Karen Wu of Three Dolls Boutique found me through Madeline Roosevelt. About 3 years ago, Karen started her own design label. Before designing, she was a boutique owner in Sherman Oaks, Ca carrying contemporary brands. Now with Three Dolls Boutique, she’s carrying the brands online. Her website will be launched soon. She said that she needed editorial images for her front page of the website as well as some pages which features/showcase some key pieces.
At first it didn’t look like the shoot was going to happen, because Karen needed the photos ASAP but my schedule couldn’t accommodate. I was booked the entire month of September, but as luck would have it, a few things got moved and Karen came down from Seattle for the last minute photoshoot.
The challenge for this shoot was shooting in mid day with no clouds. Oh how I miss the sunshine already. Damn you Portland. Check out the behind the scenes video for a little tip on how to shoot in broad daylight using strobes. Oh and did you get your tickets?
I can’t thank Darren Utt enough for his great behind the scenes video captures. If you’re a photographer and need behind the scenes videos to promote yourself, Darren is your guy!
