From the moment I heard about this shoot through my mentor and fellow photographer, Corey Villicana, I was so excited to get involved. My imagination was running wild thinking about what fun things we could do. What would the best day ever in spring look like? I grew up in the Northeast, so spring to me was always basically half winter and half coming out of my house for the first time, in what seemed like decades, to be greeted by a warm sun and tulips bursting through melting snow. However, when I think of spring I can't help but picture fresh flowers, beautiful sundresses, and friends getting together to hang out. There's just something about warmth and sunshine that makes people want to see each other more, ya know?
We got started brainstorming and right away a group of us dove into creating old school inspiration boards for the Liv3 Spring 2016 Lookbook. That's right, I'm talking glue, scissors, and lots of pretty magazines and catalogs. When the shoot came together it was like magic. Imagine the best day you've ever had with the coolest friends you know just hanging out in the woods and you all look incredible. It was that good! There were whimsical flowers, star "graffiti", dreamy macrame wall hangings and my favorite part - we had some fun with smoke grenades which I had been wanting to play with for so long! Now, I've had my fair share of extremely fun group outings with my friends, but this shoot was definitely one for the books as well. It was truly, (fabulously) authentic. Needless to say, it was an amazing day of being able to photograph amazing people in amazing clothes, accessories, and products.
Thank you Liv3 for this beautiful day and collaboration.
