Los Angeles was hot over the summer.
It was no joke. We don’t have air conditioning in our small little bungalow, so I would sit downstairs with three fans blowing on me while I worked on this collection. When it finally came to be time to shoot these shirts, all I could do was hope that we’d get a short break in the heat wave for our shoot to happen.
Thankfully it worked out! Ashley and Celina came over on a Saturday morning, smiling and beautiful. The air was heavy with moisture, but it was just cool enough that we felt ok going to a nearby park to take photos.
Celina and Ashley, who hadn’t met before, got along famously, and it felt so good to see their chemistry with one another while the trees seemed to be in a state of relaxed breath. I felt like we were locked in a small, warm cocoon of connection as we walked on cobbled paths and gently moved branches out of our way– such a rarity in Los Angeles that I feel it has to be noted!
Big thank yous to Celina and Ashley for modeling. You two were an absolute pleasure! xo
