Picture of the Month – July 2005
Maria makes yet another appearance in a picture of the month, her fourth one this year. She is wonderful to work with and I never fail to get great pictures from our photoshoots. Several years ago I saw this rhinestone bra and thought it would be cool to photograph. At the time I had no idea how I would use it, but I knew it would take just the right model to wear it, since the cups aren’t flexible like most bras. So like Prince Charming I went on a search, only it wasn’t a glass slipper that had to fit just right. By the time I met Maria, I had the concept of the magician in my head, but I had to find the other props for the picture as well as find the rest of the costume. It finally all came together this month. Originally, I was going to use our pet rabbit in the photo, but she has since passed away. So instead we used a stuffed animal version, which was probably a lot easier to photograph, and it looks just as cute.
