scout & catalogue spring 2012 pt. 2

The Scout & Catalogue official lookbook is up; click here to view it. Exclamation points!!!

While Bre is off in Mexico and before she launches the full spring line, I thought I would share a few more images from Friday. I ended up with about 400, so yeah, there are quite a lot. I still can’t get over how beautiful Monika is and how beautiful her makeup was (blush to the max, always and forever). It's funny: the vibe of Bre’s work is generally so beachy and “bohemian,” but this shoot turned out so pretty & springlike. I, of course, adore that.

For this shoot—I say that as though I have shoots all the time—I used a mix of Fujipro 400H and 160S as well as Kodak Portra 160. The 160 shots are a bit peachier and milkier.





(The clutches in this pile are just calling my name.)

  1. Seriously she is like my dream babe. That pout! Amazing.

    My boyfriend just leant over and asked me what I was looking at and I was all 'what no! Its the photos! i like the photos!'

    I do like the photos as well! I have a hit and miss relationship with Porta. I think mine was well expired and it was like everything was in a snow storm. Sad times.

    More more more! xx

    1. She really is a dream babe! It's crazy because hair & makeup transformed her into a totally different person. And she could turn that pout on & off so easily. It was amazing.

  2. You & Geoff did such an awesome job with the photography! Also, the blush kills me. I WIIIIIISH it was something I could do, but I'm always so flushed anyway. I love how the combination of aesthetics is so clear (like you said, the fieldguided vibe on s&c items), you guys are just built for permanent spring.

    1. Thanks so much, that means a lot! I love the tons of blush look but I worry that I would just look like a kook who just found out what blush is.

  8. Bah, Anabela, all I want is to collaborate with you on a shoot one of these days. Film, flowers, blush pink, rhinestones...I want it all!!

    Also, I need to know what the situation is with the black constellations (?) top in the second to last photo. Is that just a big t-shirt with the sleeves rolled I am seeing? I love it!!

    1. Oh man, that would be AMAZING! We didn't have rhinestones but we did have gold glitter hearts... unfortunately they aren't the most photogenic.

      Yeah, I think that's what it is, and it's pretty great. All the clothes belong to Bre, and a good portion of them are thrift store finds.

  9. The photography is just wonderful Anabela! It's so lovely to see the mix of Bre's and your sensibilities (Anabela+Geoff) in these images. I think this may be your calling. Styling and photography. There are worse things to do for work. Am I right? LOL

  10. Anabela, you and Geoff did an amazing job on the photos. Love the double exposure ones shown on S & C's site. Looks like a calling worth pursuing! (Juli from Mjolk)

  11. Babelicious, all across the board. And 400 film shots?? Damn. I want to do my next shoot all film, I'm always too nervous too and that is dumb!

    1. Ahhh, nooo! That would have been so expensive. More than half were digital.

      Delete
    2. And PS - you should try it! I definitely needed the digital for backup since some of the shots ended up too grainy to use (not many, but some... although Bre wanted a bit of grain too)

      Delete
  12. ooo, lovely. i think blush-coloured roses are the perfect complement to bre's collection...and your shots are so fun! :)

    1. The roses were so perfect! They had tones of mauve and pink in them. Just lovely. I have a few on the mantle and they're really beyond dead right now but I can't bring myself to toss them.

    2. i know that feeling! i try to dry mine so i can keep them around longer, but roses are tough once the petals start dropping off.

  14. I totally want makeup lessons on how to look like that every day. You guys did such a good job! The double exposures in the lookbook are so good!

    I think I've narrowed down my wants to the indigo scarf and glitter clutch, but man, it's all sooo good.

    1. Thanks, Hollie! It's so great. I just bought 5 rolls, but I wish I could afford to buy FIFTY. I'd always thought I preferred the cool tones of Fuji to Kodak, so it's always nice to be surprised like that.
