My new phone might be better than my actual camera. Seriously. What. But we ended up with some awesome new photos for my store Ochre and Bone! Check 'em out!

While I love using live models for all of my vintage wares because they add an element of fun and life (duh) to each of the pieces...I've found a new love. DRESS FORMS! I think they make the clothing just look so lovely and timeless. The focus is on the clothes (and not my beautiful models) which just makes a huge difference. What do you think??
I love that these photos are really beautiful. The lighting is natural and warm and the clothes just glow! It's almost inspiring enough to paint...but I'm a painting goober who just loves light so...ya know? :)

Hello lovely readers of my blog (are you still out there?!)!
So as I mentioned in a few posts before I have started an Etsy store selling vintage clothing. I have had so so much fun doing this. It feeds my need for shopping, my love for thrift stores, and even makes me some money.
Taking photos and being a model has been quite a trip. While I am truly loving being a photographer and stylist there have been some weird issues that have popped up. It's so hard taking photos for the sake of the clothes and not the artistic value! I find myself looking for funky angles and lighting to mimic all those photos I took in my manual photo class. BUT those kinds of photos often don't make the clothing look spectacular.
Here are some of my favorite photos!
P.S. A lot of these aren't even posted yet! So you all get a sneak peak. Enjoy!

I'm starting a vintage etsy because I finally have the time to do so! (Slash...I need to support my thrift store addiction.) The grand opening will be at the end of October but in the meantime I'm having so much fun taking photos of these beautiful clothes. Here's some of the photos so far!
