Here's a few 'before' shots of my apt that I've taken on my own...I just know the 'after' ones are going to blow my mind!
So when Nicole first got to my apartment, she took her shoes off right away so she could get comfortable, a steady and balanced shot and to really get in the zone- get on the ground if need be, brace herself against a wall for the perfect angle, etc. Her shoes, by the way, were adorable...menswear-esque suede MacAlister boots. She kicked them off right in front of the the coat rack that is next to our entryway table.
Her shoes looked like these (minus the pigeon, I just thought this painting was great ;)...
She then took her scarf off and draped it over the coat rack. It made for the perfect first staged photo-op and I'm really excited to see how that one turned out!
Here's one photo I shot of the entryway previously...
Nicole really gets to know her client. She gets a feel for your sense of style and who you are, what your trying to convey and does her darnedest to portray exactly that in her work. We vibed so incredibly well!
The photos I'm dying to see most are of a little vignette she and I staged. She loved the mismatched dining chairs I have and thought it would be fun to feature them in a funny juxtaposed 'Alice in Wonderland' kind of floaty scene if you can visualize in your head ;).
And we did just that...incorporating a vintage door knob shelf, some frames, rope, a spool of twine and even added some tiny flower arrangements I had done.
In a nutshell, IT IS ME! It's exactly my style, the materials I flock towards most, the colors, textures, vintage pieces, everything! It quite possibly may be my new single image for my business cards and blog now. I am so stoked. It was the greatest experience!
In the meantime, I want to share Nicole's work so you can see for yourself how talented she is. Check out her website here: Bond White Photography. She specializes in fashion, landscapes and portraits but has experience with engagement & weddings too. I could not recommend her more!
I should be getting the photos towards the end of this week or early next and am ecstatic to share. I'm really hoping that having these will not only strengthen my portfolio but give me an even better chance of getting on the Nate Show too :). Fingers crossed again everyone!
