About two months ago, Michelle Herrick and I met at First Friday, and since then we've already done two fashion photography collaborations. The one I'm sharing with you today is our first love child - "Wild About Sequins."
The concept came to me while I was driving wearing my sequined infinity scarf when all of these dots of light began dancing around in my car. I thought it would be great to do a shoot around the glittery, trendy dots, so I shared the thought with Michelle, and she said, "Let's do it!"
I brought my good friend and hair stylist Kim Cornwell onto the team. We decided to have fun with several hair styles. We incorporated braids, wild messy waves and definitely my awesome head scarf that I am SO proud to say I wrapped myself. (Check out this post to see some wrap inspiration).
Obviously having a subject to photograph is key for a fashion shoot, so I asked my good, gorgeous gal pal, Sarah Hubbell, to be our muse for the day. Her beautiful brunette locks were perfect, as well as her fun personality! Not to mention she has awesome style, so I knew we would have fun putting outfits together with items from her own closet. Sarah is also a makeup master and did all of the makeup for the shoot.
My other friend Sarah Ingham let me steal her amazing sequin H&M dress and J.Crew sequined top. I used my own sequined belt and head scarf. We threw in pieces from Sarah Hubbell's wardrobe...and...voila! SEQUIN STYLE!
Michelle did the location hunting, and boy did she find a BEAUTY! We shot everything in a 70's style apartment in the middle of an orange grove with peacocks. NO LIE! haha! It was full of sunlight and blank walls - perfect for the airy vibe.
I hope you enjoy the photos! We had a blast creating them!
