I just received my new dslr last night, so I thought to take it out for a spin this morning. I've been itching to shoot portraits -- I've been really into portraiture and interiors lately, rather than my usual nature shots.
I decided that I wanted to go for a more "editorial" but still casual photo today. I wanted hair in the face and rigid posing. I went for some fun colors like purple on the eyes and bright pink turtleneck and matching cardigan. Stephanie had this weird but cute manicure with only half her nails painted. I've been really embracing that little weirdo in me these days. I mean, there's always been a part of me that's been a little quirky. I love tacky. I love things that are just a little and a whole lot of odd.
Anyways, I styled my twin sister's clothes and makeup and went out onto the driveway for a 10 minute mini photoshoot. I love this girl with all my heart. I take for granted the fact that when I belt out the first few lines of a song, she'll always finish the lines for me, even from a separate room. And the fact that when we lose ourselves dancing to the car radio together, at the beginning of every song, no matter how bad it is, we proclaim "OMG ITS OUR JAM!" I genuinely believe that she is the most magnificent thing in the entire world.
This whole shoot had a different vibe from our last photo session. Loved them both.
Until next time :)
