The Rules Never Change

Friday, November 14, 2014

Today was such a cold day here in Missouri.  The high was barely above freezing! It is basically feeling like winter already, which makes me dread how much colder it will get within the next few weeks. One thing I do love about winter is being able to wear my coats again, especially this one!  Orange is such a fun color and when it is paired with this color of blue, it's a knockout!  Romwe has a great selection of colorful coats for this season and I hope I can add some of them to my coat collection before too long.  For the complete details on this look, you can go to my Lookbook post here.  Hope everyone has a fabulous weekend! xoxo

Hi babies!  Sorry for no decent posts in a long long time, but I should be back at it now on a semi regular basis.  :)  I have to tell you all about my new love affair with pencil skirts, especially this one I'm wearing.  It is by KTR, a designer who I have adored for years.  I'm so obsessed with her personal style and her collection.  This skirt was my first purchase from KTR Collection but most certainly not my last!  I get so many compliments on it when I wear it and it is just a confidence boosting kind of piece. :)  I hope you guys take my advice and go check out her designs.  xoxo.

Making of "The Occult Conservatory"

Friday, July 11, 2014

Post photo shoot selfie! :)
Being from southwest Missouri, the first thing that comes to my mind when I decide that I want to make a large flower skirt is chicken wire.  Little bit southern, wouldn't you say?  The skirt took a total of 12 hours for Ravon and I to complete with only 2 hours to spare before the shoot.  This shoot was such a dream come true for me.  The location is all I could ever ask for, the gorgeous Ravon modeled for me and there is no way I could have made the costume without her either, and the costume was absolutely beautiful and incredibly unique.  
Pretty as can be on location and shooting away.
It might be a few days before I have the photos edited and ready to reveal to you lovely people so for the time being I was hoping I could show you just a glimpse of what went on behind the scenes to make this shoot happen.

All of our materials before we started working.
Finally got all those pieces of chicken wire into skirt shape!
First 6 hour shift: Done!

 For me, this was not only a shoot.  It was learning how to work with someone else who may not have the same mental vision as I do but accepting their idea because it is simply better.  In the photography community, there are two types of people.

1. The people who want to learn from others and grow as  a whole
2. The people who think they know best because they are the photographer.

Yes, I am guilty of being type 2 maybe a little more than I should but thats what is so great about working with new people all the time.  You learn different lessons from each experience with someone new.  I am so fortunate to have my friends model for me and that we can cherish these memories and have some pretty cool photos to show for them, too.

 I am lucky enough to have supportive friends and family who love to encourage my creative side and help challenge me along the way and if it wasn't for them, I wouldn't be going through this photography journey still.  It would have ended soon after it started, in all honesty.  But like I said, I am blessed to have people in my life that will gladly work with me, encourage me, and inspire me just by the way they live their lives.

God bless. xoxo
