This shoot took months to come together, but I am so glad I finally got the opportunity to work with Irene. As soon as I saw her portfolio, I knew she'd be perfect for a spritely character. We discussed shooting outdoors in the woods and I was leaning toward elf or dryad. Irene loved the concepts because these are characters close to her heart, too. She already had the elven ears, antlers, and she makes elven/dryadic jewelry. Our ideas meshed perfectly.
A big thank you goes to Irene's boyfriend for playing assistant for the day. He was a tremendous help from lugging the equipment around the park to helping navigate through untraversed areas.
