Sometimes you have a vision. A vision that's not easily explained, but its there in your head. In the past this would frustrate me no end (as well as everyone around me) in trying to get everything PERFECT, because no one could see inside my head! I no longer strive for perfection (a lot less frustrating) but rather allow things to evolve.
This more relaxed version of my creative self has meant a true reflection in who I am and what I represent. I'm not trying to be anything other than myself and it certainly doesn't stop me from setting the usual high standards in everything I do.
So when started to shoot our first range the vision evolved into a beautiful, naturally creative experience. Our fabulous photographer, Kent Johnson, teamed up with our gorgeous models who had never EVER modelled before. Four beautiful, natural girls who embraced the experience, showcasing our very first line of products. We allowed the girls to choose their outfits and 'play around' and being close friends this was not hard for them. The shoot went fast and I wore many hats (nothing unusual for a start up), steaming garments, placing props, make-up, hair, direction and styling. Whch left little time for carefully constructed poses.
The result? Well, you won't get to see all 500 images, but can I tell you, going over which ones to select? OMG they were incredible! Hardly a bad image. How to choose THE SHOT!
The result is better than perfection.
Its MILLA + LOTTI!
Its fun, relaxed, easy and a little different.... and this is who we are.
