WE’VEARRIVED. Hahah. Kidding, but it certainly felt that way when we received the go ahead from Panty Drop to do the shoot for their Spring / Summer 21 collection. I’m so proud of these images and everything that they mean. All bodies are beautiful, and every person carries a unique beauty that is meant to be celebrated. I believe these photos are a part of that inclusivity and celebration that I hope carries through all the images we make.
These images were produced, directed, and photographed by myself, Lizzy Rollins.
Photo assistant: Christopher Rollins
Talent: Brynn Plummer, Kieren Lewis, Darius Smith, Glennon Wagner, and Katie Fender-Davis.
Our favorite place to spend time, beyond the comfort of home, is called Babas. The team at Babas welcomed us into their space to make some photos for a day of service, and these are the images we made. A profound reason to love this place is the level of flex that they tend to go to when given just the faintest hint of permission. From truffles on grilled cheese, to caviar on onion dip, the love is very much alive at Babas. If you love food, this is an affair for you.
To return the love, we made these images on 35mm + 120mm film (and a little video with our Vivitar 503HD). The result was an awesome collection of images that truly feel like what it is like to sit and enjoy this place. Timeless, delicious, and warm. I love these photos and I’m so happy to share them with you. Cheers to y’all, and to Babas <3
These are a few images from projects we’ve done at home, and around, during the winter months. Luckily, as our friends at Sightsee call it, Charleston has more of a “Cold Summer” than a true “Winter”. And it looks particularly dreamy on our porch, and amidst the golden light that spills into our living room in the early afternoons. Random note: I think it’s funny to see just how many times we photographed against a piece of blue silk and with my blue jacket. Anyway, here are some photos we made…
Also, I’ve been making some work under the guise Lizzy Rollins. Only, it’s not so much a guise as my real name… in effort to connect more to the fun, silly, whimsy, unabashed-ness that is LIZZY, you can meet her here.
