Behind the scenes // Girls Life // Dec/Jan

This month my team and I set out again with Girls Life to produce a really awesome holiday shoot.  Our theme this year was holiday party.  Two girls, setting up and decorating for their friends.  We found an amazing location, an old warehouse converted into living space in Baltimore.  This house was full of all sorts of props, cool furniture and an old car!  We suffered from no shortage of inspiration.  In addition to the location we had boxes and boxes of glitter and tinsel to play with.  We can’t wait to share the results with you this holiday!  In the meantime, enjoy these behind the scene photos taken by Arianna Valle.

Behind the scenes // Girls Life Sept/Oct 2012 issue

This week we had the opportunity to do the fall issue shoot for Girls Life.  This shoot marks a year since I first started shooting some of their editorials!  Last year we did an 8 or 9 page spread in various locations around one of Baltimore’s neighborhoods.  This year we wanted the shoot to have a fall, back to school sort of feel.  So we chose Patterson High School.  This school was huge!  With really interesting colors and features.  Built in 1956, it had that slightly retro vibe we really wanted.  New schools look like shopping malls if you ask me.

Of course the weather would be insane.  Over 100 degrees in a school where few rooms have AC.  We call it the “sweating in sweaters” issue for a reason!  The models did well though and we all dressed lightly for the occasion and drank plenty of water!  It was needed man!  But we pushed through and managed to have a ton of fun and got beautiful images that I am really proud of!  Can’t wait to share the tearsheets!  In the meantime Arianna Valle took these behind the scenes images.  Enjoy!
