In case you’re wondering about the title of this article, it’s correct. If you have yet to hear of Blinkit Photography, then let me enlighten you on the husband and wife duo that I have had the pleasure of working with on the past few projects. Mike and Stephanie Gines have been operating their photography firm for two years in an industry that has been identified as having an “over saturation of artists.” Most who have been in the industry for at least seven years, photographing celebrities and or high-end designers and clients. Since their two-year endeavor, the Gines’ team has worked on City of Inland Empire projects and various entertainment awareness campaigns. With an amazing “eye behind the lens and computer graphics expertise” their photos become extraordinary photographic images.

My first experience with this creative team was when they asked me to style a shoot for actor Darren Darnborough. I was more than thrilled to work with them and, for the first time, style a man. The mood board was a touch of beauty that was well thought-out, with a title of Envisage and a definition of “something not yet existing, conceived as a possibility or a desirable future event.”

With this inspiration, I immediately hit the ground running with stores in mind to select attire and accessories. Dolcetti Boutique I chose for street wear, and Boutique De Marcus for the GQ look. When Darren Darnborough and I started talking about his style, coloring and body structure we then went to an additional source for clothing, Rudsak, a personal friend of Darren’s who generously offered many style options. Manny, who owns The EkQuality Style Hause/The Gent’s Closet, also was a noteworthy contributor to Darren’s wardrobe. After the wardrobe selection, I had more than enough styling options, so the fun began.

The team consisted of Mike and Stephanie Gines, Artemisia Rivas Jewelry Designer and yours truly, Aubree Lynn as stylist. There was no hair and make-up (got to love guys) as we began scouting shoot locations. I was in my element and started zoning in on Darren to determine the concept and the execution. The day turned into a four-part location shoot with nearly eight wardrobe changes. We emerged as a solid and fluid team. It felt as if we had been doing this together during Blinkit’s full two-year term.

As the night came to a close, friendships emerged, a team was built, professionalism evolved with creative minds working as one. Ultimately, a concept, a vision and a common goal were achieved. This is my passion, my love and one day WILL be my life. As we say after a photo shoot, “You’ve just been BLIKID.”
