Such a busy blogging week last week, no? I'm proud of myself :)
Alright, a new week and more to share!
How was your weekend?
You may wonder, what does Emma do when she's not absorbed in higher learning, or socializing, or making a mess when she's home, or putting in the miles on the treadmill? Funny you should ask! 2 weekends ago, she did this:
That's right! She modelled in a wedding show! My friend and (former - don't get me started!) co-worker Jessie asked if she'd be interested, of course she said yes. She had done a smaller one for Jess in October and had a great time, but this was the real deal - makeup, hair and a runway!
She rocked it, I have to say. Her fun spirit and beautiful smile showcased the dresses perfectly and it was a lot of fun to watch - taking pictures wasn't so much fun, spotlights, strobe lights, coloured lights, moody lights, dark lights (huh?) - well, you get it, the ISOs and shutter speeds got a work out!
Here are a few more shots:
The make up theme was "Kim Kardashian". . . hello! Fate or what?? (Now, I hope this doesn't offend anyone, but Emma is not used to having her hair done like this at all, and when she saw the combination of hair and makeup as she sat there in her hoody and yoga pants, she said "I look like a Pentacostal Tranny!" If you know Emma, that's just so her. I think whatever I was drinking came through my nose at that point! Once the dresses were on though, the look all came together!!)
Look at that turquoise feather! Fun stuff!
this one got the biggest reaction of the whole show (15 models, 4-5 dresses each!), hard to tell in the pic but it's very "Grecian" and when she let it down it just floated:
this one with the one shoulder strap got a good reaction too:
I love this picture. These were the most challenging to get, you can tell by the lighting and the grain in them; it was the end of the show and all the models came out as did the owner and staff:
If you're wedding or prom dress shopping, I highly recommend Bella Promessa. Janice has impeccable taste and Jessie is in her element managing the boutique. The concept is wonderful; think "Say Yes to the Dress" on a much smaller scale!
Thanks, Jess, for including Emma, and thanks, Emma, for being so beautiful :)
