Okay, so I know I said I tried to stay away from a sexy mermaid, but when Shannon said she wanted to be a mermaid, I couldn't say "no." She's worked with me on so many of my concepts that doing a mermaid shoot for her was the least I could do as a thank you.
With her red hair, she's perfect for Ariel in the Disney version of "The Little Mermaid." We both love the same scene with Ariel singing on the rocks with the waves crashing around her. But, alas, we live in Michigan and an coastal ocean town would have those elements. Instead of recreating the scene, we went with just a beach and water look. We met early in the morning to capture the mist rising from the lake and the beautiful morning light.
