It's not every day that one gets to work with a large group of people whom they love immensely inside and outside of the work setting but today was one of those lucky days. On an especially fine morning, I met up with an extra-talented group of artists to get some killer shots for Wilmington's Focus on the Coast magazine. Styled by Jess James and photographed by the lovely Leslie Koehn, I was bestowed with the assignment to work for both of my bosses on this shoot. Extremely nerve-wracking, but even more fun, I had a glorious time on Martha's farm for a full day of shooting.
As I mentioned earlier, working with both of my bosses was really such a treat. Jess and Leslie have worked together on countless occasions and are great friends and this perfect dynamic enabled a stress-free day of professionals having fun and making something great! Jess is killing it of course in her fur vest and headband, holding an amazing vintage hat from the collection of Leslie's grandmother's! ( By the way...I have the best looking bosses in town.)
The owner of this lovely home, is a well-known stage dresser in Wilmington's film industry. This was not surprise when stepping into this fairy tail cottage. Every detail was ornate with character, life, and stories. Impeccable taste down to every crackle of antique paint. It was truly a treat to see this abode.
We totally hit the broad-side of the barn on this one.
Me and the crew. Really....had so much fun with these guys. Peter, Madeline, Caroline, and I have all worked together before and our friendship definitely read in the pictures.
Special thanks to Michael Vinson and his fantastic men pieces from local men's store, Bloke! Bloke has all kinds of great stuff for men in the are so definitely take a look around. Peter is rocking the Bloke today and I'm a little jello.
Juliana's awesome blue pants....followed by Madeline's great fall. Bringing a sense of humor to a shoot can really do phenomenal things to the energy which directly translates to the pictures. I'm super excited to see how these turned out.
Stay tuned to see Jess and Leslie's amazing work come to life in next month's issue of Focus on the Coast!
Because we're obsessed.
