Recently, I took a trip down to NYC to assist on a photo shoot for the UK web magazine Fluxlings, a children’s fashion mag spin-off from Flux Magazine.
I met Chrystel, a French photographer based in NYC, at a Starbucks early that Sunday morning to discuss the shoot. Soon after, we left to meet the store owner of Les Petits Chapelais, the store providing the outfits for our model, Valentina. All the clothes sold in the small store were made in France.
Once Valentina, her mom, and the shop owner arrived, we got all the outfits together and set off around SoHo to shoot. The concept: portraits of a young girl in an urban setting, with romantic/dreamy tones thanks to her “soft” nature and overlaying images of butterflies during post processing.
Valentina turned out to be very cooperative and learned quickly how to act in front of the camera. As for my role, I mostly held the reflector.
In any case, here are the images published to Fluxlings’ web site.
