The Ice Queen Cometh

“Her eyes are pure stars, and her fingers, if they touch you, freeze you to the bone.” — Virginia Woolf, Orlando

Oh Virginia! I hoped to have SOME snow on the ground to photograph this concept session, but no, we didn’t get any real snow until the first days of Spring. I do love Virginia but sometimes her mood swings are a bit much!

I thought of this photo session while walking through Hobby Lobby (of course) to buy props for the Woodland Witches Halloween photoshoot. I saw these fake plastic diamonds throughout the Christmas section–which of course was already out in September–and decided at that moment I needed to create an Ice Queen photoshoot. You can ask my daughter, who also got roped into modeling for it at the last minute!

I spent months planning outfits and headpieces for my senior models to wear in the studio. I have too much fun creating headpieces and creative costumes. I can’t get enough of these photoshoots! Seriously, if you have an idea let’s make it happen in addition to your regular senior photoshoot.

Some models could not make it at the last minute (it was Thanksgiving weekend) but Alexis, Sarah, Lizzie and Juliet totally rocked it! If you knew these young ladies then you’d know they’re no ice queens but they are amazing young women that I’m honored to know!

Seriously I think if I could find a job where I created costumes for these photoshoots I would be in heaven. Other fun ones: Masquerade Party; Steampunk; Gatsby; Hunger Games; Peacock; Burning Man; and Entourage.

As I go out of town to an area where there is always snow in winter–as it should be–I figured now would be the right time to post this session!
