Think outside the box for your session! San Diego Boudoir Photographer
Every now and then I am so thankful to be presented with sessions that challenge me creatively, photographically, and personally. These are the things that help me so much in my every day life as well as with the work I do every day.
While this session I will admit is a bit over the top and not something for everyone, it represents thinking of and using elements that are uniquely you, or maybe something you have always dreamed of doing or being… now is your chance!
For Weddings, Engagements, Boudoir, Family, any type of session really, when we can use significant elements of someones life, heart and soul, the outcome is amazing. It is always all about letting you be you, and then we add our artistic vision and voila!
Thursday last week I had the opportunity to work with a wonderful lady, Melanie. Melanie and I met in May of 2006 when she was a bridesmaid in a wedding we shot. That day we connected and talked about her work with wildlife rescue animals and how much fun it would be to do a session together with her and the animals. Last week that day finally came and we were all beyond excited when we heard the list of animals Melanie was bringing with her. The list included a 6 Foot Alligator named “Spike”, a Kangaroo “Gyra” a Python and a Bald Eagle. Spike of course had everyone a bit worried, but after a while our assistants and stylists were ok with him, me… not so much. I was TERRIFIED. I am the girl that screams and jumps aside when one of those little lawn lizards runs past me, can you imagine how I felt with Spike? It was a challenge for sure for me to work with him, and yes… I did jump up on a chair a few times when he made his was across the floor towards me. At the end of the shoot I did kind of pet him while standing waaaay behind him. For me.. I overcame a big fear, now those little lawn lizards just make me giggle ;o) And look at that, I can shoot while terrified!
Also at the studio that day to work with Melanie and her animals was San Diego Model Yonah Eveline. Yonah and I had done a shoot a few weeks before and I had mentioned the Alligator to her and she was all about doing a session with him to. We were so thankful Melanie agreed to share the spotlight with Yonah that day.
This was one adrenaline packed fun-filled day… and a HUGE thank you to our stylists for the day… Brenda E and Marqui, my assistants Lori and Jennie. couldn’t have done it without you ladies!
Here are a few of our faves from the day along with some behind the scenes photos taken by Lori…..
