The Nitty Gritty On: What goes on during a typical photo shoot?

What goes on during a typical photo shoot? How long does it take to get the models ready, how many hours a day and how often do you guys do photo shoots? Love your stuff! Sooooo cute!!
-Tina Goodman

Hmmmm … what goes on? Hours of LAUGHING! Literally. We have such a blast doing photo shoots because it’s really hard for us to be serious. It doesn’t take too long to get the models ready since they’ve been modeling for us for a year now. They always come in full hair/makeup to the shoot. We literally just change their clothes/jewelry a million times. We’ve gotten so brave that we will have them changing on the street corner, for REAL! You’d be surprised how creative you can get to change clothes so you don’t have to walk all the way back to the office to change clothes. I’m sure you’ve seen a few of the pictures of Heather dragging a rack of clothes, a big sweater in hand and jewelry hanging off of every arm! The shoot can take anywhere from 1-3 hours and we do it 2-3 times a week, it just depends on the amount of new arrivals/samples we have coming in for the week. Photo shoot days are my favorite! I love seeing it all come together from some random style samples and fabrics to a pulled together look. It’s a pretty incredible feeling!
