Recently, The Penny Rose production team completed a stellar photo shoot on one fine Sunday in downtown Santa Cruz. The results of our shoot will be unveiled during Santa Cruz Holiday Fashion Week Nov. 26-29 on thepennyrose.com, where readers will see eight different outfits that fit into five different holiday "looks." Each "look" was inspired by a Christmas movie, and given a contemporary twist. Here, you'll see photos and collages from our behind-the-scenes photographer Sera Michael (also a writer for The Penny Rose). Sera captured some lovely moments between our team.
