STYLED EDITORIAL IN THE FOOTHILLS
There is a dream team thing going on here with these styled editorial sessions. The main and most important ingredient is hands down Stella + Parker Revival who provide each styling element, each garment piece, all the vehicles and in most cases the fun locations too! They are notorious for wrangling in their adored customers to model their garment lines just as they did in this session with Josh the cutest cutie of all cuties who pretty much killed his very first session in front of the camera. Monica is the radiant beauty opposite Josh who always impresses and normally steals the show. She is a regular here at PGP and very much loved by us all. Check out her style blog Monica Miyagi . This session started out as an impromptu thing to be squeezed in before the sunrise and our first coffee fix but when I arrived and saw what Deb and Deanna (the sister duo) at SPR had all laid out I gladly rolled up my sleeves and dove head first into their style magic knowing this wasn’t going to be the quick session we had earlier discussed (grin). Deb had hand drawn a sketch of each location/setup with a detailed list of every garment item for each model. HAND DRAWN! They neatly packed each outfit in brown paper sacks and had the bed of her truck full of these bags and props! We shot in each spot just as she wanted but my FAVORITE part was actually mimicking each drawing and posing the models just as her sketch showed for a fun nod to her hard work. I’ve included the sketches with the coordinating photos to show you the brilliance that is Deb! There is no match for her outstanding creativity… maybe except her big heart!
