The evolution of a concept.
It’s been brewing for three, maybe four years. It’s evolved in stages, from a flying bed care of Bert & Ernie on Sesame Street coming to fruition as my vintage wrought iron bed strung with lights in the shape of a sail. Followed by a baby Christmas tree being pulled on a vintage wooden sled. From a lone Christmas tree in a beautiful wooden dory in a harbor to finding a gorgeous handmade dory on Craigslist that I knew I HAD TO HAVE even just for this shoot. This year my vision came to life.
I’m a procrastinator by nature. This was the very last day I could shoot to enlist the help of my husband to bring the boat down to the lake we live next to. He was leaving on his annual heli-skiing trip and the kids had a half day at school which meant I had enough time to prep and get them dressed before the sun went down. Knowing how incredibly picky they are with clothing that may or may not have been a total battle!! Of course, with my luck, this day happened to be 30 degrees and 30mph winds. Not ideal! However, while I did wind up rushing through it and didn’t shoot until the fun fully dipped below the tree line because the kids were too cold, I am happy with the results.
That’s a wrap for 2015. I hope everyone has a wonderful holiday!
And the magical version I envisioned…
