Things are busy here at the Waxing Poetic offices this week! We spent Monday on the set of our photo shoot at the offices here in Los Olivos, as well as with the WP ring-leader, Patti Pagliei. The focus of our photo shoot was to capture the story of Patti and the company. Thanks to the skilled eyes of Nancy Neil – professional photographer and friend from Santa Barbara (check out her fantastic blog here: http://nancyneil.tumblr.com/0) – behind the camera’s lens, she was successful in capturing much more than just pretty faces and fun jewelry.
Among the shoot’s subjects photographed by Nancy, were the 12 fabulous females who make up the Waxing Poetic Design & Management Team. Two of which are our special friends, model Tamsyn Firestone Walker, and singer-songwriter Haddon Cord. These two girls are naturally beautiful, sweet, and full of positive-energy, which is why they both have received the title of being our Waxing Poetic Muses. (We were able to sneak a shot of Patti and our Muses behind the talented Nancy Neil!)
The hair and makeup artist Renee Loiz enhanced and transformed all of us with her bold styling skills. Patti was the first to be photographed in our retail boutique adorned with an array of favorites from her personal Waxing Poetic collection. Patti stepped out in the cutest Jean-Michael Cazabat sandals and wedges, and was dressed in perfectly fitting, timeless pieces selected especially for her by fashion designer, Heidi Merrick (both of which are also represented by Bradbury-Lewis PR team in NYC, like us). We were fortunate that Santa Ynez Valley resident and sculptor Suzi Trubitz opened her studio doors to us, so we could shoot against the backdrop of her amazing artwork (So inspiring!

All in all, our photo shoot was a great success! We are all very eager to see what Nancy captured. Until then, we have some “Behind the Scenes” photo-ops taken by some of our WP Gals to tide us over!
