Every summer I do a really fun, sometimes crazy, photo shoot with my friends....thanks to Shannon Varis, redcouchphoto.com. It's always the high light of my summers. My friends and I all go to different colleges and some of us come home for summer, some don't, so it's always really special when we get together and do something fun like this. High school friends are the best! <3
Here are some pictures from the first photo shoot, summer 2oo9. We dressed crazzzyy and actually ended up going to a Carnival that was in town for the weekend. Tutu's, blazers, spandex, neon, the works.
Here are photos from the 2010 photo shoot. We were lucky enough to get 2 days worth of pics!
How cool are my friends? That lucky guy posing with us is Ryan. If you haven't heard about him, ya need ta. Catch his humor at his blog, north-view.blogspot.com.
For summer 2011, we wanted to have a really cool theme. We decided on doing a vintage bridal theme. It was good in theory, but we had no idea what we would wear. Google imaging inspirations could only get us so far. Luckily, on a quick trip to visit my boyfriend in the small town of Portales, I stepped into a consignment store 15 minutes before close, and as fate would have it, there was a bridal section. Beautiful, lacey, old, conservative, 50s inspired wedding gowns! It was perfect. I put 6 of those babies on hold, bada bing, bada boom, we wore them for the shoot. The pictures aren't done being edited yet, but I do have 1 shot I can give for a teaser! Ill post those as soon as they're done. I cant wait!
How awesome is Shannon's photography???? I love looking back on this picture because although we look so perfect, poised, and graceful, we were dying!!! It was over 90 degrees on a hot summer afternoon!!! Our make up was smudging, our dresses were choking us (women in the 50s were tiny!!....btchz) But I mean, we were having so much fun we didn't care. Honey badger don't care.
