Flying in the wind

8 Oct

Just wrapped up another creative shoot! Enjoy!

Its been a long day. Again, remember what I said about it always raining during my photoshoots?

Well, I at least I’m used to it now. I walked to the Party Store to buy balloons and I was really enjoying the wind. However, the walk home was much more difficult. Being 90 pounds isn’t a good thing when the wind starts picking up, and the helium balloons start to fly away and sweep you off your feet! Well I made it home safe and sound. I was quite proud of myself until I got out of the shower, opened my bedroom door and two of the balloon popped in my face. The balloon bits actually landed in my hair, as well as a good amount of that sticky stuff that’s inside. Great. I just washed my hair and now there is sticky stuff in it. Gross.

The dress is made out of vintage lace that was my grandmothers! It was a great piece for this shoot as well as the Harry Potter shoot.

I did the makeup and hair quickly before it rained and I am so thankful it turned out so well! I was going for a makeup look to match the hair, with the black lace like detailing.  The hair was teased huge when we started, but sadly the wind and rain got rid of a lot of the volume before long.

newspaper!

22 Aug

A few months ago I made my Newspaper dress…

Of course, I had nowhere to wear it and it was just awkward to move in. So, I started wearing it in a different way.

It laces up the back like a corset and the bodice works well as a vest.

In this photo I wore it with a tutu and added a vintage belt (1958) but I also wear it with my black skinny jeans

Rain Rain, go away!

Why does it have to rain during my photoshoots? There must be a stormy little raincloud that follows me around when I pull my camera out…. ok, maybe not, but lets see, the past three shoots I’ve done have gotton poured on. The brighter side of the stormy weather is that the cloud cover gets rid of any harsh lighting and I’m not squinting my eyes all day.

Anyways, here are some photos despite the rain. Enjoy!
