Well, March has certainly turned out to be a record breaking month for the number of posts that have gone live on the blog...13 in total! YAY! That averages out to about two posts a week:) Anyways, you all might remember my post highlighting my plans for spring break, one of which was doing a photo shoot with an up and coming young photographer friend of mine and well....this post is all about those pictures! Now granted, I cannot include all of the pictures (unfortunately) and this post is already verging on picture overload but I couldn't help but include all of my favorite images:)
For the shoot we decided to head to the historic part of our downtown Tomball area which includes a lovely old church, two old homes, two log cabins, a school house, two other building, and a gazebo....needless to day it houses (no pun intended) a number of fabulous picture spots that go perfectly for a vintage shoot. I still remember visiting these historic houses one December for their "Old Town Christmas" celebration fully decked out in my own fabulous 1800's creation (I even got to take a picture with the Mayor in one of the house's elegant parlors) and since then this old historic area of town makes me reminisce about the olden days.
While brainstorming what ensemble I would wear for the shoot I remembered this darling and one of a kind dress from my grandmothers collection! While it is probably straight from the 1940's it also gives of a slight 1930's feel to me and when paired with this flouncy collared shirt I thought it the perfect combination to capture. Even though the wind at times proved trying in regards to keeping the ruffled collar flat, the over all look of the ensemble made me feel quite elegant :) Ever since discovering this dress I have always loved it. From the big white side buttons, checkered trim and back pocket it is truly a treasure. Thus, I chose to pair it with a tan belt, matching tan heeled sandals, large earrings and simple curled/twisted style.
I can't help myself from looking at these pictures over and over again as I LOVE them sooooo MUCH! It was such a wonderful experience to collaborate with an actual photographer for a shoot since I am used to always talking my own pictures. On that note, it was also different because I am not used posing in front of someone who actually holds the camera (apart from my sister), but after awhile it simply became natural!
I can't wait to collaborate and work with Katie again for a blog shoot later on down the road, but for now I am simply LOVING these shots that she captured:)
Have you ever worked with a photographer?
Would you consider this 30's or 40's?
