Our last photo shoot

If you read my New Year's post you know that it poured down rain during our last photo shoot. We had planned to shoot outside near the docks in Sausalito. Everything was in motion so we couldn't cancel.  Yvette and I were worried that we would not be able to get enough interesting backgrounds since we pretty much just had our photographer's studio and his building to choose from for settings.  Thanks to some outside-the-box thinking, we made it work.

Our photographer got this water buffalo at a garage sale and had it in his studio. We had Tori (our model) stand on a couch and from there we just improvised. This turned out to be one of my favorite shots. She is wearing the Jeffrey Campbell Prance:

This one was in the dressing room at our photographer's studio. It had been off limits to photography until that day. This is the Dolce Vita Joanna.

We stepped outside during the rain for a shot on the porch and found this bench. It looks like she could be in Paris. This is the Dolce Vita Brenna.

We really got stuck and started wandering the halls of the studio and found this couch. She is wearing the Jeffrey Campbell Tardy in Tartan.

We tried to go outside when it stopped raining and got this shot off before it started up again. It is the Matiko Sina. I love the reflection of the shoe in the puddle.

We are rounding up samples, looking at models, styling outfits and scouting locations for our Spring look book now. Fingers crosses we get a beautiful San Francisco sunny day...
