I spent part of the weekend making myself a beauty dish. Why? Because I wanted to do something with my son and I’ve been meaning to do the beauty dish thing for a while. It caused a lot of smoke in the kitchen, lots of noise and lots of paint fumes to create this dish, but it was well worth it. Today was the first day that we had available to use the new dish so Megan got together with Jo Ella who created a very dramatic look with very wild hair for us to shoot in Taylor today. It was way too cold but Megan is an incredible trooper and never said anything about the cold. Megan is the very best Trusty Sidekick ever! We love photographing downtown Austin, but parking is always such a pain that Taylor works out better when we are looking for that warehouse district look.
