In 2017, I decided to begin my annual tradition of halloween-inspired styled shoots. Fall is my favorite time of year, and I love how we can turn an ordinary Iowa backdrop into a spooky scene.
Pulling this off, we were complete amateurs—don’t look too closely at the skeleton hand bones, or you’ll see this skeleton has more than a radius and ulna. But the overcast skies added to the eery atmosphere. I remember feeling completely frozen when we were finished, so Kelsey and I stopped for hot cocoa and cider at our favorite local coffee shop where her skeleton makeup startled more than one person.
My goal is to continue creating halloween-inspired shoots every year as a creative challenge to push me and my talents and collaborate with fun artists and creatives. Just wait til you see what 2020 has in store.
For now, enjoy the premier spooky season styled shoot: “haunted: a skeleton in an iowa cornfield”
