Later, I thought it'd be nice to extend the fun by offering my tail to others. Oops... that doesn't sound right. :-) I decided to let you guys borrow the mermaid tail for your own photoshoots. Megan Mae took first crack at it, creating a badass sea witch. Her idea is smart and reflects her unique personality.
Now, my BFF Jen is taking the tail in a different direction. Jennifer lives down South in Georgia. She took the tail to the beach. What a perfect, natural setting for a mermaid! Shooting at the beach was my first impulse but the difficult logistics of an outdoor photoshoot in public were too daunting for me. Jen, however, has the able assistance of her husband Jason (and little girl Juniper) so they were able to jump this hurdle. Plus, I secretly think Jen is braver than me. When I visited Jen and her family last March, she impressed me like few people have.
The results of Jen's photoshoot are fabulous! Doesn't she look terrific? Jen has an obviously-full basket of natural feminine beauty which boosts the pretty mermaid concept into something extraordinary. And you can tell from Jen's top-notch hair and makeup here that she put lots of effort into the photoshoot. I respect that. Modeling and photography are hard work.
Seeing people take my initial idea and craft it into their own creations makes me smile big-time. Who's next?
