it’s been a few months since i have dreamt up a shoot, so i was really excited to dive in with this shoot! we’ve been working with them for awhile now and it’s always such a fun partnership. it was one of those magical days where everything was running smoothly, and just a lot of positive creative energy on set. here are some of my favorites from the day!

CONCEPT:

day in the life of a girl who loves the sunshine and her alone time. she loves sitting peacefully in beautiful spaces. floating with her pet swan, laying in the grass, playing with shadows. fits perfectly with this story line, they are a vibrant company that is making jewelry a gift to give yourself, a friend, a family member or someone you love. it doesn’t have to be a romantic gift from a partner and i love that. the vibe is a midcentury pink house, 60’s vibe. edward scissorhands styling inspiration (trimmed hedges, pastel colors, quirky), with the laid back virgin suicides feeling. in the pool, i want to play with the reflections and sunlight. focused in on her ears as she is underwater or just above water line. vintage style clothing, muted, colorful. fun props like fringed umbrellas, sequined fruit, eye mask, jello molds…and a SWAN!

very into this whole blue scene and this dress that looked like something out of a figure skating dream. for this scene we used blue and white and also their pierced collection. i love the way the hang, they’re really subtle and beautiful and wearing them paired was very pretty. each necklace as two clasps which makes layering easy.

    These look like old film stills. I am absolutely obsessed with this shoot. You and Jesse are a dream team.

    Hillary says:

    These are so amazing! Stunning! For a shoot like this, do you go in with a specific shotlist and number of shots needed or do you improvise as you go? Thanks!!

    bri says:

    hey hillary,
    i always create a shot list that i can pass along to the crew to make sure we’re all on the same page and also a list of general objectives that we need to capture and include, like specific product shots, etc. we have a set number of images that we have to deliver to the client but i always end up having way more images than needed. once on set we kinda just roll with it and it always turns out better than i’d hoped! Xx

    Can’t tell you enough how inspiring it is to see your process <3 This came out gorgeous! You’ve worked with Vacation Theory before… what’s the process with them? Do you provide general moods/inspiration/art direction for objects/set/shots and they help to scout location, source props, and talent? Thank you, Bri!

    bri says:

    hey jess,

    good question! generally, we approach them and tell them the kind of shoot we want to do, the budget, concept, etc. and they help us secure the team including the model and location. and then we do all the creative, like the props, and the mood boards, shot list, etc. it helps so much to have them on shoots as they handle the things like permits, insurance, location specifics like do we have to lay down protective flooring, craft services, restrooms, parking, releases, etc. there is so much that goes into these shoots! they handle the logistics so i can focus on the creative! Xx

    The shoot is very beautiful.

    I was wondering if the client[s] ever give you grief that the jewelry isn’t very visible in a good amount of the shots?

    Just thinking about my own clients and their feedback on shoots!

    bri says:

    hey silva! we shoot tons of different options, this shoot had almost 100 different images and we let them pick which ones they love. but they also love that we’re telling a story with the photos and that the brand messaging is tied into the story line. we think of it has a full campaign and less of product shots if that makes sense and then we make sure to talk about the pieces and the brand in the copy. Xx

    thank you for sharing this creative process with us! it was fantastic! I loved Willie, the swan. <3 me and my friends have an online thrift store and we also try to create shootings for our campaigns. you inspire us!

    So beautiful, love these pictures! Beautiful aesthetic, I love Edward Scissorhands, I def see it, great inspo and colors 🙂
