that teenage feeling / by LD

As I mentioned a couple of days ago, I had a ha-uuuuuge photo shoot this weekend. I suppose the production of it wasn't that huge, but this shoot has been in the works for a year, as Bonnie and I sat on my couch on Memorial Day 2007 and hatched a plan for a shoot that would incorporate a myriad of elements (among them, fog), and a whole slew of people. Well, the time finally came and after months of planning and ironing out logistics, we gathered in the LBC, ate some pizza, drank some beer, made some music (there were, I'm not joking, 8 guitars in our house at one point tonight. EIGHT.), and took some pictures.

Before I move ahead, I need to thank a few very, very important people who made this shoot possible: Jessica, my hair/makeup guru, Jody, my stylist and designer (check out Kathleen's dress. That, my friends, is a Jody Dailey original. No sewing, just draping and pins.), my models: Kathleen, Ashley, Jon, Josh, Tyler, and Erik, and my number one assistant, Mike. Without these kids, my life would not be complete and my photos would be sort of dumb. 

So thank you, everyone.
