Elisa in the Studio

I've recently taken a detour into the world of fashion photography, and I'm hooked. I've got a great professor, Allen Cooley, who keeps me on my toes and doesn't hold back on critiques. These images are my first "official" fashion shoot, with Elisa Freitas in front of the lens and Anya Mathis as MUA. I was lucky enough to have Stephen Archer as co-stylist, assistant, and videographer with me on this project as well.

All the looks are from H&M, in case you're looking to grab some florals for spring. Side note: going through a store picking out ALL the things is a really fun experience that I recommend. Not so fun: returning a huge purchase and getting dirty looks from the cashier and everyone behind you.

More fun: working with people this cool. Elisa is a fashion major here at SCAD and plays on our tennis team, and her hair looks this great as soon as she wakes up (I'm not jealous, promise). Anya is a fellow photographer who just happens to be an awesome make up artist, and I can't wait to show you the newest project we worked on together. And Stephen, one of my best friends and an incredibly talented photographer, is officially my favorite collaborator (you can expect a tutorial DVD one day with clip after clip of us yelling "YESSS" in excitement). I'm finally finding the photo groove that you only get from assembling a kick-ass team. I'll rant on that more in a later post. 

PS: I got this dress below for $10. TEN. DOLLARS. So of course I kept it. Thanks H&M. And thanks awesome people!
