Oops I cut off all my hair
Reblogging because this is another example of the kind of haircut I want.
You know what’s going to make me feel good today? Scrubbing the tub. And then totally crudding it up again soaking in some kind of froofy bath product.
Gonna take care of myself today. Eff the world.
These are some of my favorite photos I’ve ever taken. It helps that Delling is gorgeous and adorable, but we also had a beautiful sky and a setting sun to mix with my studio lights.
It was a difficult shoot. It was very hot and sticky out. After Delling did their hair & makeup and zipped into their dress—I announced that we had to fill two bags with 40 pounds of sand. These were necessary to weigh down the light stand.
We got all sweaty from lugging around the sand and when we poured it into the bags, it coated us in a lovely layer of dust. After giving me a few grimacing looks, Delling went back inside to fix their makeup and de-sandify themselves.
Armed with two flashes, two battery packs, a light stand, a softbox, two lenses, a camera, a reflector, the evil sandbags of doom, and various flowers—we trekked to my neighbors yard where they have some interesting unkempt stone landscaping.
As I began to shoot, my inexperience directing people started to show.
Delling was like, “Okay, what do I do?”
And I was like, “Make poses and stuff.”
It turns out they required a bit more specificity.
"Do something with your face area."
After another scowl in my direction, Delling started to recall expressions and poses they remembered from magazines.
That actually worked rather well and gave me more confidence to make better suggestions. They probably don’t realize I was using cleverly disguised Zoolander references.
*cough* “Blue steel!”
"Just look like something really sad happened to your left."
In the middle of our shoot, some of the neighborhood kids passed by. One jokingly said, “Hey, can I be in the picture?”
He was a fellow Hazelwood East Spartan so I couldn’t resist getting a shot. Plus he and Delling had bright matching smiles.
In the end, I just had Delling be cute. Not much direction was needed to accomplish that. We got some beautiful pictures and all was good.

Help me take better pictures! My camera wishlist.
Reblogging because I’m going to the salon in a few days and I’m thinking of doing something radical with my hair.
Not sure I can get away with it. Thoughts?
Me, mentally: Okay, if I hop in the shower at 9:10, I can still make my 10am meeting.
Daughter: hops in the shower at 9:09.
How does she do it?
MMkay couldn’t resist XD.

When I saw this shirt, I had to buy it. Especially with working on my Bucky cosplay.
Seriously, though I have a need for fanart/fanfics of Bucky finding this shirt.
Looking forward to Wizard World Austin next weekend! I’ve got my winter soldier costume done! ^_^
I’ve been thinking of moments of calmness in an effort to center myself during times of stress.
Tonight: that feeling when you’re standing at the edge of the ocean and the water is rushing shallowly over your bare feet and the sand is pulled away from under your heels.

You just made my day. Heck, my month.
Oh my gosh! I still have my originals in a longbox in the attic. This made my day too!
you can judge how much I like you by what I’d knit for you for free
