I get a lot of comments and messages asking me how I look so "perfect" in every picture. Which, makes me laugh because I just share the pictures that turn out! You don't see the ones of me mid-blink, sneezing, and freaking out about bugs. Or, the mishaps that happen behind the scenes. I wanted to share the story behind this day, and the photoshoot with this dress.
I was all ready to walk out the door to go on a shoot with my fabulous photographer, I bent down to fix my shoe, and the zipper of the dress separated. Not only did it separate, but then I couldn't zip it back down. The dress was completely open on the side, broken. I figured that there wasn't going to be a shoot that day, with the dress in it's state. Then, my mom said she could sew the zipper shut. At first, I laughed. Then I said, what the hell- sew me up! And that is exactly what we did. So every picture you've seen of me in this dress, I was sewn into it!
Then, I tried to get out of the dress in the bathroom of the arboretum. I figured I could just untie the back, and slip out of it and switch into another outfit. Well, I was wrong. I found myself stuck half way in this sewn-up dress, and half naked in the bathroom of a packed arboretum. Next time you think I am perfect, graceful, or glamorous- just picture that situation!
I did make it out of that dress eventually, finished up the shoot, and walked away with a funny story. I'm calling it a successful day. Life gets better when you learn to laugh at yourself.
til next time,
