The first business owner I approached for the HoMEGRoWN project project was Audrey. I had worked with her on a campaign celebrating all of the different body types that women can have, and knew I wanted to highlight her for this project.
Her store is full of beautiful things… to wear, to look at, to covet. Audrey is queen of customer service and wants everyone who enters to feel special and well cared for. (And a side note… her window decorations for the Magnolia Park holiday event always rock!)
Audrey felt a little self-conscious during the photo shoot (as she’s usually doting on someone else and not the center of attention,) but she handled it with grace and a winning smile. I count myself lucky to have worked with her, and wish only great things for her future.
For her conceptual image, I wanted to combine her retro fashions that have caught up with trends for today. The model is the same on the magazine cover as the one holding the magazine. My only regret is that you can’t see the beautiful neckline on the dress designed by Audrey in the image.
