I feel like I could scream from the rooftops b/c I am finally done with the physical part of creating the second Bohemian Collective Magazine. This one seriously felt like it took a lifetime, but I'm so grateful to be at the point of exhale, b/c quite honestly, I need it. I think I tested my adrenals with this one, as it paralleled with other things going on in life that had me feeling quite tense. So now, I can exhale. I can just be for a while. Time for the down cycle to be here for a little while...
Anyway, I thought it would be fun to show a few behind the scenes of our photoshoot day. I didn't get many photos b/c the day was pretty packed, and it was just me and James. I was so fortunate to be able to shoot the lookbook at my friend's beautiful home. I so wish we could of postponed it another month b/c now this area is completely covered in greenery that was not there just a month ago! But still, its just a beautiful spot regardless.
Even though it was just me and James most of the time while we were shooting, this was a huge step out of my comfort zone of shooting only at my own home with a self timer. I could feel my nerves all day long, ha ha. I'm pretty silly like that. But in the end I was so proud of James, b/c he is NOT a photographer, but he did a great job taking direction and sticking in there with me through all of my awkwardness. It's been so fun to work with him as a team on so many projects, and I'm happy that he was here to help me with this one.
The morning of I was trying to stay as calm as possible, so I listened to some Dylan records and took my time getting ready. Keeping myself from feeling rushed and crazy.
Everything for the shoot filled up the entire backseat of our car! It took us two days of shooting to get all of the outfits done.
I made paleo muffins for the weekend and I'm so glad I did. It's hard to stop and eat, or even think about normal human functions when your in the middle of a big shoot, so these babies got me through when I didn't have time to think about what to put in my mouth.
Here's a little sneak peek of how the shoot went. Every little corner of my friend's home is so beautiful. I kinda just want to live there.
The magazine is coming out on May 1st! There is a 12 page editorial from this shoot in it! I get the proof in the mail today and I'm so excited!!! It's almost here!
