lookbook shoot behind the scenes

Posted on April 15, 2016 by Courtney Weil | 0 comments

As evening light poured into a rustic Goat Farm studio one April night, I was fortunate enough to help create our latest lookbook with a joyful team, captured by LeggyBird. We giggled nearly the entire team, slinging corny jokes left and right, making the evening feel more like hanging out with friends than work. I loved the intimate atmosphere of this studio (lent to us for the evening by Vic Bonvicini Photography), as it created an environment where the entire team was hands on throughout the shoot.
I dipped by feet into styling again, using two Maelu kimonos (I snagged the Maelu Arizona Kimono for myself right before the shoot because treat-yo-self is the real deal, and the details and texture on this fabric are absolutely gorgeous). I also recently fell in love with another handmade clothing line based in Portland, Make It Good, and used their Marine Sails Tank Dress, which created beautiful color and pattern, without being overpowering. I love wearing jewelry with prints that do not overwhelm and hide the jewelry, and Make It Good's prints fit the bill every time. Overall, this was definitely one of my favorite shoots to work on, and was the perfect way to begin a busy Spring season. Enjoy a few behind the scenes shots of Becca Bussert, our talented makeup artist, and Jerelyn, our stunning model.
