A party in a picture! That is what the spirit of Kitten Whiskers is all about. The term "kitten whiskers" actually refers to a paint color, one of the ones us gals picked out for our custom set by the amazing Ashley Norton. We had such fun picking and naming colors that name assigned to a beautiful purple-gray became the tagline for the whole project!
I had the honor of working with playful and professional talent from Generation, grooming & makeup by Brit Cochran, and the deal was sealed by the magical mary poppins-styling-goodness that came out of Sarah Conroy's clothing-stylist-suitcase for the shoot. The setting for the story was ROOT Brooklyn, and as always we throughly enjoyed hanging with the cool cats on their staff. Plus they have seltzer. And cappuccinos!
Now, get this: Sarah and Ashley made half our goodies ON THE SPOT: pom-poms, custom flags, storybook fishing poles, fans and all the other trimmings of a fairy tale. The whole set is hand-made by Ashley, hand-painted and totally modular! She art-directed each piece into place between shots, changing it in new and clever ways as the day went on. The genius of this team cannot be overstated!
Also, I must extend a special thanks to Mike Llano, my assistant, who was totally key to the operation of this project.
I was truly impressed, totally honored, and am now SUPER STOKED to share the delightful pages of Kitten Whiskers.
