Suit Up! (The Making Of A Coney Island Photo Shoot)

These pictures give me so much life and joy!  Once again, Joe Bradley on camera kills it. This shoot came together in a moment's notice.  Joe was travelling to NYC for some work there and decided it would be a great opportunity to shoot since we would have some gorgeous talent from the Big Apple with whom to work.  Oh to wear a bathing suit like our model Michelle. 

We originally planned to shoot at swimming pool, but who in NYC has an open pool in the middle of February?  Public beaches are great, but not just any beach, Coney Island!  The project all came together so quickly.  Once we had the location determined, Joe knew he wanted a bright, punchy and fun wardrobe. I sat down at my computer and scoured the internet for the brightest, punchiest and most fun product I could find on some of my favorite websites.  I shipped all the product straight to him in New York, and since I couldn't be there the day of, I sent him this little collage so he would know what went with what.

I am completely blown away by the photos.  I want to blow them up and frame them as art work in my home.  Look for this issue of SouthPark Magazine on news stands at the kiosks outside of Neiman Marcus, Belk and Nordstrom at SouthPark Mall.
