First, Let me tell you there are LOTS of photos in this blog. 60 to be exact! Maybe it’s because I find it difficult to edit myself…LOL. But……. I fell in LOVE Tess’s photos! This photo shoot was done just before Christmas on a stunningly beautiful winter day. About an hour into our shoot I asked Tess if she ever considered modeling…..She laughed and said ” you probably say that to all your clients.” ” No, no, I don’t” I replied. I’m serious! Tess said she was too shy and awkward to consider modeling. I disagreed with her saying, she may be shy, but the awkward was more quirky, and only in the best possible way! The kind of quirky that makes you stand out as an individual. I’m always looking for that special spark in the people I photograph, that thing that makes them unique, that makes them who they are. That’s when you find a person’s true inner and outer beauty!
Tess chose to GLAM it up for her shoot. She wore a FABULOUS red vintage dress with a white tulle skirt to add fullness. A simply glamorous forest green gown that made her look like a 1940’s movie star. The wool cape with the cutoffs is a vintage piece that was made in London that I picked up at OOH LA LOFT. The adorable, super feminine ruffled strapless dress was paired with one of my favorite pieces, a white faux fur from FOR LOVE and LEMONS.
Tess was photographed in Petaluma, on the historical west side. Yes, I found the new mural in the alley and I LOVE IT!!!
