Among the ideas that I started developing in San Antonio for my personal photography projects was a fashion shoot centered around the amazing things that can be found in consignment stores. This was also the first project of mine to incorporate a full shoot video.
All I needed now was my crew. I happen to know a very artistically talented young woman who has an uncanny eye for fashion. When I approached her about the idea, she was all in. She was told simply to create six outfits that fit the theme, “Sexy, Fun, Fabulous” and had complete freedom to choose as she saw fit. For the models I drew upon two gorgeous prior clients, JoAnna and Allison. While they are amateur models, my makeup artist is a full time pro and Mac specialist, Yoshiko. (Just a quick side note to my photographer brethren – if you need a MUA who knows what they’re doing, I fully recommend Yoshiko.) The finishing touch was jewelry, much of it hand-made, provided by Madison.
On Saturday, we met to do some filming at the consignment store used for most of the wardrobe, “Roundabout Consignments“, and to do a wardrobe check. Then it was on to the real action on Sunday.
First the video, then the finished project images. To my incredibly hard working team, AMAZINGLY done!
