Photoshoot Friday, Springtime in the Winter edition

11 April 2014 21,622 views 2 Comments

In November I had the privilege of shooting the pattern photos for Louet’s Spring 2014 collection. Mari of Stitchcraft Marketing flew up from North Carolina and acted as stylist and photo assistant. It was a particularly tricky shoot to wrangle around the weather and backgrounds. It was November in Boston but most of the trees were bare of leaves so we could pretend it was early early spring before the trees were budding. (At least I hope that’s how it looks.) We shot on the Esplanade along the Charles river over two days. The first afternoon with our model Rebecca was fantastic. It was warm enough for shirt sleeves without goosebumps and we took advantage shooting next to the water for an “I’m off to the yacht club or to have a drink on the dock” kind of feeling.

We found this willow tree with yellow leaves that looked shockingly springy.

And Rebecca was charming, as always.

I got to put some photoshop skills to the test when this dude in an orange jacket walked into frame.

Now you see him…

The next day we were not as lucky. The temperature dipped well below freezing and the wind was fierce. Our poor model Doran toughed it out though. You’d never know by looking at these photos that her teeth were chattering between outfit changes.

We did our best to keep her in a coat and scarf until the last minute and then woomph, she’d throw off the coat and managed to look happy in spaghetti straps while the wind howled all around her. She’s a tough cookie!

    I’ve been assistant on below-freezing outdoor shoots before, too, and it definitely makes me appreciate that models are _working_. They have no body fat to keep them warm and yet rarely have I seen one who did not pull it together when the camera was aimed!
