+ Photographer / Stylist: Ashley Garner
+ Art Direction: Melanie Patterson (Me!)
So back in April, I got in touch with Ashley (of Elegant Idiosyncrasy) about collaborating on a photo/illustration story. After months of planning (and rescheduling, haha) we finally got together to do the shoot! We initially intended to go for “70s with an edge” but it transformed into “70s Romanticism”, and I’m totally in love with it. For the model, we booked a friend of mine from elementary school, Alex Laurie. I was in love with her look for this and she totally helped make the photos into magic.
Anyway, here are some behind these scenes photos from the shoot about a week and a half ago. I’m excited to get the final edits from Ashley so I can get started on my illustrations! I totally took awake some of the mysteriousness of the location in how I’ve edited the photos, but that’s because you’re just gonna have to see what Ashley comes up with ;)
Look forward to the teaser video in the coming weeks!
