Mitzi & Ernie


Do you remember a couple weeks ago before leaving for  New York I mentioned a shoot that I styled for my friend Mitzi? Well, the photos are finally back from photographer Ernest Rice.

The shoot was initially scheduled with a different photographer at a location of my choice, but when he couldn't make it to town until 10 PM the night before I left for New York, we decided to cancel and wait for better day. Shortly after I started putting everything away, Mitzi called to tell me about a random phone call she got from photographer/friend Ernie Rice who wanted to do a shoot with her the next morning.

Once again, I put my suitcase to the side and started styling clothes for a shoot! Ernie wanted to shoot the photos at an old abandoned school, and as expected, I was totally in love with the theme.  I really didn't know what to expect of the school, so I just loaded Mitzi up with my favorite liberty prints, school books, nerdy glasses, and pixie boots and sent her on her way – not without iPhone photos of all the looks, of course.

I think it ended up raining that morning, so they didn't get a whole lot of shots in, but we were satisfied with the few that they did get, especially since it was thrown together so last minute. Thanks to Mitzi, I have a few different local photographers requesting to work with me! Even if I don't get paid, styling shoots is still something I really, really enjoy doing!

These are awesome, and you have something really progessional to put in your portfolio, although I must say all of your photo shots are goregous. Its great that your making a name for yourself rack up as much experience as you can!

sooo lovely! i wish you were here to style filming shoots for darin. i love clothes, and like styling, but have nowhere near the natural talent that you have. i love how casual and graceful you make everything, and the little details you add like glasses or books, belts or bows...things i forget about. you deserve to get paid for this work!

and how rad that there is an abandoned school ready and waiting for photo shoots. jealous!

Wow, I love the outfits you styled! The little dresses remind me of Orla Kiely. I hope you style a lot more because it's always so fun to see how a person's style influences their styling. :)
