The following session is one I've been wanting to do for a long time. I kept putting it off because I thought "it's more of a personal project, I have too much work to do!" but I finally just did it and you know what? I feel so much better. I feel inspired. I feel like I needed this shoot just to push myself a little further in my art. I know that there are a lot of people that don't like trash the dress sessions. To be honest, I will probably never do it with my dress. But I think this session is incredibly beautiful...
Hair and makeup was done by the incredibly talented Carla White. She is seriously amazing at what she does and I love working with her. My beautiful model is none other than my sister, Alaina. I love working with her, too.
The dress started out with long, lacy, beaded sleeves so we trimmed it up a little before we started shooting.
Then I gave Alaina some scissors.
I'm pretty sure this is my favorite from the shoot. The golden sunset light was just perfect and I think the dress looks even better after we cut it!
We were hopping in the elevator to go down and I just had to shoot a little bit here.
Check out the amazing storm clouds that rolled in as we were headed to the car. Drama!
