CARMEN

Literally obsessed with these images of Carmen Solomons of Photogenics LA! This day was so much fun!! I can't tell you enough how much fun I have shooting fashion.

Model: Carmen Solomons 

Agency: Photogenics LA

Stylist: Chanel Marshall @goldstruck 

HMUA: Caitlin Eve @caitlineve

My day for this shoot: 

Wake up at 6am and get ready/ prep all of my photo gear/eat a hard boiled egg

7am: Get coffee and gas and met Carmen at 8am at her house with the Caitlin. 

8am-9am hung out with Caitlin and Carmen while we got the first makeup look ready

9am-10am stuck in traffic going to DTLA and then realized we could have carpooled, but realized it to late, but oh well we had great girl convo!!

We met Chanel at 10am on top of Grand Central Market (one of my fav spots to meet at for a DTLA shoot)

We started by walking around DTLA and the area around ground central market which is pretty gritty and very street vibe which was the inspo for this shoot along with the pink outfits. 

We photographed like 6 or 7 looks and then once we wrapped around 3ish (i think, maybe longer) we got food to go and I dropped off Carmen and Caitlin and then headed home for a night of editing! 

It takes a lot of prepping/planning for a shoot like this. I start two weeks out by emailing my girl Caitlin with inspo and we put our team together and I have to email the agency back and forth until we get all the details solid. Then it's go time! Nothing gives me greater joy than that moment I lock up my apartment and set out for an adventure!! Hope you enjoy the photos
