Lessons in Being a Model

 I alluded to my stint as a model a few posts ago, but felt that I needed to share some behind the scenes pictures of the photo shoot for one of Houston's best boutiques Carrie Ann. There will be more on the outfits and such in an upcoming post, but I thought I would let you in on what I learned (ya know cause I'm now an expert after 2 hours on a shoot).







First, you need a tan (or someone willing to photoshop one in). Please accept my mistake as a cautionary tale, as you can tell my legs are blending in quite nicely with the white backdrop. Thankfully the glare didn't break the camera. Secondly, channeling your inner historical/not so historical figures is key. I chose Elvis and Austin Powers... What can I say? My interests vary. Last but certainly most important, having a shoot location next to Crave cupcakes is necessary, having an awesome friend like Megan from Greetings from Texas to go have said cupcakes with is also imperative. It also doesn't hurt to have a very trusting photog that lets you play with very expensive equipment (and keeps insisting "its ok its insured"). I loved playing model for the day, but I don't think I will be giving up my shot BEHIND the camera anytime soon.

I'm glad I'm not the only one who needs a tan. Except I live in FL soooo it's kind of unacceptable. Just another reason to move to Texas!

You're fabulous. And that camera is massive.

Loveeeee

You are beautiful. I have no doubt I would be extra double awkward in front of a camera. I am just not a camera person. I will gladly stand behind. Happy Tuesday eve friend. Stay warm!
