Photoshoot: The Sauvie Island Scarecrow

I’m sure it’s obvious that fall is NOT my favorite time of year, and winter is worse. I spend months rampaging at everyone, the moment someone puts a carol on. The usual cozy imagery of the season just makes me grumpy.

So it’s a bit odd how happy I was with these images. They’re just serene, and happy. These were shot last weekend, in the rain, on location in Sauvie Island, Oregon.

A few mini reviews.

Yes, I know I’ve been VERY flaky lately.  Had one curve ball after another, and even though I’ve had a few new products pass through my hands, I haven’t been able to document my play with them.  I wanted to pass on a few mini-reviews for products that have caught my interest lately…

Photoshoot: Underwater!

So, I designed the entire look for this day around the idea that we were going to be dipping it in the pool later, and any powders used might be cakey, or wash out or off underwater.  Plus, the bluish tone of pool water can have odd effects of the skin tone, so I compensated with a touch more bronzey color, to keep her skin at its natural color.  This is the first photoshoot I used my airbrush at!  Having tested it on myself, and even tested crying in it, I loved how it held up and barely moved.  It was a good choice, and did the same here.
