This day was pure awesomeness… full of random shit happening all throughout the day of course….but none the less …it was awesome.
Haley was such a good sport…and she actually was enjoying watching how we worked and being a part of all of our randomness…I’m starting to realize most people love our gorilla style shooting…I find that it breaks down these walls we sometimes put up when shooting for “magazines” and doing “interviews”. We ALL have fun and we get to capture real, unfiltered moments.
us being creeps in Guitar center lol
Haley was in L.A. visiting from Arkansas when we did the shoot. She didn’t have her guitar with her…So I let her use Mary Jayne lol …which is my guitar. Early that day we realized that my guitar strings were shit so we tried to replace them ourselves. That’s when we realized that we kinda sucked at replacing guitar strings so we had to take a trip to the Guitar Center on Sunset Blvd to have them replaced professionally. That in itself was a random ass adventure lol.
Once we got the strings fixed we came back to The Crockpot Headquarters (which is my house) …I did her make up…and we went off into the streets looking for inspiration. We were all walking down the street looking for a place to shoot and we spotted this brown couch that had been thrown out on the sidewalk…and of course we decided to drag it in the middle of the street and shoot!!! Traffic and all… it was hilarious…and quite inspiring to all of us how quickly we made something out of nothing.
Haley did an acoustic version of Cyndi Lauper’s Time after Time. Juriel filmed it… and I just watched and smiled…. oh and looked out for traffic from time to time. It was a small little gang of us all outside …right on Beachwood…taking over the streets…having a blast in the middle of the day. It was fun, Haley sounded beautiful, and Mary Jayne didn’t sound too shabby herself. After we filmed the cover we went back into the house to do Haley’s 27 Questions interview!!! You guys have to make sure you go check those two videos out because they are also awesome!! lol
I’m enjoying this process for sure…. we may not have a blue print… but something beautiful happens every single time I do one of these shoots and interviews and I’m inspired to do more!!
Be sure to check us out on social media!!!
