When You Work With Friends You Either Create Magic or Mayhem: Behind the Scenes of the Phi Casa FW2013 shoot

I tweeted a pic about shooting with the Phi Casa brand last week and I mentioned it in one of the FW trend posts. Anyhoo, seeing as though some of you gals have asked for pics I decided to share the behind the scenes stuff with you guys so long 🙂 As soon as I get the final images, I’ll post ’em.

This was such a fabulously fun day. Aneeqah’s friend has a few horses at the R.J Rixon stables in Phillippi so we decided to shoot there. Aneeqah was really feeling an equestrian theme and after a day of “working” (lots of talking, laughing and minimal planning, lol) her friend took us to the stables to check out the horses. Granted it was after 6pm and DARK, we managed to get a feel for the area (as much as one could have in the dark , I guess). After a week of sleepless nights over the planning of the first campaign shoot for Phi Casa, our shoot day arrived.

Check out the pics and let me know what you guys think. I’ll do a more in-depth post about the day once I have the final images but know this, I ended up with horse poop on my clothes and the first thing I did when I got home was jump in the shower!

Enjoy 🙂

This horse was seriously curious about what we were up to! He kept sticking his head over the fence, lol.

So pretty 🙂 Aneeqah and I had to kick up sand (behind Madaleen) in one of these shots. Naturally horse poop flew (that which was hidden beneath the sand).
