Jack made us promise that we wouldn’t blow the surprise of his Halloween costume (which he picked himself) this early, so we’ll still have a Halloween post coming. But we just couldn’t sit on these ones… so it’s a pre-Halloween blog!
This is officially the fastest “conception to execution” of a shoot like this we’ve ever had. On Sunday afternoon, Dorothy and I were talking about sugar skulls, and she wanted to paint her face like that. We went to the store and got our supplies on Monday, shot on Tuesday. When it’s right, it’s right!
Dorothy really got into this Dia de los Muertos idea… she even suggested a lot of the poses you’ll see in this blog! I know, I know… we’re in SO much trouble with this beauty. 🙂 I had never done anything like this kind of makeup, so I was super nervous I wouldn’t be able to pull it off. I think it turned out pretty amazing, though!
I’m so grateful that Mack dives with me into my half-crazed ideas, and that he’s so wicked talented… these images are so much more than I dreamed they would be. My very favorites of Dorothy and I EVER!
