Edgy is a great word for this shoot!  My friend, Christine called me the other day and asked if I wanted to meet-up to play and shoot.  She had envisioned dressing the girls up in wigs, make-up and some fun costumes.  You see Christine is a brilliant photographer/photoshopper with a creative mind that is always spinning.  She can think up things my little “vanilla” mind could never think of.  I do think I am a pretty good photographer…but I am a “safe” photographer. I know what poses work and I rarely step out of that box.  I edit fairly clean and  never with flair…but Christine..she adds drama, edginess and flair!!  That is what makes her so special!!

 Here are a few of my shots from the day.  Make-up, hair and styling all done by Christine at Trimood Photography!  Thank you for the fun day.  The girls had a blast!  If I get permission, I will add some of her shot to the post too!

 Now please know..my girls do not wear make-up or sleeveless dresses on a regular basis.  This was a fun, dress-up shoot that we did…nothing more!  😉

The shot above was taken outside at around 7:00PM using off camera flash and the ones below were taken in the same area…same light, just using natural light!!  Crazy difference!!

..and some of Emma!!

An amazing skirt made out of real hydrangeas she picked from her backyard.I told you she was creative!!

    How fun. These are amazing photographs. I never knew what effect off camera flash could have! Cool.

  2. Oh. MY! Each one I loved more than the last. Your vision and carefulness and the sheer beauty of your girls! I’d say the green wig is my favorite but then I scroll back up and think each of THOSE are my favorite.
