April has been a busy month this year with three back to back to back shows. First we started at Prado then Heritage Square Museum and this past weekend Mariposa CA.
On April 6-7th we were in Chino, CA celebrating out year anniversary for the Civil War Circuit. Last year I attended the event with my dark box on my mobile cart and just asking re-enactors if I could photograph them. The positive response I received last year prompted me to attain a tent and start frequenting the Civil War and other living history events.
On April 13th we traveled to Los Angeles to celebrate the Fashion Show and Tea at the Heritage Square Museum. I have always dreamt of shooting at this location and I did! It was amazing to see these houses and all of the incredible work the volunteers put into restoring and reviving the history of the houses. Nothing I can identify more with the longing for things to be the way they once were and amongst the volunteers we met some amazing people who shared out passion of the past. Very thankful to have had the opportunity to be apart of the show and can not wait for next year!
Finally, we just wrapped up the Civil War event up north in Mariposa, CA. A very busy weekend tucked away in the mountains forty-three miles away from Yosemite. A gorgeous an authentic looking setting. We left the backgrounds at home and opted for the scenery of mountains and lush trees. Had an amazing time and a big thank you to all the other sutlers and reenactors for such an amazing time.
The studio has been super busy preparing for our last shows before we shut down in the summer. Our next show will be at the end of May at Roaring Camp in Felton, CA. Also the application process for University of Riverside is fast approaching! Which means times to build and strengthen my portfolio. Can not wait to go back to school to finish my B.F.A and pursue my M.F.A.
Thank you and we look forward to May!
