LA to host it and brought in beautiful tables and florals and candles to romance the very industrial feeling space. My incredible florist, Aleah Holakoui, brought in the most stunning bouquets and centerpieces to adorn the tablescape I created. It was a warm day and there wasn’t much airflow so we were all a bit toasty, but all together with my incredible team, I think we created the most beautiful styled editorial yet! The inspiration for this one was a soft garden theme inside a very industrial space, the flowers were soft blooms with a combination of peaches and blush and mauve with deep rich eggplant and lots of greenery!
Simply in love with this journey I’m on… it’s been a year of self-discovery, a year of kindling old passions like reading and creating art and traveling…. it’s been a year of funding new passions like styling for shoots and magazines and shooting film…. I’m so excited for my 30s coming up next week! I am ready to celebrate past accomplishments, push forward toward new ones and keep learning more about myself.
