holiday 2011 "blooper" shots

Yesterday John and I went out to photograph my holiday collection and we were able to accomplish the whole shoot in about 2 hours. Pretty good I'd say! It was cold and rainy, though the rain stopped by the time we started shooting. I was glad to have it done, but it really was fun spending the afternoon with my brother! He knows his way with the camera. I only wished I had a camera to take a few shots of him taking photos. This season I didn't have time to rope someone in to model for me, so I did it myself. Sometimes it's just easier, since this was pretty last minute. I'm very pleased with this collection and am super excited to have something for the holidays this year!

These photos are all "blooper" shots (however even John's bloopers look awesome!). I wore grocery bags over my shoes and oversized rain boots when walking around since the ground was so muddy. The first one was taken just as the kitty was about to jump on me, before John stopped him, thank goodness!!!

So far our thanksgiving break has been marvelously fun. I hope you all are enjoying the holiday! xo

  8. Thanks everyone! I can't wait to reveal the whole collection!

    Martha, the tights are wool (not 100% though) from JCrew a few years ago, on sale of course! They're pretty good, but a teeny bit tight around the waist. I always order tights too small.

    Silvana, I CAN'T WAIT to see you in January!! Keep me posted on that! xoxo

    Happy Thanksgiving!
