This last shoot was SO much fun! I was so blessed--seriously blessed--to find an amazing dress for an even more amazing price. It fit perfectly without needing a single alteration. Incredible! I even got to wear pocket panniers...and for a historical-ista like me, that was kinda the best ever. ;)
The hair was a blast, and also, remarkably easy! I was scared to death it would be a disaster, but seeing as how I'm not a "hair-doer" as my daughter would say, I think it turned out okay. :)
My good friend Heather Smith was kind enough to come out in the freezing cold to assist--you helped so much, Heather! Could not have done it without you!
And I've been so fortunate to work with an amazing photographer, who also happens to be my good friend--Danyell Diaz. She knows exactly what will look good and makes the experience so much fun.
I hope you don't mind that I share these photos, ladies. Let me know what you think! Would you like to dress up? What would you want to wear?
|Here's Heather and I talking as we walked to the next spot for shooting. It was so windy and cold!|
|Dancing a wee little jig...|
|Heather and Danyell were so much fun and we kept each other laughing the whole time. We were the only ones at the location that day. Everyone else was smart enough to stay in where it was warm.|
|Me and Danyell.|
|The grounds were lovely--even during mid-February when the trees were totally bare.|
|The setting was so lovely, I would really enjoy going back there when its not 30 degrees!|
|Hair shot...and fun with picmonkey. *wink*|
|The bodice of this dress is just so lovely. I wish clothes were this pretty now-a-days.|
|These shoes are so incredibly comfortable! Seriously!! I don't know if they were this comfy for ladies of the 18th century, but I was genuinely surprised at how these fit so perfectly.|
