Wednesday’s Child

January 15, 2013

Well today is a bit of an exciting day! Over school break, I did a Wednesday Addams-themed photo shoot for Flur Magazine, which came out today!

We shot at an abandoned farm place/area/not really sure what you’d call it, which I’ve blogged about before. This place never ceases to amaze me. It looks like the set of a horror film and you’d expect it to be in out in the boondocks somewhere down a dirt path in the middle of nowhere, yet it’s right across the street from Safeway, of all places (here’s an Instagram). And I’m pretty sure it’s abandoned, but there’s a cat that lives in one of the houses and every so often, I see a lady go inside to feed it. So maybe it’s not abandoned? Whatever it is, it has the most amazing eerie feel to it and it photographs really well and I just really really love it. The end.

Here’s the mood board I made for the shoot. As I mentioned, this shoot was inspired by Wednesday Addams and I wanted to capture that moody/dismal feel, but with a Lula aesthetic. So I guess you’d call it a refined version of a ‘haunted-fairy-doll-forest-nymph’ feel?

I’ve been feeling a shift in my style lately and this time, I just went with the flow. I channeled a different type of mood for this shoot (not my usual romantic girl in the meadow with fawns and unicorns in the background and whatnot) and I am really quite pleased with the results. Really really quite pleased. As in this is probably one of the shoots I’m most proud of ever. You can check out more images from this shoot on my website and on Flur Magazine.
