Day 2 in Granbury was filled with exciting locations and great people. We had a full schedule and even fit in an extra shot. The crew was in sync and the results are amazing. Thank you Granbury, TX for being so welcoming. We are sad to leave, but our journey will continue as we head to Miles City, MT tomorrow to wrap of the rest of this adventure.
The first stop of the day, and where we spent our morning was Fall Creek Orchard. The Crisp family owns this orchard. They grow peaches, strawberries and blackberries. We met up with A.W. when we arrived and he helped us throughout the morning (and even filled a box of blackberries for us as a treat). Rows of peach trees became our first backdrop. The peaches will be ready for picking in about 6 weeks, but even now the trees were full and beautiful...all 700 of them!!
We grabbed some lunch at a local restaurant called Pearl Street Station for some BBQ and air conditioning. After lunch we made our way back to Granbury Live (an outdoor location from Day 1), but brought the shots inside in front of an American Flag. The theater had some great decor and worked great for casual looks.
Granbury Live is on the square in Granbury so we just took a short walk to set up a challenging location in front of the courthouse clock tower. To avoid some construction and traffic, we lifted our model Dani up in the air to get a different angle. With her umbrella for shade between the shots, it felt a little Mary Poppins inspired:) The photos really tell this story.
Keeping the with the downtown square vibe, we positioned model Marquita on a staircase backed with a brick wall nearby. The town was so accommodating to help us block the street for a few minutes to get the shots we needed. The casual outfit really stood out against the brick
After spending a few hours in the heat we were very excited to make it to the last shot of the day that cooled us down...Rinky Tink's Ice Cream Parlor. A 15 minute break to get a sweet snack was all we needed for a last burst of energy to end the day. We even had a few spectators, including Granbury's Mayor and his wife Janet. They had some ice cream with us and watched the action.
Model Dani was ready to dance to the classic juke box at the parlor in her fun blue ruffled dress. Large accessories complimented the outfit and it was a great way to end the day.
All of the photos taken in Granbury will be featured in the maurices Small Town Charm marketing starting August 1, 2010.
