Question 41: Didn’t I warn you?

5 Nov

I’m really lagging on my posts lately. In my defense, I did warn you. πŸ™‚ I’ve been swamped with photoshoots. (I have 3 tomorrow & another on Monday!) Hmm…what else has been going on ? My furnace at home decided it wanted to stop working when it’s freezing out. Thank God for space heaters. I’ve been applying like crazy to jobs lately. Still no word from any of them. Anyone wanna put in a good word for me? I can give you my resume if you want. πŸ™‚ Anyway, here’s what I wore…Wednesday I think, haha, and here are a couple shots from Wednesday’s shoot. Striped Shirt- Worthington

White Shirt- Vanity

Belt- Rue 21

Jeans- Nine West

Shoes- Macys

 

Question 40: Do you have a normal sleep cycle?

3 Nov

This outfit is actually from Monday. I refuse to put away my summer wardrobe- I just use sweaters & tights to make it a little more “fall appropriate.” Nevertheless, I still froze when I went out to dinner in this on Monday. Β I have a feeling that I’m going to be having less time to update this blog this month, but I will try my best. See, I have 10 photoshoots in the next 2 and a half weeks, and that’s on top of my job at Waynesburg U. My sleep schedule’s already out of whack. (For instance, the night before last, I slept for 3 and a half hours, and last night, I slept for 12.) Oh dear, I needed that. I think that I could have slept longer, except I have to go to Pittsburgh today for a shoot. Btw, if you’re interested in setting up a shoot in the near future, you might want to sign up for my Christmas email list, which will have discounts for next year! Just comment to be added to it. πŸ™‚

Question 39:Is it a small world after all?

31 Oct

Sorry about the lack of posts the past couple of days. My life has been a bit of a rollercoaster lately. I did a photoshoot yesterday. The model actually knew a few of my friends from youth group in high school. Such a small world, lol. I’ve gotten a bunch of shoots booked up for the month of November, but still have a few free dates open if anyone wants to do a shoot around the Pittsburgh area!

Question 38: Plans? What plans?

28 Oct

Yesterday, I had a photoshoot up in Pittsburgh. I’ve come to find, especially lately, that your day will never work out exactly as you had planned it. For example, yesterday’s shoot was supposed to be with both a male and female model. I got to the location a little early, to find that the female model had texted me to ask if we could push back the shoot a half an hour. Sure, lol. Around the time the shoot was supposed to start, she was still nowhere to be found. Hmm…so I texted her, waited & then called her…only to find that her phone was dead. Oh dear. So, I jumped out of the car, and started walking around, hoping maybe we’d see each other. Thank God I did. The male model had actually been there..but not being able to get a hold of either of us, left. Oh well. The shoot still went well. πŸ™‚

Question 37: Want a deal?

27 Oct

Yesterday’s weather was ridiculous. I woke up expecting it to be freezing out, so I wore this outfit, along with my new black peacoat. By mid-day, I was roasting…not to mention the fact that at the office, the heat seriously must be turned up to 90 degrees. All day, I was in anticipation for a huge storm, since I kept seeing updates from my friends in the Midwest about the tornado warnings. Around 5 or so, the dark clouds were rolling in, and all we got was a little wind and maybe a bit of rain for a few minutes. That was it. I spent the rest of the night applying to jobs & getting things ready for the photoshoot I have today.

Ooh, I also got a new rotating bracket for my camera yesterday. πŸ™‚ Now, I’m just waiting on my two new lenses. P.S. I’m running a special for the month of November- 50% off all beauty/fashion photoshoots. Contact me for details!

Question 29: You want proof?

19 Oct


I think I’ve mentioned before that a photograph of mine was going to be the cover of a book, right? Well, here’s proof! The photo was from a shoot I did with a blogger in Pittsburgh . The book won’t be coming out until next October, but you can pre-order it! It’s under the Books tab. πŸ™‚

For yesterday’s outfit, I wore something a little different. You all know how I ADORE thrifting, and this little find was something quite out of the ordinary. This skirt (which I made into a dress yesterday) is an authentic Diane von Furstenberg, which I acquired for only 25 cents. Oh dear goodness. πŸ™‚

Question 28: Can’t a photographer wear anything but the color black?

18 Oct

Sorry about the lack of a post yesterday. I photographed an all-day wedding up in Pittsburgh on Saturday, so there wasn’t really need for an outfit post, since once again, I was wearing all black plus, I was busy editing those photos all day yesterday. The wedding was absolutely gorgeous & the couple was so sweet and fun. I actually felt more comfortable at that wedding than I have at some weddings where I knew the couple. Weird, lol. After I came back from that long day of shooting, I went over to a friend’s house and we watched Mad Men til about 1 a.m. Only a couple more episodes and I’ll be caught up to the 4th season! Thank you, Netflix, πŸ™‚

Like I said, yesterday, I spent most of the day editing wedding photos, but I did go to the Harvest Festival for a little while, and got this unique necklace there. The beading is done with crocheted copper.
