If you know me you know that I highly dislike being cold. I'm the kind of girl that thrives in 90 degree weather and loves summer to it's fullest. This week I discovered that I love snow just as much as I love summer.
We've had the most snow I've seen since I was a little girl and these past two weeks have been one of the most creative weeks I've had in a long time. So since Sunday I've had a vision in my head of a photo-shoot in the snow. Not just any photo-shoot though, a daring one.
Everyone was stuck at home under a foot of snow, which left me to carry out the vision that I had all by myself. Honestly it was a huge struggle to get my butt out in the snow. I almost didn't do it, but knew that if I didn't I would regret it for a very long time.
So out I went in a short dress, boots without socks and my snowsuit to one of my photo-shoot locations that is walking distance from my house. I wish I would have thought this thing threw because when I got there and did a couple of test shots I realized that focusing the camera, getting out of my boots and snowsuit, running to pose and then finally posing all within 10 seconds of the self timer is rather impossible. I have some very interesting outtakes as I danced around taking my boots and suit off.
Was it cold? You don't even know, but I was burning with a vision that kept me warm and it was so very much worth it! I also want my clients to know that I make myself do crazy things too for that perfect shot.
