Behind The Dress: January

you can view the full shoot from The January Dress here


Today I’m sharing a full-behind-the-scenes video on my blog showing what it took to get the shots for The January Dress. I’ve decided that after launching the photos and time-lapse videos for each of my monthly dresses, I wanted to show a real look at the hard work that goes into getting the final image. My end goal in this series is to create a vision that I have in my head…but to accomplish that vision is not always glamorous.  Here is what it took to make The January Dress happen…..



And here are a few other shots that didn’t make it to the initial post at first… (you can see how deep my dress was sinking, but I actually love the cool effect of it deep down in the water!)
