"The reason I ended up living in my current apartment is because of Carly. It’s in a beautiful building that was built as a hotel in the 1920’s and was later converted to apartments. It’s retained much of its old-style charm, so Carly and I figured our new mutual home would be the perfect place for a photoshoot. The light in the west stairwell is divine at golden hour and in Carly’s apartment in the morning, so we had to shoot there. Having modeled for Minneapolis-based vintage clothing shop Moth Oddities and modern pin up magazine Pink Bow City, Carly knew how to work it for the camera. And as the manager of Madewell at Southdale, she was also happy to show off their denim!"
