Cheyenne told me that she’d gotten to the point where she didn’t really like many photos of herself. However, the darling decided to assist me in getting some more images, as I was trying to get at least one ‘boudoir’ style image in my portfolio and as a print for the expo.
In this session, Alan decided he’d be a doll and instead of using minimal lighting like I was going to… he offered to set up some of my big lights for me. Well, big lights mean we needed a background too. (Trust me, you DON’T want to see my house.) Even my daughters got in on the fun, though it was past their bedtime. I’m not sure if they were really interested, or if they were just making excuses… either way… It was already after 10 at night, which is late for my family, (though Cheyenne and her honey are night people… and we used to be).
Anyway, we really got into the mood for it during setup. I hope Cheyenne had as much fun with it as we did. She really wass a good sport about the whole thing. I made her take her glasses off, then told her to look elsewhere… We, the blurry shapes of Bride Street, then proceeded to be silly. Which made it a little more difficult to get “serious’ shots.
Even the dog got into the spirit of it all. When Cheyenne sat down, he hopped up on her lap and looked at me. He was ready for his close-ups too. LOL! We had to shoo him away (after grabbing a couple shots), so we could try to finish up the shoot, so hubby could get to bed, as he had to work in the morning.
Come on out to see me!
Everyone needs to try to make it out to the Alt Living Expo to see the 20×30 studio sample I got from this shoot with Cheyenne! It really is a stunning image. It, along with the other print I had made, are going to be on display!
In addition, I’m thinking about doing some portraits there, and maybe even having some kind of a giveaway!
