This is a wonderful portrait that Peg took from our Alice and Wonderland Apocalyptic Shoot! The lake and tree in the background were so beautiful! And check out that lighting!
On September 18, the Picture This! Senior Models got together at Lake Lahontan for our Alice and Wonderland Apocalyptic photo shoot. I was so excited and it was a blast! We all met at Pegs's house dressed in our costumes to head out to the lake. Six cars with models carpooled together and we looked at the beaches to find the perfect spot for the shoot. We ended up choosing Beach 1 with a beautiful Cottonwood tree and the lake in the background. Everyone piled out of their vehicles and I finally got to see their full costumes for the shoot. I was even more excited than I was before, because the outfits were amazing. Senior Model Cora, aka the Red Queen for this shoot, was ordained in a red and black tutu, covered in glitter and gems. Amber, aka Alice, was in a beautiful blue dress and a cute little bow in her blonde hair. Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum, Jessica and Josh, showed up in striped knee high socks and suspenders. The one and only Mad Hatter was Jordan. His costume consisted of several layers and, of course, the infamous top hat. He even wore mismatched shoes to get into character. The Cheshire Cat was Vivian. Her knitted cat ears and striped leggings made the costume perfect. I was the White Rabbit and I dressed slightly formal with a pocket watch and bunny ears to top it all off.
After eating a few snacks, we all started to set up for the shoot. There was a beach table already on scene and we used a few card tables to create the Tea Party scene from the movie. Brightly colored table cloths and table trinkets were our main props. From cake trays and teapots to candelabras and leather bound books, we had a great collection of quirky stuff. Peg even brought real cupcakes and a red velvet cake to top it all off!
After everything was set up in a somewhat organized but slightly chaotic manner on the table, the seven Senior Models took their seats as Peg got the camera ready. She did some light testing shots and then started to really hone in on our creation. We all looked at the camera, then looked at Mad Hatter. It was so hard to be serious because our Mad Hatter kept making us laugh! A couple more shots and then the Cheshire Cat was climbing a tree. Vivian thought it would be a good idea for the Cat to be perched in the Cottonwood tree behind us. She sat above us all with the wide grin the Chesire Cat is known for and we all posed again. Then it was on to the individual shots.
Since Vivian was already in the tree, she went first. The Red Queen went next. Her high to low tutu was flowing behind her as Peg got a shot of her coming through the shrubs. Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum went next, The duo posed together for a few shots and then separate. Then it was Alice's turn. She posed with a blue glass bottle that said "Drink Me." just like in the movie! I went after that. Making sure my bunny ears were standing up, I looked at my pocket watch as Peg took a few shots. Last but not least, Mad Hatter went, mismatched shoes and all. After each of us had an individual photograph, the lighting was still good so we grouped up again with the lake to our back. All of us stood together as Peg captured our shots in the last of the good lighting. That was a wrap! The shoot was so much fun and the shots turned out great! It was time to get packed up and head home. We called it a night for our Alice and Wonderland Apocalyptic shoot!
