Rutherford House Photo Shoot
Although plans to work with a local student seeking to compose a Look Book for items in my Etsy shop fell through last minute, yesterday, I did the photography and vintage styling for what turned out to be pretty darn amazing photo-shoot at the wonderful Rutherford House. Laurie of Retro Reporter bravely stepped in, not only to assist with wardrobe/outfit styling, but also to oversee the make-up and hairstyling, to chauffeur us to the shoot site, and generally to help oversee that everything behind the scenes was running smoothly all day. My beautiful friends, Charly, Nicole, and Chantel, served as my incredible models and each also contributed their vintage hair & makeup skills to help us produce the series of images I captured! I will reveal more of the photos from the shoot in the next post (though some are already up in my etsy listings). Today, I wanted to give you a sample of a couple of the images we did of the amazing Edwardian gown in my shop, as a kind of wistful marker of the anniversary of the sinking of the Titanic.
