free people july catalog: behind the scenes
we just wrapped up shooting our july catalog in austin, texas. truth be told, austin is one of my new favorite cities! we had an amazing experience and a lot of fun on this shoot...
first things first, we arrived at the beautiful historic house we all shared and got settled in.
the first day of shooting can be a bit hectic and really exciting at the same time. i began getting the clothes ready in our big dressing room. hair and make up got started while others help get the sets ready.
ashley smith poses in her rollers.
finally shooting begins with photographer alexandra valenti and fp videographer carrie yotter.
the day is long. models take snack breaks on clementines.
days two and three are shot at alexandra's favorite austin spots where she shoots vintage sellers, sisters of the black moon.
on our shoots we are lucky enough to get occasional hair cuts by the hair stylists we take along. amazing, new york based stylist, dennis, works his magic on my crazy hair.
check out those braids!
when shooting is finished we stop for tex mex and can't help but notice all of the music lyrics and posters austin has lingering throughout.
what an amazing city!
i may post some silly photos and our last night out, but for now i say good night. hope you enjoyed!
