I can’t believe how quickly time has been going lately…it’s crazy! It seems like just yesterday we were calling for entries to our first (and not last!) Renaissance Studios’ Newest Muse contest…and here I am today posting our first teaser from the shoot that happened just yesterday. We weren’t going to release ANY of the photos from the shoot until they were all complete, but I’m so happy with how things are turning out I have to leak just one.
Amy Milligan, our Muse, was absolutely, hands-down, unbelievably one of the most amazing people to work with! She’s a riot, a ton of fun, incredibly gifted in front of the camera (which LOVES HER, by the way), and was up for the 8-hour photo-marathon over 100kms and oh….20 wardrobe changes….that we took her on (it felt like 15 minutes, to be honest). Without giving away the entire theme and idea behind her “Dream Photoshoot” (which was brilliant), I thought this one teaser helps to capture the essence of what is to come with the rest of this funny, cheeky, and nostalgic collection called “All Dolled Up”. We’re planning on launching the whole collection of about 30 images (which has some realllllly cool surprises in it within the next 3 weeks or so, on our new sister-site, theVanity. Stay tuned!
Many thanks go out to everyone who helped make this great shoot happen. Notably: Rina Ferguson (hair/makeup), Mary Leone (assistant), Amy Noelle Milligan (Muse with the Mostest!) and her ever patient hubby, Curtis (who will be moonlighting in a few shots as well), Terry Roper, featured here in the first of several shots you’ll see him in, and the Ferguson Household for…well, you’ll have to wait and see!…but in the meantime, for the homemade butter tarts and iced tea!
Stay tuned for details on our next Renaissance Studios’ Newest Muse contest, happening later this summer! Start thinking of ideas for YOUR DREAM PHOTOSHOOT!
