Last month I had the pleasure of traveling with stylist Molly Hurd and photographer George Barberis to Joshua Tree where we were planning a gorgeous test shoot. Molly and George had been wanting to work together for a long time and finally, the stars aligned. Normally, I don’t travel on shoots—though I wish I did more often. I was happy to leave my office and Seattle’s record-breaking “snowmageddon” for a warmer climate.
With the mood boards completed, shot lists outlined and spring wardrobes packed, we headed south to Palm Springs. We arrived in the desert city under cloudy skies and light sprinkles. Given the northwest winter chill we’d left behind, Palm Springs’ 60 degrees and a light mist seemed balmy.
