What I love about this particular grouping of photographs is that they were unplanned. I wasn't even expecting to use this outfit for any part of the actual shoot; we were getting acquainted in my kitchen... Elizabeth scoped out my home for good lighting and backdrops while I hung around and drank my coffee; nervous, excited, calm, anxious, surrendering, offering help that I'm sure wasn't very helpful (i.e. learning to let go of control and trust the intensely gifted photographer that she is...) All of this led to these images, fueled by the artistic insight and deeply rooted knowing of Elizabeth's eye for all things lovely and authentic.
I do love my aprons. And these gold slippers... I really do wear them around the house. They especially add a boost of sunshine on cloudier days.
Thanks for looking! Until next time...
