Here are a couple of pictures I did with Rachel while we were in Michigan this past December. Let me tell you a little bit about our shoot in the woods. It might not look like in the pictures, but it was a very cold (in the 30’s), rainy and kinda windy day! I picked places were we would be sheltered from the wind and rain somewhat but the cold I couldn’t do much about. While my assistant (my sis) and I were wearing layers of clothing, boots, scarfs, gloves, jackets and constantly moving (which kept us warm), Rachel was only wearing the makeshift dresses we wrapped her in and stationary!! What a trooper!! Between takes she would drink hot chocolate and lay a jacket over her but I’m not sure how much help that did. Yet, not a single complaint from her! She not only weathered the elements for the duration of the shoot but made it look easy. Like I said, what a trooper 🙂 I think overall we had a great time shooting, with lots of laughter and some “blond moments” that we lovingly make fun of each other for. I seem to be getting the reputation (by some of my friends) of coming up with photo projects that have to do with bad or extreme weather conditions…. All I have to say is… Watch out for what’s coming this year!!!
Happy New Year!!!
