A Summer Siren

Fairy

One may think of summer and only think about the sweltering heat. But let’s not forget the fun things summertime brings. Summer hangouts, warm evenings, dips in pools of water, fireflies, and vacations or sometimes just “staycations” from work or school. This summer has brought new acquaintances for me. I’ve had the pleasure of meeting some new folks and photographing them.

Early in the summer I had the pleasure of meeting a lovely lady named Haley. Haley goes to school with my gal pal, lovely photo assistant and main muse, Lashon. Lashon made the connection for Haley and me and we scheduled a photo shoot. Haley does modeling as well. It was a delight to photograph her and the three of us had so much fun! We shot for a long time and actually ended up doing about five portrait sessions in one with so many location and wardrobe changes. So I’ll kick off Haley’s photo series with one that made Haley look like a siren coming out of a beautiful pond. We even joked it reminded us of the sirens from the movie O Brother, Where Art Thou?

So get yourself mesmerized by these enchanting photos from part one of Haley’s photo series.

“The lunatic, the lover, and the poet, are of imagination all compact.”

 “I know a bank where the wild thyme blows,
Where oxlips and the nodding violet grows,
Quite over-canopied with luscious woodbine,
With sweet musk-roses and with eglantine.”

“Love’s stories written in love’s richest books.
To fan the moonbeams from his sleeping eyes.”

“Shall we their fond pageant see?
Lord, what fools these mortals be!”

“Four days will quickly steep themselves in nights; Four nights will quickly dream away the time;
And then the moon, like to a silver bow new bent in heaven, shall behold the night of our solemnities.”

“Love looks not with the eyes, but with the mind,
And therefore is winged Cupid painted blind.”
