When you are married to a guy like Eric you learn to expect the unexpected. Weird projects and opportunities often fall into his lap and sometimes I am included in the adventure.
Last week Eric was asked to do a photo shoot for the upcoming Ghost Tours that our town does this time of year, a way to get people to check out some of our amazing historic sites and homes. I was asked to be the ghostly model. We agreed.
When the night of the shoot came we realized we'd forgotten to arrange for a sitter, and my parents were busy, so we brought the girls along. When we arrived at the Bishop House I was given some period clothes that were a bit too big and some period shoes that were small (I have giant feet, for real), but we made it work. I put on a veiled hat. Eric and the others set up moody lighting and a few different shots.

Since Eric and I have been working together for so many years we have it down. The photo shoot took almost no time at all and the end results were great!
Here I am at the shoot, please note that this is not the ghostly shot, just a standing around shot.
While I can't show you my finished images yet I can show you Cordelia's. She wanted to be made to look spooky too so Eric was happy to oblige her.
