It looks as though this new photo setup has become my latest addiction! I've been trying to get off the internet more when Jake's at work during the day, and I'm glad to see that this backdrop is helping. I've pissed away so much time online these past few months when I could've been working on something more creative! All that's in the past though. I went shopping at Saver's today (photos tomorrow) and scored lots of really great things for the shop. Hannah and I were so excited about our finds that we came home and photographed one of the dresses. I'm also working on scheduling another shoot with Katy and then another one with Hootie for next week! So much productivity going on around this place; I'm just hoping that this wave of energy doesn't wind down.

After we photographed that dress for the shop, Hannah was kind enough to take these shots for me. I lost my camera remote (got another one on the way) and was having trouble getting the self-timer to meter for me and not for the background. I know the lighting's not perfect, still working on getting that just right, but we had fun playing around.  Do you like my dress? It was sent to me by the lovely Amanda from The Upside Of Wonder and is available in her shop if you're interested. I'll be sad to pass it on because it really is the most comfortable dress that can be styled a million different ways and will easily go with you from summer to fall.

Love these pics and your new backdrop! That hat is the sweetest!
and I so know what you mean about pissing away time on the computer. Once in Nashville I hope I'll be so busy I won't have time for the internet! xoxo

Ah, without a remote it can be SO hard to get the focus right! Totally know what you mean.

By the way, I love the feel of these photos! Totally retro with the records but vintage with the outfit.

I really like your new backdrop. It's so simple you can really focus on the clothes. Sweet dress and I do love the petal hat. I found the record player a bit confusing when I first looked at these!

So much fun! The trick with the record threw me off. I had to look a second time. Very cool and clever illusion!

Adorable photo shoot!

I think it's really easy to waste time on the internets when you work from home. I try to be disciplined about this myself, but sometimes it doesn't work. There's just so much loveliness to be seen online. However, the endless inspiration is kind of pointless if you don't get out there and start creating for yourself!

these photos rule!

Hi! Your so right. flickr is so much better. It's the second time this happens to me.

I'm sorry about the trouble. I'm moving for flickr and this time forever!
