Behind the Scenes of our 2016 Bikini Shoot
Hello beautiful beach babes! Wow. Another year has flown by. And with it, another collection launch. I cannot comment enough on how grateful I am for all of you. I am so stoked to be able to fulfill the need for stylish, sporty bikinis that stay on, and I wouldn’t be able to do it without all of you digging the suits that we make.
Today, I want to share a bit of what goes on behind the scenes at Sensi Bikinis in order to make our newest collections come to life! It takes a lot of work to get from concept to super epic product. However, we try to infuse good energy into everything we do and that means making our work as fun and inspiring as possible. One of the most enjoyable parts of bringing the collection together is photographing the pieces after all the hard work of designing and producing samples is behind us. Photos of the suits help tell the story behind the brand, give our customers a look at the different uses of the pieces and most importantly, show how the items fit.
Our photoshoots typically happen in two parts. The first is our studio shoot; pieces are shot on white backdrop with our women showing the fit of the front and the back. This year we worked with my good friend, Jennifer Jones and utilized three local models to show a variety of body types (I understand how hard it is to shop online!).
For our lifestyle shoot, we traveled to the far east coast of Canada to Magdalen island. The travel to our location was a prolonged one. The team flew into Montreal, drove 14 hours to the coast, boarded a ferry for five hours across the ocean and finally landed on Magdalen Island. The island, known for its red cliffs, colorful houses and white sand beaches, served as the perfect backdrop for our 2016 collection. We wanted a bohemian vibe with strong, athletic shots and an air of exploration. The island also has a strong kiteboarding scene and we were able to session a ton while we were there!
Yes, the island was often pretty chilly. Our model was a super-trooper and did what she needed to get the shot.
Goofing around...who says work can't be fun?
We hope these shots inspire you to try something new, step outside of your comfort zone and get after life. You’ve got this. Expand, grow, live, love, join the adventure.
