Betty shoots New Faces: Wednesday

Posted on August 31, 2015

Wednesday wearing Penny Sage. All Photos/Betty Scott Molloy. I don’t know if any of you know Betty Scott Molloy, but she is a sweet, talented photographer based in Auckland who is from today onwards, contributing to this little blog of mine. ‘Betty Shoots New Faces’ is going to be a regular segment (I hope) on katherineisawesome.com and it’s pretty self-explanatory – Betty shoots new face models she likes, and I post the results. It’s a pretty sweet deal for me, especially considering I have become increasingly time and motivation poor when it comes to creating content for this blog, so I’m pretty grateful and lucky to have Betty on board! First up, Betty shoots Wednesday from 62 Models. Results below.

Blue Jean Babies

Posted on June 10, 2015

All Photos/James K Lowe.  James and I paired up to create these images for the winter issue of Remix magazine, which is out on shelves tomorrow. This shoot is a bit different for us with the darker background and all, but I’m liking it. We should branch out more often. Anyway, not much more to say than that, see the rest of the editorial below – shoot credits are at the end of the post.

Winter dressing: Indoors edition

Posted on April 14, 2015

Saskia (62 Models). Photos/James K Lowe, Instax/Me.  Like a month ago I wrote this post about how Farmers had given me this challenge to incorporate clothing product from their department store, into my wardrobe. I put together a bunch of outfits using their stuff and mine – outfits I would genuinely wear outdoors, out of the house, IRL. This is the second half of that post, where I put together outfits I would genuinely wear inside the house, lounging around on an Autumn afternoon type thing. If you read the last post, you may remember me talking about how I was obsessed with Ambra‘s line of what I think are training bras. Whatever they are, they are dope and I swear to you now I wear some kind of Ambra…

Winter dressing

Posted on March 6, 2015

Saskia at 62 Models. Photos/James K Lowe.  I was recently approached by Farmers to see if I could find new winter product within their stores that I would incorporate into my wardrobe. I’m not going to lie, when I first heard Farmers I was skeptical – mostly because I am pretty fussy about clothes and I will be the first to admit that I can be kind of a snob when it comes to brands (which is ridiculous because it is rarely, if ever, that I can afford to purchase designer gears), but it is not every day that I am presented with a challenge like this, and I think it’s an interesting project. So, I went into my local branch, the Newmarket store. I first…

WE SHOT SOME OF THE COMMONERS S/S 2014-15 COLLECTION

Renee (Clyne) lounging in my favourite piece from the Commoners SS/14-15 collection – the ‘half sleeve tee’. All Photos/James K Lowe for Remix. 

James and I got asked to do a little shoot for the latest issue of Remix magazine (which is out today) in the same vein as the Penny Sage one we did in the last issue – use some of our favourite pieces from a New Zealand brand that we liked, and photograph it however we want.

We chose to use pieces from Commoners - a brand made of up of, essentially, boutique basics. They create classic pieces – beautiful, worn-in feeling tees, functional and soft knitwear, crinkly linen shirts, shorts that tie at the waist – all in lovely and neutral colour palates and in fabrics that are comfortable, natural and made to touch.

It was interesting shooting a basics brand, because the collection isn’t exactly ‘flashy’ or super ‘editorial’, we kept everything simple and pared back. We used one of our favourite girls, Renee (Clyne) and had the wonderful Paige Best on hair (brief: ‘I just woke up’) and make-up (brief: natural, flushed, freckles were Paige’s genius). Results below:

The Uniform feat. Renee

Reneé (Clyne). All Photos/James K Lowe.

The first time we took pictures of Reneé was back in early March, 2013. That was actually the first time Reneé had had her picture taken at all (in a modelling capacity, obviously), that’s how new she was. A year and a half later it’s crazy to see how far she’s come. At NZFW just gone, she booked 16 shows – not bad at all.  So anyway, it seemed fitting we include her as part of this series of some of our favourite girls in Levi’s 501s, a tee (best plain off white tee comes from AS Colour), and Vans.

We went to this little outdoor gym type area in Cornwall Park. It was muddy and kind of cold and the jeans were a couple sizes too big, but you know, Reneé worked it. She even went on the monkey bars for us. It’s actually not surprising because she’s one of the easiest models I’ve ever dealt with. I remember back for that dungaree shoot I was worried she would be awkward and shy because it was her first shoot and there were a bunch of other models she didn’t know, but she is so friendly and personable that I would say she was the chattiest there. Also, she does the whole ‘skater boy’ look well. It’s a hard look to pull off but I think it suits her. Check her out:
