New At Due Donne

lace dress by Nicole Miller

Today I'm sharing a few photos from another little fashion photo shoot over at Due Donne boutique.  They have some beautiful new lace dresses in lovely spring colors.  Although it was a bit chilly and rainy when we took these photos, you would never know.  Thanks to our beautiful model who posed and twirled for me despite the cold.  Once again I find a stunning and unique background over at Fifth Street Public Market in Eugene.  I just love these pastel iron windows and white walls, and this area was covered to keep us out of the occasional rain drops.  Personally, I love the more casual outfit below.  The days are getting longer and the camellias will be blooming soon, but there is still a chill in the air that makes it the perfect weather for jeans and a cashmere shawl!

Freudian Slip Valentines Day Lookbook

Blush Lingerie's Reverie gown

Imagine my delight when Lisa over at Freudian Slip asked me to write a guest post for her blog.  As a local Eugene fashion blogger and photographer this was the perfect opportunity for me to photograph some of the beautiful products in one of my favorite Eugene boutiques.  I first took the product flat lays,  then had a friend model, and topped it all off with a day of shooting with the Freudian Slip babes themselves!  Personally, I purchase all of my foundation wardrobe at Freudian Slip.  As someone who takes a lot of care in how I dress, it is very important for me to have well fitting and supportive undergarments that compliment my clothing.  The bras and panties from this shop never disappoint and last a long time.  The boutique is full of well structured, beautiful pieces with every lovely detail just right.  If you are looking for the perfect Valentines Day gift for yourself or a lady in your life, it's a great time to stop by the shop.

In the cover photo above, Kylie from Freudian Slip staff models Blush Lingerie's Reverie gown.  See the names of the other items featured in this post listed below each photo collage.  These items and more can be found at the Freudian Slip shop located in Eugene's 5th Street Public Market.  For more inspiration you can also check out their website at or like their Facebook page.  Also wanted to shout out to Ashley Blake Bontrager, who was the photoshoot makeup artist for the Freudian Slip staff.  I really loved the looks the girls had and it always makes a shoot go better when the make up is professional!  All the photos for this lookbook were shot in my home studio using a combination of natural light, reflectors, and off camera flash.

Desert Color Palette

These are some of my favorite snapshots from a recent weekend trip to Tucson, AZ.  Love the winter desert color palette!  This was a little change from the Oregon rain since it was nice, sunny and warm.  Although I can feel spring already back here in Oregon.  Seems like ever since I started taking photographs all the time I look forward to each season change with a new enthusiasm.  It's as if I've never seen the spring before.  I watch the light and the colors and feel so grateful.  Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!
