You’ll notice that the shoot on January 31st in yesterday’s post was done outside. It was nearly 60 degrees that day and most of the snow had melted. I don’t quite know how we got so lucky, I had not concocted a backup plan. For the most part, however, TJ and I have been spending this winter inside our tiny studio, playing with random bits of wardrobe we have lying around, and focusing on things we can do in small spaces.

On this particular occasion, for our shoot with Allie, I didn’t even worry about official hair and makeup. I’m by no means a fantastic makeup artist, and I’m an even worse hair stylist, but I do enjoy doing these things myself from time to time. It gives me a chance to connect with the model before taking pictures, and it means I can decide what we’re doing last minute and not worry about confusing a stylist.

There is certainly something to be said for keeping things simple. And staying warm. I’m okay with sweater weather hanging around a while longer.


Well, a little while longer…
