Ever have one of those ideas for a shoot you just have to get out of your head? I had this really cool idea incorporating birds into looks for the shoot we did Friday. I love to pull inspiration off the web for shoots such as this one.

It was a pretty hot muggy day on location. We set up and pulled off two looks with the assistance of Todd and Jimmy from a Facebook KC photographer blog. Thank goodness they were there since it’s a little difficult for a 7 month pregnant woman to hold reflectors and huge beauty dishes. 😉

So with the help of Shannon at Rock Candy boutique, a couple stops at Goodwill and Michael’s I threw together a quick look. It’s not styled like what I imagined on a NYC high-end shoot and it seems to work. What I think is pretty cool is Emily’s uncanny resemblance to Natalie Portman.Emily was a great sport (even in the heat) and we enjoy working with her!

Hi, I just stumbled here while looking up Longview Mansion and had to comment. Image four is magical. The sky’s gradients with the hint of sun in upper right. Then the wonderful jewel of a model with a striking pose contrasted against the soft dark green background. Wow, magic strikes.
