Behind the Scenes : This Week’s Website Photoshoot

Have you ever been looking at our website and wonder how we do our shoots and what goes on?

Well here’s your inside look!!! Last night we had a photo shoot for our online stores! If you don’t know yet we have www.sophieandtrey.com and www.fourthandocean.com! Check out the links if you haven’t there is some amazing and fabulous stuff!! It’s all totally different items then what we carry in the store. Same type of styles and brands but exclusively available only through the web!

There’s like a week of preparing Ryan does for organizing the clothes and what pieces will be featured on the websites. Since we get boxes daily of new stuff, she goes through and puts aside what will be in that upcoming shoot. We do shoots, for the most part, every two weeks 😉 Sometimes it gets pushed back if we have holidays or events going on. We start around 6 or 6:30 and usually takes about about 2 hours to shoot everything. Michelle Stromberg Photography takes our pictures and we shoot at their location which is right next to the OLD 4th & Ocean spot, at 142 W. Lakeview Avenue, Suite #1050, Lake Mary, FL 32746. Michelle is amazing! She is the Queen at what she does! She makes everything so easy, fun and comfortable! CHECK HER OUT!! Here’s some photos she took of our own Kristin, from her wedding to her maternity pictures! STUNNING!

Email Michelle or call 407-474-7315 now for an appt!

As far as the models go, they are our own staff! We like to keep it real! Especially since our photos aren’t edited and re-touched! Ha ha ha! Right now the models are Rachel (the blonde), Savannah (the brunette) and myself, Dani (black hair).

Me (Dani)

Our photo shoots are pretty much like a girls night with a ton of outfit changes. We have fun! We chat about our personal lives, the stores, plan events and of course the clothes. We are always picking out what we want to buy and planning outfits 😉

An average shoot will go as follows. We all pretty much arrive and make sure our make up is good for the lighting, meaning we have smoky eyes and natural lips. Ryan is usually steaming the clothes, Michelle is setting up lighting and us models are changing into our first outfits. It’s pretty much an open room and there’s no room for modesty. We’re all girls. So clothes go flying and then it’s accessorizing time. On a great shoot there’s always one person shooting and taking pictures while the others are changing and prepping for their turn. Sometimes outfit look fierce and sometimes they fail! Ha ha ha. Yes even on us sometimes things don’t fit right or look good but that’s why there’s 3 of us and eventually one person can work it! It’s a really good time messing around and coming up with new poses. Some poses look like we actually know what we’re doing and some just should have us cropped out of the frame. Ha ha ha. At S&T we definitely know how to have a good time. There’s a lot of laughing that goes on for sure! Here’s some photos I took from last night’s shoot!

This is our organized disaster

Hats & Headbands

Love! At Sophie & Trey

Birthday fun is over and I had the best one yet! 28 is going to be great! So onto the next event and for me that’s Thanksgiving!!! I am off to Ohio again on Tuesday till Friday! Super excited to be going back. Guess his parents approve! Ha ha ha. So with that comes even colder weather than when I was there before. Definitely going to need a hat!

How Glamorous!! At Sophie & Trey

Headbands, hats, and anything else you can wear in your hair or on your head are being craved this season!! Wore by all the celebrities they are the perfect thing to add to any outfit plus stay warm and keep the rays from hitting your face.

Fabulous for some high waisted, flare pants! At Sophie & Trey

We have so many options at the store! If you were at the Fashion Show last week at least half our looks were finished off with some sort of hair accessory!!! Treat headbands & hats the same you would a pair of shoes. They can be the focal point and steal the show or they can tone down and just be an accessory to complete the look! Have fun with them! It’s always awesome to change up your look and do something different!! Here’s some of what’s available in the stores and looks off the runway!!
