This week while casually scrolling through my feed, I happened upon a post from Michaels Arts & Crafts Store:
WHOA NOW. A corporate retailer telling me its alright to come use their merchandise in a photoshoot, without a release, without question? I'm there.
I called one of my favorite models and we shot straight to our nearest Michaels Store. Prepared for a little backlash, I made sure to keep this permissive post pulled up on my phone just in case. But to my surprise, as Adrienne nuzzled into the floral garlands, an employee came over to ask us if we were doing the Michaels Photo Challenge and swept up the floor for our shoot!
It was a fun alternative to standing out in the cold and shivering our way through a nature session. Here are some of my favorites:
I'm still blown away that I was able to create some magical portraits in a congested silk flower aisle. Thank you, Michaels, for supporting photographers and creativity doubtlessly. #michaelschallenge accepted. 🌸
