Project ~ Put A Bird On It

It's 2012 and what better way to start it off than with a personal project! My friend Ashlie and I are a little obsessed with a show called "Portlandia" and especially its take on the trend of putting birds on things and calling them art. Of the birds we put on Ashlie for this shoot, some of them we bought, some are family heirlooms and the one in her hair I made at midnight the night before because we needed just one more. Speaking of hair, it and the makeup were creations of the amazing Kendra Rose. My brother/assistant Mark went beyond his usual role of hauling gear and dispensing technical advise, to fetching coffee and food for the crew. I've learned the hard way, that food and caffeine might be the most important part of doing these kind of projects.
Such a fun shoot! I can't wait for the next!
