The Traveling Dress Collaboration is a brilliant creative project brought together by several photographers within the Motherhood Society (Beauty & Lifestyle Mommy Magazine‘s endorsed professional motherhood photography communication). As elite creatives, each photographer was impressed with one another’s different photography and editing style and they decided to celebrate different women, all from different ethnicity, different stages in their pregnancies and in different settings, using the exact same dress to make their unique visions come to life. Each photographer had one single week with the dress, a custom design from Sew Trendy Accessories; styling the dress with their own creative vision and shooting it with their own style, before mailing it off to the next person.
To avoid creatively influencing the vision of one another, the participating photographers agreed to refrain from sharing the images until each of them had the opportunity to shoot with the dress and submit their images for publish in the magazine. The dress traveled around the United States between eight participants, each very different in shooting style and artistic voice, we are so excited to share this collaboration with you!
Getting the Dress
I was the second photographer to get this dress and let me just say…..when I opened this box I was blown away. The first thing I saw was this gorgeous sky blue color. Blue rain, it is officially called. Wow!! I pulled it out of the box and it was stunning and fit for a princess. The cut and style is truly one of my favorites and so flattering. I could not wait to get my mamas in it and in front of my camera.
A few weeks before I had put out a model call for 2-3 expectant mamas that might be interested in being a part of this. There were only a couple of things….they had to be ok with waiting though for the pictures because it was top secret until everyone had a chance to have the dress and they had to wait to see the images as well. They had to wait and be surprised just as much as everyone else. Although I may have shown a quick peek at the back of my camera once or twice. LOL
Each of the mamas for this project brought something special and unique and I had a vision for what I wanted with each session. Cami modeled for me inside and Marisa and Sarah were outside at one of my favorite parks near my house. The weather was perfect for these sessions and each gal looked amazing in the dress. It really showed me that this dress (and all of Sew Trendy’s dresses) are so well made and can fit some many different types of bodies. The warmth and beauty of these three gals really just made me love my job even more than I already do. Take a peek at some images from their sessions.
