FOTO FUN !

SO...
these last couple days I got the opportunity to assist a photographer.
it was way fun!!
i've said it before, and ill say it again...
my love for art started with photography.
it was the 1st form of art that i ever really got into.
and i may not be the most technical person, or know anywhere close to
all the in's and out's of the business...but i absolutely adore the creative side.
that probably goes for most things in life, i go the more creative route. always.

anyways...the photographer was very nice, experienced, helpful and fun to work with.
he was very willing to pass on some tricks and lessons he has learned over time.
which was awesome, and very much appreciated.

we shot for 3 days, and the first couple days i sat at a computer and imported
photos for him, went through, sorted and deleted some, and helped get cameras 
set up with fresh memory cards throughout the shoot.
lots of pictures y'all!!
the last day he shot tethered, so i just helped with being an extra light source. 
i wore a massive straw hat and found myself smiling every time the models were told to smile!! 
wish i would have taken more behind the scenes photos...maybe next time.

i won't go into detail about what we were shooting, bc these
prototypes won't be available until next year.
BUT i will say, i had a blast and hope to be a part of this process next year :)

its safe to say i've re-fallen in love with photography...
so hopefully ill start being extra trigger happy!

talk to y'all soon,
tootles.

Fall Feelings...

my tropical trips coming up have got me thinking about cooler weather...
im ok with anything that will get me closer to an amazing adventure!
especially when layers, wedges, orange, chunky sweaters, fun decor, fringe, bonfires, 
mix match, ankle boots, PECAN PIE, crazy messy hair, thick socks, plaid, 
and maybe some velvet are involved.
sounds yummy huh?
thats what i keep telling myself...and i freaking love clothes, so bring it.
what are your fall favorites??
tootles!
