the abandoned barn

ah, my first outfit. jeff and i went out to an abandoned barn near my neighborhood... hiked through the thorns and brambles (ended up with a few scratches, wah) and snapped photos...I was worried about standing on this giant spool.. it was very old and weathered, and every time i moved, it would crack a little bit... luckily, i made it out alive!it was SUCH a nice day... it was definitely one of the nicest days of the year so far! 75 degrees and sunny... hooray, cleveland! before the shoot, jeff and i went on a little hike around a lake to find sunbathing snakes... we saw ten water snakes, and jeff caught one! (just to hold... then he let it go) it had a bump in its belly... must have just eaten a frog or something! crazy!
This was my first time 'modeling' and it was pretty fun... harder/more awkward than i thought! it's easy to feel like, "oh, i can do that..." but when you actually try it... i kept asking jeff what i should do, how i should pose... it's hard to think of so many different looks (that aren't just ridiculous!) all in good time.

  1. Ah! I really love this shoot :D The outfit and old barn are so perfect for each other. I think for your first time, you did amazingly. Much better than my first few attempts. I was so awkward and stiff. I blanked out and didn't know what to do. I love the soft colors and accessories. So pretty.

  12. Love the color scheme and the lace up wedges. So cute. Don't worry about the scratches, they are the battle wounds of fashion blogging. :)
