I stumbled upon the medic bag and “bugle” (it’s really a candlestick but works perfectly as a $3 find!) while antiquing and instantly envisioned this WWI/WWII-inspired shoot. I then picked up a genuine WWII C Co locker, die-cast Coca Cola plane, vintage binoculars, and pocket watch. Finally, I pulled my copies of Remarque’s “All Quiet on the Western Front” (a high school relic still on my bookshelf after 25 years) and a vintage “Plan de Paris” book to complete the scene. Once we were complete with wardrobe, casting call, and pup (sweet Olive), we ventured out near my home on a summer night. Nothing says innocent childhood like a boy and a dog. I love the soft colors and sweet fun we captured.
Based in Birmingham, MI, I am an award-winning lifestyle, children’s, and fashion photographer since 2005.
