I had the idea for this shoot somewhere at the beginning of 2018. I thought about creating the part of the Cinderella story where the spell had already broken after Midnight, and the carriage turned back into a pumpkin and shattered into pieces. I hadn’t seen anyone create this part of story photography wise before. However, it pumpkin season was already over and done with. So I have waited all year for Fall to come around again so I could smash “real” pumpkins instead of photoshopping them in. My model really did lay in a pile of pumpkin guts that were still quite fresh and sticky. She was a trooper!
Hope you enjoy!
