Love & Sunflowers is one of my favorite brands to work with. During my recently photoshoot for their Spring 2016 collection, I wanted to shoot in a fun and playful lifestyle location. I picked Venice Canals and Topenga Canyon in Los Angeles as the perfect spot. I decided on these two locations to add variety to the brand’s imagery. Last time we shot at the beach in Malibu and I wanted to add a new environment to the lifestyle brand.
I focused on the two models playing, having fun and being active in the clothing. The two girls were jumping around in the sunkissed morning to show off the versatility and easily wearable quality of the clothing. I wanted the photos to evoke happiness, sunshine and warmth. To capture the playful side of Love & Sunflowers in a subtle way, we incorporated a few props - sunflowers, a classic cruiser bike and a cute French bulldog. I love using props likes these in a lifestyle shoot to add character and personality to the photos. It was important to capture the two girls being friends and having fun together without the photos looking forced or staged. Love & Sunflowers Spring 2016 lookbook was a huge success and I am looking forward to capturing more images with them soon!
