KuDeTa Spring LookBook Shoot {CT Fashion Photography}

A few weeks ago, I was contacted by KuDeTa boutique in Boston to shoot their Spring Look-book Collection.  They planned to have 5 fabulous fashion bloggers from the Boston area modeling their styles for them - and I had the pleasure of meeting them all last weekend!  Check out the images from our Spring line fashion shoot ! **Make sure to scroll all the way down!  Behind the scenes video footage is waiting for you at the bottom of this post!!**

The bloggers all visited the boutique a week prior to the shoot for a fitting and outfit selection with owner Heather O'Connell, and assistant Kathleen Grey.

Come Saturday the 5th, we all met at the boutique and introduced ourselves and dove right into shooting!  We started off with Natalie of the Chic Boston Mama blog and her adorable daughter.  We took a quick detour into a local cupcake shop- Treat Cupcake Bar- for some sweet snacks and mama/daughter bonding.

Natalie was wearing one of KuDeTa's fun and flirty combos, the Woven Vest and Dress by Moon River!  This outfit is seriously the PERFECT Spring ensemble and Natalie rocked it like a superstar.  Oh yes- and check out those stunner shades designed by Quay Australia, also found at the KuDeTa boutique!

Once we were done with Natalie's shoot, we grabbed the beautiful Alisa of Cultura Giusta blog and ran across the parking lot to take advantage of the gorgeous lake.  It went hand-in-hand with the style of her super-cute Malia romper by Lovers and Friends and layered necklace by TRUST jewelry company!  Little fact: it was FREEZING during our shoot. Alisa rocked the cold weather like a pro!!

When Alisa retreated back to the boutique to warm up, Michelle of Rosemary & Lace joined me on the streets.  We even found a gorgeous furniture and decor spot that accented that bright orange Nostalgia dress by Lovers and Friends and the super cute metal clutch by Z&L Europe.

Michelle's gorgeous layered deco necklace also by Z&L Europe made the perfect accessory to her dress.  Fun fact:  I took some of the outdoor shots while laying on top of Michelle's car!  Woot!

Our next blogger is Elissa, of the Style Wire blog!  She rocked the cutest dress ever, seriously!!  This is the Miss Lilly Cross Front dress by Mink Pink! How totally fun and perfect for a day on the town!

We wrapped up our shoot with the gorgeous southern belle, Kathryn of the Mrs. On the Move blog.  She wore KuDeTa's Gentle Fawn floral tunic, their Dittos brand denim jeans which look amazing on her, and finished it off with a cozy wrap by Eis, a luxury-lounge contemporary women's clothing line.

When In Doubt, Wear Red

I seriously had the BEST time last week working with Michelle, the beauty and brains behind the fashion blog, Rosemary & Lace.  The fact that we literally JUST met that evening didn't even phase us.  Within minutes, I felt like we were besties who just finished an afternoon rendezvous of coffee and muffins and decided to end our soirée with an evening fashion shoot.  For real!  I can't wait to do it again!  In the mean time, check out this stunning outfit.  That skirt is to DIE for!!  The fact that Michelle paired it with those boots is genius!  There is seriously NO need to put your spring/summer skirts and dresses away.  You can always 'seasonalize' them and wear ALL YEAR ROUND!  Yes, I made up that word seasonalize.  No judging. :)  Go check out Rosemary & Lace to find out where and how you can get your own ;)

If you're curious, we did this entire shoot within ONE block of Blue Back Square in West Hartford Connecticut!  I could spend an entire day just on that one block!  Did I mention we were steps from the Cheesecake factory?  YUM!!
