Danielle almost exclusively shoots on film, so, understandably, things can occasionally go wrong with the images and developing process, which was the case with the outdoor shots from this shoot. But that’s quite alright, I’m quite smitten with how these shots turned out, and I hope you are too.

Styling / Behind the scenes

DSC_3702Last weekend I styled a shoot for Danielle, with makeup and hair by Lisa and modelled by little doll face, Charlotte. In between styling and helping Danielle with some things, I managed to snap a few behind the scenes photos, as I usually try to do when I am styling a shoot, so that I can share it with you!

Working with Danielle is always such a pleasure. I feel like we have the same sort of mind-set when it comes to the process of shooting and I love that she gives me a lot of creative freedom when styling. It’s nice to find someone you feel at ease with and your vision is much the same, cause goodness knows creatives can butt heads when they feel the integrity of their work is being compromised. Anyways, here is just a few snaps from my DSLR/iPhone, and you can be sure I’ll share the final images with you when Danielle releases them.DSC_3676DSC_3683DSC_3693Processed with VSCOcam with g3 presetProcessed with VSCOcam with n3 presetDSC_3700

The Wind Rises

landingzone copyI’m so excited to be able to share with you the final images from our editorial published in the most recent issue of Bricks Magazine. Getting to work with Audrey was such a dream and she was the perfect model for this concept piece. I can’t get over how beautiful she looks (always) and what an amazing job Gerald and the whole team did on this one. If you’re interested in getting a copy of the magazine you can find it here.

The Anderson Sisters

8I’m finally able to share with you the first shoot I styled (and modelled) with Gerald that was just published in the latest issue of Elegant Magazine. I’m quite excited about this, because it’s an actual print magazine, which means I can get my hands on a copy (as can you!!!). The pain about styling and modeling in shoots that are mean’t for publications is that you’ve got to wait and wait (and wait) sometimes until they have been released by the magazine. So while I had seen these images months ago, I had to wait to share them with you all (save for the few teasers on my instagram). But here we are! I’d just like to say, there is something so fun about being surrounded by gingers all day! To be honest, I don’t really know many gingers, at least not ones I see on the regular (we are very rare and we are mostly men…Girl, Interrupted anyone?!) I felt an immediate connection to these gals. A gingerly bond, if you will.

Larkspur Summer 2014

photo (13)And it’s finally here, Larkspur Summer 2014 lookbook! I know, I know, summer is basically well and over now…almost. What took me so long? Well a ton of things really. But the nice thing about running a vintage shop is you can pretty well do whatever you damn like. There are no rules in my opinion (right?!). So here we are. I hope you enjoy! All items in the lookbook will be available in the shop by the end of the week. So keep a lookout (although I’m sure i’ll let you know).
