I use way too many exclamation marks, but I'm really just that excited!!!! I want to know what moves your heart. I say "that's so funny" quite a bit, but it can mean a number of things. I am a lover of donuts and tea. I floss every night before bed! I love the idea of being spontaneous, but rarely do things unplanned. I am the youngest of four girls, but I'm taller than all my sisters. I would love to open a cafe someday. I am fascinated by the bridegroom God and his ravished heart for all of humanity

    I am wondering the same thing! In exactly one week I’ll be getting my portraits taken by Shelley Paulson. I’ve been going out so much in the last two weeks looking for the perfect outfit and I realized one thing: I suck at shopping! For the past few times I went out I spent hours looking around, tried a few things on, decided to get them, then put them all back on the rack before I left the store. Not productive at all!

    I did pick up a pair of cowboy boots, though… still haven’t decided if I’m going to wear them for my session yet.

    I was talking to my wonderful girlfriend Janet about my dilema and she was SO helpful. She got so excited for me she started looking up different outfits for me to consider. This is what she came up with…

    1. i think the color mint would look nice with a light brown cowboy boot. mint is very in :)

    2. a striped dress would add some texture to the landscape you’re photographing in and would draw more attn to the subject: you!! :) maybe pair it with a jean jacket.

    3. i particularly like the denim look with cowboy boots. its more laidback, yet chic! very “in”.

    4. red would be a good color with neutral brown boots too. and it would look very nice against a yellow or green nature background. think color blocking!

    I put together everything she suggested on Polyvore and tadaaaa! (Thanks for all your help Jan!)

    What do you guys think? If you have any suggestions, please share..I’d love to hear from you : ) And to all my clients- I’M SORRY! I had no idea it was this hard choosing an outfit!

      I think maybe a nice light colored tunic (mint or peach :D) with some dark skinny jeans would go well with the boots. 😀

      leener, i should just call you, but you should have a GOLD outfit for sure!!! after all, this is your GOLDEN year! 🙂 (gold would definitely go with those boots!)

      I vote for the mint green or the striped dress. The denim is nice, but a bit too casual. How about a long gold necklace?

      I know you’re going to look absolutely stunning, even if you wear a potato sac! I can’t wait to see how they turn out! Have fun!!

      Anything with a pop of color. Love that peach dress! I think bright color matches your personality and it would totally pop in any background setting 🙂

      I like that you even give boots a personality lol
