Another dream realized. A few weeks ago it was sunflowers and last week it was the California State Fair. I have wanted to do a photoshoot at the fair for a couple years now, but you definitely have to have the personality to rock a session in the middle of hundreds of bystanders. Luckily Katelyn, my senior spokesmodel for Oak Ridge High School was totally up for it.
I love the fair–it really has a little bit of everything. Gorgeous gardens. Yep, they’ve got that. Bright, bold colors. Oh yeah, in abundance. Crazy carnies? Of course. Adorable vendors who supply you with teeny, tiny guitars (are those ukuleles?) as props? Yeah, he was there. I felt like a kid in the candy store during this session. There was a brand new backdrop at every corner, so many pockets of gorgeous light. Oh yeah, and thousands of people. Literally…thousands.
But I’m loving the way these images turned out. You really would have no idea how crazy chaotic it was (Note to self: don’t schedule sessions on dollar ride night at the fair). Katelyn was gorgeous and up for anything and was so much fun to hang out with. And my mom even joined us as my assistant and schlepped my gear around all evening–thanks Mom! All in all it was a perfect night at the fair.
