A few weeks ago I was given the opportunity to style and shoot, Nashville pop musician, Mackenzie Elliott. During our creative meeting we storyboarded the perfect series of shots to show the world what her music is really made of; in a few words: girl power, pink and pure joy.
For the first chapter of the story we wanted to have a retro vibe to capitalize on Mackenzie’s love of fifties-inspired fashion. After doing some research, we found out where we could find a) the exact old school diner feel we were hoping for and b) some of the best milkshakes in town: Elliston Place Soda Shop.
The old-school neon sign out front signaled our arrival. A bell-tone greeted us as we pushed open the front door; light to poured in over the red leather benches of the booths and colorful tiled floor though the big front windows of the storefront. The jukebox in the back beckoned us to come choose a song, but first we had to choose a milkshake. After much debate, we went with strawberry and our sweet waitress promised she would return within a few minutes. Before we even had time to plan the first shots, she was back with the most perfect pink milkshake we had ever seen (served in a glass and topped with whipped cream). Y U M.
Really excited to share the photos from the shoot! They turned out beautifully.
Speak to you soon!
