our latest photo shoot

when you start a business, there are a lot of very un-glamorous things you can expect to do.
however, there are times when we look around and think, so THIS is why we are doing all of this!  i typically have this feeling when we go up to weston, ct to shoot at ryan scherb's home studio.  
a few weeks ago we spent the day at ryan's shooting our latest and newest #dsgoods.  there is nothing more gratifying than seeing our new styles and fabrics being worn for the first time: it is the culmination of many months of design and fittings, fabric and color sourcing, and hard work.  
below are some shots i took from behind the scenes while at the shoot.  our model was the beautiful and lovely emma ostilly, salon shahin provided hair and makeup, my mom and i styled the shoot, ryan was the photographer of course, and his trusted assistant norman was on hand helping with just about everything and also providing some laughs throughout the day.  
the creative energy is always high at ryan's house, likely because of the serene and beautiful setting of his farm/ranch style home in weston.  the delicious nespresso coffee and good play list in the background might also help as well!  whatever it may be...the shoot got me so excited for our new things.
special note: we are going to start pre-selling our new styles in the next coming weeks.  be sure to sign up for our newsletter to be the first to know when they are on our site.
