Photo Shoot Recap

Good evening Beautiful,
TOMORROW WE GET THE NEW CAR!! I’m really excited – can you tell? J
This week has been somewhat productive. I got a TON of work done yesterday, work my upper body workout in, played an hour and a half of beach volleyball in the crazy heat and came home to broken air conditioning. You can only image how amazing last night’s sleep was, as in not at all. Today I did a lot of work again, but I had to forego my workout. My one goal this week was to work out every single day…
If I double up on a workout on another day, does that make up for it?
The reason I didn’t work out today was because I had a photo shoot tonight and had to be at my friend/photographers house for 6, so I knew I wouldn’t have time to get home, shower AND get to her house for 6, so I didn’t get sweaty so I didn’t have to shower. Genius plan! However, by the end of the day I was so foggy and couldn’t concentrate. Lunch time workouts are great for getting your head back into the game!
My diet hasn’t been amazing this week. Both nights I ate rice with dinner, and today I ate Bounty, those chocolate covered coconut bars… it was SO GOOD and I thought I deserved a treat since I haven’t had one in a while. So I ate that on my way to Tara’s house.
The photo shoot was REALLY fun, though it was 100% different than the first photo shoot we did together… these are some examples of the last photo shoot we did together…

… Tonight’s photo shoot had somewhat of an “Alice in Wonderland” theme to it. It was dark and mysterious. When I got to Tara’s house, she held out a really long, black dress that she wanted me to wear. I was totally down to wear it, and of course the dress was two sizes smaller than my size because Tara is the more petite person you can ever meet. So I go into her washroom, stretch the dress over my body, and needless to say, the slit in the side of it literally comes up to my hip and is wide open. We made our way down to her car, and I had a huge Lululemon bag covering up the slit (as best as I could) in case I ran into anyone on the way to the car. Luckily, I did not.
When we got to the scene of the photo shoot, it was like a mini parking lot behind an old industrial building in Liberty Village. There were like sections in the parking lot that have different mini-areas in it, it’s really cool, partly industrial, partly natural. She brought a lot of props and some amazing outfits and costume jewelry so when we got there, she showed me what I’d be wearing.
For the first “person” I was shooting, I was in the black dress and I tied my hair back very tight, and Tara has these black lace bunny ears with lace that covers your eyes. It’s creepy… but really neat! The second outfit was “Mad Hatter” and I wore a really cool, really old top hat, a fur vest and my hair was crazy under the hat. The third outfit was “The Queen”, and I wore this really old vintage white dress with a fur vest and a makeshift crown out of an old vintage necklace, and the last outfit was “Alice” and I was wearing a blue silk skirt as a dress, a denim vest, a huge gold necklace, my hair was in a bun on the top of my head and I had orange lips.

Here's what I looked like when I got home..

IT WAS SO COOL! I can’t wait to see the final photos and share some with you! You can check out other photos Tara's done by clicking on her badge on the right hand side of my page, it will take you directly to her website!
