Interested in modeling for Lime Crime? Stay tuned for the Model Search announcement later in the month!
I wanted to share with you one of the happiest days of my life, which happened just this Monday. It was a ‘work day’, but what made it so special is I got to do what I love, while hanging out with people I love. Kristin, Sam, Steve, Mark and myself drove down to a Brooklyn neighborhood Red Hook to shoot a nautical-inspired look for our new website.
Abandoned street car – how cool is that?!
A few words about Steve: when I first saw his work on the New York Couture site in 2006, I was blown away. I said to myself: one day I will work with this guy because he holds true talent. I have worked with Steve on a bunch of shoots now – we’ve done many different looks in many different locations, but one thing remains the same: we always have fun and images always come out amazing! Steve is, and always will be, one of my favorite photographers to shoot with. Did you know he shot the image you see on the Lime Crime display?
Kristin & I – did I mention we shot by the water?!
Kristin and I met at a photoshoot shoot and quickly became friends. There are so many ground-breaking ideas nesting underneath that neon hair! I feel very privileged to work with Kristin; she is a truly world-class hair stylist who also happens to be one of the nicest people I’ve ever met. She was recently flown out to style hair for Katy Perry’s California Gurls video – oh boy, wait till you see it!!
Sam Fox of Wilhelmina Models
Samantha. I spotted her in Steve’s portfolio and immediately knew we had to work together. Her ethereal presence encompasses both, the innocence and intensity I look for in a model. Plus she is the sweetest girl in the world, can’t beat that! Sam is a true muse and you will be seeing a lot of her on the upcoming website. She is the girl on our current banner. —>

We wrapped up the day by treating everyone to deserts at Steve’s Authentic Keylime Pie: they have pies, a ‘swingle’ (frozen keylime pie on a stick, dipped in dark chocolate), and limonade. Hey, we’re called Lime Crime for a reason! ;)
