I’ve been sittin’ on these images for over a week, which for me is a long time, and I’ve been dying to share them. I shoot and I blog–it’s just the way I like to do it. It’s sort of an addiction and my husband can vouch. I come back from a shoot, the card goes into the reader and I start editing almost immediately. I have to see what I captured. I just have to. I’m working with an extremely talented coat designer, Little Goodall, out of TX. My first glimpse of her creations was in my daily email from Etsy. I saw the fox coat and within minutes I was emailing her to ask about photographing her coats. This was the coat that caught my eye the most, as well as her other animal inspired outerwear. Since I have a size 4 model at my disposal, I knew that with just a bit a lot of bribing I’d be able to finagle him into it and down to the spot by our lake that I had been eying for this particular shot for weeks upon weeks. The concept was to head to the lake at sunset, have him stand on a peninsula and conjure up as much Max attitude as possible. But tempers were running short and I bagged the lake idea and just took him to the wooded area out back. Sadly, it continued to eat at me–that concept of mine. So, the following day I got him excited about mommy’s new idea, threw on the coat and headed down to that very special spot. You can see what a difference it makes. While the first set of photos are great, the session by the lake at sunset really sets a different tone. And for the record I know it’s a fox coat and that Max wore a wolf suit but to me it just worked! Enjoy! xoxo
and now the lake concept…..
