Best Doctors 2013 | photography by CHRIS PLAVIDAL + styling by JENNIFER BIGHAM | DMagazine October 2013

Chris and Jen created a teddy bear-sized world for the D Magazine October 2013 cover story, “Best Doctors 2013.”

Styling by SisterBrother stylist Jennifer Bigham

Stylist Jennifer Bigham tells us a few details about how these pint-sized “model” shots came together.

I searched high and low for children-sized waiting room furniture but finally called on my mom for a favor with Medical City Childrens Hospital. The staff was so kind and helpful in finding the perfect chairs we were needing!! Whew!

Taking the stuffed bears into Nordstrom and trying baby clothes and shoes on them was an experience. The sales people thought we were mental!

It took a lot of patience and styling magic to make the bears look lifelike.
As well as the perfect lighting touches.

There are new tricks and lessons learned on every shoot.
What did Jen learn on this one?
“How to haggle price down on carpet!”
A valuable skill. Not just for dressing sets, but for life.
“Haha!”

Below are some of photographer Chris Plavidal’s outtakes from the shoot.






A favorite shoot detail for Chris?
The old fashioned doctor’s head mirror light REALLY WORKS! So cool!
