One lazy, sun-drenched day in LA, while photographing vintage clothes in a stunning art deco apartment building for her now defunct Ebay store, a particularly savvy friend told Brooke she should be a prop stylist. Brooke didn’t believe her. Brooke was a very stubborn young lady.
Fast forward one million years - after working in art galleries in Los Angeles, traveling in Asia for a year and a half, opening her own brick-and-mortar vintage clothing store in Montreal, producing DIY photo shoots, and merchandising a mid-century furniture store in Chicago- Brooke realized she'd been composing and photographing balanced, dynamic environments all along the way.
Brooke began styling as Owner and principal Visual Merchandiser for Citizen Vintage in Montreal, QC (voted best Vintage Clothing Store in Montreal several years running) and then as Head of Visual Merchandising for Modern Cooperative Pilsen in Chicago. Brooke happily left retail merchandising behind to join the Crate & Barrel photo studio team as Stylist Assistant for two years before launching her own business.
As principal drink + prop stylist, Brooke's recent client list includes:
Maple Hill Creamery
Brooke is a compulsive visual organizer and, thanks to her '90s thrift store kid days, is pretty awesome at sourcing decor, accents and furnishings in unexpected places.
BUT, in the spirit of full disclosure:
Things Brooke Is Really Bad At:
Waiting in Line
Waitin for The Man
Sitting for 10 hours
Brooke can't catch a football but is currently available for prop sourcing and styling. Contact for day rate. Collaborations welcome!
