Introducing Sarah aka my 'Suzanne'.
As stated in part one, this is a photo session based on the song "Suzanne" by Leonard Cohen.
The location had to be by a river, and Sarah new this lovely spot on Waipa Mill Road.
Danielle Sutton from our beauty team, did the make up. Rosie Leask, a landscape photographer from The Mount, also came to have a play.
I loved Sarah's bubbly personality and her loving and playful relationship she had with her husband. They did so well playing out the scenes from the 'Suzanne' song.
This session gave me a chance to play with different editing techniques. Here are the final images I choose to edit - The song lyrics on which the photo was based is above the images.
"And you want to travel with her and you want to travel blind"
"You know that she's half crazy, but that's why you want to be there"
"Now Suzanne takes your hand and she leads you to the river"
"She is wearing rags and feathers from Salvation Army counters"
"and she feeds you tea and oranges that come all the way from China"
"while Suzanne holds the mirror"
Thank you my 'Suzanne', you did wonderfully.
