From the Eyes of the Intern: First Photo Shoot Complete!

Hello All!

My first photo shoot has officially been completed. The day finally arrived and everything went very smoothly. After weeks of planning, I met all the ladies involved in helping this shoot come together at the office and the preparation began right away. As I was busy steaming all the clothing, make-up and hair stylist Rachelle Gleason quickly went to work on model Taryn Grover. With my concept board close by, we quickly brought my inspiration pictures to life.

The amazing and talented photographer Lauren Guy from Lauren Guy Photography arrived and we left on schedule to head to our location to start shooting. With all three outfit changes, along with changing the hair and make-up for each look we were able to just catch all the sun remaining for the day. The outfits came together so perfectly and I was so pleased with the looks, special thanks to Francescas Collections in Highland Village for allowing me to pull from their store.

For my first photo shoot, I was very lucky to have such a fun and easy going crew to work with. I will admit it was not an easy day to plan...but I am so thrilled to say that I have styled and organized my first photo shoot, and it was a blast! The pictures turned out so gorgeous and I am beyond ecstatic with the final results.

From the Eyes of the Intern: Planning My First Photo Shoot

Hello Again!
I have not posted in a while, as I have been very busy planning a big project. I received the news that I would be planning and styling my first photo shoot the first day of my internship. I was beyond excited since styling the wardrobe for a photo shoot is exactly what I want to do as my career. As time got closer I kept thinking of ideas for the shoot. I would decide on a theme one day and wake up the next morning with a totally different idea in my head. I would drive by a new location, see a new dress in the store window, or even watch a movie... all of which inspired me to create a new theme. Finally, I decided on a theme and created my concept board which included all the inspiring pictures and ideas I wanted to create for the photo shoot. This included ideas of how I wanted hair, make-up, wardrobe, accessories and location. From there, I was to find the photographer, model and hair/make-up artist that was going to help me bring my shoot to life.
That was the easy part...after browsing half a dozen antique stores and boutiques, I was still looking for the "perfect" items to use in the shoot. I kept looking and eventually found exactly what I was looking for. Now, where is this shoot going to take place? It was after an hour of driving around location scouting that I realized that the location picture I had selected was not going to just appear right in front of my eyes. At the beginning of this project I had no idea how much effort, time and organizing went into planning a photo shoot. With everyone's busy schedules it became stressful organizing a meeting date and time that would work for everyone involved in the shoot. It is not as easy as it looks people!

With only a few days leading up to the photo shoot I am pleased to say that I sent out the final details to everyone involved and picked up the perfect clothes and accessories from Francesca's Collections in Highland Village. With all of the clothes steamed and jewelry layed out we are patiently waiting (and relaxing) until Sunday, when the shoot will take place. Be sure to stay tuned until next week to see the final pictures!

Speak Soon,

Our tip this week would like to remind you that relaxation is an essential element to maintaining your beauty. So, when there is a holiday, take off from work and relax, play, and enjoy life because life is too short.
