“Aphrodite is her name. She is my golden goddess of love, beauty, pleasure, and procreation. I started planning this styled shoot months ago. I was dreaming of a beautiful, golden mermaid, sunbathing in the warmth of the sun. I had to make this dream a reality!
I started by designing a couture mermaid costume on paper. Then shopped and shopped for the perfect fabrics, as I was hand making everything. From the head piece to the tail, it was a lot of blood, sweat, and tears. Being from Colorado, I knew I would have to travel to find the body of water that would fit this look – which brought me to Lake Superior in Minnesota.
This little bit of lake shore was perfect for my sunrise photoshoot. The golden light compliments her beauty so perfectly! I spent a little over an hour applying makeup and adding hair extensions to get that mermaid look. I am thrilled with it all came together so perfect. Not to mention a gorgeous day and stunning model!”
