Habits Happenings / Raquel Allegra

  • 2018 Images

        Habits has to tell a visual story because I respond best to a lovely image.  I am so fortunate to have a wonderful crew who understands this too.  As the year comes to an end, I thought it would be fun to take a look at some of our favorite images from 2018.  I am grateful for this talented posse.  Betsy Wright-Clark, Lisa Flood, and Mallory Mantle-Yarto.

     Cheers to creating more of these beautiful images in 2019.

  • Brokedown Palace

    I have driven past this lovely ghost of a home so many times.  It sits slightly uphill of a curve in the road.  Paint peeling, vines growing on and through the windows.  I have always wanted to stop and take a better look.  

    On one of those drives through Swan Valley, my daughter mentioned that see too has always wanted to stop.   So I pulled through the curve and down the dirt road right up to the house.  It was just as I thought.  Beautifully worn and ghostly.   We took photos, the light was beautiful. 

    Inspired, I told the ladies, "We are going on a field trip". We packed up my car with our favorite clothes, hats, and jewelry and set off for Brokedown Palace. The views were stunning, the light was amazing and our crew had a great time.  Sometimes, you just have to stop and take that dirt road.

  • Public Art

     

    The JH Center for the Arts and JH Public Art created an opportunity for local talent to create an outdoor pavilion on the lawn of Carrie Geraci is a close friend and the director of JH Public Art.  A passionate advocate for creativity and bringing art to the masses, she has made our little town world class.  Art should never be exclusive.  Art should provoke, make you think, make you angry, make you laugh, make you cry, it should stir emotions. We should all be exposed to it.  Jackson is fortunate to have people like Carrie who care about our community and keeping art alive for everyone.

     We decided to spend an afternoon shooting and playing among the towering panels, that contrast from light to dark and captured these lovely images.   If you are in our neck of the woods, stop by the Center lawn and enjoy the art.  We did.   It turned out beautifully and is a shining example of what can happen when a community opens its mind to art.

  • Rodeo Style

    Jackson Hole may be synonymous with great skiing, but at its heart, Jackson is a Western town. Fun fact:  Jackson had a rodeo before it was even incorporated. Our rodeo has been held almost continually since 1920, and to make the story even better, the family of one of Jackson’s earliest settlers—Sylvester Wilson--owns and runs it.

     

    Every Wednesday and Friday evening, come summer, you’ll find the Jackson Hole Rodeo in full swing at the Teton County Fairgrounds. Rodeo ain’t easy—to quote one of our favorite sayings: “And you thought football was tough, welcome to rodeo.” It may be demanding, but it sure is fun to watch.

     

    To celebrate this quintessential Jackson tradition, we headed to the rodeo’s home base with two of our favorite Jackson girls—Annie and Madison—and attired them in our own fresh take on Western wear. For instance,  Visvim and cool NYC label 6397 tee-shirts, pair beautifully with Moussy jeans and Janessa Leone hats. Or an airy Raquel Allegra dress styled up with a pair of to-die-for Visvim moccasins, a trio of necklaces, a fat leather and turquoise CLP bracelet and a Pamela Love ring. While these looks certainly have a western nod,  We would take them anywhere.
