Holy hotness batman. I mean….there isn’t anything really to say about these photos other than…HOT DAMN!
I’m so proud of Ashley and so happy to be a part of these incredible photos. The amazing Terry Richardson shot Mz Sky in his NYC studio during fashion week last month. We have been patiently waiting for final images and they DID NOT disappoint!
My styling strategy is always simple when it comes to shooting Ashley. I always want to keep it clean and chic to allow Ashley’s famous curves do the talking. I knew I wanted to do a swim look because that is just Ashley to me. She IS the ultimate bikini body. We used the most perfect string bikini by my fav swimwear brand, Minimale Animale, and then paired it with a pair of bad-ass Rachel Zoe booties that are Ashley’s own.
The next look, a full-body jumpsuit by Reformation, is something that I saw and immediately knew that if Ashley tried it on….all competition would be slayed. I have a huge love affair for The Reformation and kind of want every single thing in the store. I always style with brands that I actually wear. It just feels more real. Clothes are like friends, you have to hang out together and see if you vibe.
Shooting in Miami is always a beautiful adventure. The weather has been so unpredictable lately. It’s been really windy so it’s chilly but then the sun feels really warm, so my wardrobe choices have been really schizophrenic. (Note: I’m in a coat, boots and tights like 3 posts down.) We shot these photos at sunrise while a storm was developing on the coast. It was so pretty!! And freaking windy. Chilly windy = not fun. It’s Ultra/Winter Music Conference starting this weekend, so I really wanted to start my transition into bikinis as clothing routine. Are any readers coming to Miami during the next two weeks?
I’m getting really excited. My friend Alyssa from MarieClaire.com is staying with me this weekend and I’ll be dressing Ashley Sky while she is in town, so it should be a really fun couple of weeks. David is traveling to NYC for the next two months, so I am going to be presenting photos on CF a little differently in the upcoming weeks. I haven’t figured it out quite yet….it’s going to be….interesting. Any photographers in Miami looking to collaborate, please reach out to Amanda@CaptureFashion.com.
Back to the post….I have swimwear on the brain hardcore. Specifically, all things Australian. I’m going to have to make a dedicated post to Australian brands for spring. It’s super necessary. The two dresses in this post are by Bless’ed Are the Meek, one my favorite Aussie lines, although I say it wrong constantly. I say “blessed we are meek” or “blessed and meek ones” it’s so embarassing. I am going to have to get it right because I am obsessed with this line and I want everything. #everysinglething

It is President’s Day and everything.
I didn’t plan to go all patriotic, I actually was just going for a Western vibe in this series. But then we found flags. Awesome flags waving in the wind at sunset in front of a huge open field. I mean, duh.
I’ve been drawn to Western-vibey pieces all fall. Ever since I got those Isabel Marant inspired Zara boots on super sale, I’m like, take me to the desert. I can barely contain my excitement to just go full-on cowgirl this spring. Is anyone with me?

Starting to get back some of the work I did with Ashley Sky during NYFW. I’m so excited! I love getting photos back and seeing the final product. The actual photo shoot is my favorite part, but the photos I can enjoy forever. These are so pretty. Ashley is magical in front of a camera and dressing her is basically playing Barbie. Hm. I wonder how Ashley’s proportions compare to Barbie. I bet it’s damn close. I’m going to look into this….keep you posted.
coat, Chaser Brand. t-shirt and tights, Ashley’s own.
Here goes the final pics for my most recent photo shoot at Freehand in Miami. I feel in love with this spot after spending a Saturday afternoon poolside eating tacos with David and our friend Harry Beee. Freehand is in a great location and is such a fresh spot for Miami. I’m living for the pool area and David is kind of obsessed with the bar at The Broken Shaker, which is located inside Freehand.
We had a lovely morning shooting at this beautiful Miami hideaway. Thank-you, Freehand!

All my girl Deborah St. Pierre did was a bikini photo shoot. Bam! Yup, Debbie entered a contest on Crackberry.com to win a new Blackberry 10, and asked me to help her execute the photo shoot.
