{Christmas Photoshoot : Part 1}

{ happy holidays! }

Gina and I are collaborating here today to share something that we're very excited about! As most of you have heard, a couple weeks ago we did a Christmas themed photoshoot which was shot by the amazing Char Beck. We each made a skirt which were both worn by our two rock-star models Martha and Camille! We transformed Gina's apartment with festivities galore (on a very low budget we might add), and the result was quite amazing! Special thanks as well to our two helpers, Marisa and Reena who also helped with the role of make-up artist when the one we booked went MIA! Take a peek at Part 1 of this festive shoot ...
