So, our drop-dead gorgeous and totally amazingly accommodating friend Sarah agreed to be the Shoebox model for this summer’s photo shoot.
And by “photo shoot”, I mean that P-Hops, Tammers and I went to the alleyway behind my building with my Canon and giggled and took random pics and went mental.
Can you believe we got all this amazing photography within about 2.5 hours for FREE???
I do want to apologize to everyone because I was a basketcase trying to get the shots done before the sun went down. When I get down to business, I GET DOWN TO BUSINESS. Everyone totally put up with me, though. And we got amazing shots.
What made it really funny was that some other Queen West store had decided to use the same alleyway that night for another photoshoot. I WISH I had taken at least an iPhone snap of the outfits and set-ups they were using, because they were VERY DIFFERENT from ours.
There’s a motorcycle repair shop-slash-garage-slash-man-cave-slash-dirthole-shack in the alley behind my place, and they were photographing a chick in a LEATHER BATHING SUIT straddled on the back of a motorcycle wearing huge platform heels. Suffice it to say, the boys in the motorcycle repair shop were preeeeeeetty happy that night.
I also wish that I had taken some more shots of us behind the scenes taking the photos and giggling and laughing. We had a picnic lunch in the middle of my living room…
…and I had been kneeling on the ground so much to get the right angle for the photos that I had some maaaaaad blackened dirt stains on my knees. Like a slut. Blowie Nat.
All the help from Sarah and Tami was HUGE. You guys are the best. P-Hops and I love you.
YOU SHOULD COME.
