If you haven't been to Boston, you really need to take a trip out here. Boston is absolutely stunning with some of the most gorgeous historical buildings. I knew I just had to take advantage of the Boston charm so our first photoshoot took place at the Fairmont Copley Plaza Hotel.
The team started to arrive at 12:30pm and we were promptly brought to our hotel room. The hair and makeup team were all set up and ready to work their magic on the models, Sherry and Leanne. Karen, the Wardrobe Stylist, got all the outfits steamed and prepped for the models and she ensured the day went smooth, according to the schedule. Thanks Karen!
By the way, we used gorgeous hair extensions from Heavenly Lox to give our models a fuller and longer hair length. If you're debating which brand to go with, I highly recommend you check them out. Their hair quality is beyond any other I've seen and the prices are super competitive.

As the models were getting prepped, the media crew which by the way, is the absolute best dream team- ever. The Photographers Tony DeJesus (www.antoniodejesus.com) and Robert Hare (www.robertharephotography.com) and Adriel Bencosme scoured the location to see what spots would best photograph for the T-shirts. People don't realize the crazy things Photographers will do to find the best location to photograph. Yep, in an effort to find some awesome spots, all 3 of them got stuck in an elevator ha ha but they were able to get out... eventually. ;)

This shoot will forever have a special place in my heart for a couple reasons. It was the first shoot to capture my first line of tees, of course. The models braved the chilly temperature shooting in T-shirts - thank you so much Sherry and Leanne! Also, my 9 month old daughter tagged along for the shoot as well. A special thanks to my assistant, Marisela for watching her when I had to run around.
