Sunflower Girls

You may remember me going to the Dixon sunflower field last summer at 5:30 in the morning. This past year, I did a fashion photo shoot there, this time at sunset. You may recognize one of the models, Serena, from the Smile Balm video I shot last year. Ever since my eyes feasted themselves on the ethereal dreamworld of Pull & Bear’s Spring 2011 campaign, I’d wanted to create a flower look with pressed flowers on the models’ faces. It was over 100 degrees that day and the field was open with no shade. We were afraid of rushing to catch golden hour, but got to the location way too early and had to wait hours for the sun to set. Serena and Robin are two of the funniest people I know and provided relentless entertainment. Once the sun got low, the golden hour went by in 30 speedy minutes. It was the shortest golden hour I’ve ever experienced! We ran back and forth to the car for outfit changes. Photo shoots always give me so much energy and anxiety, but I’m happy with the way they came out!
