Halloween 2015: Mario Kart Party Photoshoot

This is coming at you about a bajillion times later than I had hoped.
Reason 1: I severely underestimated how many photos I took during the shooting process.
Reason 2: I severely overestimated how much time/energy I had available as well as my proficiency in Photoshop.

Essentially, I bit off way more than I could chew and so here I am posting Halloween photos in December like some crazy person.

But better late than never right? Photos are done at last *weeping tears of joy and relief*

My first two photos came out within the first couple of days.  I was all hyped up and excited with the big (read: overly ambitious) plans I had for the photos, and was still running off the motivation and momentum from the shoot.

Who else would I be in a lineup with?

And I was so, so, SO excited to play with Photoshop - which I previously only used to add my signature to the corners of my photos (or sometimes the middle if I'm feeling particularly edgy and creative).  But November was a particularly …

Bohemian Autumn & Thanksgiving weekend

Is it just me or was autumn incredibly short this year?  There was a week in September when it was still nice and then BAM it was suddenly ridiculously chilly.  And now it already feels like winter is slowly descending upon us (winter is coming) and boo am I the only one upset that I have this whole autumn section in my closet that is going to have to wait a whole nother year? -super sad panda-

Anyway, it must've been that last nice week in September when I took these photos then, in my boho dress and hat, without the need for a jacket.

I've gotten a surprisingly large number of compliments on this super affordable dress from Forever21 and have gotten quite a few wears out of it already.  It's a great loose style too -- I've already shared it with my pretty mama.

As previously mentioned, I've been working on improving my "phashion fotography" and have been researching ideas by collecting magazines from stores that I frequent, including J Crew and Guess …

Guildwood Park

It can't already be October because I still have so many summer photos to do! [despair emoji here]
Looking through my photos, I think these may be the last set I took in the final days of summer 2015, when my parents took me to Guildwood Park.

They had gone once before without me but mom knowing my love for parks (especially beautiful ones) said we could go again. And so I told her to get dressed up, we'll bring the tripod, and I'll make a photoshoot day out of it.

The park is pretty big with different sections of flowers, sculptures, and decorations, but not everything photographed well in the harsh midday sun.
But what did turn out great were these ornate archways. They provided some shade and gave everything a more elegant feel.

Embarrassingly enough, I had to walk through this archway countless times with the camera on timer until I got the shot I wanted.  Who knew walking was so hard?
As mentioned on Instagram, this is my very first maxi dress (whoohoo!) and I defini…
