ROADSIDE ATTRACTION




















































































A few weeks back, we finally got out of the studio, drove round Portland, jumped out of the car when we felt like it (saw things we liked) to take snaps to see what our clothes looked like in real life, aka not in front of white paper. It was such hard work! Seriously...we were all knackered by the end of it, I forgot loads of things for styling, didn't have things to hand - but I liked it. Working with Carey and the lovely Sydney and Tashina took me right out of my little studio bubble. Good though. So, we did it again last week (this time different models, and only girls in the gang) it was funny, we were winging it but the photos we got were wicked - we'll show you next time! XX

WHAT I'VE BEEN UP TOO...

I found (fuzzy) instagram, went wilderness camping and shot some guns (ye-ha, living the American dream?!), had first ever outside-the-studio photoshoot (it was much more tricky than I thought..hope to use some for a lookbook soon) and got sunburnt. Yeah! Hope y'll had a good 4th!

L-R - Sydney (who has now left to go international modeling, yey!), Me (in Pri-marni best), and Tashina boiling hot in Marlene's old wig, ha!!

Sydney/aka Boy George - Jodie at 220 braided all her hair, before fuzzing it out for the shoot..

We found this sign on our first stop - the word Dancers, was maybe meant to be Dangers, but they carefully covered up the C, hehe. Borgors?! 

Carey Haider was the photographer, I was a massively rubbish reflector person. Again, tricky.

We found an abandoned train to shoot on the way to Sauvie Islands, Sydney was freaking out as she thought she heard people inside it...

Roadside attraction babezzz - boiling hot!

You can see Carey's story from the shoot on his website - I'm not sure what i'm going to pull from it yet.... Here are two of my favourites from Carey - such amazing photographer!




[Thanks to Kristin for all make up too and Tashina for styling it up with me, and modeling!]
