As a photographer, I get a lot of ideas of shoots I want to try, things I want to experiment with, etc., but I never have time to do them! Don’t get me wrong. I’m not complaining that I’m busy with all my fabulous clients, but I realized that it had been quite some time since I’d shot just for me. Thanks to my new assistant extraordinaire Kayti, I finally did! I had been envisioning this shoot for quite some time, and when I mentioned it to Kayti, she said, “Let’s do it!” She lined up her fabulous cousin Tiffany to be our model (Tiffany is a also hairstylist, so if you need a great cut or new style, just let me know and I’ll give you her info!). For the location we headed out to this great old house in Payson that my parents are fixing up (sort of wish I had the money to buy it myself and keep it in its run-down state!). The shoot didn’t go quite as I’d envisioned–couldn’t get the lighting quite how I wanted it–but I had fun and got to be creative, so the goal was met!
Isn’t she stunning?
P.S. I did this shoot before attending Zack Arias’ OneLight Workshop (phenomenal), and now I have to laugh to think of all the things I did wrong (lighting wise) during this shoot! Live and learn, I guess.
P.P.S. Happy April Fool’s day (do you actually wish someone to have a happy april fool’s day?) I’m not much of a prankster, so no jokes here! What about you? Do you have any good prank stories?
