I can not believe that I forgot to post this set. I was looking through my blog this weekend and realized that I only posted a couple of these on Facebook. What was I thinking?? This was one of my absolute favorite sets from last year. I did this session at the end of last year with a client of mine who just amazes me. She is a miliner (hat maker) and dressmaker who creates historically accurate, hand made, costumes. She seriously blows my mind. I mean I can sew but not anything amazing. I can make “photo ready” pieces, which basically means it’s held together with tape and pins and will fall apart the second we are done shooting it. This woman however can make everything from gowns to hats and shoes. Yes shoes. She made every dress she wears in this set. She even made the fuchsia corset and knickers, the hoop skirt and yes the shoes. Suffice it say I am beyond impressed with her skills and I am thrilled and so fortunate that I have the opportunity in my work to meet such amazingly talented people. You can follow her costuming adventures and learn a lot about historical fashion on her blog Diary of a Mantua Maker and find her wears for sale in her Etsy store.
This set falls into the realm of Glamour Photography only it’s more than that. It’s more like classic retro glamour. I had such a great time working with her. Selecting only a few outfits from her collection was a challenge. With so many wonderful classically beautiful pieces to choose from we decided on 2 distinct looks and 4 outfits. Classic Hollywood Glamour and then a set reminiscent of vintage circus post cards. These were all shot on location as well, in a setting that fit her wardrobe pieces best. I so thoroughly enjoyed working on this set and I’m very happy to now share the images with you. Enjoy!
