On our wedding day, Kristi helped make us look the best we had ever looked, and probably the best we ever will if we’re honest. We wanted to do something over the top for her. She is not a traditional girl by any stretch, quite the opposite. When we began discussing the concept behind her maternity shoot, she was very clear that she wanted it to be inspired by the films of Wes Anderson. I was thrilled! How perfect for her. We began the process of finding the perfect location. Where we wound up was at the personal home of the legendary Chick Austin. This historic home houses the original Asolo stage and the only known nude painting of Bette Davis. When Hayley and I received the tour of the home, she teared up here and there. It couldn’t have been a better fit for the feel we were going after. Kamila Wysocka of Makeup SRQ did another stunning job with Kristi’s makeup, flawless.
Kristi Flannagan was transformed into this uncanny, maternal, sultry Wes Anderson inspired badass female. Every time I work with her, I so appreciate her willingness. She is present and soulful, and only wants to make the best work that we can make together. Chris and Beatrix rolled it all together with the family shots. We were submerged in our element for this shoot. I am over the moon with the results of this work.
