Natalia, Avriel & Brett for Nike Sportswear’s Look of Sport: Los Angeles by Olivia Crawford, styling by Jazzi McGilbert

These are just a few photos from a shoot I styled for Nike Sportswear’s Spring/Summer collection. This was a marathon of a shoot (like my sports lingo?) and I feel like a champ just being a part of it. We shot 15 subjects in just a few days all over Los Angeles and in their homes. It was really interesting to peek into so many different people’s lives and stories. I’m particularly excited to about Olivia Crawford, our incredibly sweet and talented barely-legal-age photographer. She shoots exclusively with film and I love the candid intimacy she captured. Her eye and passion for photography is really something – living proof that age ain’t nothing but a number. Nike discovered her work on Flickr and I give them major props for seeking out new talent and giving them (and me!) a shot! More of that from everyone please!

I think I should also credit this shoot for pushing me to get a bike (seeing all these active people made me resent my oft sedentary lifestyle) and Olivia for inspiring me to pick up an old film camera which I’ve been having a blast with. More on that later.

More photos will be rolling out on Nike Sportswear’s FB page every day this week, so keep an eye out. I even did some casting, and Sean – who takes most of my outfit photos – will be in a set! I’ll be posting again with some behind-the-scenes shots and more about the shoot.
