playful girls playing dress up.

I think my hobby has turned into an obsession.

I seriously can't get enough of styling outfits to play dress up with my friends. At the rate I'm going I'll be out of clothes to show you by the end of the week! Yesterday I went with a blue theme and got in on the model mix while my sister took the pictures. It was incredibly weird being in front of the camera as I would have rather taken the photos than been in them, but I had fun being silly with the girls and my sister did a pretty great job with the photos too. Don't ya just love how it always works out in the end!















On a little side not, 3 out of the 4 ladies involved with this shoot (not including myself) have started blogs! I guess they heard enough of me talking about the blog world that they finally gave in and started their own. Whatever the reason...I'm excited!

-My sister (the photographer) is Kristi and her blog is a ghost for thought. She's owl obsessed and one of the most creative people I know. I hope she finds time to post regularly because I always enjoy reading her random thoughts.
-Hannah, my good buddy and go-to-model has some of my favorite photos ever! For real. You have to check them out. She just started her blog, brighten my heart, yesterday, but she's already posted some of her best work. This summer I want to go back to that amazing sunflower field you see in her photos.
-Christy is the last of the three to start a blog and hers is called some teachers are cool. She's adorable and always looks extra cute, and she takes some pretty great photos too. I haven't known her long, but she's quickly become like another sister to the family.

If you can swing by their blogs to say hello, I know they'd be delighted to see you. Keep in mind, they're still figuring out this whole blog thing (remember when you first started? lol) so there's not a lot of content yet, but they're getting it!

Starr!! You never ever ever ever ever cease to amaze me. I keep thinking, there's no way she's going to top her last post and then you totally do! (Tenfold!) I love the dancing/skipping ones and the ones with books and the one of you three holding hands in a circle reminds me of that Matisse painting 'The Dance.' At least, I think that's what it's called!
