WHAT REALLY HAPPENS BEHIND THE SCENES
In preparation for the launch of our brand spanking new website, we got to get down with the fun stuff - the photo shoot.
We’re pretty sure that anyone who has never been on a real-life photo shoot probably has a very limited idea of what that entails - and so did we…
Our new brand is all built around our girl gang vibes, and keeping in line with that, we want our fellow females to learn and be inspired with us every step of the way - So below is sharing with you the good, bad and ugly run down of our first ever Me-Me BTS …
STEP 1 - THE EARLY START
So we know nothing worth having comes easy, and OF COURSE we were super excited for our first ever shoot - But this was shot early November, and so we had to be up really early to catch the daylight, on a WEEKEND. Pass the espresso plz xo
STEP 2 - THE LOCATION
So going out and achieving street cool vibes as effortless as our clothing SOUNDS great and easy enough, but it definitely not. Note to self: Expect lairy builders, and try not to lurk in the background of all of the shots in future…
STEP 3 - CHASE THE SUNLIGHT
Sunlight is key, especially when you can catch the glare from your highlighter. Expect to run around town chasing those glorious beams of sunshine, and have models who are prepared to smize directly into it for some power shots.
STEP 4 - USE YOUR SURROUNDINGS
Just like for a good outdoorsy insta pic, your surroundings are your only prop on a photoshoot like ours. That in mind, you see a good wall? Hug it. Bike rails on the side? Mount them. Cute staircase in the background? Treat it like a throne.
STEP 5 - THE STUDIO
After battling the elements to capture your fierce street shots, retiring to the warmth of the studio is real life heaven for any gal. For those of us who weren’t born models, take this opportunity to sit around eating snacks, dabble in the make-up artist’s kits and take notes on poses for your next Instagram post.
STEP 6 - 4 IS BETTER THAN 1.
Energy is everything on a photo shoot, and we were lucky enough to have the coolest team on ours. Work together, flaunt each others best features and thrive off each other - take these points to your next Instagram shoot and watch the likes get LIT.
