A day in the studio – what a photo shoot is like

January 11, 2012

Yesterday, in the studio we shot a fabulous photo shoot for Jill Rosenwald’s spring line.  The shoot was styled by the chic and talented Erin Gates Design of Elements of Style and her rock star assistant, Lindsay.  I also had the aid of an awesome assistant, Maggie Emerson.  Villanova University, where I spent my undergraduate years, held a take a student to work day, and I was paired with Maggie.  Maggie will be graduating in May and entering the big bad world, but it is not all bad.  Some days you get to create fabulously, fun photo shoots.    So, guest blogging here today we have Maggie, talking about her day in the studio with me.

Maggie Emerson-

“As a Villanova University senior with 5 months until the dreaded graduation, I jump at any opportunity to venture into the professional world.  I am lucky enough to share my Alma Mater with Sarah Winchester, with whom I was matched up for ‘Nova’s “Take a [wild]’Cat to Work Day,” and so yesterday I came into Boston to help out at the studio, where we did a shoot for Jill Rosenwald styled by Erin Gates.  I had an amazing time watching everything get put together, styled, put back together, changed some more and then shot.  It was a totally valuable experience which made me actually excited about my future (as a college senior, this is near impossible) and reaffirmed my beliefs that I am on the right path for myself.  Of course I Instragramed my way through the whole thing, and here are some scenes from the set.”
