Before my sweet little bella Talia P. decided to take a leap of faith and relocate to NYC a few weeks ago, she wanted to get together to take some pictures. Pursuing a career in fashion writing and possibly pr/marketing, she’s planning on launching her own blog soon, so we shot a myriad of looks to capture her personal style, but to also juxtapose it against the sometimes grittiness of the South without tying it to a specific Memphis landmark.
Our friend @ovoisis scouted the perfect starting location for us, and to say we had fun (the shoot ended with laughs + margaritas) is an understatement. I like the fact that Talia’s style runs the fashion gamut-she can be fresh faced + sweet, tomboyish, and a little sultry depending on her mood. She’s No Angel.
