Yours Truly



I figured it was high time to actually introduce myself.  So this, my darling friends, is me.  As I've mentioned before my roommate is photographer and this is a shot from our house family portraits.  Everyone who lives in the house has a portrait in the hallway.  We chose to do ours like senior portraits in our favourite style.  Since it's well known that I love pin up style photography I chose to do a funny little fifties look.  You can also see a bit of my ink in the picture, which I will be posting more about later.  I have to say, it feels nice to properly introduce myself.My bored housewife look, eyes half closed, ironic smirk.  God I love my roommates.

  4. Oh thank you so much! You're making me blush. She is a fantastic photographer, and I must admit I think I get as excited about being her photo subject as she does taking the photos. Perhaps I'm a bit vain, but I love to be the center of attention ;). Maybe it's just that I was an only child for too long. You and Cath should totally have portraits! I also love the idea of seeking out an old instant camera and doing quick candids of visitors on a cork board or something similar.

  6. Ah ha! Success, that is exactly what we were going for. My roommate Frenchie did a sort of late sixties Edie Sedgwick and my other roommate was full on 80's glam. We also did some cute nerd shots, I'll have to post those as well. Glad you guys like!

  8. Oh my gosh Kristin you just made my day! I love Zooey, I'm actually going to see 500 Days of Summer right now. I'm also toying with dying my hair a nice chocolatey brown like hers. The bottom picture is deceiving since my hair is no where near that dark in real life, just the lighting I guess.
