Foxwoods Resort & Casino

I spent a total of 10 days at Foxwoods Resort & Casino, 5 of the days we were shooting both photo and video at the same time. Me and my team dressed over a 100 people in several different outfits through out the week and when it was all said an done everyone on the crew of this job was exhausted. I have been to casino’s all around the country and Foxwoods is a casino worth staying at. I ate at every single restaurant, and would eat at every single one again. Below are some moments of the week that made me smile.

I didn’t get rolling racks until mid day of day one shooting. The shower rod in my hotel room bathroom became my wardrobe rack. Needless to say I only took baths.

So I screen shotted this from the person who took this picture. This is a picture of the entire crew (minus) my four wardrobe assistants. As you can see it took a village.

Swansons Nursery

Seattle is a big enough city to always be shooting at different locations. The latest discovery for me was the best garden store I have found in Seattle, nestled in Ballard called Swansons Nursery. Swansons had a koi pond, restaurant/ kitchen called Barn & Field , indoor clean restrooms, and most importantly an amazing indoor plants section. Seattle has many beautiful plant stores but Swansons Nursery has been the biggest selection I have seen in one place. Check out some of the BTS photo’s below:

Blue Nile

Behind the Scenes  (BTS) with jewelry company Blue Nile. I love… love…love working with brands. Helping a company already showcase what they sell is so much fun. Partly because the client has such a clear vision of what they what. Knowing what the client whats, when the clients sometimes doesn’t even know can be a challenge. Hence working with brands that already know what they want is fun! With that said I showed up to this shoot with suits and dresses and almost everything was shot. I spent the day adjusting jewelry and hanging with a fun crew. Blue Nile is a Seattle based jewelry company located in the Seattle neighborhood of Pioneer Square.

Inspired By Frida Kahlo

Frida Kahlo inspired shoot, yes please. When I first was pitched is concept the only thing knew about Frida was she wore giant milk maid braid with flowers. After a quick google search, I found a movie based on Frida Kahlo’s life which helped me get a little more inspired by Frida Kahlo’s style. Frida was a bad ass that did art on her own terms. I have a lot of fun on these types of creative shoots. Hunting for jems in the city of the Seattle was pretty easy for this one. JJ Caprices is an on-line retailer based in Seattle that had the perfect jewelry for this story.
