In 2011 I did a shoot that was a circus shoot with my daughter Elle for a clothing company. I was thrilled with the way they turned out. I didn't get much of a variety because I was shooting in tight quarters and I just needed to get the shot. I loved what I got however. But because I didn't get a variety I really wanted to do another circus shoot. Then I read the book Night Circus and it struck a idea. I wanted to recreate the shoot but not with my daughter Elle but with someone else.
So I got Hailey. Hailey is a fabulous model in Salt Lake City and she liked my idea. So together with a fabulous hair and makeup team I was able to create these awesome images.
When it came to styling I knew exactly what I wanted. So I scoured ebay for days to find the right pieces. The pants were actually listed as beetlejuice pants and the jacket as a steampunk jacket. The top hat I found at a local vintage shop...and Hailey she provided the black heels.
When I was looking for a location I knew I wanted somewhere industrial rather than somewhere urban. So I started looking on the outskirts of Salt Lake and I found this awesome concrete plant...it would have been more awesome if I could have gone in the gates...but I couldn't so I shot on the outside.
I adore everything about this shoot. It may be one of my favorite shoots to date.
