When I was asked to do the Nais Lingerie photo shoot, I had no idea I would have so much fun. I really can’t stand doing lingerie and swimwear shoots, since I’m a little self-conscious about my body proportions. I was sure I would spend the whole shoot trying to stay covered up and the whole night before starving. ( I didn’t want my tummy to be puffy in front of the camera.)
But much to my surprise, I had a blast of a time on set. Designer Anais Bouchard was so wonderful to work with. She really made me feel at home - no fuss, just relaxed. Plus, her French accent was to die for. It’s been a while since I’ve been to Paris (my second favorite city). So I just loved hearing her speak. It really took my mind off of my figure.
For those of you unfamiliar with the brand, Nais Lingerie is a unique line of French-urban lingerie and lounge wear. The clothes are super colorful, extremely comfortable, playful and sexy all at the same time. That might sound like a ridiculous mix of adjectives. But trust me, this line can fit into almost any urban girls dresser drawers. (You know, the one where we put all of our unmentionables.)
This shoot really played into each element of Nais. In it, I was the traditional pin-up girl in a modern world. I modeled with another young lady who played my best friend. Together, we laughed, joked, and played with water guns. It was almost as if we were kids again. How much more fun can you have on a shoot?!
