BEHIND THE SCENES // SUMMERLAND SPRING SHOOT


The Summerland shoot at Megan’s new house was really nice. Just Megan, Skye and myself, making spring scenes and checking out all her beautiful new stock, like this lace TBA dress. So good. Skye said that Megan’s house is like a dollhouse, and I totally agree. I’ve never really had the dream of buying a house, but if it was buying THAT house, I might reconsider! One of my favorite things about shooting for Megan (other than the obvious, which is that she’s my buddy and we work well together) is that she never fails to provide good snacks. Never, ever underestimate the importance of snacks on a shoot! She made me two cups of Paris tea, which I haven’t had in the house in a while. Someone (Frankie?) once told me to put sweetened condensed milk in that tea, but I still have yet to try it. YUM. And hey, check out my pink leather cat coasters in use! I’ll have some of these sets at the Beggar’s Banquet sale this weekend.


Photoshoots are also a good excuse to buy really impractical cheap glittery platform shoes, which are good for almost nothing except being photographed. Feel free to swap out “photoshoots” for “fashion blogging”, although I’m happy that those days are far behind me. Thank you to everyone else for buying all the stuff so that I don’t have to! Hot tip: a lot of Goodwills in Portland are filled with crazy like-new shoes that are perfect for photoshoot times.


Muffin has a new trick, basically just ceiling cat. Megan told us the tragic tale of how Muffin’s head got stuck in a jar as a kitten, poor little critter!

    I also want to know about the mermaid/tub time illustrations – a shower curtain, maybe? Whatever it is, I want it bad. And that cat is hilarious!

    April and Alicia – it is in fact mermaid wallpaper, was a big selling point for the house!

    Ah, this made me laugh – I bought a pair of cheap gold glittered platform pumps late last year and at the time I thought, ‘I’ll wear them, they’re fun’, but they have seen more photoshoots than actual outings.

    Lovely photos, I imagine that the shoot results are gorgeous.

    Buying a house is a great goal for the New Year. Make sure that resolution has some back up with a life insurance policy. You can get a quick and easy quote from IntelliQuote in just minutes. Find out how little it could cost to keep (and protect) that home for future generations. http://bit.ly/y7Strw
