Behind the scenes: Fashion shoot at Eudaimonia Tea Bar in York, PA

Christy Havens of Lemoyne lit up the alley at Eudaimonia in this orange outfit from New York Trends. Special thanks to Ana Tuali, owner of New York Trends, for allowing us to use her clothing for the shoot. Fun fact: Ana lived in Brazil before moving to York and opening her shop on South George Street.

We had a beautiful spring day in York for our fashion shoot for the July/August issue yesterday.

Our models — Krista McKenzie of Paradise Township, Tamar Jones of York and Christy Havens of Lemoyne — looked fabulous in clothes from New York Trends, 205 S. George St. in York, and Baker’s Dress Shop, 33 Broadway in Hanover. (My phone died before I could get photos of the models in outfits from Baker’s!)

The gracious Cherie Mansberger opened up her shop, Cherie Anne Designs, 48 W. Philadelphia St. in York, and her new tea bar, Eudaimonia, for us to use for the shoot. The courtyard outside of the tea bar is beautiful with a rustic, urban feel and lots of character. Thank you, Cherie!

Below are some of the shots I took while York Daily Record/Sunday News staffer Ashley May took photos and Smart graphic artist Samantha Dellinger prepped the models by doing their hair and makeup.

Ashley May tells Christy how to stand, which was a little bit of a challenge in 6-inch heels.

Tamar Jones, 40, of York takes her turn in front of the camera in another outfit from New York Trends.

Christy, Krista McKenzie, 26, Samantha Dellinger (who has a sunburn because she spent that morning doing chalk art for another Smart project) watch as Ashley takes photos of Tamar. I was taking pictures from the stairs in the courtyard. Above me, a mama dove sat on her nest in hanging flower container. I tried to not disturb her.

Check out Sam’s other project from yesterday.
