isn't she lovely?


One of the more popular assignments that I gave when I taught high school art was to "replicate" a photograph from a magazine layout or advertisement. The students really enjoyed using each other as models and I loved seeing their interpretations of famous photos. This weekend Loopy and I did the same thing, using Sarah Jessica Parker's ad for Lovely perfume as our inspiration.
























I almost can't tell the difference between Loopy and SJP herself!





Okay... I think Loopy is cuter. I really do. Sorry, SJP.

Don't fret! You're married to Ferris Bueller, after all! Plus you have all that soft-box light around you. We only have the natural light outside against some black fabric. Good thing we also have access to Photoshop.

Too funny, I just finished watching "Footloose" and here are your photos!! SJP looks really young in that movie. I love # 9, 12, 15 of Loopy. She is stunning. That dress sure is working out well for a lot of things!! Great job again Saucy! It reminds me that I really should be taking more shots of my girls!

Lucky Loopy! She (& your grandkids?!) will have a wonderful portfolio to look back on when she's older!

These pictures are STUNNING!

They are both gorgeous--but I also lean towards Loopy for the prize:)

Loopy looks absolutely beautiful and your photographs are exquisite. What a glorious time the two of you are having.

She looks STUNNING in these shots!! What fun you 2 are having!! So you actually look these outside infront of a black backdrop?

Starshine said...

Very fun art project! I love that The Fan's prom dress gets so much air time at your house!!! :)

Angela said...

I am at all once agog! Simply lovely.
Loopy, you are incredibly beautiful - your Mom brings that out in you.

How gorgeous! What an amazing portfolio Loopy is building, and what great memories with her mom.

Christina said...

You've inspired me to buy a magazine ( I never buy magazines)and try this with one of my kids. Loopy is gorgeous and you did a great job with the photos.

Rosa said...

Loopy is beautiful! Love that dress. The one with the back and the feet is absolutely lovely. I adore the fun b&w's.

Awesome job on these remakes!

Lisa said...

I love the relationship you have with Loopy. I hope as my girls get older we will have that same type of relationship.

Anyway, there were several times I had to go back and look at the photos again as I could not tell the difference between Loopy and SJP myself. Loopy looks more natural too.

You have some great photographs.

you two make a terrific team! I think my most favorite shot is the very first black and white ... but a bunch of the others come in a very close second! beautifully executed by you both. :)

Saucy said...

Yes we are about wearing that prom dress out, forty years later. You all must be sick of it by now but we can't resist... it's too much fun to wear only once.

Yes! The black backdrop is simple black fabric draped over a frame behind her. A fence would work too, just clamp down the fabric so it won't blow away!

She's gorgeous (Loopy). What fun! I love that idea and love the results. You're so talented!

Rachel said...

what a fun project!!!

Tootsie Farklepants said...

She looks incredible!! That dress! And who did the hair?! Loopy is far prettier than SJP. SJP is pretty in an interesting way. Loopy is just straight up gorgeous!

My two favorites pictures : the one with her hands beside her face, and the first black and white photo where she's looking down. They're all wonderful though.

Everytime I try to take a picture of my older daughter she makes some wacky face! My younger daughter is a bit more subdued. Loopy has what seems to be a natural ability to relax and take direction in front of the camera. Especially considering her mom is behind it ; )

That is such a fun assignment!!!!! She looks gorgeous!

Franny said...

What a beautiful girl Loopy is, and so lucky to have a Ma who can take such gorgeous shots of her!

Pumpkin Petunia said...

Absolutely stunning! Yes, Loopy is much cuter than SJP. (but no one is cuter than Ferris Bueller!)

jeanne winters said...

Just beautiful!!!

Madison Avenue Baby said...

Loopy is way more lovely than SJP. I never understood the big attraction for SJP...she's ok but she ain't all that!
Also, she gets all this credit for being such a "fashionista". She's not - her stylist dresses her on and off the show/movies.
Sheesh!
Loopy's got way more going for her!
Wonderful photographs by the way, just beautiful.
