Hey everyone! Do you miss my BTS blog posts? 🙂 A late backtrack, but I wanted to share some behind-the-scenes goodies from my shoot with the ever talented Daryna Barykina for our Elléments Magazine cover featuring the illustrious Yoanna House. You may recognize her as the winner of America’s Next Top Model Cycle 2, and she is still SMOKING in this editorial!
What I remember about this shoot is that it was incredibly HOT. It doesn’t matter how long I’ve lived in Florida, I will never get used to how hot it gets. Luckily for Yoanna, I put her in some summery suits and dresses, care of We Are Handsome, and For Love and Lemons. Topped off with unique boho-inspired accessories from my new favorite, Beachbu Jewelry!
Yours truly styling Miss Yoanna. I love this zipsuit in “The Victory” print from We Are Handsome (Zipsuit is sold out, but you can click here for a similar one-piece!). I have been a huge fan of WAH pieces since my discovery of them two years ago. They are high quality, meaning the print doesn’t fade after one wash like newer digital prints, and made with fabric that shapes and flatters you.
L to R: Yoanna, yours truly (front), Paul, Alex (Daryna’s husband and AWESOME assistant), Daryna, and Alexandria, our MUA! Silly and delirious smiles after shooting in the hot & sunny afternoon.
Paul shot video with us and he and Yoanna created this fun behind the scenes video. Click on this screenshot to go and check it out!
