BTW: puppy pool party lookbook

BTW: puppy pool party lookbook
we're excited to share a little BTW - behind the weens - of the creative team and process behind our latest lookbook photoshoot shot at our studio in long beach featuring our new match my mutt collection. this was our 10th lookbook since officially launching bean goods back in 2013! producing these fashion infused doxie photo shoots to showcase our latest creations is so much fun and definitely a favorite element of our creative process.

we collaborated with minnidip, an amazing posh inflatable pool brand that really helped bring our puppy pool party theme to life. minnidip's pools complemented our colorful swimwear and matching doxie + me sets so perfectly!

putting our creative team together for these shoots is always a blast! we've been so lucky to connect with like-minded creatives who often share a passion for dachshunds like us! crazy wiener dog people ALWAYS find each other! :)

my background is in apparel design but over the past 6 years of running bean good's full time i've taken on more of a creative director role as well as doing all of our styling (and marketing, social media, customer service, packing and shipping annnd you get the point 🤣). i love bringing my love for weens, design and fashion together for our shoots!

chris, my husband and the other hoo-man half of bean goods does all of our graphic design work including the layout of our look books. he ties all of the team's creative work together and makes it shine with final design elements and fun finishing touches.

we had such a fun and dynamic team for this shoot! it was our second shoot with our photographer michelle who i originally connected with in a creative women's facebook group. michelle has been such a pleasure to work with. she's such an easy going gal and her photography is always beautiful! she lives right down the street from us in long beach with her husband and their golden retriever.

this was our 4th shoot with our talented hair and makeup artist, phoebe. i connected with phoebe in the same facebook group as michelle. in addition to her beautiful glam work, phoebe is also a doxie mama so we obviously connected right off the bat! her weenie, henry, has modeled on 2 of our shoots in the past.

we've known emily, one of our models, for years through bean goods. she was originally a customer of ours but quickly became a ween-bassador. we've always admired emily's aesthetic and love collaborating with her on photoshoots. emily has 3 rescue weenies and we love how she incorporates them into her colorful instagram, you tube channel and blog.

i connected with our other model kayci a few years ago when she interviewed me on her blog 'til 6. kayci is a doing big things with her branding agency, six things and is definitely a girl boss to watch! it was a pleasure to finally meet her IRL!

last but not least we want to make sure to give a shout out to our doxie models, too short and luna who joined our team last minute. they both were total naturals on set. we had so much fun pawtnering with them on this shoot!

we hope you enjoyed learning a little background on the creative team behind our puppy pool party lookbook shoot and we hope you love the final wienerfulness we created for you!

be sure to check out our match my mutt collection and pick out a matching outfit for you and your pup so you can live your best life and TWIN all summer long!

this 18-year-old prom queen, brenda sierra, made her 7 year old rescue weenie, sasha, a matching dress! 

“anywhere that a dog is allowed, i bring her,” brenda said. and there certainly aren’t any rules against taking your wiener-dog to the prom. so, with the extra fabric from her hemmed dress and a hot-glue gun, brenda made sasha a matching prom outfit.

2. THE FUR-AMILY THAT MATCHES STAYS TOGETHER
gorman clothing is a pioneer when it comes to matching outfits for you and your dog. they produce chic and colorful clothing mostly for humans but every year they release a limited matching collection of coats for both hounds and humans. the best part? 100% of the profits are donated to animal welfare organizations!

the day the weenstream was kidnapped

the day the weenstream was kidnapped

last week our beloved weenstream travel trailer was stolen from the lot we park it in. if you've been following our brand for a few years you know the weenstream is our happy place. before moving to the los angeles area we spent 15 months living and working full time out of that magical 13 foot fiberglass egg. she’s taken us on so many adventures. up and down both east & west coasts, across the country twice and crossing borders into canada. nearly 20,000 miles have been trekked with her. to discover she had been taken from us was a gutting feeling. we felt helpless and heartbroken.

after reporting her stolen with the police we made flyers & hung them up around the neighborhood. we turned to social media and pleaded for help with spreading the word of her kidnapping. that night a call came in from a neighbor who saw our flyer and claimed he knew where she was. we followed him to a not so nice area of long beach about 5 miles from our hood. there she was parked unhitched in plain sight in front of a run-down motel. other than being a little ransacked and smelling like someone smoked 100 cigarettes inside she was unscathed.

what really touched us with this whole experience was how much the doxie community rallied around us. our posts were shared nearly 400 times, we received 100's of DMs with words of support, hope and encouragement. we could truly feel the positive energy and it WORKED! 

here i am fighting back tears on an instagram stories update:

a few hours later we received the call from our neighbor and were able to retrieve the weenstream with the help of him and the long beach police department. talk about a rollercoaster of emotions!

we can’t even begin to explain how hashtag blessed we feel. the weenstream is home, she’s safe and she’s gearing up to take us on another adventure soon!

it's only natural to overflow the weenstream with all the wienerful things! since adding dachshund decor to our product collections the weenstream has been getting decked out in alllllll the doxie digs! dressing our bed with our new dachasso blanket felt extra special this week. can you tell we consider the weenstream a family member?! she is clearly way more than just a travel trailer to us! she really truly is our happy place! be sure to check out the weenstream's whole adventure timeline here.

p.s. if you're dying to sink your paws into that plush blanket heaven we're running a wienerful special this weekend for easter. you can buy any blanket and get a 2nd blanket for 50% off with code EASTERBLANKET. check 'em out here!

 

 

if you were one of the angels that sent us happy thoughts and positive energy during her disappearance make sure to leave a comment below so we can THANK YOU! <3
