It’s funny how fate can jump right into your inbox.  The day I decided to start this blog I received an email from Kelly Mintz at SEE Shore Photography looking for a model for a teaching shoot.  Not having any good pictures of myself was on my list of excuses as to why I couldn’t start a blog.  Here we go…

On the day of the shoot, I realized pretty quickly that the photography student, Vicki Hendrix, was really talented.  It was fun to model for Vicki while listening to Kelly teach.

For the shoot, we went to Spencer-Pierce-Little Farm in Newbury, a historical 230-acre farm that was home to a Lithuanian family for most of the twentieth century.  I wasn’t aware of the history of the farm until I just googled it now.  See, I’m half Lithuanian.  Pretty cool connection! This little farm is full of old world charm, New England style, and I totally love that.

I chose this outfit for the shoot because it is truly me.  It’s comfortable, and it can go anywhere at anytime.  The true test of a good outfit, don’t you think?  I could never go into a store and buy an “outfit.”  To me, an outfit comes from various sources and becomes uniquely your own.  I love to bring clothes home and see what pops out of my closet to create a unique outfit.  I have less time to put things together these days, which makes it even more of a challenge.

The girls and I sometimes have “fashion challenges” where we wear clothes or accessories we haven’t worn in a while.…or ever.  It’s a fantastic closet cleaning game.  Try it in your closet.  It’s amazing what treasures you can find in there!
