addictions + pastels

Since I've been home, I've complied a list of places I want to at intern this summer. Will I actually go back to NYC to do some free labor work? Maybe. Let just say NYC is the place to be & the place where your bank account will run dry. However, after last summer, I am more eager to get back to the city to work- even if it is for free. A little secret... I actually liked going to Starbucks for coffee. I, finally, added the Michael Buble Christmas station on my Pandora. And, well, I CAN'T STOP LISTENING. Considering last night I watched the Michael Buble Christmas special, I have swooned over him. All I need is for Florida to stop being a pansy and give me some weather below 75 degrees! For goodness sake, it's December and I am going to the beach.

Santa's Enchanted Forest + Winter

So... the other day it finally struck me that I still have this blog going. I blame the fact that this semester was a BITCH. Hard work pays off, right? Christmas break has finally arrived. I'll start off my winter vacay with the last shoot I did. It was shot at Pebble Hill Plantation in Thomasville, Georgia, which is about 40 minutes from Tallahassee. While it was only suppose to be a 1-4pm ordeal, it ended up being 10am-6pm. Did I mention we were all hungover the next morning? All-in-all this was by far my favorite one & I couldn't be more proud!

The idea of the shoot was to recreate famous Christmas characters. We started off with Santa & the elf, then made our way to the toy soldier. We added the sugar plum fairy and gingerbread also. But no holiday shoot was complete without a Christmas tree and some New Years Eve cheers. Considering most stores in Tallahassee had sparkle written all over them, it wasn't hard to gather a New Years Eve look.
