Back in late Summer I had the chance to work w/ an amazing team on the Pink Martini Spring/Summer 2014 lookbook! I knew the day of the shoot we created some really gorgeous pics but I had no idea how awesome they would turn out! I've literally been waiting months to be able to show some of these pics to you so I'm so glad I finally get the chance to do so.
This may be surprising to some...I know it is to me when I look at the pics but these were actually shot in Hamilton, ON...I love the bohemian, traveler vibe we were able to get w/ this shoot and although my knowledge of Hamilton before this shoot was limited I was very surprised to see just how well it worked for the theme. Plus the people and stores in the city were so inviting and helpful w/ letting us shoot...coffee shops, clothing stores, fruit markets...none of them had a problem w/ us stopping in and taking some pics...yeah that definitely would not be happening in Toronto lol!
As anyone can tell from the pics the shooting conditions were perfect - warm & sunny but not too hot. Plus I have to say I've worked on a lot of lookbooks and the clothes in this collection were outstanding! They looked great in person and fit even better! I think there was one dress that had to be clipped...literally that's it! That's almost unheard of for any sort of lookbook or catalog shoot!
The clothes are available online at numerous stores including some of my personal fave - Modcloth and Ruche plus numerous stores around Canada and USA.
As you can see from the makeup and hair I was going for a very soft and pretty look. Not trying to hard - just soft neutrals on the eyes, flushed/glowy cheek and a soft glossed lip. For the hair I wanted loose curls...again I wanted it all to look effortless and natural to go w/ the "traveler theme" of the shoot. Really hope I get to work w/ everyone again on another project!
Special thanks goes out to the entire team on this shoot:
Photographer - Eleanor Dobbins
Model - Kelleth Cuthbert (Sutherland)
Creative Director - Salvina Lauricella
I know it's a lot of pics (and this isn't even all of them...I just couldn't decide on my favs)
No idea how I'll pick just a couple for my site lol!
