Brittany Cavaco in Central Park…
Seattle is slowly blooming, which I’m always happy to see. A splash of color appearing on the mostly gray background is definitely invigorating. I should have some new work coming out in the next couple of weeks…Seattleites, contact me if you’d like to shoot!
I grew up on these swings, and quite possibly have more fun on them as an adult…throw in a bottle of bubbles and I’m a happy girl. Anyway, here’s Brittany!
This shoot was very mellow and relaxed…just wandering the park looking for interesting backgrounds, done in about and hour and a half. When Brittany showed me this peach outfit, I was excited to shoot her against grays and greens. Interesting how some of these don’t look like they were taken in NYC…little more of a fairy tale vibe. When we got the bridge, we encountered some tourists with two little girls. They were quite mesmerized with meeting a real ballerina! Brittany was so sweet to them and they all got on their toes while the parents snapped a picture.
I do have a few prints from this shoot (and many others) available here: www.elizabethzusev.etsy.com and more will be added shortly!
My mission this past Monday: get out the camera and celebrate the end of winter with the lush green of Central Park. Brittany and I got up early to take advantage of the soft gray, slightly foggy sky. FYI: cloudy is better for outdoor shoots when you’re just bringing a camera with no extra lighting gear! It’s funny, normally the gray weather doesn’t put me in the best of moods, but when I have a project like this, I’m all too happy to run around in the mist.
I’m going to show you these in more than one post. This is the first look we did…inspired by the movie “Funny Face” with Audrey Hepburn. I wasn’t allowed to watch TV as a child (a good thing in my opinion), but I did get to watch a lot of musicals…my mother got me hooked at a young age. “Funny Face” is one of my favorites…of course it is, it has a photographer in it 😉
Side note: I learned that dancers go through their pointe shoes in 2 weeks, sometimes even 2 days!
