Behind the scenes at a boutique photo shoot

We typically photograph around 20 different looks during a 2-hour shoot. It’s a whirlwind and it couldn’t go smoothly without the cooperation of the whole team including our model, El DiSanti.  She works with me to get quick, lively shots of each garment, including detail shots of the most unique items. There’s no time to waste, and outfit changes are lightening-quick. In order to photograph 20 looks in under 2 hours, we have about 5-6 minutes per outfit to dress, style, and photograph each look in detail.

At the end of the shoot, we’re spent, but we’ve accomplished a lot, and the team’s hard work shows in the final products. Here’s a quick look behind the curtain at a boutique photo shoot.
