Dress – Ruche
Shoes – Clarks
Earrings – c/o This Enchanted Pixie
When I’m shooting I tend to forget about myself, in that I forget until I’m coming home and totally losing the light that I have not even one photo of the day’s outfit. That’s how I got this one: coming home from a recent shoot, totally losing the light, hence, all the graininess. You can’t even tell that the dress is a dark blue.
That backpack there holds my on site necessities – camera, lenses, extra cards, etc. And yes, I wore heels to a shoot. First off, the method to my madness is that I was shooting headshots for a man, and in order to get the best shots, I wanted to be either shorter than him, or almost at eye level, so I needed that extra little boost of height. Secondly, you wouldn’t be the first to say that I don’t have to dress up since I’m the one behind the camera. But I would argue that:
A) I’m meeting a client, so looking good (not old jeans and t-shirt) is important.
B) I’m in the image business (pictures) and what does it say when I’m not at all conscious of the image I create.
C) I like to dress up. I would much rather be overdressed than under dressed for the game of life.

Great thought process! I think the heels are conservative height, and comfortable enough to stand in all day.
Love the dress.

I adore your dress, it's such a lovely print and shape! And I love that you wore heels with it too =)
I definitely agree that you can dress up for your work if you want to – in fact I think it's really important to look good when meeting any clients! My uncle recently got married and his wedding photographer was just wearing a faded old green t shirt and black trousers, and we all thought it was inappropriate for the event, especially the church. You can't really go wrong if you dress up, even if you are a little overdressed!

love this. your outfit is adorable and i like your philosophy on life – you're right, its always better to be overdressed 🙂 (except i would argue in summer, sometimes then it is best to be underdressed because i feel like half the time it turns into something outdoorsie and fun 🙂
excited to be your newest follower!
