Abbey Post's Plus Size Photo Shoot

3 years ago

Photo Shoot

Every job has its perks. As a barista you may get unlimited coffee, as a consultant you have a ridiculous number of airline miles, and as a Mom you receive frequent free hugs (and gooey things).  The world of fashion isn't really always as glamorous as it appears to be, but there's one job requirement that we can't wait to jump out of bed to attend... a Photo shoot!

And lucky you: we're taking you behind the scenes of our latest photo shoot, complete with a whole crew of gorgeous Plus Size models, a super-talented photographer, awesome hair and makeup professionals, and our amazing Creative Director who pulls it all together!  Come with us... What exactly is so magical about photo shoot day? It's more than the fashion; it's the energy of creative people coming together for a single purpose – to make an image that shares the experience of wearing great clothes

What does that look like? Check out our video below!

The day started early in a Lower East Side penthouse in New York City – the kind of setting that makes you wonder what you would have to do for a living to make this glorious place your home. The view is spectacular. The space is incredible.

Then there are the racks of clothes – luscious smooth fabrics and radiant colors drip from sparkling metal hangers. And wonder of wonders, since these models eat real food, there are flakey breakfast biscuits on a table near piles of shiny & gorgeous BaubleBar jewelry. Did I mention it's like heaven?

Photo Shoot

The models are naturally gorgeous. As the makeup and hair team begin to work on the ladies their features stand out even more. Everyone is so beautiful that you can't help a twinge of annoyance that you don't see these faces or bodies represented in the majority of fashion. Then again, everyone is so beautiful that you forget the feeling as quickly as you had it.

 

The first model is done with hair and makeup and moves onto the white paper. She's in the photographer's world now. The model moves between clicks and flashes as the photographer offers the occasional direction.

After 15 or so flashes the Creative Director steps in to adjust the model's belt, add a jacket, take away a necklace, and the process repeats until it's time for the next look.

Once the photo shoot is underway the models rotate between hair, makeup, photographer, and lunch!

The models even shot some pictures of their own.

And so the process goes until every look has been captured, and it's time to pack up and go home. Check back soon to see the wonderful images our photographer captured!

We hope you enjoyed this peek behind the scenes. We sure have fun creating the beautiful, Made to Measure fashions of AbbeyPost just for you!
