A collection of the past

Lately I have been having trouble having the desire to take photographs. I was not surprised when I woke to a grey dull morning topped of with a touch of crisp wind. As I busied myself around the house I contemplated venturing outside. One of my friends had offered her self up for a brisk photo shoot the day before and and as it reached noon a stream of light passed through the window slightly blinding me and giving me a glimmer of hope for a successful shoot. Its been so cloudy and cold out i have had a real problem getting motivated. Around 2pm i assembled an outfit of vintage cloths that I've collected from a few vintage clothing stores over the years and called my friend kate to start the hair an makeup process.

This outfit was compiled of a bright gold vintage clutch, a belted vintage poly blend plaid oversized shirt, leggings, wool socks, and classic black leggings and boots.

At about 4pm as the sun was about to set we headed out to an abandoned warehouse here in hagerstown. It was so cold out we tried to move very quickly so i only took about 50 shots but this is one of my favorites.

This shirt and Clutch are available on my Etsy site ButtonsnBones.

  1. It's hard to stay motivated especially after school. I've been freelancing down here in nashville but the gigs are just barely trickling in. It's been hard to keep myself motivated. Just keep your camera near and find friends that will keep you creative. If that dosent work, find some cool art blogs to follow. have you seen

    im sure you've been doing anything to keep motivated, creatively. you're a creative girl and should keep your art going, you're very talented. I really like these photos btw.
