On November 29, 2010 I was invited to collaborate with some fabulous local vendors for a photo shoot with some of the dress from the ju.Lee Collection. This photo shoot was inspired by artworks created by a local artist named Lacey Bryant. This was definitely my first time doing a photo shoot with an artist!
We had so much fun that day. Lacey created some exclusive artworks for the shoot. I was only able to capture a few images that day so I can sure with you right now. Here is a sneak peek before the final images are released later. Enjoy!
This is our inspiration board for the shoot.

Lacey painted the backdrop for the shoot. Featured here is the “New York” dress in buttermilk color.
Our talented hair and makeup stylist Monina Wright was prepping model Lindsey Freitas for the shoot.
I just love the tree that Lacey created! Featured here is the “Honolulu” dress in buttermilk.
Model Lindsey was a human easel for the paintings. Dress: “Honolulu” in buttermilk color.
Thank you ladies for a fantastic partnership!
