This session was so fun!
Savannah is full of artsy style and originality. When I met with Savannah for her consultation, I knew for the most part we needed to make this session extra artsy and one of a kind. She had some fun clothing and prop ideas and from there the ideas started flowing. For her session we borrowed a fog machine and then realized that we needed to figure out a way to get power with a lot of wattage out in the middle of nowhere. A generator was the answer! We did not have one, but since we live in Texas where there is the chance of a hurricane and power loss we thought we should get one. It is nice when you can justify a business expense for a personal need. Then we needed a big utility cart to lug all our equipment into the forest. We bought the portable generator from Costco and the heavy duty utility cart from Lowes. Thank God we bought a truck a few months back! LOL!
It was so very hot for this session. At 6 in the evening, it was still 104 degrees and there was barely any breeze. This was a good and bad thing. No breeze kept us sticky and hot, but it kept the fog from blowing away too fast.
Savannah was a fantastic sport. Walking a good half a mile into the forest, then we draped fabric over her to use as a hooded cape. She must have been boiling hot at that point! She knew it was worth it.
Special thanks to Amy Tate for letting us borrow the fog machine. And thanks to Stacy Pool for letting us borrow the lantern.
The top hat was one of my creations and the old candleholder was one of my antiques that my dad bought me when I was a kid!
The rest of the session was done two hours earlier in the day. Savannah had lots of fun stuff for those shots also and was still keeping with her personal fun style.
The Japanese dress was custom made for Savannah’s grandma many years ago!
The photos in the red shirt and eyeglasses were screaming originality. You will see all the captions on the Savannah-style photo above!
