behind the scenes in bed stuy

for one day every month, a group of us gather for our homepage photo shoot. sometimes there's a loose theme in mind, sometimes we wing it; but it's always fun. often we utilize the lovely and talented members of our own beacon's family to style, photograph, and model. in february we were fortunate enough to collaborate with two young emerging artists living in brooklyn. photographed by our own sandra esther ciriello, our new friends elise peterson and armina mussa were the fresh faces of february at beacon's.


washington, dc transplants, elise and armina are now living in a sun drenched apartment in bed stuy, where we did our shoot.  their very different, but equally eclectic bedrooms are joined by french doors, which when opened create the perfect photo studio.


original art, vintage magazines, tapestries, records, found objects, not to mention lots of amazing clothes, line the walls of the girls' bedrooms.  both stylists, elise and armina are the first models to completely style their own looks.


for examples of their work, follow them on instagram, here and here. see elise's blog here.
