It was February, and I had one of the most amazing and exciting opportunities come my way since I started modeling back in 2006. Michael Sakas & Michael Donnor are photographers that on occasion come together to collaborate on photographic projects, and both have a talent for creating a sense of grit, reality and ethereal sensuality in their works. Sakas contacted me asking if I could model for the RedHouse Project and I couldn't say no.
The 2-day project was shot entirely on film. It consisted of myself & 3 other models living it up and shooting in Donner's AMAZING house in Holland, NY. Unfortunately, I can only have the pictures of myself up on here, so to see the other gorgeous girls, click on the links I gave to Sakas & Donner's websites.
The idea was that we were four friends staying in a cottage to get away and have a weekend of fun, being youths in the snow and all. The weekend consisted of different scenarios from lounghing around the house, to sitting in a make-shift hot tub constructed out of an actual old bathtub and a wood burning fire underneath. In short, it was an absolute blast.
AND OMG YOU GUYS THE CLOTHES. THE CLOTHES. Okay, so the stylist Molly Hoeltke was totally kickass and had some fantastic vintage clothes for the shoot. That green silk dress that I'm wearing is from the 30's, it was so delicate and lovely. She also threw in some of my own clothes that I wore to the shoot (you might recognize that cream/black blazer, the aviators and that striped tank!)
SO yeah, for a more in-depth look at what the shoot was about, head on over to http://www.sakasphoto.com/REDHOUSEPROJECT.html.
Maybe one of these days I'll post some other shots from my modeling portfolio :D
