In Case You Missed It: High Gloss Issue 3

By Erika Brechtel @smallshopstudio

Paloma Contreras does it again…

I finally had the opportunity to really sift through the July/August 2011 issue of High Gloss, and I am blown away with the amount of truly talented creative professionals squeezed into 82 spreads. Between Domicile ID, Melissa Warner of Massucco Warner Miller, Bri Morris, Amber Lewis, Emily Ruddo, Kristen Buckingham, and of course BFF (“blog friend forever” duh) Megan Biram of MIMI+MEG, I am definitely feeling unworthy of being in such company! But it was such a wonderful experience working with Paloma Contreras (how can she be pretty, talented, and SO nice? No fair!).

These are some of the images from the issue that are still speaking to me (and will no doubt stay with me for some time), probably because they involve a few of my favorite themes:
