RuxChic, the one stop accessories shop!
November 5, 2012 was relatively the first time I did an outdoor photo shoot since I got here in the US. I wouldn’t consider the first, first ever outdoor photo shoot because I was the model and it was for my profile! Let me know if you want me to talk about that one though. I have a few BTS photos from it and official photos are already available. Today I will talk about RuxChic and the accessories used on a photo shoot.
Anyway, this shoot was partly for mine and the photographer’s (our) portfolio as well as package booklets for clients and partly for RuxChic because the model was wearing accessories from the web store. I did the hair and makeup as well as styling which was very liberating. I love the feeling of being able to contribute so much to the concept of the shoot and visualize how it should appear to the viewer. I have the photographer, the amazing Millie Sarinas of The Art of light Photography and Bella Life/Bella Baby to thank for it. She always provides a very comfortable environment for the shoot and she’s encouraging to the model which makes her so easy to work with. Please check out the respective links for reference and like my Facebook page for updates about what I’ve been up to.
The theme of this shoot, from the title itself, is Boho Chic. We wanted something that would display the accessories in a stylish, very carefree way, but also classy and sophisticated. We also wanted to have very bold lashes and lips, but deviate from the main stream, trendy feel of Fall or Autumn Photo shoots this year where the model has dark features with dark lips. We basically mixed the bright, fun, cheerful feel of Spring and Summer and incorporated it with Fall by using Orange, Brown, and Yellow palettes.
