Monif C Showing Beauty At All Sizes

Monif C Showing Beauty At All Sizes

Monif C is not the first plus sized brand I've had the pleasure to work with;  it's not the first plus swimwear line I've worked with.  But what set this project apart for me personally was the   was the  palpable sexual energy.   On the one hand this should have been pretty obvious, I was shooting swimwear; barring robes, what you see here is what our lovely models (and  they  are lovely, classy, hardworking  women) ran around in for most of the day.   On the other hand  this shoot was  a huge wake up call.

Anje in Soho

For those of you out there who love athleasure, and look for opportunities to live life in the most comfortable fabrics out there I recommend checking out Anje.  Earlier this year Angela Brasington, the line's designer, and I connected and teamed up for a shoot showcasing some of the pieces from her newest Modal collection.  So one, chilly morning in early February we met up with the stunning Kate Michael in SOHO for a quick shoot.  Here are some of my favorite images from the project.

Ivy and Aster Bridal Lookbook

On Monday I shared a glimpse behind the scenes of my lookbook shoot for the Ivy and Aster Spring 2016 collection.  As promised here are some of my favorite images from this project.  Our model is the very sweet, and extremely talented Ren Kelly of APM.  Ananda Khan, agency represented hair and makeup artist with Big Leo and co-founder of Bloom Brides, rounded out our creative team.

But the work doesn't just end with the shoot once the images are retouched and the edits are delivered to the whole team, the work begins for the lovely ladies at Skirt PR, Ivy and Aster's Chicago based public relations firm..  Between the minds at Skirt and the in house team, and the years of brilliant design, branding, and promotion the buzz around this season's collection and the editor's responses were fantastic and included features on The Knot, Inside Weddings (twice), Weddings Unveiled, Style Me Pretty, Bridal Guide, and (my personal favorite) the Cut.

I hope you enjoy... till next time.
