Close Shave

One of the fabulous things about living in a small town, is that you know all the small town people. If you are an extrovert like myself that means you know a lot of business owners too and you are not above asking favors of them. This happens to be true of Moe's Barber Shop in Vancouver. I asked Carrie, the owner to let me recreate a pin-up cartoon I came across and with the help of photographer Jeff Mawer we made the cartoon come to life. Toma was my co-super-model of the day, and I think he pulled off the perverted barber look quite well.




Here is the original image I found for reference and inspiration of this shoot.


I am so happy this photo shoot came together so well, and I am thankful for everyone who helped pull this off!

I think these are so funny, I think it's Toma's facial expression that does it. These are really great photos and you look beautiful.

I do love what you do here and have followed for years but calling Vancouver a small town!?! There are over 2 million people in the Vancouver metro.

Wonderful shoot, as always, you've got a gift.

Hi! I had been following your blog for a while, and for some reason no updates were showing up in my bloglist, so I just checked in after thinking you hadn't posted anything for 5 months.
Glad to see it's not the case at all, I love all the pictures in your last posts!
Cheers!
