The photographer for this shoot was Julien McRoberts. Originally from Santa Fe and now based in New York City, she has worked with many other designers. We met at a professional networking event for women and connected right away.
As a photographer she has a keen eye and a distinct point of view. She was able to find the perfect background for each item, one that would bring out the detailing of the featured garment. Easy-going and understanding, she was a real pleasure to work with!
Julien selected the location and presented me with several options for the model. I ended up choosing Lena Diene. French from Divonne-Les-Bains, Lena has a classical beauty that I felt would suit the clothes and the setting perfectly. She was flexible and charming and together with Julien we had the dream team. There was a certain effortlessness to our work and it was in large part due to our synergy.
