This past Sunday I was lucky enough to be invited to a photo shoot at the Mendy house in Fort Lauderdale. From the minute I walked up to the house I knew it was going to be a great experience. The house is an old Mediterranean style structure with wood floors, fireplace, stucco walls and archways. The home has a very 1920′s vintage feeling. It was a great backdrop for period shoot of this genre.
The Mendy sisters, Erika and Tracy, made all the necessary arrangements for the models and providing this beautiful home for our shoot. The home’s interior is detailed to accomodate photo sessions such as this or any other theme that a photographer, or group of photographers may choose. Each room was furnished and accessorized with old-time props and the natural lighting was perfect. Makeup artists were on hand during the shoot to provide their finishing touches as per the photographer’s request.
The back yard of the house has garden paths and an old garage with great textured walls and old garage doors. The entire house and gardens were available to us for shooting. The models were beautiful and dressed in pin-up fashion and we all worked hard to get just the right pose. I felt like I was transformed back in time.
