Dosed

Behind the Scenes of Dosed

It was cold, dreary, snowy, and worse for this shoot!  The snow was pretty deep, but thanks to our recent Arctic Vortex (which would be an awesome name for a Swedish speed metal band), it was frozen pretty solid.  Not solid enough to hold me up, but it kept Kayla and Aubrey from sinking in too badly.  My knees were frozen, as I was kneeling in the slushy top layer of snow (it had snowed a couple of inches of wet snow during the day).

Anyhow, Kayla was an amazing model, as usual.  I really need to work with her more often.

Thank you to Aubrey Castleberg for capturing some behind the scenes photos!

POTD: Dosed

Kayla and I had been trying to organize a shoot for my Dreams series for quite a while.  We had several conceptual options that we had discussed, but for one reason or another, we were never able to make any of them happen.  Finally, this week, despite scheduling and weather almost getting in the way, we finally made it happen.

Kayla was awesome, standing tough in snow and ice pellets and windy conditions to make a photo that I love.  I know it was horrible because I was dressed well for the weather, but kneeling in the snow to get the shot was absolutely horrible.  I couldn't complain, however, because I wasn't the one wearing a sun dress on a typical Wisconsin winter day.

This is Dosed.
