I am lucky in that I have two sisters. They are two of the most wonderful people I know. One lives up the street from us in Brooklyn, which, considering the size of this city and the independent routes we took to come to be neighbors, is a bit remarkable. It also makes me trés happy.
Which is all to say, when I landed on the idea of a lifestyle photoshoot to highlight some of my designs, my beautiful sister was my go-to model. By a stroke of luck, I thought of these three colored brick walls on the morning of the shoot, all between our apartments, which I hadn’t noticed until I started looking at the neighborhood through “photoshoot eyes.”
I can say now that my favorite thing about photographing a sister/model is knowing precisely what was making her laugh in each moment. I would love to do another with both of my sisters one day, when the geographic and timing stars align.
The top photo is what I’m calling my favorite of the outtakes.
A fun day, with lovely results, if I may say so. And my goodness, it was actually sunny! More of that please. Hallelujah.
