I styled a shoot with photographer Art Brewer this past week for Rancho Mission Viejo. Lots of cool lifestyle images will showing up everywhere very soon. This is the first image that was just released.
The goal as the stylist was to dress the family in upscale apparel that had an easy, yet casual elegance to it, yet did not take away or compete with the visuals of the property. I used a neutral palette with a bit of subtle pattern and texture and chose brands like Tory Burch, Tommy Bahama, Joie, Alice & Olivia, Calypso, and even a couple pieces from Madewell and J.Crew. The kids stayed in more California lifestyle brands like Quiksilver, Volcom, and even some nice pieces I found at Target. Jewelry was kept minimal, nice upscale watch for him, gold jewelry that was simple but nice, for her.
I have done lifestyle styling for over 20 years and I really enjoy delving into shoots like this as I love fashion, and on sports shoots that doesn’t always come into play.
Fun shoot day with a great crew of people!
