Cast of lovelies, clockwise: cute blonde girl with bike who held a reflector screen, make-up artist Bella B., Chelsea as George, copyeditor Kate doubling as stylist assistant, Zoe as Nancy Drew, Simone as Bess, showrunner of the entire shoot Esme, photographer Lisa, brand new intern Valentina, (and me behind the camera).
