A Photographer In Front Of The Lens
When the idea came to mind to start a blog series showcasing our designers’ collections on “real” people, I felt like this was a good opportunity to challenge myself and try something I’m not comfortable or familiar with - modeling. The morning of our shoot I was nervous. Will I disappoint our photographer with my non existing experience in posing (resulting in stiffness and awkwardness)? Will I frustrate our hair and make up artist with my imperfect skin and thin hair? And why haven’t I lost a few pounds in the last few weeks? Oh how unnecessary all those fears were. Elizabeth, our photographer, helped me to feel comfortable in front of the lens quickly and with each outfit I gained confidence in simply being myself. The outcome of this shoot: a little quirky, a little dramatic, a lot of beautiful and SO MUCH FUN. Combining IGOR pieces with other brand’s styles to create a younger look in this downtown Seattle photoshoot was a fun experiment. We hope you enjoy the outcome, and please also meet one of my dogs, Teddy.
