Happy Mothers Day!

Reposting this video that Todd Wright shot for ROAN in Carytown last year.  This is the first video Todd and I worked on together and it’s still one of my favorites. Featuring MW talent Catherine M and her daughter ,  I thought it was very fitting for Mother’s Day.  Take a look and then go call your mom or a special woman in your life,  and tell her you love her!



Amy Lemons is Beautiful In Charlottesville

Last week I had the pleasure of joining Amy Lemons and Todd Wright for a quick photo shoot in Charlottesville at the lovely Pippin Hill Vineyard.  After a slight, unintended, detour down a very long country road we mistakenly took, we finally found the Vineyard where Amy was having her hair and makeup done by Lora Kelley.  The purpose of the shoot was to get some good clean lifestyle and catalog images for Amy’s book, so we scouted the grounds and found some great, natural backdrops.

We had a great time shooting , it’s really effortless with a pro like Amy, and Todd captured the exact feeling we needed for her book.  Check out the results of a very production afternoon below.

Wardrobe provided by our friends at Bittersweet. Jewelry by Bittersweet and Karyn Shonk Designs.

And if you ever have the chance to visit Pippin Hill for a wine tasting,  go!  Its heaven out there and they have a great selection of Virginia wines and some tasty small plates.

Great day all around!

VCU Fashion Goes RAW

Last night was standing room only at  the VCU Fashion Department’s annual juried show.  Held at the VMFA in the gorgeous Cochrane Atrium, the show, titled RAW, was filled with beautifully crafted pieces that were artful, striking, and inspiring.  The design students created clothes for different segments, such as  hip-hop, day dresses, cocktail, resort and more.  The models, many of them from MW and many VCU students, were all spectacular on the runway.  Innovation and creativity ruled the evening, with  students using sustainable fabrics and showing off superb tailoring. VCU Fashion pulled off a wonderful show with New York quality production design and great music.  Congratulations to all the design students who showed, the fashion merchandising students who pulled it together and the Faculty of VCU Fashion on their  huge success.

Take a peek  at some snapshots I grabbed, from backstage to finale!  Enjoy!
