Something a lot of people ask me is how I deal with taking outdoor pictures in the winter, especially without a coat.
First, let me explain the lack of outerwear: my main winter jacket is this huge, puffy, gray behemoth that covers me up from my chin to my knees. It’s an absolute essential for Chicago winters, but I’m none too certain it would add much to the Mox & Socks aesthetic. I’ve been doing a lot of thrifting lately, though, so I should have some cute wraps to wear during shoots in the near future.
Second, there is something about these shoots that makes me forget I’m all that cold in the first place. Maybe it’s because I’m a winter baby, maybe it’s because I prepare myself with ANTM-style pep talks, but I think it’s something else. Whenever I take pictures, I melt away into the work. It’s rare for me to carry worries, aches and pains, sickness, or, in this case, a chill, into a shoot.
I’m guessing I’m not the only one who gets into the zone like this when it’s picture time. How do you guys feel when you’re doing an outfit shoot?
