Into the Woods we went, shot on location in Woodstock NY our Holiday lookbook is about the romance of getting away & lazy holidays spent Between the Sheets.
The leaves were at peak color in the Hudson Valley and Catskills when we shot this lookbook in Woodstock, NY. Finding inspiration away from the hustle and bustle of NYC, our newest lookbook shot during peak of fall foliage in a modern cabin with a woodstove, the ideal little spot to capture the magical holiday mood. Make sure to check out our behind the scenes post for more photos from this shoot.

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…

We arrived late the night before and this was the first view from our cabin the morning of the shoot
Can you spy the deer in between the two round top trees? A whole family was grazing the morning of our shoot <3
The view of the Catskills right outside our cabin.
Plenty of firewood!

Our neighbors and the pond on the property.
We always get “fresh” props the night before or morning of, for this shoot we kept it seasonal with fruit and flowers.

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

We all took turns making these, halfway done on the shoot by our lovely model Anelisa!

The drive out from our cabin was equally as lovely, a gorgeous vista of the Catskill Mountains in peak Autumn foliage.
Woodstock Flea Market
We loved that this little leaf fluttered down and landed in these antique skillets as we were browsing

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.

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
What an incredible balcony, we sat out on this in the evenings and it was idyllic.
Iced strawberry basil lemonade we made from scratch the night before was a refreshing treat on set. Yesenia wrapped in one of the house’s beautiful Kantha throws.
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.
Nightstands with beautiful lamps, each was a bit different but perfectly paired.
Josh showing me the shot, and Yesenia was just lovely & the natural light and beautiful backdrop made our job that much easier. Stay tuned for a lookbook blog post or if you’re itching to see the final result check it out, shop early fall lookbook here.
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.

and then a little goofing off

Josh, literally climbing trees to get the shot!
Always some minor adjustments to make the shot perfect.
Cheers to a successful shoot! We went out afterwards to celebrate and hung around that night so we didn’t have to rush back – perfect ending to a productive weekend!
Our second shoot for SS14 was to get clean studio shots of product from both FW13-SS14 and a couple of items on the site that needed updated photos. A catch all with the lovely Kate on set with us in Brooklyn!
our model “Kate the Great” – she brought the best laid back energy and stories of life in Bali to set!
