The Traveling Dress Project: Heidi & Israel

The Traveling Dress project I participated in earlier this year was so much fun, that when I bought this dress from the online boutique Three Bird Nest, I knew it was time to do another round of the traveling dress. This time I organized it myself, with a few photographers I know, and some new faces all across the states. As I type this post, the dress is currently in Michigan and going to a self-portrait session. EEEEEEK! I can't wait to see what all the other photographers do with it! Its such a functional dress (with pockets! Holla!), and easy to style. 

When it came to choosing models, I knew immediately that this dress was meant for Heidi to wear. With her gorgeous red hair and skin tones, it was a match made in heaven. Luckily for me, she also has a very photogenic boyfriend who happily agreed to come along for the session. Together they were dream models - it helps that they are both in the acting business and comfortable taking direction. I will say this though: when a couple also has amazing chemistry, direction is so minimal and barely necessary!
