I have so much to tell you about today! This past Tuesday I had the opportunity to take part in a photo shoot courtesy of Don Porter photography. It was such an amazing experience! Don was great, especially considering that he had much of his equipment stolen a few days earlier and had to go buy equipment specifically for this shoot. He was a true professional.
The shoot was to showcase pieces from designer, Minh Le's collection. I got to experience the creative styling process first hand -and even help out with it a little bit! I worked with Minh Le and our wardrobe stylist, Zach, going through her garments -she brought 25 pieces!- and styling the models. They were both so kind and pleasant to be around. I felt like I was working with friends as opposed to people who had just met.
As for the pieces themselves, they were stunning! Minh incorporates a lot of rich colors; golden tones, deep greens, blacks, maroons, and even some coral tones as well. She also uses many different textures and silhouettes. They were absolutely stunning!
I was able to get some behind the scenes shots of the actual shoot. The models looked gorgeous and they were all very nice. I had a great time talking with them as well. There was so much creative energy around that day, it was inspiring!
This shoot is going to be featured in an upcoming issue of the magazine, Charlotte Girl. I'll be sure to share it with you when it comes out!
Thanks so much for reading and a special thanks to Don Porter for the opportunity to be a part of the shoot!
Have a great weekend!
