So I took a poll on Instagram about blogging my Goodwill/bargain finds & y'all answered!!! So here I am! I looove thrift store shopping and i've been wanting to do this for awhile. So here you will find all my secrets to finding the coolest stuff all while doing it on a dime! One of my favorite "Grandpa" sweaters this winter is actually from Goodwill. I found this in the mens section. So one secret to goodwill is... it's okay to shop in the mens section if you're a female! I find most of my oversized sweaters over there. Also---SHOP GRANDPA SWEATERS! I'll say it again-- shop grandpa sweaters!!! They are typically oversized and comfy! My favorite thing about this sweater is that you can pair it with leggings, jeans or with a flannel around your waste! So basically you can dress it up or down. My favorite is dressing it down. I am a leggings girl all the way- oversized sweater, leggings, & converse/tennis shoes are my signature winter outfit. This sweater brand is Round Tree & Yorke and it retails for around $30ish? (I couldn't find exact sweater due to it being older) and i paid $4.99. I do know Dillards carries this line but I couldn't find the exact sweater. Click HERE to shop the collection at Dillards. Anyways, I made my camera team ( Micah&Mylo LOL) get out today in Galveston and capture me wearing it so I could show y'all. So enjoy! <3 I looooove feedback! Please ask me any questions or just let me know if y'all liked this or not?!!!
Can't wait to blog more soon!!
I had sooo much fun hanging out with these two! Their bubbly/sweet personalities made these pictures so genuine and beautiful. The chemistry they had was also sooooo adorable! Like a photographers dream!! I'm currently setting in Hawaii, in 80 degree weather, drinking a glass of sweet tea. We had a supppper rough day traveling yesterday, so we are taking it slow today and relaxing.. We were suppose to leave out of Tulsa at 10:58, but we missed our flight because our flight actually left at 10:40! So we were thrown onto stand by for our first flight to DFW and our second, DFW to LAX. Long story short we ended up making all of our flights and not having any time in between to chill outside of being on the plane. IT WAS TERRIBLE! I ended up getting sick on our final flight to Hawaii and if you have ever flown to Hawaii you know the flight ain't short. (yes i just used ain't)( I'm an okie, duhh) Mylo Drakey did amazing, as always on all the flights! But we finally made it to our little beach house. Micah, Mylo and I took a walk on the beach this AM and around the little neighborhood we are staying in. I really wouldn't mind moving here!
Anyways, that's all for now. I only have 1 session set up while i am here, but i am really looking forward to being away and just getting to hang out with Mylo. This past fall was crazy busy for my business, but i am blessed. Here's to Mylo time, Hubby time, & sand between my toes! talk soon---
love from Hawaii,
GSP & TRAVELING ADVENTURES
This session was different from the others because I hold the Kerr family veerrry close to my heart, they're like family! So to say Morgans session was a breeze is an understatement. I loooove when my subjects let their guard down and agree to all my crazy ideas. & believe me, I have some crraazzzzy ideas that sometimes I am surprised anyone falls through with. Morgan is an absolute doll with the cutest personality. She is verrrry bubbly & always laughing! Which makes it very easy to capture her authentic self. I usually stay away from props because I feel like the picture is too structured, but Morg went to Italy this past summer to stay with a mutual friend we have and brought her globe and passport & I think they turned out to be some of my favorite pictures we took that night! So lesson learned, always, always, always!!! keep an opened mind. Not just in photography but in life. If you have been following me as a photog you can kinda tell that seniors are my jam. I LOVE capturing their young pure hearts. Don't hesitate to book a session. My senior packages start at $150. Head over to my contact page and lets chat about how we can personalize your session!
Here's some highlights from my senior session with Sarah. She's the sweetest little thing and she is so beautiful inside & out! Sarah tried to tell me she wasn't photogenic. *que the eyeroll cause I'm here to tell y'all she is! Her little bubbly personality made it so easy to capture her unique and genuine self. Seniors - if you've been on the fence about booking a session DONT BE. Take a look at how well Sarah's pictures turned out & let me capture your last moments as a senior! <3 xo
I am falling in love with lifestyle sessions. Y'all, they include coffee!!! & I get to sip on some while I take the pics. Win-Win.
If you know me, you know I love red heads. Their skin, their hair, eyes. UGH They just have this natural glow. I'm jelly. Both of my sisters are red heads and I was born with brown. *eyeroll*
During this session we had a few visitors. Pepa (mama cat & yep its name is pronounced like pepa-pig) and two of her babes! So precious!! So if anyone is also looking for a kitten, holla at me. Because these babes will need a home soon!
when you have friends as pretty as mine... you let the pictures do alllll the talkin'... sooo yeah. Here's Chas.
I'm not really sure what excited me more- this shoot or the footlong corndog. I can't be the only one. Its a FOOT long corndog people. BUT besides corndogs, Taylor & Aury killed it! Their chemistry was jaw dropping. Fair shoots are so much fun. I was a little tired from learning so much from mine and Chan's mentor sesh with Chelsea, (Check her out too, yalll! @chelseaxbo) I feel like the fair is the one time it's okay to have a ton of people in your shot. It kinda adds to the fair vibes. Chelsea led Chan and I around and it was so fun shooting with her!!! It def won't be the last. I hope you enjoy these pictures as much as I enjoyed my corndog.
