Another Shoot

Today I did another photo shoot. No theme, I was told to bring myself and some tops to wear. A "trade for" shoot, I get one image out of the shoot. We took around 400 pictures and I narrowed them down to nine that I liked the best. In the end I had a difficult time picking out one image for the photographer to retouch for the final result.
He said the retouch won't be much, flyaway hair strands, whiten up eyes and teeth if needed, take out blemishes if needed.
I do not use much make up, no foundation, no contouring, no blush. I was not happy with the lip gloss color that I had on but I did not have much else to choose from in my make up bag. Also not happy with my hair.
Here are the nine I narrowed down to.

In the end after some undecisiveness I picked the one in the right hand corner at the bottom. 
I can say this......in some of the pictures that I discarded I looked terrible. Everybody ages....I know. I am trying to "embrace" getting older as in getting older visibly on my face, skin and body. There are worse problems to have, I am very well aware of that.
Last December I did a similar shoot. Like a head shot type shoot. Trade for. I was asked to bring myself and some sweaters.
I got a few images out of that shoot. Here is one of them.
Last December......one year went by so fast.

A picture in a red dress from a shoot I did a while back for TropiCouture. Suzanne the designer for TropiCouture makes dresses. I don't wear dresses often but I like some of her creations. We did the shoot along the Vancouver WA waterfront, it is really nice there.

We Are All Stardust

Back in December I did a photo shoot. Here are a few of the pictures from it. They ended up in three (supposedly?) magazines. I have two of the magazines, Gezno and Range, the third I know nothing about.

When I arrived at the photographer's place I met the other person that was there for the shoot as well. It is good that I am not shy. We stripped down and got covered in glitter, me in gold and the other model in silver.
I REALLY like the text for "We Are All Stardust." So pretty.

There were some other pics of me alone and the both of us in the magazines. And here are two that did not end up in print.

Seeing the end result I should had paid more attention to detail when applying the glitter, there are areas on me that are not covered which shows in the pictures and the glitter fell of as well during the shoot when I was moving around. Also, I should had put some light glitter on my face.

Moon Boots

Moon Boots are the trend du jour currently. A lot of the current It-models and celebs are doing photoshoots wearing them. And back in early 2000s they had a moment as well, a moment that is back now.
Of course I have Moon Boots! And of course I wore them for a photoshoot, out by Lake Mead outside Las Vegas in 2007 and Barry was the photographer. I still have those Moon Boots, I got them in Denver and I wore them to Together As One years ago.
Memories.....I am looking through CDs with old pictures this evening. Here I am in my Moon Boots. I thought they were SO cool and SO cute back then and they still are!
