Sparkling Danielle

Danielle met us at one of the amazing wine walks in downtown Fond du lac. When she was ready to do a session she messaged me to book her consultation. During her consultation Danielle browsed through our clothing in the Sparkle Wardrobe. She fell in love with our fur coats. The fur made her feel like a rich actress on the 80’s drama Dallas! To go with the fur coat Danielle picked out a strapless red dress. All of the other outfits Danielle brought in.

The fur coat shoot was so empowering. Danielle got into character so quickly! The fur coat gave her Cruella Deville vibes at times.

Now the best part of the shoot. Danielle was in lingerie on the chaise in the Jane of the Jungle set. Jodi was assisting that day and she was like we need fog. I’m not one to turn down a good idea…….. at least that is until the smoke detector went off. Jodi said my face turned white! The smoke detector is hard wired in. Even worse I didn’t have a ladder tall enough to reach it. No matter how much we waved blankets at this dam smoke detector it refused to give up! Thanks to Jodi’s quick thinking she was able to get a friend to stop by and help us. We piled wooden boxes on the chaise for him to stand on. He said I think if I pull this wiring out it will send a signal to the fire department. I yelled “Pull it!!!!” Thankfully the fire department did not show up and Danielle continued with her session!

Moral of the story. Don’t use a fog machine right under your smoke detector!

Sparkling Kathe

Two years ago today we opened the studio! I’m still in shock thinking we have made it two years! Prior to those two years we booked suites in hotels to photograph our clients. With having a new studio we needed a model to help build the new portfolio of new images. Kathe was one of our first models we photographed in 2020.

A year later Kathe brought her mom into the studio. They each had a boudoir session done. The best part is they got to experience having their hair and makeup done together.

This first outfit I was dying for her to wear. I asked Kathe if she would be ok with doing something more Pinup. Her sweet vintage heart was all in. The shoes for this session were from her personal collection. We had so much fun with this part of the shoot. At one point Terri Kathe’s mom yelled out. “She needs her cigarettes. Someone grab them!” It only added to the vintage nature of the shoot.
