I recently had the opportunity to be the artistic director and stylist for Mosaic‘s photo shoot with photographer Cameron Powell. Mosaic tours around the states doing shows, mainly at churches and schools, and they are about to release a new record. I met with them several times to plan out the look for their album photography, their clothes, and their locations. We shot three different scenes at two different locations: Bookman Bookwoman in Hillsboro Village and a farm in Brentwood. The outfits for the bookstore shots were darker and more vintage, the farm scene was modeled after Anthropologie ads, and the last scene was inspired by Tuck Everlasting and the Secret Garden.

Here are a few of the behind the scenes shots I snuck in. Check back to see an example of Cameron‘s finished product!
Check out this sweet little guy. Jasper loves collecting rocks, jumping on trampolines, blowing bubbles and feeling the wind on his face. He also has the most fabulous red hair I’ve ever seen. Let me just say it again, I do not like studio backdrops for family portraits (or really for anything). Kids especially just were not meant to sit still in front of a backdrop with lights aimed at them. They were meant to run free and have nice natural smiles because they are genuinely having fun! My job is to catch that pure joy in a picture. Jasper and I had a lot of fun yesterday. It really was more of a play date than a photo session…. and really that’s how they all should be anyways!
