Special Edition: Album Photo Shoot Part 1

Over the past few months the duo my husband and I have, The Asking, have been hard at work on a new album. It’s been difficult to juggle both the album and The House Blend so I’ve had to post less. That’s frustrating for me because I love working on this blog and creating cool content! But I did have the chance to curate this beautiful photoshoot with my fabulous photographer, Amie Akers, for the album jacket. It’s always a blast working with Amie because we collaborate so well together!

The album is called Call the Ships Home and there are a ton of water themes throughout the songs. So we wanted to include that in the photos but needed to avoid the clichés. We settled on a 60’s/70’s glam theme that contrasted nicely with the beach and the pier. Thankfully, we had the perfect stormy weather that created the gloom with sunlight peaking through. For the beach I went with the boho meets glam vibes. The metallic thread in my blouse/skirt combo and the gold star earrings helped elevate the look to undone glamor.

Check back next week for part 2 featuring an awesome vintage dress! If you’re interested in more about our duo, The Asking, you can check out our site or our Facebook and Instagram.
