Erica McIntire has a fabulous imagination. Although she studied acting and writing, it’s the images she creates with iPhone apps on her Instagram account that show off her quirky cool eye and got me inspired to collaborate. I thought it would be fun to see what she would do with a fashion shoot; I photograph and style as usual and she “paints” on the final images. Erica was up for it so I borrowed some clothes from a few of my favorite designers and then Erica and I took over a friend’s house outside of LA for the day. Erica is gorgeous and I love her fearless attitude about her body so the images are not retouched. Above, Erica in a swimsuit by Tory Burch with heels by Aldo. More from our shoot below. There was no hair and make up on set, Erica managed that side of our story. Her version of these images, which I can’t wait to see, will be up on her Instagram next week one by one and then all of them will be posted here on the blog the following week.
