When Mary Claire Photography contacted me about doing a shoot, I knew she would be perfect for my first styled shoot. I reeled my darling Amber of Amber Reverie in and boom bam... we were bound for perfection.
I oversaw the styling of the models. For hair and makeup, I knew that I wanted messy/frizzy hair with a dark/glam look which Kaity and Hailee executed beautifully. They both blew me away. Working with people for the first time is always a gamble, but they far exceeded my expectations.
For wardrobe, I decided to go with floor-length skirts and dresses and incorporated beaded accents and crystal jewelry with each look. My dear mother happened to be in town for the week and together, she helped me bring my vision of a grey/blue tulle skirt to life. I love the way it turned out and it was actually way easier to make than I imagined!
Amber is a magician with florals and is one of the most creative individuals I've ever encountered. I truly appreciate the thought and effort she puts into her work and is a constant joy to work with. (Spoiler: A little tutorial is coming 'atcha from us soon!) Mary Claire is a master at her craft. She really knows her way around a camera and puts you at ease so those naturally beautiful shots can be captured. Thank you ladies for making my first concept shoot a dream come true! xoxo
