For the Spring Fairy Tale photoshoot I had planned, I knew that the color of the dress wouldn’t look nearly as good as I imagined, so I wanted to experiment with a technique that involved painting on black and white prints. Since I had never tried this technique on the proper paper, and since I had not shot with Olivia before, I thought it would be a good idea for us to do a test shoot.
I found a nice little spot, full of blooming flowers. But unfortunately a hail storm the day before left us with a single bush to shoot in front of. I quickly realized Olivia is a delightful model to work with. Tall, emotive, and fun to collaborate with (not to mention how great her silver hair looks).
