Walkin’ on Sunshine 🎶
Joey and I have been doing photoshoots since 8th grade. From finding cool murals and fun locations to shoot at to putting together the finishing touches on that #ootd, it’s safe to say that mastering the photoshoot has become a passion of ours. Biased, but I think we’re getting pretty damn good at it. It also helps that I’ve known Joey since elementary school, and we’re both so comfortable with each other. The camera works in your favor when you’re being yourself.
It’s a hell of a feeling when all the moving parts and pieces come together to create one image that not only evokes hundreds of words and emotions but is a representation of YOU at this current moment in your life. It’s taking an outfit, a stance, a backdrop, and developing a storyline out of it.
Almost all pieces from this shoot are thrifted from my two favorites: Buffalo Exchange and Housing Works. If you haven’t gone, GO. Tons of amazing brands and unique items for great prices. The bonus with Housing Works is that all Thrift Shop proceeds help fund their mission to end AIDS and homelessness. Yup – it’s a win-win.
