Indian Summer

Boston's enjoying some unseasonably warm weather this late into November, so it's rather fitting that this Indian summer coincides with our fashion editorial story photographed at the Wellesley greenhouses.

This shoot was a little different, in the sense that whatever was shot on location had to be imagined with the illustrations of Holly Nichols, which would be created later in the production.

So, it was especially interesting to see what the end result would be! I will share before and afters, soon, but take a look at some of the behind the scenes and in the meantime, I hope you will enjoy this fashion story.

shot on location at Wellesley College Botanic Gardens, Massachusetts

Rachel is an urban Cinderella of sorts, barefoot in the gardens, dirt under her nails, planting and nurturing the plants and flowers as her day begins. The greenhouses are her world.
It's a magical place, the greenhouse.
Where the temperature rises as the clock strikes twelve and the exotic plants and leafy greens bask in all their glory.. does our muse....

Brass Clothing: The Shirt Dress

I recently had the pleasure of working with a great team of creatives in Boston on a shoot at the Wellesley Greenhouses. This location has to be one of my favorites!

What made the shoot even more special was having Jay from Brass Clothing there filming me at work in their shirt dress, something I wear on shoots all the time, because:

A) it's black (and everyone knows photographer's love wearing black)

B) it has POCKETS (a necessity for all things camera related: lens caps, batteries)

C) it looks GOOD!

Take a look at the Brass video above, and here are some more behind the scenes of the day...
