Nevermore: An Edgar Allen Poe Inspired Shoot

June 28, 2018  •  Leave a Comment

Once upon a midnight dreary, while I pondered weak and weary...

 

I have been sitting on the idea of a raven inspired shoot for quite some time now and finally decided to carry it out. While the original scene I imagined in my head is not was eventually carried out, I did keep certain ideas and end results in tact. See my original idea was to be outdoor on a fall dreary day. Being that I didn't want to wait because I am super impatient we bumped it up and did it in the studio.

I frantically started to plan out and make the wardrobe for this shoot ( the best part of that is I now know how to make a tutu! ). A bunch of tulle and chiffon later, I had the skirt made for my 5'11 model. I then started on the headpiece and hit up the craft stores. I knew from the start that I wanted to incorporate a bird's nest. I wanted the headpiece to be simple and not overwhelming and the bird's nest to be the main focus. I then added just a few feathers, 1 flower and some wheat to tie it together.

With my creative partner in crime, Rachael, we scoured pinterest for makeup ideas. With Rachael being my makeup artist for this, we decided to go with a simple " mask and gloves " with feathers around her eyes and left everything else natural.

It was time for the actual shoot. With certain images I wanted planned in my head we got to work.

I was super pleased on the end result of this shoot. It couldn't have been done without the help of Rachael and my model who rolled with my ideas ( even though some of them might have sounded crazy ) with no clue of the vision I saw in my head.

SO with that, I present to you, Nevermore....
