Is this real life?! I was asked to be a photographer at a fashion shoot for an incredible derby hat line (Derby Hats by Rachelle) as well as tie line (Carrillo and Heslip Originals). Words can't explain how talented these people are - everyone including the designers, the makeup artists, the hair stylist, the models, the stylists... everyone! To be surrounded by such talent was such an amazing experience. Pinch me!! And aside from the amazing talent, everyone involved was incredibly friendly, down to earth, funny, and just a pleasure to be around. Here are a few photos from the shoot! My heart and soul went into these.
