Studio Love

A few months ago I was lucky enough to have the opportunity to work with Brooklyn-based photographer Michael Popp. It's Mikey Popp for cool, Mike Popp for casual, and M. Popp for short. Well at least that's what I decided just now for no particular reason. Anywho, isn't that such a happy fun name? I hope you'll take the time to browse through his website geniously named www Michael Popp dot com. What I love is how well each of his photos captures emotion, energy, and observation. It truly does, you should see this guy work, this is definitely a case where passion is prevalent and vision is natural.

Working in a studio was a learning experience to say the least.  A bit scary at first because you realise how much more detail these professional cameras can capture when they have a professional behind the lense.  Then you start to loosen up and feel like Cindy Crawford. It's one of those weird things that instantly happens when you're looking so damn thrifty.

I hope you love these photos of my friend Michelle. I took pictures of her once in a thrifted waflle grandpa sweater (here) that do not compare to the gorgeous greek goddess she is below. She's a vision in blue.  We thrifted this dress that very same day as the grandpa sweater at Goodwill. The elastic belt she is wearing I had previously thrifted at Salvation Army, but when I saw them together I knew it was a match made in thrift heaven.  The look was very much inspired by the simplicity of Lanvin Spring 2011 and his famous hit of the collection, the one-shouldered dress.
