I was contacted by photographer MMO Photo about creating a fantasy themed shoot in the winter. She felt I had delicate features, and could pull off a modernized take on a Fairy. After some brief back and forth, we came up with our character, and combined items from our own closets to create the Fairy’s Wardrobe.
Behind the scenes fun
Ironically, the area we shot in was only 5 minutes from where I had lived and attended school not even two months before. Which made it very easy to find out meeting spot!
Another fun detail about this shoot, it had snowed the day before. So during the shoot, it was only about 30 degrees. In direct sunlight.
We put a bath mat down so I could stand on something white that would blend into our background, and was NOT snow. However, when you’re shooting in lingerie and a sheer top, a bath mat doesn’t make too much of a difference.
When we ran back inside for the outfit change, her mom made some freshly brewed tea for us. Not only that, but she coaxed me to sit in her super comfy chair while wearing a toasty robe and blanket. This made it a bit difficult to head back out. But it helped knowing there would be blankets and tea waiting for me after!
Even with the Winter weather, I had a lot of fun and loved how ethereal the images came out. Thank you, MMO Photo for initiating a conversation so we could create some amazing art together!
