What is the best thing about a team of 8 creative, incredibly fun and highly motivated women? EVERYTHING. During a shoot for the May issue of Merrimack Valley Magazine, I had the privilege and honor of working with these 7 women who all bring something different to the table, and what we created was not only one of the most fun sets to be a part of, but the photos we produced are among my favorites of 2014.
It’s easy for moms to get caught in a sweatshirt and yoga pant, no makeup, air-dried hair in a ponytail rut. I’m not a mom, and it’s easy for me to get caught in that rut!
And this is how Susan’s article came about. Three moms from the Mother Connection were selected for the “Mom’s Makeover” article, not just to make them over for a few hours, but to spruce up their everyday style for work, and home. [See before and after]
Susan Kanoff, Style Editor for the magazine found us a great location at Lord and Taylor, and did what she does best- hand selected outfits that not only looked fantastic on these women, but gave them a glowing confidence that made me want to photograph them all day. Theresa Gallagher and Vanessa Minervini gave these women the perfect complimentary hair and makeup so the women didn’t look “super made over”, just naturally beautiful. Yolanda, graphic designer for MVM helped create a relaxed and inspired atmosphere on set and we couldn’t have brought everything together without every one of these ladies.
I think I can actually hear Beyonce’s “Run The World (Girls)” playing somewhere in the background right now.
