i was dreaming of a white christmas portrait
here in nashville, a white christmas comes once in a blue moon. so, i was extremely lucky to catch one during the year of us365, and one of my four sisters-in-law was the prime candidate for this shoot. she is an actress at heart, but she is usually behind the video camera directing obscure home movies... just a couple of months ago, i found myself walking a makeshift catwalk at the lakehouse in some crazy red, strappy dress... that is to say that she is extremely convincing as a director. here, she quickly slipped into performing for the camera after i shot a couple of regular portraits (it usually does take a good actress a minute or two to settle in to such a role). one of her largest grossing movies, "The Cruise Video" is already a cult classic (in the family).
