In late June, I decided to take a stroll around Fanueil Hall to do a little window shopping during my lunch break. It wasn't before I came across a window full of mannequins wearing the most creative sports apparel, that I realized I had just discovered the countries first women's boutique dedicated to Boston Sports, Lucy's League. Soon after this discovery, I decided to get in contact with VP Tom Emmons, in hopes that he would allow us to feature and promote Lucy's League in the Girlish Writings Grand Opening. Once we got to talking, we were able to come up with a game plan in order to go about and produce a photo shoot.
With Lucy's League, being our first commercial shoot as well as one of perhaps Boston's unique fashion landmarks, I decided to get in touch with professional art director, graphic designer, and owner of website Colourful Carla ,Carla Williamson-Britt, to guide us in the right direction. After I got Carla on board, I contacted my older sister, business partner of Seraphix Media, and Girlish writer: Kristina Gomez-Mayer to take the photos. Once we had a team consisting of producer, director, and photographer, I set out to look for models. With an Interest featuring girls who lived in the North Shore, Metro West, and South Shore of Boston, I finally decided to use Girlish Writers, Danielle Dimond and Justine Del Priore. In addition, I contacted ballet dancer, Emily Page. On a July summer morning, we all came together to coordinate a photo shoot with what Tom Emmons once referred to as "a place where the city of sports passion meets the world of women's sports fashion." With the help and generosity of Tom Emmons and his Lucy's League Team, the creativity of the Girlish Writers, and the guidance and direction of Carla Williamson-Britt, Girlish Writers was able to succeed in our first and hopefully not our last commercial photo shoot.
