"Renoir" Civil War Photo Shoot with Eras of Enchantment

Last October I had the opportunity to shoot with one of my regular, gorgeous models, Liza. You might remember her from our Gibson and Astoria shoots last year.

This shoot was special, though, featuring Liza and her two sons, Julian and Nevan, all in the clothing that would have been worn in our local area in the 1860s. So often we have trouble finding locations here in Northern Nevada that could pass for Europe or New England. It was nice this time to be able to use the beauty of our high desert landscape in correct historical context.

  1. Oh my. I love it!! She is so beautiful, her dress is lovely, and those kiddos are adorable!!
    I am rather partial to Renoirs, especially since I'm the proud owner of a pair... ;)
    On a somewhat related side note, I did finally post the pictures of my 1860s ruffle-icious gown.

    1. Thank you! I'm glad you like the Renoirs. Your dress came out splendidly and you've inspired me to do some more work on my own 1860s stuff...to the sewing machine!
