Danielle from Stage Right Etc and I decided it would be fun to get another shoot out of the awesome DIY dress that she put together. So we set off for a road trip from Kelowna, BC down south. It rained the whole day but didn’t let that stop us. On a whim I pulled Danielle into one of my favorite second hand book shops to get out of the rain and it turned out to be an awesome backdrop! And of course we had to work the rain and mud into our shoot so we found a very large area full of grey mud and Danielle started running around jumping in huge puddles, rolling in the mud, while I tried to take photos while not slipping or sinking too far down in the mud, all the while holding an umbrella with one hand and shooting with the othe. “Why did I not bring an assistant to this shoot,” went through my head many times. haha. We also found a great field of purple flowers to take photos in as well as a gutted empty building that I’ve been wanting to shoot at for a couple years but never got around to driving down south to it. Overall- a really fun day trip scavenger hunt for good photos! Thanks for the fun day and countless laughs Danielle. ; D
Big thanks to Amrit Jonhson from La Casa Hair Lounge (on Pandosy in Kelowna ) for the awesome cut and dye job with Danielle’s hair!
The rare and elusive “Dani Bird.”
