ava x mckenzie

a new creative that i had the pleasure of styling with photographer mckenzie james. as of late i haven't been doing many creative shoots, mainly because i don't have as much time anymore. this shoot i had been thinking and planning for a long while. i wanted to do a shoot that didn't require wardrobe, where i would make most of the items needed.

i made the mesh wardrobe, which was originally a bright safety orange. i sculpted the shapes and then safety pinned them in place before spray painting it. i did the painting that was used as the backdrop. i think that took the longest because i had to figure out the technique to use to get that broad strokes of colour (large shoe brush).

the point of inspiration for the shapes were biko's solarwave studs, and the designer was kind enough to let me feature her jewelry in this shoot.

hair was sculpted by kirsten klontz. makeup by brittany sinclair. manicure (so subtle but oh so important) by ashley cho. model, ava bianca.

drink to that

sometimes shoots that i style don't end up being used for their intended purpose. that was the case for this series of cinemagraphs that was for a liquor company. an idea may look great on paper but in the end the client decides it's not the best fit. c'est la vie.

have a look at the stills below. to check them out as cinemagraphs head on over to my instagram page to see them in their beautiful subtle action @triciahall

the colours of winter

this was a creative that i styled while i was pregnant with my second. when i was pregnant with my first i had all this creative energy and did so many shoots that a lot of people didn't even know i had a child because there was no shortage of editorials being released around the same time i had my first and took a very short maternity leave (freelance life). this was not the case for my second pregnancy by any stretch; i had very little energy! i'm glad i was able to get this shoot done.

i'm thankful for the team that got to work with that day and to all the pr, brands and showrooms that allowed me to pull for this shoot, xx.
