april catalog diary: day one, shooting with sasha

last week i gave you the low-down on hair and makeup and the lead-up to shooting, and now it’s time for the action to begin! here’s a behind the scenes look at shooting with sasha pivovarova.

being able to watch a world class model in action was such an awesome experience.  sasha blew me away- she was so sweet and soft spoken in person, and had a very graceful, swanlike presence on set.  her ability to strike completely unnatural poses and make them seem effortlessly natural is incredible.

in between shots hair and makeup were touched up.




guy reviewing the shots – he’s so good, he could probably take one photo for each outfit and be done, but he seemed to have an idea in his head of what he wanted each shot to look like and wouldn’t stop until it was perfect.


sasha was a natural with the animals – very playful and sweet.



we were all crazy about this outfit – the combination of the long-in-the-back raglan tee and mesh ombre skirt is to die for! i loved that she just wore socks with this look too, giving it a very relaxed loungy feel.



someone on set (i cant remember who) had the idea of using one of the belts in the shoot instead of a leash :)



stylists at work.


i love this photo :)


the light outside started to fade as we neared the end of our allotted shooting time.


sasha loved this necklace – and we all loved this outfit, our favorite of the day!



and that’s a wrap on day one! stay tuned for day two :)


  1. Just when i thought the narrative was done, this post comes along. Love the behind the scene shots. Looks like a fun day of work. the sheer skirt and crochet top are such lovely pieces.

  2. She is just so beautiful – perfect for the bohemian styling of this shoot which has stollen my heart, and will never give it back. Always inspiring FP!

  3. This is pretty cool and love the behind the scene… Now I am wondering what is the name of the photographer I didnt see any credits for him or maybe I just didn’t notice.

  4. i’m absolutely in love with the strappy, brown sandals that go up her calves. (featured in the picture with her hand on her hat and the bird on her forearm.) i can’t seem to find them online with free people. can you please share where these shoes are from?

  5. I just recieved my Romana fest sandal in after waiting on them for about 3 months. They are not what they are described to be. The descritption says they are suede but they are not. They are cheap leather. I am very disappointed
