mint & rose

I mentioned a few posts ago that I bought a new camera, and here are some of the first photos taken with this magical machine. It's a Canon Rebel T1i with an amazing 28mm lens and I'm completely smitten, especially after using a super junky old Canon Rebel that was at least nine years old. Lauren and I shot these photos near Haight Street where we invaded the Goodwill and found a few lovely vintage pieces (her a velvet fascinator from the 50's and me a beautiful red cape and an orange robe with giant bows on it).

Oh, and that last photo? That's what I look like when I'm laughing (read: painfully nerdy).

Your friend Lauren is a babe. Between the two of you, I can't decide whether to grow my bangs out or not.

Are you loving the blouse? I'm thinking of getting the one with white trim, but they only have the one size!

yay to new cameras, and nerdy laughs are the best (though I'm often tormented because of my snort laugh) x.x.

I love that you smile in so many of your posts! I'm so self-conscious of my teeth and chin, but I'm always the only person who notices anyway! You're so lovely!

Gosh, you're lovely. And your dress is just darling!

P.S. I have an open ended ticket to SF on the 24th! We're going to be in Tahoe for most of the trip, celebrating Jeff's birthday (you're welcome to come if you feel like making a drive!), but since the ticket is open ended I don't know yet when I'll be going home. I'll let you know if I'm going to be around for awhile so we can finally have that lady date!

Hey Ashley, I've been meaning to write to you, but I've been quite of kind. So remember I asked you at the end of last year if you could model in a video shoot for The Common for some collections. Well we're shooting sometime in late February/Early March. I hope you're still interested! I'll let you know further details once you've confirmed.

I love that blouse from Pixie Market. Peter Pan collars are just too adorable. You and your friend Lauren are such stylish ladies.

Also I'd love to photograph you sometime for your blog! I'm always interested in photographing people for fun! Let me know!
