I had been planning this session for a few months - trying to connect with the Saint John Public Library in Market Square, and the manager Daniel Teed. Planning out the pictures and talking with my model. Phone tag, some sick days, my model getting a new job, my van breaks down. There came a point I didn't think this session would happen.
We were all able to connect and set a date! I was so excited - maybe too excited. Shelby and I met at 8:50 and were let in an hour before the public was in, and she had to leave by 10:30 at the latest to get back to work. I started to feel rushed, one of my lenses was acting up, and I felt totally thrown off my game and ker-fuf-ulled right from the get go! I was so afraid after months of planning that it would be all for nothing.
After taking a break from all the before and after day sessions, I decided to peek through the images. I was terrified to even look for fear they would just completely suck! But, I was pleasantly surprised. Not as many as images as I had hoped for, but here are some of my favorites!
Regardless - Shelby was the perfect Belle!
Model: Shelby Rae Glendenning
Hair & Make-up: Shelby Rae Glendenning
Location: Saint John Public Library, Market Square
Shout out to Daniel Teed, manager of the library! THANK-YOU!
The next image was more for fun, geared towards a kids poster idea.
Wait until you see what I have planned for my next themed session! Involves an extreme make-over, and probably a drive about an hour away. I am looking for a woman, with long hair - either blonde or redhead. Interested in spending an entire day in make-up and hair and behind a camera? Send me an email with a picture!
