Outfit Post Dec. 30th

Dress: Vintage 90's Dress, Thrifted
Stockings: Betsey Johnson, eBay
Shoes: Vintage 80's Boots, Thrifted

Here is a rarity on my blog but, I do hope to have more of these in the upcoming year. It's an outfit post! This was the outfit I was wearing yesterday while I took some photos of my friend. We had a great day taking photos of each other. She proved to be a much better photographer than she thought. This spot had such a beautiful filter of light through the trees that I knew I would love how it looked. So, I sat against the fence and had a beautiful moment of peace.

Merry Christmas Eve!

I haven't had much time to blog lately because I have been very busy taking photos for people. I have been getting several requests from my friends to take some portraits for them. Below are some that I have been working on. The red and black dress will be for sale soon too!

Rose Petals

My favorite picture from last night's shoot.

Ashley's Fashion Project

A friend of mine had asked if I could help out with taking the photos for another friend's fashion project. I said sure, here are the results.

Can you guess which fashion icon they are imitating?

Getting In The Holiday Spirit

I am working my way into the holiday spirit. Here is a pretty low light picture of me and some Christmas lights, taken recently by my friend Brent, of Brent Murrell Photography.

Tomorrow, I will be starting my shopping and helping my mom decorate her Christmas tree:)

Pretty Marci

Friday, a fabulous photographer and photoshop whiz and friend of mine, was kind enough to take the time to show me a few photo enhancing tips and tricks using photoshop. As he was showing me, I was worried, I wouldn't catch on to any of his teachings. He is a good teacher but, he took me through a photo from start to finish and there was hours of steps. Surprisingly, I think I retained more information that I thought. Here is one of the first pictures I have worked on with my new skills. Plenty more to come:)

Faux Hollywood Hills

Yesterday, my friend Jenny called me to come help her put together a pub table and stools for her kitchen. I went over there and we first started with the table. That was simple but, the stools were much more challenging. It took us a while to get those together even after busting out the power tools.

After we cleaned up her kitchen of tools and hung some new curtains. We had about 8 minutes left of day light to run outside and quickly get a few dresses photographed that I will be adding to my Etsy store later today.

These pictures remind me of Hollywood Hills, they are my Faux Hollywood Hills pictures:)

I had to have my friend Jenny model some of these dresses because unfortunately they are TINY! I can not fit into two of them, no matter how much I try.

The second dress pictured is my favorite out of the group and it will fit a small or a medium. It's the only non XS dress of this group.

Later, today I will be doing some more self portraits to get a few more dresses added to the shop.
