It's always great to work with a subject who is willing to try things that may be slightly outside of her comfort zone. Elizabeth was just such a person. She was willing to try anything that Annette suggested. (Annette is the one with the ideas. I'm lucky to be allowed to follow her around!) Elizabeth tried anything from hugging a lamppost with weird paint, to climbing into a window, to spinning to get her skirt to twirl!
Here are a few pictures with the twirling skirt.
I takes a little bit of effort to get the skirt to swirl in a pleasing pattern and then the photographer has to be coordinated enough to catch it at just the right moment. You'll see what I mean in this sequence. The first one is an "almost", but not quite. I like the other ones. There were a lot of "misses" in between.
Notice the blue Adirondack chair in the background!
This one is my favorite, although it still needs a little work.
