midwest love

August 15, 2012 portraits

we started out with an idea for an americana themed stylized shoot.  well, it started this way… and it went that way… and this is how it turned out.  we shot britney & jarrod, owners of pirate ninja print shop, in a farmers’ field out in winnebago in three different styles all around the theme of a love story.

boy finds map.  boy shows up with flowers to give to beautiful girl.  girl feeds boy peanut butter & jelly sandwiches and bottles of cokes, wins his heart.  boy & girl play on rope swing and give little kisses along the way.  boy & girl have melty bomb pops on 90° day.  girl shows off new t-shirt design to boy.  boy shows off new pet chicken to girl.  boy & girl spend some time necking behind shed.  boy & girl live happily ever after.

in all seriousness, we had a blast with everyone involved in every aspect of the shoot.  we also learned a lot along the way.

oh, and if you love the midwest love shirt as much as we do and you want one, you have to head down to the city market this friday.  pirate ninja print shop will be unveiling this killer shirt.  enjoy.
