Strike a Pose - Simple Moments Stick

Strike a Pose

Tuesday, March 26, 2013


I just got the fabulous pictures back from the most recent Portland Blogger's Meetup and I'm so excited to share them with you all!  The thought behind this meetup was that there are so many bloggers out there who aren't fashion or photography oriented and don't necessarily have the greatest headshots.  On the other hand, there are so many AMAZING photographers and stylists in our group.  They were so kindly willing to use their expertise to give the rest of us a great gift!

First up was the styling.  I had so much fun as Marina McAvoy did my hair and makeup.  It totally took me back to my modeling days.  Oh, you didn't know I was a model when I was younger?  I should tell you about it sometime.  Runway, catalogs, merchandise boxes - I did it all.

I had already picked out the jewelry I wanted to wear, but there was the option of borrowing jewelry, hair accessories, and all sorts of goodies for the shoot.


After getting gussied up, I met with Jenn Pfaus of Pfaus Photography for my shoot.  She was so much fun to work with!  She had so many wonderful ideas and made me feel like a star.


I loved that people were walking downtown Portland and saw our photoshoot.  Maybe I'm just attention hungry, but I thought it was so much fun when people stopped and watched.

At one point, I told Jenn and Jade Rose (the assistant for the shoot - and a wonderful fashion blogger) that if I didn't smile, I looked either angry or dead in pictures.  They took it upon themselves to teach me the art!  It's more than just smizing, girls.


And of course, there always has to be one laughing.  You don't think I take myself that seriously, do you?


If any of you live in the Portland area, we'd love to see you at the next meetup in May.  Head on over to the Portland Blogger's Blog to find out more about our group.
