Went out to do some final shooting in the golden cottonwoods. (I always say it's 'final shooting' for this project, but things just seem to creep in somehow. I've added so much to the project, I don't know it will ever end unless I stubbornly limit myself only to the scene cards I already have.)

Moving towards a close to the shooting portion of Project Insectae: Human | Nature.
This morning, I was fortunate enough to have access to a great old church to shoot some of the Moth funeral preparation scenes.
So grateful to my lovely moth and butterfly ladies, who graciously agreed to meet on this cold Sunday morning, even bringing an assistant (!) who was very helpful :)
I am seeing some light at the end of this project, at least for the principle shooting. It has been a fun project and has given me much inspiration over the past two years. I am looking forward to the editing, narration and music, all of which will come next. Revisiting all of the footage taken over the past 24 months is an exciting, if not daunting, task.
I am so excited to give you this sneak peek at the most recent addition to my Creature Couture line: the Sphinx Moth!
Using photographic prints on fabric, I am now able to better recreate the magnificent complexity of our insect companions in the costumes. This technique also lends itself well to the printing of flowers and plant life for beautiful flower-fairy inspired garb.
The costume pictured here is a commissioned piece, part of a set, for a family portrait. These are examples of the types of costumes that can be created for your own unique photo shoot. I am happy to create something magical just for you, or you can rent a costume for use during our shoot (or to wear to your grand event...). Visit my Creature Couture page for details.
Additional info and pricing to follow soon. (Plus photos from the family shoot for which these costumes were custom designed - Mama + Papa moth, child yucca flower, baby yucca seed pod!!!)
