She wanted to do a very different product shoot, and show her ribbon with like colored objects. I loved the concept, it reminded of some similar flat lay stories by one of favorite New York prop stylists, Randi Brookman Harris. Referencing her shots and also using the names of each collection for inspiration I began to create a prop list for each color story. For rouge, Janelle thought about playing on the name of the collection and styling with makeup. I loved that idea and I brought cheap eye shadow and lipstick for this scene. This was my first time styling with makeup, I used a knife to break up the rouge powder so it read clearly as makeup in camera. For the lipstick, I bought two of the same color. One I used to make the zig zag on that light pink paper background, and the other, clean, untouched, lipstick I used in the photo.  I added in taffy, pink gummy bears, a petite raspberry tart, my own vintage pink perfume bottle, and a Mrs. Box featuring Janelle’s mom’s ruby ring.kellyoshiro.com | Photo: Sposto Photo for Tono and Co | Product Prop Stylist Los Angeles

The golden collection was one of my favorite looks. I found adorable striped yellow and white candy which went perfectly with sliced meyer lemons and individual narcissus buds. I made a toss cone out of some sparkly vinyl paper and Janelle found this pretty confetti which we mixed with dried acacia sprigs. Probably my favorite detail was my petite yellow flower plate with honeycomb and the tiniest brass spoon.kellyoshiro.com | Photo: Sposto Photo for Tono and Co | Product Prop Stylist Los Angeles kellyoshiro.com | Photo: Sposto Photo for Tono and Co | Product Prop Stylist Los Angeles kellyoshiro.com | Photo: Sposto Photo for Tono and Co | Product Prop Stylist Los Angeles

The forest collection was probably the easiest to pull objects for since there are so many great green things. The final mix included cherimoya, bok choy, kale, lime, mint, sword fern, maidenhair fern, monstera, snap peas, and water cabbage. In the center, I placed a loose ribbon braid that trailed throughout the forest of green things.kellyoshiro.com | Photo: Sposto Photo for Tono and Co | Product Prop Stylist Los Angeles kellyoshiro.com | Photo: Sposto Photo for Tono and Co | Product Prop Stylist Los Angeles kellyoshiro.com | Photo: Sposto Photo for Tono and Co | Product Prop Stylist Los Angeles

The marine or blue collection was definitely a challenging color. Initially, when we started talking about this shoot I suggested spray painting objects to get the effect we were after. So for blue we did just that and Janelle’s team spray painted petite jewelry boxes (including the nasty white liners). I put ribbon in the boxes, and tied around, and Janelle made a petite boutonnière with the a single bloom of delphinium. My blue milk glass bowl held blueberries and aquamarine ring. Then I scattered individual light blue hydranga blooms throughout the scene.elements to this shoot. For the backdrop, Janelle and I had talked about charcoal and Justine made this simple backdrop on set for me. On top of it I styled, foraged oyster shells and textured beach rocks from Rincon and placed them in a “smoky” S-curve shape. I added in petite black river rock, black sea salt and a black Mrs. Box.kellyoshiro.com | Photo: Sposto Photo for Tono and Co | Product Prop Stylist Los Angeles kellyoshiro.com | Photo: Sposto Photo for Tono and Co | Product Prop Stylist Los Angeles kellyoshiro.com | Photo: Sposto Photo for Tono and Co | Product Prop Stylist Los AngelesThe earth collection shoot evolved quite naturally on set. For each scene They would give me a hanger full of ribbon I thought this one looked so pretty, I just simply laid it down and let the ribbon become the backdrop. I added in copper, star anise, antlers and a cool piece of bark that one of the girls had foraged from a tree. I think my favorite moment was the little bundle of cinnamon sticks tied up with ribbon.kellyoshiro.com | Photo: Sposto Photo for Tono and Co | Product Prop Stylist Los Angeles

Lace Wedding InspirationPortfolio Shoot for Jeanni Dunagan Photography
as seen on Style Me Pretty

The sweet Jeanni Dunagan was an attendee at my first workshop and a year later she booked me to create this wedding styled shoot. I was so stoked for Jeanni when it got published on the front page of Style Me Pretty. Inspired by old world elegance and a serious love of lace, Claire Pettibone’s stunning designs started as a jumping off point for the design. We chose a long sleeved lace dress with delicate pearl embellishments, booties fromBella Belle Shoes which also featured lace and pearls, a delicate pearl headpiece from Untamed Petals and an estate pearl ring from 33 Jewels. For the ceremony design, I used the existing frame at Sunstone Villa and asked the florist, Laura’s Floras, to create a Dutch still-life inspired “flower painting” inside the frame featuring spirea, delphinium, and roses. French chairs from Barn Relic made for elegant and comfortable guest seating. For the reception table, I chose an extra long gray farmhouse long table draped with a lace linen so the color of the table was still visible. The Ark’s elegant French place settings featured scrolled seating cards by Jenny Sanders along with individual flower corsages for guests. The lush florals in tones of white and green with hints of lavender and mauve featured some of my favorite flowers including, white muscari, sweet pea, hellebore, pieris and astilbe arranged in delicate glass and silver footed containers. And what old world inspired shoot would be complete without a vintage getaway vehicle? Or, in this case, a surrey from the 1880’s (and formerly owned by Michael Jackson) and pulled by Mo, the mini donkey.

The Principles of StylingPhotos by Caroline Tran
Hands-On Styling Workshop

This past March I had the pleasure of teaching my first styling workshop. I lectured about how I put together an editorial shoot and create the prop list. I also talked about how I art direct shots so it feels real and authentic for both lifestyle and wedding editorials. Then students had the opportunity to style their own shots at our “styling stations” and apply what they learned. Caroline Tran was on hand to shoot student work and capture this editorial. Solstice Bride provided a classic ballgown by Delphine Manivet and then a elegant sleeved gown by Elizabeth Dye.
