Modern Day Helen of Troy (Columbus) – Model Shoot with Anshea

Remember the story of Helen of Troy? The one about how a woman was so beautiful that men of two great nations fought a ten-year war over her?  To me, Anshea is the modern day version of that maddening beauty.

I met Anshea because she is my cousin’s sister-in-law, and soon learned we would be bridesmaids together in my cousin’s wedding (Congrats Kat & Gus!) I did not know that I would have to be standing next to her during the ceremony. Me, six months pregnant, and REALLY starting to feel it, and her this goddess of a human that looked somehow even more gorgeous as she wiped tears away from her face, as Kat and Gus said their “I do’s”.

Sigh. Sometimes life is really unfair 😉

Anyways, when Monty and I were brainstorming shoot ideas, I said, “I have the perfect person!” and quickly pulled up a photo of Anshea. Monty was stunned.

“Wait! I have seen her before! Does she work at….”

“Elm and Iron!” I quickly interrupted.

“I met her last week, she helped me in the store! I seriously thought about going back and asking her to model.”

So that was settled, we had to have her in this shoot.

I helped Anshea pick out three different looks for the photos. We choose a black dress with two different kimono style shirts that would be versatile and quick to change. A long rust and white striped maxi with sea foam jeweled earrings for a more dressed up look, and a lightweight navy maxi for a bohemian vibe.

We decided to shoot at Park of Roses: Without further ado here are the images from the shoot along with our behind the scenes video footage captured with our iPhones…
