My Styling: "All A Glow" Maternity Fashion Shoot

In the dead of the August heat, I creatively directed and styled a maternity shoot for the October edition of Elite Magazine.

The goal for this project was to make a maternity spread that was glamorous and sexy, unlike some of the rather boring maternity photos I've seen in some magazines. So we decided to take our shots at a lagoon in Mazarick Park and in the woods to illustrate the mother in various seasons - from fall to spring - looking fabulous and elegant along the way.

But it was 100 degrees outside and rather difficult to think cool, autumn thoughts when you can barely breathe due to the oppressive humidity! Yet, the creative team and I worked our way through it.

Raul Rubiera was the photographer for this project, and MAC makeup artist Monique Soto was responsible for the flawless makeup on model Anca Stefan.
Monique works her magic on Anca.

Anca was nearly nine months pregnant at the time of the shoot, but she did an awesome job of posing in extreme conditions (i.e. wading in a lagoon and working outdoors for upwards of 12 hours). I think she inspired all of us to hit the gym during our pregnancy, so we can look half this good!




The October edition of Elite Magazine is already on newsstands, but I'll be posting more of the final images next week. Be sure to check back to see them!
