A Splash of Green

Jo Rose, Local Burlesque Artist

“Don’t forget to take Jo her shirt!,” my wife would tell me every time Jo and I worked together. Jo had left the green, sheer, I guess “shirt?”, during one of our early shoots and it lived in the closet for about 18 months.

Every time I’d shoot Jo my wife would tell me the same thing and every time I’d forget. When it came to scheduling our latest session I was determined to not forget, going so far as to set a reminder on my phone.

Here’s how the session started.

“Hey, look! I finally remembered your shirt!”

“I don’t remember owning that shirt.”

Ok, maybe you had to be there. The point is that we recovered from our bout of sartorial awkwardness and incorporated it into our session, with the result being the photo above. We also incorporated her glasses for the first time, which are adorable on her.
