A couple Sundays ago, I had the pleasure of playing dress-up and modeling for my friend Sara's Adelie website.
Our friend Vanessa from Little Gray Pixel shot the pics, all 600-plus of them (!), going way beyond the call of duty by hitting the ground to get all sorts of angles.
She was all about giving me tips from America's Next Top Model, telling me, "If it feels wrong, it's right" and cooking up steamy scenarios that involved me waiting for men named Carlos and Antonio. As she posted on her site, our photo shoot suddenly turned into a telenovela.
Sara was our incomparable stylist, who put together outfits and accessories I never would've imagined. But they worked! All of them! That's why she's got the great store.
It was a very girly (and long) day. I used to roll my eyes when models/photographers complained about lengthy days on photo shoots. But we spent a good 5-6 hours at the Korean Bell park in San Pedro, changing outfits, practicing poses and sometimes just goofing off while doing a little salsa.
So here's to Sara and Vanessa, who helped this mama rock out in front of the camera at least for a day.
