Hi All, so I’ve been keeping this a bit under wraps, but I did a fashion spread for a national magazine a while ago, Six7*8th, and it just hit the stands! It’s a girl’s magazine, specifically aimed at girls grade, yes, you guessed it, 6, 7, and 8th. This magazine is a super cute junior high life style magazine and can be picked up at your local Safeway or Barnes and Noble. I heart Barnes and Noble.
I’ve known for a while that this should be hitting the newstands for July/August, and that Abigail Breslin would be on the cover. What I didn’t know was that Claire’s Accessories would be running a feature for the magazine, offering a free issue, AND showcasing my spread. Follow this link and just try to guess how psyched I was to see this. Quick tip though, wondering how to turn the pages and actually see the preview? Well, so was I. Once you see talented lil Abigail’s face scroll your mouse over to the top right corner. This will peel the page down. Once you click on it, it will actually turn the page. This is when, BAM, you see my pics and name full force.
I had such a great time shooting this spread. The kids were awesome to work with, Angie, the publisher, is beyond great, and the day went unbelievably smooth. Having this be my first spread made for a bit of nervousness on my part, but I think the final results are great. In addition, if you actually pick up the magazine you’ll get to see me on page five taking some shots. Sneaky Angie grabbed my second camera and began taking some candids. Think she would take a gig as my second shooter? Ha, seriously, she took some keepers!
Also, for any of you that have read my bio, you might have read that I once craved to be a writer. To have my name in print and for sale, well, it was always my dream. This is a round about way, but I think I still got there. In any case, I’ve picked up a subscription for my super cute sister, just entering junior high, and if you know any girls in the same age range please do the same.
I know I missed blogging on Monday, but in my defense I was trying to figure out how to get the pages of the magazine scanned. I finally gave up and stole them from Claire’s website.
