Butterflies

DSC_7460

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.

Tudor Fairytale

Tudor time!  Celeste of Poppyseed Roll Clothing and I got together with Jordan here for a royal, Tudor inspired shoot.  Celeste made this entire outfit, once again blowing my mind with her attention to detail.  Jordan made a perfect Tudor model, and don’t worry, managed to keep her head attached to her body.  We shot this at Saint Edwards State Park, one of my favorite places in the Pacific Northwest…the first shot is actually part of a playground…work with what you’ve got, right?

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.
