Have you ever wondered what it takes to get beautiful photos of Petunia Pickle Bottom diaper bags and accessories each season? The whole process starts here at Petunia Pickle Bottom HQ, where our Creative Director, Stylist and CMO plan out a photo shoot with mood boards and secret pins on Pinterest, but it all truly comes to life with the help of talented models, a gorgeous location, and an amazing photographer. So, here’s a behind-the-scenes look at the places and talent behind our latest Spring 2015 photo shoot.
The location: To capture the warmth and beauty of Spring, we headed to the CA Central Coast for our photo shoot. We chose the Madonna Inn as our first location for its bright colors and textures. This storied hotel truly highlighted the styles and patterns of our new collection. From glittery pink walls to vibrant blue doors, the backdrop was perfect. We contrasted the Inn’s striking features with the natural textures and soft lighting at the nearby Avila beach to round-out our spring story.
The talent: Our beyond beautiful female models, Rachelle and Jessica, have both worked with Petunia Pickle Bottom in the past, so we already knew they’d be the perfect duo for Spring ’15. We also invited Rachelle’s husband and newborn, Ruby, to model as well. We loved that their family of three could all participate, lending true authenticity to the photography. It was our third time working with photography Rus Anson, whose work we just adore. Of course, our shoot would be impossible without the talent of make-up artist Bailee Nakaahiki, who joined our photo shoot team for the 2nd year in a row. Our models, photographers, and behind the scenes stylists worked so well together and the result is the breathtaking images you see on our website, catalog and social media throughout the season.
