[behind the scenes] About Town Magazine Spring Photo Shoot

It was a beautiful day in Ocean Beach shooting an editorial for the Spring 2014 issue of About Town Magazine, a San Diego online publication based out of La Jolla. We were shooting in a beautiful home right on the water, and although the day started out gray, the marine layer burned away quickly, giving us the perfect weather for shooting both indoors and outdoors around our set. After days of pulling from local boutiques, we had the perfect wardrobe to create fun San Diegan style outfits for our gorgeous model.

It was such a nice day in Ocean Beach!

We had so much fun climbing around the cliffs to find the perfect backgrounds for the photos
The two swimwear looks-- I was especially in love with the buckles on the orange suit and the turquoise necklace paired with the white suit.

It's so interesting how much of a difference lighting can make in a shot. One of the photo assistants had to hold a huge umbrella for a looong time to keep the glare off of the plants in the background outside.

Sometimes photographers have to do crazy things to get the perfect shot!

The whole crew!
