behind the scenes – BTS photoshoot “Into the Woods”- Woodstock

Behind the Scenes – BTS photoshoot

This BTS photoshoot we wanted to bring to life that holiday feeling and we found the perfect cabin in the woods to capture that feeling, with a modern interior and exposed wood beams it set the perfect backdrop to tell the story of lazy days inside and scenic moments on the backdrop of upstate NY’s amazing fall foliage. The Hudson Valley and Catskill Mountains are especially beautiful, the trees turn all shades of yellow, orange, and bright red, at their peak it looks like the mountains are on fire, and it is one of the most romantic backdrops to shoot our autumn/winter holiday story.

No BTS photoshoot would be complete without good food, so we brought our cast iron scone pan and made pumpkin scones! We also took a brief outing on our way back the day after in Downtown Woodstock and at the Tibetan Monastery, without further ado take a peek behind the scenes…

The woodstove in the house did an amazing job keeping us warm, we just had to  get the fire going and keep it fueled.

Pre fall lingerie lookbook behind the scenes

Pre-Fall Photoshoot

Lingerie Lookbook Behind the Scenes

We couldn’t be more excited to share this shoot, we shot this lingerie lookbook behind the scenes in a gorgeous historic Hudson Valley home, the Catherine Harnden House was just idyllic, with lots of light a wood fireplace, and each room lovingly decorated with a collection of books and antiques – and for us foodies the modern kitchen was a hit as well. If you love it as much as we did you can book a stay there or at one of their adjacent properties here. We stayed in the Greek revival, and without further ado here’s a peek at our intimate editorial photoshoot.

a roaring fire in the evening at catherine harnden house

Raging fire going the night before and after the shoot, that weekend was unseasonable chilly for August.

We were so happy for the firewood, nothing like a fire to remind you that winter is just around the corner and to savor those last tastes of summer and beautiful early fall weather.

Each piece of furniture was unique and it appeared re-upholstered in truly stunning and modern fabrics, I wish I had gotten a snap of the tortoise vinyl chair… but alas we’ll have to go back for another shoot or holiday to get that now won’t we ;)

It’s good being a BTS girl, iced coffee on set is pretty much a thing – or tea, or whatever suits you.

The following day we hiked to Awosting falls for this lovely view before heading back to the city, this located in Minnewaska and a really short walk with beautiful payoff.

behind the scenes – BTS SS14 photoshoot

Behind the scenes on set of our lookbook location shoot and photo studio SS14 photoshoots for Between the Sheets Lingerie & Loungewear collections. We’ve started doing two shoots, one with more editorial images, and one for product images for our vendors and our site, so this is a two parter really. Enjoy!

BTS SS14 photoshoot –  North Fork Long Island

Nothing says summer like the bird’s and the bees, and this gorgeous North Fork summer cottage boasted plenty of flora and fauna, the perfect setting for our SS14 photoshoot. With a colorful collection we needed a backdrop that could live up to the fresh youthful coloring of the collection and this cottage’s white rooms, weeping willows, and proximity to both lake and beach scenery was just idyllic.

We woke up to the sound of wind in the willows, birds chirping, and opened the screen upon this amazing scene.


Not to mention… Swans! enough said, we were in heaven.
