Behind the scenes: Content Magazine fashion photo shoot


I can’t believe there are only 8 days left before Christmas. While a (big) part of me wishes the holiday season would go on forever, I have to admit, I am excited for the new year. We found a real charmer of an apartment which has kitchen counter space, closet space, and a completely unnecessary (but darling nonetheless) fireplace that we’ll be moving into on the first!

I’ve also been busy working on Content Magazine, a life and style magazine with a focus on all things hip and stylish in San Jose. Beginning January 7, we’ll be posting new content every Friday, and while the emphasis will be on highlighting San Jose, I think there will be a lot that will appeal to a much larger audience. I’m excited to be working with our small core team, including the very talented Daniel Garcia who has photographed people I have only ever seen on TV (like Rebecca Romijn). I got to hang out at a recent shoot (which involved me holding props and saying things like “ooh, I like that”– you know, very important stuff) where the outfits were based on simple, shimmery, and lacy pieces. Since it was my first ever fashion photo shoot– with a real model, a hair and makeup stylist, a clothing stylist, and all that jazz — I snapped a few photos to share if you’d like to see.

All done up! (I felt very short on this day.)

The clothes!

Hair and makeup!

More hair– a sweet, retro-inspired updo

Fixing and adjusting folds, the hang of clothes, accessories and hair was a bigger part of the shoot than I would have imagined. It all paid off though because in the end, the pictures Daniel took were amazing.

Please be sure to check out Content Magazine on January 7 and stay tuned for the full fashion editorial piece. We’re all very excited about what we’ve been working on and can’t wait to share it with you in the new year!
