So a couple of weeks ago, a friend of mine sends me an email which basically says, “Hey, Julie, I’ve got to go to a photo shoot in Chicago and I’ve got some ideas I want to mess around with… mind if I experiment with you?”
“What kind of ideas?” I asked.
She then went on to explain that she planned on fashioning a red ball gown out of some dollar store plastic tablecloths, some twine and some blue crepe streamers. She figured if she threw in some make up, shoes and a set of false eyelashes, she’d be good to go.
What I heard: “Hey, Julie, let’s do a photo shoot for Jenny’s Traveling Red Dress series.”
What follows are a selection of shots from that day. I thought I was helping a friend. Turns out, she gave me the greatest gift possible. For one whole day, I felt positively beautiful.
Thank you, Eva.
