Sometimes I like to do personal shoots that challenge me. This time, I wanted to see if I could come up with enough fabulous photos to fill my top collection without shooting one bit of lingerie. Guess what... it worked! I called up a friend and past client to ask if she was game. Mind you, I can be a bit bossy with my friends. She agreed and a date was set with a sitter to watch our kiddos and the fabulous makeup artist, Edgar. It was a trial for him, too. More on that later. I also wanted to incorporate what I've been learning from Denise Birdsong's workshop, Stripped Down. That meant getting photos with emotions and a message. Pretty photos are easy (especially when your subject is so cute), but capturing something that gives the viewer a reaction is a challenge.
We did three sets with different themes. Here are just a few of my favorites
Thank you B, for being such a good sport and really committing to the posing, the expressions and wearing little more than a sheet.
