Guys … I have an incredible team again this year! I’m so impressed by every single one of these amazing people – and lucky enough to have known quite a few of them since they were little kiddos 🙂 . This is the year my own twins are graduating (2018) and I’ve got both of them on the model team as well!
For those of you unfamiliar with what exactly my model team IS, they represent my studio as the new faces of the Class of 2018 – online and in various other fun shoots that we will have throughout the year. Why start so early? Yes, these guys are still technically High School Juniors – but my calendar fills up super fast, so I sign up my model team in January of their Junior year – to ensure I have enough time to spend with them! Summer is approaching quickly, so my model team has their senior session dates secured – and they also earn perks for referring friends to shoot with me. We have a lot of fun together throughout the year .. I’m currently shooting my 2017 #rbmodels free family sessions and will shoot their free BFF sessions in May! It’s nonstop around here 😉
We all met in March for our first shoot with the 2018 #rbmodel team. We shot all day from 9am-5pm and it was SO much fun! The Tranquility girls hosted the shoot at their salon & provided killer hairstyles – and Jami and Krista provided beautiful makeup (see full credits at the end of this post)
First, let me say that this shoot is VERY different from my “norm”. I have been obsessed with the fashion runways lately, specifically Robert Cavalli’s Spring line … the color/patterns/boho vibe … I just LOVE. I used that as sort of an inspiration .. along with the Pantone color of the year – Greenery. I am always trying to push myself creatively …. so I also decided to style this entire session myself. I wanted lots and lots of color and I worked with Jami to come up with just the right makeup look as well to complement the clothing, etc. We were going for a 20’s meets 70’s vibe … a tad vintage and romantic with lots of color and prints. The processing of the images is also a tad outside of my normal edit – but I feel this look compliments the vibe best.
All the clothing pieces I found helped bring this look to life as well – most everything they wore was purchased and styled by me; with some vintage pieces I have thrown in as well….I am in love with the hand-beaded kimonos and tops – and yes, they are for sale 🙂
I will be starting a small online store soon with the pieces I love, so stay tuned for that.
the 2018 #rbmodel team!
We also partnered with a killer new brand called For Better Not Worse – I LOVE this brand and their message – they donate a bag of groceries to a needy child in LA for every t-shirt that is purchased! And the shirts are SO cute and SO soft and comfy 🙂 . Y’all should go check them out –> https://www.fbnw.us/
Aren’t they awesome? They’ll get their own iphone app of all the images I shot of them today as well – so you’ll probably see them sharing some online later this evening!
Class of 2018 SENIORS
It’s officially TIME to schedule your senior sessions with me …. June is full, but I have a few spots open for July and August; September is almost sold out and October is pretty booked too. Get in touch ASAP if you want to reserve a date! I have a special offer for anyone who reserves their session BEFORE May 1st!
