Moodboard Monday: California Countryside

Moodboard Monday: California Countryside

by Melissa Magsaysay

What goes into making an image appear candid, flawless and effortless? Quite a bit. From conception to execution, from location to catering, the glamour of a photo shoot is just a sliver of the process.

It all starts with the concept and a vibe set by a mood board of beautiful and aspirational imagery. For every Mood Board Monday, chief creative officer Shannon Hall shares her inspiration and creative process for each 11 Honoré shoot.

This month it’s a farm just a few miles from Malibu, that though located in California resonates as a classic setting that could be anywhere in America. The campaign stars Tara Lynn and will be appearing on the 11 Honoré throughout October.

The Inspiration

It’s “Town and Country meets Days of Thunder.” There is a rustic quality to the setting, but the overall vibe is elegant - almost regal.

The Location

A farm near Thousand Oaks, CA. It was a beautiful sprawling space with magnificent oak trees and an old barn. It was close to where we are based, but felt a million miles away at the same time, which added to the timeless aesthetic we were trying to capture.

The Mood

The mood is summed up in one of my favorite hashtags: #restingrichface.
