This beautiful sister of mine is going away for a year, first to Thailand and then to Holland to be a nanny of 4 little kids! I wanted to do a shoot that was sort of vintagey, and that also symbolized her leaving…
We met last Saturday, despite the POURING rain, at the Abbotsford airport. We found a dry spot to shoot at first, by this great old Conair building. I love the way the dark dress and bright suitcases pop against the white! I had searched online before the shoot for vintage magazines, and when I found these two images I thought they were perfect. ;) The windmill, of course, since Arianna’s heading to Holland…and the FART magazine since that cover was both vintage and about airplanes. Obvious choices right?! :D (FYI: FART stands for Fashion, Art, Rhythm and Technology! ;))
Hello there, gorgeous!!
Then…we ventured out into the deluge…and took some of my favorite pics ever! I was completely drenched and bedraggled. Laying on wet concrete (to get that second shot below, for instance), and juggling an umbrella to try and protect my camera while shooting is not something I’d want to do on every shoot, but I’d like to think it was worth it! :) I loved the way this Canadian plane represents Arianna: a proud (and need I add, hot) Canadian. (Holland might be a great experience, but she IS coming back. Because we said so.)
Looking rather fine, sister dear. :)
Oh dear!! All that shooting, and she missed her flight! ;) (Something that has, actually very recently, happened to Nan.)
Thanks for humoring me and frolicking in the rain with me Arianna. Love you, baby sis, and will miss you next year! xoxox
