[Model Shoot] Jessica – The White Robe Series (7.26.09)

Posted in 2009, Color, Digital, Last Jackson Photoshoot Series, model shoot, Photo Post by William Patrick Butler on August 13, 2009

and the Last Jackson Photoshoot Series continues (and maybe concludes) with Jessica and “The White Robe Series”

so.  i’ve always wanted to shoot somebody during the “magic hour“.  but i didn’t want to do it in the evening.

of course, finding someone to wake up around 5-something in the morning so they can have a camera in their face around 6-something isn’t an easy feat to pull off.

luckly, Jessica is made of win 🙂

when i got to her house to pick her up, she came to the door still in her robe, and we both sat on the couch, trying to wake up a little bit more before setting off.

as we’re sitting Jess goes, “y’know *yawn* i don’t feel like getting dressed.  think we can just do the shoot with me in my robe?”

Me: “let’s do this.”

and off we went

[Model Shoot] Jessica @ Amite Building (7.20.09)

i’ve been really looking forward to posting these

so, my friend Jessica (who i’ve photographed before) is moving to Austin.

but, before she headed out we decided to have, what we came to call, “Jessica’s Last Jackson Photoshoot Series”.

so, like most photographers, i tend to scout places out in my free time or, if i just happen to come across a cool place i’ll file it away in my mental “gotta shoot here one day!” folder.

now, if you’re a “Scenes Around Jackson” veteren, you should know that, when we were shooting the Storage 24 music video we came across a cool, abandoned building that had just great light.  (scroll down a bit. the photos of us shooting in there are near the end of the post)

so, of course, i filed it away in that handy mental folder.

when me and Jess started making plans about were to shoot the conversation went a little like this (paraphrasing a bit…)

Me: sooooo…you up to breaking into an abandoned building in downtown jackson after you get off of work for our shoot?  we may or may not have to dodge some homeless people if they’re already in there.

Jess:  hell yeah!  i love abandoned buildings!  i have hats!

Me: excellent!
