Have you noticed our new look? Thanks to some amazing photography of the three of us by Jessica Oatman, we have a new Blog header and have freshened up our “About Us” page.
We had such a great time working with Jessica. She really listened to our ideas, and spent time talking about what we hoped for and looking at the inspiration shots we had gathered. OK, actually Terry was the Creative Director on our end, Christy and I just stood where we were told, and smiled through the cold!
Our goal was to get some fun shots that captured our personalities, that would feel fresh and would work within the space limitations of our blog pages.
Our inspiration for a large part of our shoot was the Mad Men era, in fact Christy and Terry both were able to wear vintage dresses (Christy from her mother and Terry from her Grandmother). These were the most fun shots to do.
We also took some dressed up shots as all three of us love any reason to get all ‘glammed up’.
Finally, we did a whole mess of outside casual shots and individual headshots.
And we did all this in a 2 hour window—including wardrobe/hair/jewelry changes. Unfortunately, the hotel where we stayed and held the shoot at was not very accommodating of extending our check-out time, and so we had to rush through much of the pictures to wrap up and race out of there by noon. Jessica was super-efficient and had some great suggestions for what have become some of our favorite pictures.
And, did we mention it was freezing with rain threatening that day? I don’t know how supermodels do it!
Thanks Jessica, we look forward to working with you again! You can read more about Jessica (her story is incredible) on her Blog here.
