Project:Dress Up #1

Finally!! I went out today with Julia to work on my project. She is fabulous and so gorgeous. Julia is actually going to be helping me with the project with hair and makeup and outfits, but I thought I would use her as a model too. She is stunning and totally rocked it today even with the crazy wind blowing around us.
The idea for this project of mine is called, DRESS UP. I ALWAYS loved playing dress up with my moms old clothes when I was younger. As I was thinking of what I wanted to do for this project, I went from idea to idea trying to pin point a title. I am a child at heart and feel so free and alive when I can just do or wear anything that is funky and mismatched. I love to be different. And in these images I am portraying a little bit of myself.
Also, with this specific shoot Julia and I made headbands for her to wear. She is wearing the one I made in the image below, but you have to see hers too! Such a creative girl, which is why I've asked for her help with the DRESS UP project. I have tons more from her shoot, but I HAD to post at least one for now.

I hope that this project of mine will also encourage you too, to DRESS UP every now and then and be a child at heart.

As I was viewing the photos my 3-year-old daughter said, "Who is that?" I said, "No one we know." She said, "It's Queen Esther, I think." Enough said. Very cool photos!
