Maddy James' Fall Photo Shoot!

Posted: Oct 03 2014

I can’t believe fall is already upon us! This year is really flying by. We have been busy little tomatoes over here at Maddy James, working hard to get the Fall/Winter collection finished. A couple of weeks ago we had our big photo shoot. It was a ton of work, but a ton of fun too! The two days went by so fast! It’s all a big blur!

Celebrity photographer Kelly Wachs of Kelly Wachs Photography ( once again traveled from Atlanta to do the shoot. And once again, I am thrilled with how the photos turned out!

We were delighted to have hairdresser Jeremiah and noted make-up artist Suzi sending our gorgeous tomatoes decades into the past! Jeremiah was amazing with the vintage dos, transforming even our very modern Kathleen into a '40's bombshell with mile-high victory rolls.

At Maddy James, we don’t use professional models. We only use real women, which proves that every woman can look, and more importantly, feel special in our garments!

For this shoot, we also invited bloggers Brittany from Va Voom Vintage ( and Rachel from Chicago Chic ( to model for us. After so many years as a loyal reader, it was wonderful to meet these lovely tomatoes in person!

On Friday, we did most of the shooting in the Penthouse at 3420 N. Lake Shore Dr., just across the street from Belmont Harbor in lovely Lakeview.

My neighbors Helle and Suzanne and Chicago Chic's Rachel were in the spotlight.

Saturday’s models included Margie, Katie, Va Voom's Brittany and Ginte and her family. Make-up was again by Suzi. Lillian did Saturday’s hair and she had a great vintage hand for all of our models.


Even little Dottie got into the action on Saturday, posing with Margie.

All in all I couldn’t be more excited about how everything went, and I’m so anxious to start revealing what we have in store for all of you glamorous tomatoes! I really think you are going to love it!

Sweet Dreams,
