Vintage Trailer Remodel 1969 Orbit Post II

Nov

14

Last time the blog saw the vintage trailer remodel it was fresh from Craigslist! We had planned on taking our time with each aspect and blogging along the way. I had no idea how much time each detail would take. We also had very little time to complete each step.

We worked tirelessly for three weeks. The day of the shoot arrived and it was POURING down rain. The trailer had new floors, new walls, and no windows. We pushed minis back one week and I decided to never try something so ambitious for mini sessions again. The following week, we put in another all nighter and a handful of late nights. It was finally in good enough shape for minis! Clients who couldn’t reschedule were seen right away and every one else came the following week where we had MUCH better weather!

This was the state of the trailer a couple days before minis sessions! I was hoping to document the entire journey but we were in too much of a hurry. I will do a live answering everyone’s questions and talking about the process when we’re feeling completely done!

I am very proud of the copper trim! It added such a unique punch. The “almond” paint turned out allot more yellow than I was expecting but with the accent panels (photos to come) it looks amazing while staying true to the vintage charm.

We cut in SO many more windows! The natural light in here will be insane.

Broken sublimity. “I am because you wouldn’t have it any other way.” You, are not. I should have heard that. They weren’t an illusion on my mountain. They were fixed in the sky. A planet with gravitational pull that kept my feet on the ground. A united reality where I slept safely. A further joke […]

Becky booked Ethan’s Baseball Senior Photos with The Studio about a year before we were able to finally document them. I’m so happy we finally got together to document a special time for their whole family and especially Ethan! Becky and I first met when I photographed her and Aaron’s engagement photos at the Milton […]

We’ve officially been nomadic for 18 months and we find ourselves getting cozy in Lake Chelan, Washington for the summer! With two weddings remaining summer 2022, we’re preparing to leave the state, but not just yet. I feel the need to stay close to my couples around their wedding dates which puts us not traveling […]

Eighteen Months Nomadic

I’m celebrating. In a family suite at Little Creek. By a dreamy electric fireplace in dusk window light. There’s the sound of little boys watching cartoons in another room and Dinah munching food while I sip Grapefruit Pompelini. Clynn’s at a Poker Tournament. Laughing, I’m sure. Winning? Most likely. Dropping a hand or two out […]
