Hey! It’s been a while, yes I know. It’s been super busy all around! Nice to be back. Lately it’s been super grey and gloomy in NYC. If the sun comes out at all, it’s only for part of the day and then it’s back to clouds. This super blah weather had me inspired to do shoot with as little black, navy and charcoal grey as possible — basically all I’ve been wearing this winter/fall. I wanted to brighten things up a bit.
Although I could have really shot this anywhere, I drove all the way downtown (I live waaayyyy uptown) because I love the back drop of a big mural and the retro diner on 10th avenue. I also love the holiday lights that are popping up outside of various restaurants and retail stores. There is nothing like the holidays in NYC for holiday-inspired pictures and nostalgia.
At first I was totally freaking out, but now I love that the boys are bigger and I can style them in small men’s clothing and they can still rock kids clothes. The coats are both from Zara, the denim is from H&M and a mix of shirts in their closet. The goal was to make the boys coordinate, but not match and make sure there was a small pop of color somewhere - hence Tyler’s hat and kicks. I tried to limit dark colors as much as possible.
You know I love sunglasses. I love Tyler’s because they can reflect skylines, or the city scape. Tristin’s are always a nice upgrade since clear frames give a little more style without being overbearing. As you may already know, Tyler is a bit more sporty that Tristin, so the Jordans and the chain fit on him with the knit hat - more than it would on Tristin.
What do you think of the shoot? Are you into wearing brighter colors in the winter?
