Red head, green dress
Is there ever a better match than a red head in a green dress? My daughter was sick last week, so as you can imagine I spent a lot of time on the couch watching nickelodeon. During this time I did a lot of day dreaming about getting outside and taking some photos! Winter is getting long, there was still snow on the ground, and St. Patricks day was right around the corner. As such, I decided to do a photo shoot for me. One where I could get creative in my edits and really just get out into the fresh (cold) air! That is where Maizy and Bennett come in. To start the process, I did a model search on Facebook to find the perfect red head! My ideal model’s hair would be really red, and she was going to have to wear green. I had a great response to the model call, and at the end of the day I got the perfect submission. Maizy was exactly the little red head I was looking for. Originally, I envisioned the photoshoot being with a little girl, but I also got a handful of boy submissions, so I invited Bennett along as well.
I borrowed a green dress by Well Dressed Wolf. Bennett showed up in a cute biker jacket that we rolled with. I chose a location that was up pretty high. It was important for me to get a bunch of sky in the photos because I fully intended on adding some rainbows in. I wanted there to be pseudo-St. Patrick’s day theme. In other words, I wanted the models to be red heads, I wanted the green dress, and rainbows. I did not want leprechauns! The evening was cold, and despite that, the kiddos did a great job! I was able to get the shots that I wanted, do some over the top editing, and also produce a couple cute, organic images for Mom.
