A few weeks ago i had the opportunity to travel up to my parents lake house in Dadeville, Alabama to gather with my sister and her very best friends to celebrate her last days of being single.
I brought a few things from my studio wardrobe closet to play dress up with her at one of my favorite places in the world. I love this house, I love this house, and I love this woman right here.
This is one of my favorite shots ever.
I love the realness of movement and expression.
And I love chopped heads.
I am used to crazy windy beaches and the middle of the lake in the morning is, well, not windy at all.
But like I said, there were lots of ladies with us.
So we improvised.
Pretty sure I need a crew for ground support from now on.
Open up the pictures in the grid.
That little firecracker in the red almost made me pee my pants.
IT ISN'T AS EASY AS IT SOUNDS, MAKING WIND BLOW OKAY??
But we finally figured it out. ;)
It was a little chilly, my sister was like, "IS THIS DRESS SEE THROUGH???" and we really only had like 20 minutes between rain pours, but I am absolutely in love with all these pictures and her face and her happiness and her heart full of love.
This face right here - ugh.
WHO IS THIS CHICK?
Mrs. Jackson. That's who.
Welp, there you have it, my sister is one of my favorite subjects, and this is one of my favorite shoots, and some of my favorite pictures. I adore having the freedom to dress, doll up, and direct a living breathing art piece, and create something wonderful with someone I love.
This is why I do what I do.
This is why it all gets done.
