OH MY GOSH!!!!!
I knew this month was going to be a favorite when we started planning, but y’all… When I got these dresses and these women in front of my camera I just lost it. It’s ABSOLUTELY my favorite. Sorry January through July. I love you too, ya know. SO MUCH. But these August girls and these pin-up style dresses are my freakin’ favorites. The colors. The makeup. The patterns. The fabric. All of it. I love it so much.
One of my favorite things about this project is the contrast between each month. From moms and daughters to Betty Crocker to weddings… In July we rocked some Harry Potter with the younger gals and this month is so edgy and sexy… I just love it. When we started talking about models for this month, we had three that had signed up that we knew would be perfect [Beth + Pamela + Chelsea] but we needed a fourth, so I contacted Olivia and she was excited to step in and join us. Unfortunately Chelsea had a family emergency the weekend of the shoot, so she wasn’t able to join us but luckily Beth was able to hop right into her dress and pull off both looks!
You guys. These girls showed up, man.
All three of these ladies mean so much to me in their own way and I loved working with them. Also, having another photographer in front of my camera always makes me so anxious but I love when that photographer is Pamela because she just brings the heat every single time.
Jodi continues to amaze me with these dresses. I have loved this project so much and I’m so thankful to have been a part of it. One of my favorite things about it is the social aspect. It’s cool to just sit around and kick it with some new ladies every month for a few hours… Getting to know each other, stepping out of our normal routines and getting fancy… It’s so much fun!
