So, remember how I went for a pin up photo shoot for my birthday this year? I finally decided which photos I wanted the digital rights to. I picked 5 of the 20, aiming for my favorite of each outfit plus the one close up.
I then had so much fun creating a new banner for the blog that I created five and set them to random – every time you refresh, new banner and photo, heh. I also used this time to give it a new design refresh. It feels retro and autumnal, a great combination.
The first shot of the session and, of course, the best. You all know my love for the nautical look, so I was thrilled to see this romper in her closet.
The best this dress has ever looked! She’d actually given this one as a freebie on Facebook, but FB diluted the quality and I really did like this one best of all the poses in this dress. It entirely hid the dress’s fit issues.
I love this outfit combo, but I had a hard time balancing in the shoes – there was a cute one of me on the old time phone, but I was falling off balance. And there was a really fantastic one of me sitting on a suitcase, but the look on my face clearly demonstrated that I was falling off the suitcase. I’m glad there was an on the floor option for this outfit. (PS, the shoes had tiny pink bows on the back! SO CUTE!)
I love this pose!! I love these shoes!! This and the romper are really my favorites.
And a close up! I wish the hair wasn’t cut off, but oh, well. The glasses look great and I love how the brown and yellow look.
ETA: A snapshot of all 20 shots:
Isn’t that last suitcase shot adorable? I love it. Except you can clearly tell I’m off balance!!
Liss and I are set to do another session in October, a Double Trouble friend package she offers. I’m starting to consider what dresses to bring this time – I think I’ll bring the Kate Spade sundress, and probably these capris again, and maybe my chorus girl shorts, but I think I mostly want to try wearing things I don’t own. Liss wants to do a pose with the WW2 bomb and probably a Halloween one. I’d really love to swing a Christmas one, if possible. (Otherwise I’d have to do one in the spring, hee. I still have my half off card from May and I am determined to use it.) I was also thinking a Bye Bye Birdie phone gossip session, or record listening. We’ll see – it’s bound to be a blast!
