"I'm a Barbie girl, in a Barbie world. Life in Plastic, it's fantastic!" I have had those lyrics on a loop in my in my head the entire time I worked on this fun and colorful set featuring the lovely Chelsea Texeira! When Chelsea first approached me about doing a Barbie themed shoot I instantly jumped on the idea. I knew Chelsea would embody the California Barbie perfectly and boy did she deliver!
We decided to shoot down by the boardwalk area of Pacific Beach, the area has a quintessential California feel and fit right in the with Cali Barbie theme. I love the look of the PB Pier and knew I wanted to shoot a couple of the looks next to it! The little bungalows that line the pier as it heads off into the gorgeous pacific ocean always make you feel like you are on vacation when you are on the beach in PB.
Every Barbie girl knows that it's important to stay in shape, especially when you live in Cali, but it's even more important to look adorable as you do! And, whenever possible, match your bike to your workout gear!
We made sure to include a look that was ready for a night on the town, because what Cali Barbie doesn't need a great sequin dress when she's ready to go out with her friends?
