To make up for all the many days and weeks of neglect on my blog, I’m now going to make up for it by offering up a doozy.
Way way back in the day, STYLO magazine made its debut, and I had the crazy luck to land a spot in it, after having replied to a cryptic call out from a blog I followed (celina’s lovely Petit a Petit and Family) for people who like photography and sewing kids clothes. It was a really intense experience at the time, and I learned a lot from it. And this huge sense of accomplishment followed seeing my work in the finished STYLO publication.
So here I am again, drafting in the wake of the coolness that is STYLO 4.
I’m giving you a preview today, with more pictures and details on patterns and fabric sources to come later, of my first shoot (don’t worry! the other kids got in too!).
This shoot takes you on a little journey with a street urchin who is sad to be living in a world without color. Till she takes matters into her own hands….
And she turns her black and white world into one of bursting color.
Changing the world is tiring business.
I’ll be busy shooing my kids and trying to flip through the latest STYLO today, and I encourage you to do so as well! The editors, Jessica and Celina, and all the contributors never fail to exceed expectations. It’s always hard for me to believe that everyone putting this together is pretty much “amateur”. Some professional photography is involved with some of the shoots, but all of the spreads are done by ladies at home with sewing machines, who are crazy enough to make awesome clothes themselves. Kind of cool. The final product is always rock star.
I’ll see you again soon with a whole bunch of photos of my crazy cool post apocalyptic street urchin child, and all the details you could ask for. Plus I still have to show you my second shoot! (trust me there will be some funny at my own expense stories to go with that one)……
