I’ve been brainstorming ideas and ways I can help you document your story no matter what it is … I want to tell your story. Here are a few to start off with …
I was engaged about 6 years ago and then removed myself and my son from the relationship because it was becoming volatile and unhealthy. I still have the stupid wedding dress I purchased. I’ve tried to sell it with no luck, so there it sits at the top of my closet. At first I was hesitant and slightly disgusted at the thought of putting it on, but concluded that this was a much better use for it!!! It was like giving it a second life! Like a Phoenix rising from the ashes! Like making lemonade out of a lemon!
Now, my next plan is to do a “Trash The Dress” session with this dress of mine!!
Planning is in the works!! 🙂 Stay tuned for that one 😉
So, here’s one idea … LET’S DO A TRASH THE DRESS SESSION WITH YOUR DRESS!! 🙂 It could be something beautiful … near a shallow body of water, with your husband, something sexy–like him peeling the shoulder down or unzipping it–without nudity of course 😉
And another idea … Maybe you are divorced and still love your dress … well, we could do something similar to the Idea #1. Or maybe you still have the dress and want nothing to do with it — LET’S TRASH IT!! It could involve paint or whatever else we come up with! 🙂
Something not photography related — If you are done with and don’t know what to do with it, you could donate your wedding dress to charity. I was informed of a beautiful organization that makes beautiful gowns for babies who are born angels or pass away shortly after birth. They are located in River Falls, WI. You can discover more on their website http://www.halosofthestcroixvalley.com/
To see this guy (Chad Fish is his name) and the session he did, click HERE! I would sooooo love to do this for someone!! What women wouldn’t find it sexy seeing her husband or boyfriend doing chores around the house??!! 😉
But you are probably thinking, “I can take these kinds of photos with my cell phone”.
In turn I then ask you, “But are you blowing up and printing those photos??” I know I don’t.
When you have your photos taken by a photographer you are getting these images in high resolution form to be printed in what ever size you want!! And something else special about having a photographer to take these types of photos for you… YOU GET TO BE IN THEM TOO! My son will be so grateful to have these memories to look back on. Hell, I will be happy too!! Here are a few (ok maybe more than a few) images I’ve captured that I find to be extraordinary in the ordinary day … that tell the story of my child’s childhood and our relationship 🙂
These are just a few ideas to get you started 🙂 I plan to come up with more to share with you all. I hope you will consider documenting something or someone meaningful to you.
