They have an awesome creative team who had a plethora of quirky ideas for the shoot. One of which involved their staff throwing handfuls of buttons at me. Needless to say, none of the "raining buttons" photos made the cut (probably because they couldn't find a single image without me flinching as if I'd been struck with a sudden case of Tourette's).
We tried shots from this angle and that, with a hat and without, looking down, looking up, pretending to put on a button, funny faces, straight faces, laughing, smiling, biting a button between my teeth - I was up for anything, so long as it didn't entail a nude photo shoot with a few buttons oh-so-cleverly placed (as one friend suggested).
It was a wonderful (PG) experience and I'm so flattered to be featured in such a great publication. So, go get you a copy of the April issue of Charlotte Magazine... before my mom goes and buys them all!
