My last post ended on the note of the “Blue Cross Blue Shield” shoot of 20 children/babies and the boy who dreams of going to the moon… How fun is that? Kristen is the photographer and Libby is the stylist.
Unfortunately, I’m currently in New Mexico so I was a part of pre-production and I’m so anxious to see how it all turns out!
I began about two weeks ago, as I mentioned in the previous post that I was on the search for “moon boots”! As you can only imagine finding moon boots also known, as ski boots in the middle of July wasn’t so simple, however I finally found them on the West Coast, placed the order and they were on the way to us!
The next mission for me was to find 20 yes TWENTY strollers for the women to stroll in the shoot on a golf course… Ha! Well, I never really realized how expensive one stroller was but 20 was beyond ridiculous… So I spent the next 5 hours on the search for used strollers. I began calling every child’s consignment stores in the Coolsprings/Franklin/ Nashville area and after contacting several store managers and explaining our motive, I finally found 8 used strollers. Even with the strollers being used & lent to us it was still expensive. So we made a deal with Kid to Kid in Coolsprings, and they “lent” us the strollers with a smaller price to pay. We ended up paying full price for each stroller at the start of the shoot but then once all strollers were returned to the store we would receive half the payment back. Pretty fantastic deal, right? Oh, Libby is so clever!
*Note to remember- Shoots are always on a budget!
…. The next major project we have is pretty exciting!! I’ll keep you posted, it starts the end of September. Think a week of Fashion & Music at Belcourt Theater and 5 talented designers!
