“Falling” by Jimmy Marble for SXSW
I am so excited to share with you these series of photos that photographer-director Jimmy Marble & I shot for the new SXSW (a music festival) posters. Just when I think that I’ve done just about every type of shoot possible, I’m proven wrong. I spent half the day jumping & falling sideways on a trampoline (which resulted in severe whiplash. Do not try at home). Jimmy is a bubbly, bright personality (which also reflects in his colorful photographs) & so the shoot was lovely and relaxed. Makeup artist Bethany Toews worked her magic & gave me a classic Hollywood look with a bright red lip- which is by favorite. Now you know (but you probably already knew!). She also was very motherly and kind to me, because I was actually pretty sick and it was only getting worse as the hours went by. So loving. Stylist Georgia Stockwell (ggggbone!) was super-cool & effortlessly talented. She knew what clothes fit my body type and I LOVE when stylists pay attention to this. It means the world to me, because sometimes stylists assume that I can also fit into a 00. Hello, I have a Marilyn-esque body with shoulders, hips and legs! I can cheat almost anything and make a garment look good, but it warms my heart and makes me want to jump up and down when a stylist dresses my body for what it is. Because it’s true & it does matter- nice, fitting clothes makes a woman feel beautiful.
The entire team was a pleasure to work with, and I can’t wait to hopefully collaborate with them again soon.
Some backstage shots!
