Russian Style Fairytale

Sometimes the stars align and you meet the right people.  I was completely delighted when Celeste of Poppyseed Roll Clothing reached out on instagram to discuss working together.  She hand makes all her designs, and I was pretty blown away.  I recruited Lyz to model, Celeste invited Michelle, a wonderful makeup artist, and we got together to create these Anastasia inspired Russian Fairytale Princess images.  We had originally planned to shoot in a park, but Lyz suggested the Suzallo Library, and I’m glad she did.

I would have been happy enough with the results, but when a team has so much fun working together, all the better!  And my cat tried to get into EVERYTHING during prep. Of course.

Io

I love a good dress up session!  Io looking amazing in burlesque style!  I love the element of transformation during shoots…it’s really interesting to see how moods and attitudes can shift with something as simple as a wardrobe change.

Corsets!

I loves me some corsets.  I don’t loves me wearing them for too long…I do love shooting them though.  Makes for beautiful lines, and not to mention, posture.  I’ve been fascinated with them since I was a kid.  I remember seeing Meet Me in St. Louis on Broadway, and getting to go to the dressing room of one of the actresses.  She was absolutely wonderful to me…I remember the dress she had to wear on stage…that thing weighed a ton!  The corset she wore underneath was authentic to the time period of the play.  Later in life after trying my first, I was thoroughly impressed that she could sing in that thing!  Anyway, corsets do tend to pop up in my shoots pretty often, and I notice the models attitude shift into a slightly more badass mode ;).  Don’t worry, never had a model pass out on me.
