A few weekends ago, my two photographer friends Zoë of Zoë Burchard Studios and Brie of Brie Blake Photography got together with an idea Zoë had: making the woman in the song “Camarillo Brillo” by Frank Zappa come to life! We decided to go to Portland and rent out an AirBnB. We had help from a local hair and makeup artist who goes by @thepinkversion on Instagram, got to pose with two snakes from @glamorsnakes on Instagram, and borrowed woven jewelry from Mia’s Handwovens from the Seattle area.
Zoë, Brie, and I got up at 3:30 in the morning for a 4 am start on hair and makeup for me. They transformed the AirBnb to a more Bohemian-style setup and snuck in a nap. We had two outfits as well! We sourced the black dress from @shoprachelzoe, a pair of red Saint Laurent pumps with red soles, a little black veil cape from @halston_heritage, red scale-like leather pants from @lacademie_, and of course a box of doughnuts from Voodoo Doughnuts. Zoë took the photos and Brie assisted. So without further ado, here are some of my favorites from the shoot!
