Let me start by saying that Kim is 100% responsible for all the adorableness that you’re about to see below. She came up with the idea for a Fantastic Mr. Fox themed shoot, and then put together/made/brought the most adorable props in all of the land. We picked the spot. She drove out to meet us with literally a car trunk full of stuff that she made (this is the second time we’ve worked with Kim, and I can confidently say she’s one of the craftiest people I know besides my own mother). Then we stuffed as much as we could into a rolling red wagon and took it into the forest and (carefully) down some steps (thanks, Geoff!) and then set up camp (literally) in the woods.
At that point, Geoff set to work making a tent out of some blankets thanks to his a+ Boy Scout skills, while Blue put on a fox mask and immediately became the most adorable child I’ve ever seen. At one point there was an adorable blue beret, and there were lots of (really excellent!) Polaroids taken of us by Blue, all while his mother looked especially fabulous while hanging out in the woods (she looks 100% better than I do 100% of the time). Blue is a wonderfully polite, incredibly smart, and obviously adorable young man. His mother asked, “Can you tell Carolyn and Geoff what we’re wearing today?” and he responded with, “Our smiles” and the woodland creatures everywhere erupted into a collective “Awwwwwww!!!” At the end we got ice cream, and I think Roald Dahl and Wes Anderson would approve.
