Hoopin' on the Prairie

It was a perfect evening in late May when I photographed the gorgeous and talented Allison Slavik. Locally, Allison is best known as the hooping goddess for the Bad Weather Burlesque, the infamous Fargo-based burlesque troop that has literally dominated our little city in the last year. As part of an upcoming fundraiser, they are putting together a calendar of their lovely members (pin up style!) and I was so privileged to photograph Allison as Miss November. We tried to attain a very natural, autumn feel to these photos: think a beautiful pheasant hooping through the prairie. Allison's styling was spot on and we some how managed to find the most perfect light to photograph. I am so pleased with these photos and I'm excited to share them with you!
