back up plan | edmonton lifestyle photographer |
Jessica volunteered for one of my ‘looking for a model!’ sessions. We got together to do a fun, female and flirty sessions at this awesome barn I had found just north of Edmonton. What I didn’t know was that Jessica is a pin-up and vintage QUEEN. Her style totally rocked pin-up and it switched the feel of our session and I absolutely loved it. She made it HERS. As we maneuvered through some awesome strategically placed barbed wire (she did it in heels, props!) and began to make our way to the barn basic logistics got in our way. First off, Edmonton just started getting a ton of rain and the field was nothing but MUD. Sadly we figured this out after about 5 meters into the field. We bailed quickly out of the field heading for the treed area. Jessica’s sweet white heels were trashed and my awesome Ugg style Converse shoes were slicked with mud. Trees – sounds great! WRONG – Mosquito heaven. Needless to say we bailed on the trees and quickly went under the fence again.
Okay – back up plan. Find field on the side of the road and trespass until we find a sweet spot – SUCCESS.
Jessica – you’re stunning. Even though we only had 30 minutes to shoot with before being devoured by mosquitos and being scared off by severe thunderclouds we managed to score some amazing photos. Very very excited for your big day next year.
