I began photography as a writer. Every session I shoot carries with it a story – sometimes big, sometimes small – that I’m trying to tell through the images in the session. Sometimes I get the story into one image, and sometimes I will build a story with many images.
This little session began with a gown, a house, and a little bit of fun with my amazing and brilliant friend Laura Tremaine, back when she was Hollywood Housewife, before she joined the Sorta Awesome Podcast and launched her Smartest Person in the Room podcast. We were just playing around with her blog title and spoofing on the idea of what a blogging “Hollywood housewife” might be up to on a given morning. This one has been hidden for a long time awaiting a publication (that never happened), but I think it’s time to bring it out into the light.
This mischievous little lifestyle session is about all the fun things that can happen when you give your home (whatever it is!) a chance to be a part of you. Here, Laura invites the viewers into her world with her super-fun approach to her own perceived reputation and breaks it down with her own grace, beauty, and laughter as she plays “dress-up” for the camera – a game no girl ever really outgrows.
