Behind the Scenes at Our Holiday Photo Shoot

Shoot days at Elsie Green are our favorite.  We have food props, foraged flowers and branches, lots of snacking and there's usually someone with a film camera to capture the people behind the camera.  This time it was Andie with her vintage Minolta SRT-100 shooting Kelsey (photographer) and Terra (stylist).

one of our shoot days fell on Katie's 17th birthday, so we indulged in Milk Bar Pie and kelsey's chocolate, olive oil and citrus cake from the Canelle et Vanille cookbook baked for the shoot

the girls brought me this perfectly composed treat after I wandered out of my office onto set and mentioned I hadn't had breakfast

terra and kelsey don't like to shoot anything they wouldn't eat, so at the end of the day, we feast!
Note:  Andie got her film camera at the National Camera Exchange and shoots  on Kodak 400 ISO color.
