So, the weekend before last, I had my first photo shoot with my friend Lauren (you may recall that I made her a graduation dress a few months back). Anyways, I wanted to get some better photos of the red suspender skirt ensemble, since I was in such a rush the morning of the 1938 picnic. My eventual goal is to put together a professional portfolio of things I’ve sewn, and this was a perfect project to start with.
The shoot was held in the Nisqually Valley, where there are a number of antique barns (I love old buildings!), in addition to a wildlife refuge with gorgeous scenery.
Lauren was absolutely amazing to work with, despite this being my first pro shoot (usually, I just bribe somebody in the family to be my human tripod). She really put me at ease and I can’t wait for our Halloween shoot next month!
