We love making new friends on the internets. If you're on instagram, it's pretty likely that we've liked one of your photos or commented a "fire emoji" or "happy face with heart-eyes emoji". One of the people we met when we first started working on the Two Eggs concept was Zoe Lawrence, AKA @wheresfrankocean. At the time, she had way fewer followers, but we were super impressed with her photography skills and fell head over heels for her style. We loved how her photos felt rookie-esque without seeming like she was even trying that hard.
So we did what all internet creepers do. We slid into the DMs and asked if she'd be down to collaborate on something with us. She was super open to the idea, so we met up when we were all out in LA this fall. One of the first things she said when we met IRL was, "I'm not like a professional photographer, so don't get your hopes up. These pics may be terrible."
I watched her closely that day as she worked, as she agreed to all our weird/crazy/dumb shot ideas, as she had patience with us as we stepped in and ruined so many great pictures to adjust a strap or turn a body, and as she helped our "real girl" models feel comfortable and have fun during the shoot. If anyone was a pro that day, it was Zoe. Oh, and did I mention that she was only 19 at the time?
When we were about to launch our undies this winter, we reached out again to see if Zoe might be interested in getting her girls together to take a few more pics of our pieces. Once again, she's totally floored us with her work, and we couldn't be more grateful to have such an amazing artist and collaborator as part of our Girl Gang.
