This look was shot right after Julia, Julio and myself finished up an editorial shoot at the local ice cream shop, Gunther’s. We casted this super cute dad and his two boys to sport some sunglasses while eating ice cream for a father’s day concept that will air soon on social.
Afterwards we rushed off to check out the annual Carmichael Cacti and Succulent show. I wasn’t sure what to expect but boy I was in for a treat. I saw some of the coolest plants everrrr. I wanted to purchase them so badly but these were only part of the competition. We did however buy plenty of other great cacti on the opposite side of the show.
They were even offering full grown waist high cacti + pots for 2/$35. What in the world?! They were practically giving them away.
I will share an embarrassing story from our outing at the end of this post, so keep scrolling at my detriment.
Ok, ok, ok here’s my embarrassing story. So I was playing stylistic/assistant during the ice cream and sunglasses photoshoot with the cute boys. I was running back and forth in and out of the shots fixing the glasses, hair and dripping ice cream. I went in a little too quickly to clean something up on the youngest boy and right as I squatted down my pants ripped in the inner hem. UGH, so embarrassed but I just kept working like it didn’t happen. Luckily, no one noticed until afterwards when I told Julia and Julio. Before you start telling me to go on a diet, I promise you these pants are made out of a very weird material, sort of like a cheap boat tarp?
If I get enough comments I’ll post an evidence photo of the rip. But for now, I’m keeping it under wraps.
Moral of the story: don’t try and squeeze in a personal fashion photoshoot prior to the shoot you’re suppose to working. Or just wear something more relaxed. Anyway, I’m just happy it wasn’t the butt that ripped. Toodles!
