I’m excited about this blog post and photoshoot, I had a lot of fun with my mom and Maren for it. Maren, my cousin, came over here to visit us last month to help us pack up our living room and kitchen, preparing for our remodel that’s finally happening. It was interesting, moving things and packing them up, and Maren worked pretty hard to help us, we we’re grateful to have her over. The two of us used to do these dance-off or music video types of videos way back in the day when we were a whole lot younger, like 2011 and before. One of the examples is on YouTube like this one, but we did a couple videos before that which I’ll eventually find (on my old laptop), and then I’ll post those on YouTube too. Anyway, so of course we had to do a photoshoot 10 years later when she comes to visit us here in Seattle again, so we went to a playground and got some good pictures. The lighting kept fluctuating so we have a few different kinds of lighting for this, but I love how the shoot turned out anyway. We all kind of took turns taking the pictures, standing on all the different playground things to play on. This was a good collaboration, I love what we did with it and how it turned out. The shoot was actually last month but I’m finally getting it up now, probably the last post I’ll do before I get my hair dyed again, so this is a good one. I’m catching up with all my shoots now too, once I get this up it’ll be a fresh slate for me to start shooting again, but I was taking a break from it for a while other than this one actually. We’ll see what comes next for the blog, but doing things like this one is always cool for me anyway, something unique that I can use to change up my perspectives. I don’t think I get too typical or repetitive with my shoots or posts, I think I’m always doing something new or good that I can use to frame myself better, but collaborations are always a unique icing for the cake that changes things up even more. They make it better for me to try with, something that speaks up differently and will never sound the same. I’m glad I’m finally all caught up with shoots this year, I’ve been behind for quite a while but I know exactly what to do next! Great news about this shoot with Maren, now let’s get into it finally.Continue reading
Welcome to the greatest show, the greatest show you’ve ever seen before — this post is the new era. THE new era. The red hair, balayage like Christina 2001. Labret piercing like Xtina 2002. Goodass friends. Cute little models for me this time. Feminism. Loneliness? What comes with a new era… what comes with a new revolution. The way we revolt and the weapons we use. The way we aim and the game we play when we’re ready to slay. We’re girls, take a deep breath and say it loud. CAN’T HOLD US DOWN. ~ conceptually inspired by the 2002 song by Christina Aguilera.
“So. What am I not supposed to, have an opinion? Should I be quiet to speak ’cause I’m a woman? Call me a BITCH ’cause I speak what’s on my mind, when it’s easier for you to swallow if I sat and smiled. (((::”…. to be continued press de buttonn.
Hey guys! So it’s September which means we’re fading from summer to fall (in Seattle at least) and my style’s been transitioning with that flow. I’ve been doing lots of little shoots here and there and not really in-depth with any of them, but I have some to show. Last September on the 2nd I posted 3 outfits where I went from end-of-summer style to transitioning to an actual fall time outfit.
This year, I have 3 looks as well, but they’re a lot different of a direction. We start out with my shoot from the 26th called Coke-A-Cola which included this cool coca-cola shirt that I got years ago and distressed it awesomely, piled with long hair on top and jeans that have never fit me in my life until now. Then, on the 31st, we have Daydream which was such a nice night for me and how I dressed up (well not dressed up but like…wore clothes lmao) to go to dinner with my mom, and this outfit is actually a pretty classic September-vibe outfit (and it includes a new thrift find).
The last one isn’t an outfit, I just really wanted to shoot this Oops, I Did It Again shirt. The idea board I had goin in my mind for this shirt shifted a lot as I went from wanting to make it a real outfit to then deciding I wanted to do a “Shameless” (not the TV show, but the actual concept) shoot and honestly the Oops, I Did It Again part was SO perfect for this. It’s like oops, I did it again, I made a fashion faux-pas, but gladly rocking it! 😉 I actually totally love it. I took this shoot immediately after getting out of the shower on Sept 1st, and after putting on makeup and stuff I did a separate shoot but this shoot was definitely raw and fresh.
Good morning! I know I haven’t been blogging as much lately, and that’s because my life has been HECTIC. Not going too much into my personal life but there was a breakup and blah blah, so I haven’t felt as inspired as I typically used to be. But hey! I did a photoshoot last week (in collaboration with Seattle Talent) where I got some new headshots done but we also did 3 modeling shoots. It was so fun! I walked around Seattle in like 6in chunky heels for like 5 miles, but it was so fun. I can’t wait to see the pictures next week. BUT! I should show y’all the last shoot I did before I lost inspiration.
I got this dress on sale from Nasty Gal and it is most definitely in my top 5 favorite dresses list! This and a blue one (you’ll see that next week) I got last month and I’m so in love with them. This shoot is kinda different because my makeup was a MESS, I went through a whole day and then just slapped on another lipstick over the mess and it was a pretty messy makeup look, but who cares? I love this outfit. These shoes with this dress >>>>
