Behind the scenes - A photo shoot


Keira gets her hair & shades adjusted.

Although I don't have much time after coming home from a full day at work, I am sometimes asked to design for a project that gets my creative juices excited and flowing. Last December, an old friend asked me to help her design her branding for her new venture and it was too fun to pass up. This is a bit of a teaser post as the official launch will happen May 26th with a fashion show flourish! And as such, I will definitely have a proper introduction post about this fantastic venture of Christina's soon...

In the meantime, I'd like to share some behind the scenes photos of the fashion shoot I art directed with the incredible photographer, Sandrine Castellan. Her work has been published in publications such as Babiekins and Mag Doolittle. It was such a terrific and fun photo shoot with Sandrine and my friend Christina. The little models were a dream to work with! And boy, were they pampered. They got the full makeup treatment with gentle Geneviève (isn't she gorgeous? and she deftly and expertly made up each girl's makeup and hair without over-doing it). It was a full day's work and the girls handled themselves professionally and with aplomb. I think the end results speak for themselves. Don't take my word for it, see the look book for yourselves here! Now.. check it out!
