Portrait Day

Portrait Day

Make UpThe Crew

If you follow us on Instagram (which you should, Tara at tstriano and me at mdmsacasa) or Twitter or on this blog, you know we’ve been working on a book for the past few months. In recent weeks, we wrapped up photography for the book, reviewed proofs, made edits to content, etc. etc. etc. Crossing the last T was definitely the most exhilarating moment of work on this project, but the most fun was our author portrait photo shoot.

Tara and I are always behind the camera (I try to sneak in here and there, but usually my head gets lopped off) and this was a once-in-a-blue-moon occurrence, and we loved it. I don’t know about Tara, but I’m now more than a little reluctant to be the behind-the-scenes chick.

Speaking of which, we look amazing in our author portrait, thanks to photographer Geraldine Pierson and makeup artist Lea Siegel. Those ladies took us from drab to dazzling and for that we thank them profusely.

Our book is due out in the fall, courtesy of our publisher, Quirk Books, but in the meantime, here are a few outtakes highlighting the shenanigans that went on on set!
