THE GARNET & BLACK MAGAZINE

I have had the opportunity to work with the amazing Garnet & Black Magazine team officially since the spring of 2017. I was originally brought on to aid in the style photoshoots and to do some article photography for the printed magazine. In the fall of 2017, I was the assistant stylist for the editorial shoot in the magazine and officially took on the assistant stylist position for the spring of 2018. We work with so many great boutiques in the Columbia, SC area, curating looks for both our online and print editorials.

WEB EDITORIALS

Check out my web editorial, "New Vintage" on the Garnet & Black Magazine website. 

This style shoot was one I was able to completely style from locations and model, to clothes and accessories. The inspiration was looking at trends for fall of 2017 that were inspired by past, now "vintage" finds. I was able to work with many local boutiques to pull the looks and create this style shoot for the Garnet and Black Magazine.

JAMIE GELLER BRAND PHOTOSHOOT

MOODBOARD.jpg

A LITTLE BACKGROUND: 
This photoshoot was done in Jacksonville Florida for Jamie Geller, an accomplished Israeli celebrity chef, food writer, and public figure. She is also the founder of "Joy of Kosher" and  previously was behind the camera helping produce major HBO shows like "Sopranos", "Entourage", and "Sex and the City". Today, she and her husband live in Israel with their six kids. She travels to the US frequently and is even a regular on the Today Show. 

For this shoot, we wanted to channel in the "Israel Chic" look with old world history, mixed with some new modern finishes that we thought embodied Jamie. In this shoot, I was able to work alongside with my good friend and amazing photographer, Joanne Nguyen, to capture her style and personality in photos for the upcoming launch of "Fresh Families".  


STYLING

I was the main stylist for this shoot, able to select the items that would be seen in the background of the videos and photos we took that weekend that are being used to promote Jamie Geller and her brand. I was also able to select the outfits that you see her wearing in each one of these photos as well as her accessories. The tabletop was also something I was able to design from the tablecloth to the plates. 


TABLETOP DESIGN: 

The tabletop was fun. I wanted to incorporate the Mediterranean blue into the photos by having it be in the table cloth and vases in the center. Mixing in some metallics with the serving pieces and plates added the modern touches without overpowering the natural wood chargers and stone details. I really envisioned having these clear plates to show off the wooden chargers that in a way anchored the whole place setting and kept the modern, crisp feel. Some of the darker serving plates really showcased the bright and colorful foods in the shoot.

IN THE STUDIO KITCHEN:

Working in the studio kitchen was so nice. We were able to adjust lighting and showcase colors well in the very clean, neutral kitchen set. Her outfits for these photos, we wanted to have a range of her go-to comfortable tops like this blue one that also matched our overall scheme with the Mediterranean blue.

LIFESTYLE AND HOME: 

The home that was selected for the photos was bright and had lots of natural light and space. For these photos, we wanted to show the family and friends that inspire her brand and Fresh Families. I selected these great jackets for Jamie to wear at this location because they really showed her fun and stylish personality while still abiding to the dressing qualifications of her Orthodox Jewish religion. 

STYLED SHOOT : BEX

This shoot all started when Bex and I decided to run through Anthropologie in downtown Greenville. We were sorting through the store, not really looking for anything in particular, but when I came across this jumpsuit in the sale section I made Bex try it on. Obviously it looked like it was made for her and it lead us to do this styled shoot!  

The fabric is so light and soft, it's perfect for the summer. The cropped pant makes it easy to pair with wedges, platforms, or tied up sandals. Bex kills the tied neck scarfs so we obviously chose that as her main accessory. She paired it with her personal, gold chocker and ring. The denim jacket makes it easy to turn her daytime outfit into a fun dinner outfit and can push this look even into fall.
