Nine West Behind The Scenes Diary

posted by on 2013.11.30, under Collaborations


The past few months have been a complete whirlwind, as i’ve been traveling back and forth from New York every other week. As i’ll be en route to the east coast at the end of this week, I wanted to share a few behind the scenes photos from my Nine West shoot. We shot this campaign over the Summer, hence the long hair,  but i’m now finally able to reveal with you what went on behind the scenes. More often than not you only get to see  the “glamorous” results of the shoot, but rarely get to see what goes on behind the production /creative process.

This is the first project where I was  challenged to  shoot the video & photos simultaneously at the same time.  There were a lot of moving parts, and the day would have been impossible without the incredible  Nine West & team , and of course everyone from the hair & makeup artists, photographers, videographers, directors, etc.


Tue, 11 AM

The day before the shoot! Arrived at my fitting a few minutes early, taking some time to catch up on emails & of course Instagram!

Arrived on set and went straight to the breakfast table!


WED, 7 am

Moved on to the second location to shoot the second episode- The Vintage Boot.



Tomboy chic with 2 trends I love- The Beannie & Flannel waist wrap.




The whole team hard at work in midst of a heatwave! Loved how THIS shoot came out!!
