Nissa dress photoshoot

It always amazes me that this:

Can come from this (plus a really great photographer and a super amazing model):

(I used nearly 20 different white fabrics including eyelet and lace)

This is the new and improved design for the Nissa Dress! I’ll be detailing the new pattern in a post soon.

You can see the best pictures of this dress in my shop, but I thought I’d share some behind-the-scenes pictures here.

We took pictures at a church. To get a good background the model did some climbing 🙂

The bouquet is made of oregano blossoms from my garden. I think it adds a nice touch without taking attention away from the dress. And as you can see in the next photo, it was a fun prop too.

This particular model was such a joy to work with – she’ll be appearing again for sure!

One last aside, I entered this in the Zibbet Wedding Challenge and although I didn’t get in the top 5, it was still featured here on Pinterest!

On Tuesday, the day before my 20th birthday, I got my hair cut.

Here’s the before picture with my long braids. Unbraided it reached tailbone, as you can almost see in the second picture which was taken in April when it was an inch shorter.

Here it is after. It’s now elbow length, which is just shy of my waist, and the ends aren’t split and tangly! I also got face-framing layers to help blend the hair that’s growing back after the great shed of 2011.

Quinn of The Source did my cut. I also let him style it – this is not my normal texture, if you hadn’t noticed 😉 I’m loving it!
