Secret Garden: Photo Shoot With Kyle Johnson

With the spring/ summer season here it is only necessary to do a spring inspired fashion editorial. To read more about my pre-production process click "Styling and Storyboard: Garden Photo Shoot". I definitely wanted to showcase a series of textures and floral prints with orange, pruple, and teal tones.

Producer/Photographer: Kyle Johnson
Photographer/Lighting: Sarah Jurado
Art Direction/Wardrobe Stylist: Osiris Navarro
Makeup Artist: Calvy Tran
Model: Kristen
Special Thanks: Naomi B., Katie Cox, and Parsons Garden

The Golden Hour- Thanks to my lovely friend Naomi B. for designing this beautiful cocktail dress and Kim Cox for the feather head piece. This look was by far my favorite outfit showcased in Seattle Fashion Week. The natural lighting in this series is perfect!

Purple Lovechild- When I was conceptualizing this look I wanted to do a different play on the "hippie" theme. Usually there are lots of tans, reds, leathers, and denim when throwing together a hippie/ boho look so I thought using bright vibrant playful colors would be different. I am not one to customize or sew outfits, but I dyed this dress purple the night before and it turned out pretty nice.

Secret Garden- This season I am overdosing on some serious hues of purples and violets. I love it and this picture shows how much I love it. I layered two dresses in this shoot and thought it would be interesting to juxtapose a classic 1950's dress with small floral prints on the bottom and pair it with a current smocked tube dress with tropical blossoms over.

Sunkist- The burnt orange skirt with floral bodysuit was one of the more casual looks of the shoot. Kristen looks lovely in anything and this outfit really showcases her amazing legs and that perfect size 24 waist!

Nice photos. One thing for crit on the techie side would be for the adjustment of the skin tones as they look a bit off. Maybe less saturation also.
