yes. i may have gone a teensy weensy bit overboard on this shoot haha. but hey! i had an idea and ran with it! i have been dying to do this shoot for quite some time now. shout out to my sister, amanda, for helping me put together the costume! she was helping me glue EVERYTHING! it was no easy task. we probably sat there gluing the details for more than 2 hours. it was nice bonding time, though, so that was okay haha. i have been planning this shoot for a while. i even made a pinterest inspiration board (NERD ALERT haha). thankfully alexi was more than happy to take on the task of being my model (she loves it!). i had so much fun experimenting with the makeup.
to me, this is what photography is all about: letting your imagination run wild. i love being able to bring my ideas to life. don’t get me wrong, this wasn’t exactly how i was hoping it would turn out, but it works perfectly. it turned out the way it should have and i love it! all i wanted was to have fun and do a shoot for myself. to let my creative juices flow without a specific outcome in mind. i LOVED it! what about you? :)
