Behind the Scenes of a Photo Shoot

Amy Tangerine Behind the Scenes

When I was in college I was working as a freelance fashion stylist in Atlanta. Shortly after I graduated, I started my own company producing photo shoots for various clients like magazines and print catalogs. It was a really fun experience and I miss the collaborative outings of those creative photo shoots. Thankfully, I still get to dabble in it every now and again. This time though I was asked to model for my friend Alisha of LISH Creative after Forme Comfort thought my legs would look good for some of their photos. Plus I was able to lend some of my chalk lettering skills as well. It was such a fun day!

Hope you enjoy the video!

Happy Halloween + a little behind the scenes

If you're following along on Instagram, you probably already saw on Stories (I love and don't love that they disappear within 24 hours) that I had a cute little assistant helping behind the scenes of this photo shoot. I had it all set up in the kitchen where there is excellent and even natural light on most days. After doing some variations, I left it set up in case it needed further tweaking, but I had to pick Jack up from preschool. Once we got home, it was one of the first things he noticed and he said, "I want to help you do your work." Love that he is genuinely interested in what I need to do for work sometimes and that he can actually be a little assistant every once in a while.

I lettered this using my latest paint obsession - Dr. Ph Martin's Watercolors. This XL watercolor pad that's 18x24 inches has really come in handy for the larger scale projects I have been working on. Hope you enjoyed this little peek into what goes on.
