I’d been planning this look for awhile. There’s a particular trail at Saint Edwards State Park that leads you down until you’re completely submerged in nature. It’s narrow, but not too difficult…unless, of course, you’re dressed like a nature goddess or lugging cameras. Challenge accepted. Heather was a trooper as she hiked down while mosquitos feasted on her, plants stabbed her, and the butterflies did their best to jump ship as they snagged on branches. I worked around the sneakers.
Don’t worry….she made it down in one piece. We ended the shoot at the bottom and relaxed near the lake and watched a bird of prey soar level with the water. It was a nice day.
Time is precious, people. Don’t waste it. Have a beautiful day.
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.

I’m only printing 10 of these…ever! They will be printed on absolutely gorgeous 16×20 metallic finish paper…this deluxe quality archival paper has a subtle shimmer to it that brings out the colors and depth in the image.

Here’s a blast from the past…back to the only photo course I’ve even taken, to learn film and darkroom. I forgot how tedious removing dust from scanned images can be!

Pointe shoes, rain, slippery moss covered logs…I swear I didn’t break her 😉
Let’s see…here’s an older one of Heather, pre-haircut. Dress courtesy of my mother…it’s the one I coveted growing up 😉
The mission: dreamy, princessy, fairytale…y. Lyz and I ended up in Kubota Garden complete with peonies (yep, brought my own flowers to a garden), gowns, silk, and “floof” (referring to the petticoat she made out of endless amounts of tulle. It’s a beautiful and peaceful place to shoot…you’ll see a bit more of that once I post the white dress shots.
