behind the scenes : hamtramck styled shoot / by Shelby Robinson

Last December, I was able to get together with a few amazing women to bring a little Korean-inspired shoot to life. 

Kate and I went to college together and then crossed paths in Korea in 2015, and since then we've been dying to collaborate on a project. Kate now lives in San Fransisco doing various (amazing) prop and fashion styling projects, but was back in Michigan for the holidays. So we thought it'd be a perfect time to get something fun in the works. And we thought: why not something we both experienced and love so well?

We swapped photos and ideas for the few weeks leading up to the shoot. I reached out to the sweetest human, Sophia, to see if she'd be down to model. Both Kate and Christiana brought a bunch of goodies home with them from California (including outfits / props / accessories Kate brought home from in Asia) and we shot in her older brother's home. His place is DREAMY. The most gorgeous art, trinkets and quirky objects from around the globe were sprinkled throughout the space. He also helped us make kimchi toast with bread that he had baked fresh that day. Ahhh. 

I can't share the images with y'all quite yet as we're trying to send them off to a few publications, BUT you'll be the first to see em when I can. 

S/O to the awesome humans that made this day so so fun.
