Photo Shoot at the Wren's Nest: Take 1



So you guys have heard us babble about this photo shoot we styled this past weekend. Well we've got some of the photos back to show you how it went down. We'll post more photos tonight!

Some of you were asking about the details of the shoot. Cath and I were approached by photographer Jamie Hopper to style a fashion shoot for her portfolio. Kind of a dream come true for ladies like us (into fashion and design- oh and working with other creative peeps!). Jamie was dreamy to work with and got in touch with the make-up artist Amy Weissenberg (check out her site here) and the lovely model Haley (I'm completely blanking on her agency at the moment). I then contacted some local boutiques to borrow some lovely things, organized props (including cupcakes from the Cookie Studio- nom nom nom), and got in touch with The Wren's Nest for location (you should check out their blog here- it's a hoot).

We had no budget, so we had to be creative (i.e. rely on the generosity of others). Jamie was lovely to work with because she gave us complete reign over the location and entire "look" of the project.

Can't wait to show you more photos! Stay tuned...

So fab! Love the natural surroundings for the shoot.

Speaking of design, let me know if you know if any account management positions open at advertising/marketing/communications agencies. I was laid off last week... boo!
