Brown Jacket From The 70's

I really love this jacket. I kinda hate to part with it but, I don't think I will wear it often. Off it goes to my shop because it needs to be worn and loved by someone.

Black Velvet 80's Dress

Here is the dress from yesterday's photos. I have now added it to my Etsy store. It's such a cute dress I couldn't believe I forgot I had it. And, I had actually never tried it on until yesterday right before photographing it. I think it's a great dress to add to any wardrobe because it really is versatile. It can be easily dressed up or down.

Satsuma Season, YUM!

In an attempt to kill my boredom yesterday, I took more pictures with my bowl of tangerines a.k.a cuties. Now that I am done photographing them, it will be time to devour them and all their juicy goodness!

I was considering making juice out of them but, I have never tried making an orange juice like drink out of anything but, oranges. Have you tried any tangerine juice? How did you like it?

Canceled Photo Shoot Due To Rain, Boo Hoo!

I had a feeling something would happen to cause a cancellation because this was my first "real" photo shoot and I had prepared all week for it. I was so excited I went to bed early last night. Then I woke up to the sound of rain! Usually I love hearing rain because it's not heard very often living in California. But, this morning was not a morning I wanted to awake to the sound of a pitter patter on my roof!
Since, I have been cooped up all morning and disappointed. I decided to mess around with my camera anyways and find something cheery to photograph. I cleaned the kitchen early on today and realized that my bowl of cuties was really charming. I found inspiration in something I hadn't thought of. Here was my 15 minutes of being content. Now, I am back to being bored and I need to think of a new they say, back to the drawing board.

Yellow Vintage 40's Dress For Photo Shoot

Here are some more details to Saturday's Photo Shoot

If you can't tell, I am really excited. This should be my last post about this photo shoot. At least until I actually attempt it:)

The Dress For Photo Shoot
Vintage Mustard Yellow Ballgown

Flapper Style Dress

Pretty romantic beaded dress. I took these photos of myself a couple months back and forgot about them. Here are a couple of my favorites.

Pre shoot for Saturday

I have my first Model Mayhem photo shoot planned for this Saturday. I will be taking pictures of an aspiring model from San Diego. I am really excited and I don't want to disappoint her. So, I want to be prepared. Earlier today, I walked around the location I hope to take pictures at. I took pictures of the areas I would like to go back too.

I am going to have her wear a vintage mustard colored ballgown from the 40's. The model is petite, and has tan skin and dark hair. I think the mustard colored dress will look really pretty against her skin tone and it will contrast nicely with the greens and other yellow colors of background scenery.

Here is a quick glimpse of the locations I have in mind for her photo shoot.

Red Vintage Coat

Vintage 60's Little Black Dress

The first picture and the last picture are my two favorite pictures from this short photoshoot. My friend in the black dress, Jessica, has suggested a really cool place for us to go to take some pictures. The pictures here were taken in a local park kinda spur of the moment. I can't wait to plan out the next shoot!

Photos With A Vintage Feel

I was finally able to get a couple of my friends together for a very quick photo shoot. I had to do this shoot in about 10 minutes because we nearly missed the sunlight. The sun is beginning to set so early now, that we were still driving to our destination and following the last bit of rays. I was just happy to get a few cute pictures in such a limited amount of time. My friends had fun so, we will all probably get together again. Next time we will hopefully remember that the sun goes down much earlier and plan for a little more time.

Soon, I have a couple more photo shoots scheduled with my first model set ups from Model Mayhem. I am nervous and excited! And at the same time I can't wait to give it a go. More pictures will come to follow.

Black and White Photos At The Pier

Over the weekend my friends and I celebrated our friends birthday at the beach. We roasted marshmellows over the bonfire and went on the swings, made sand angels, strolled down the pier and played in the sand.
