An Intimate NYC Photoshoot

“I’m headed to New York City next week to meet up with three women I’ve never met in person for a lingerie photoshoot.”

Not necessarily the best thing to say to your mom when you inform her you’re packing your bags for a flight to the east coast. But hey, it was the truth.

 Not even the rainy New York weather could dampen our spirits. We were so ready to get our hands on the crystalette samples!

 In the end, you see all the pretty photos and beautiful finalized products. But before any of that happens, months and months of planning and designing product samples happens behind these doors.

Our taxi driver told us traffic would be horrible, so we told him we were going to put good flowing energy into the universe (cue his enormous eye roll). He looked at his GPS and said…

“Well ladies, looks like it’s your lucky day.”

 Visual inspiration around every corner! We couldn’t help but notice all the love that Brooklyn was giving us. Seriously, how cute is this tiny little sliver of the city?

 Andrea booked us blowouts at Dry Bar - and let me tell you, it was not only needed and appreciated, but a new habit that I intend to continue anytime I travel.

 Before blowout feeling - wet dogs.

 After blowout feeling - Hallelujah. (Blair was really feeling it lolol)

We were overly proud tourists

“oOo, look at this pic I took! Oh, and this one!”

 Yoshi was just as ready as we were to start snapping pics! Thankfully, the amazing @thechampagnediet lended us her apartment to use as the backdrop for our the shoot!

 Photos don’t do this beauty justice. The fact that this bralette has a pocket for crystals makes it 10x more gorgeous.

Elesha was in awe after she saw herself in the crystalette…

“I can’t believe that’s me in that picture!”

After conquering a photoshoot with three days of rain and uninvited construction at our AirBnb…

“Alright universe, what else you got for us?“

Me at every street corner…

“Hold on quick, I have to go take a pic of that building.”

 Andrea brought me onto the Spiritually Intimate team last year, and I couldn’t be more proud to stand beside her and Blair on the journey!

 Blair is the brains behind the creative madness. Her attention to detail is unreal, and the faces she (accidentally) makes in candid photos are too lololol.

 I don’t know this man, but after I took this photo at LGA airport I referred to him as “Charlie” - because let’s be honest, the Spiritually Intimate team is a team of angels ;)
