A couple of weeks ago, Robert and I had the privilege of doing a photo shoot for our friend Amy of Evy's Tree. She sent us a few pieces from her Spring line (all in my size...nice!), and Robert started brainstorming. He came up with some great outdoor ideas, but the weather hasn't been very cooperative. So he turned our basement into a makeshift studio, and we got to work on an indoor shoot.
Here are a few of the images:
The compliment that convinced me to blog about this is from a friend of mine who said that I am such a "natural beauty." Yes, so "natural" that to prepare for this shoot, I flipped through Anthropologie catalogs to get ideas on how to pose and such. I also loaded on the make-up. I normally go make-up free or just do a quick 5 minute face for going out. Then, I put a ton of product in my hair. I don't think I have had that much in my hair since my highschool prom. Haha! And when I put on the chosen outfit, I realized that my skinny jeans had gotten extra skinny since the last time I wore them. I should have invested in a pair of Spanx because I had to suck in so much that my abs were sore the next day! :) And after all of this, I still had Robert do some editing. He covered up a few blemishes on my face that the makeup just couldn't cover, he covered up my laugh lines and then smoothed out all of my skin. It's no wonder I look so good in these pics. But this is definitely not natural! Haha!
So all those compliments should go to Amy for designing such amazing clothing, to Robert for his photography and editing skills and to Anthropologie for being my inspiration!
It was fun, and maybe the next time Robert asks me to sit in and model for him, I won't just roll my eyes and send my daughter instead.
