"Timeless" is the word my lovely friend Kaitlyn used to describe this outfit we put together for her to wear on this shoot.  The inspiration started with this sweet little 50's vintage plaid dress I picked up at Nobody's Baby in Eugene.  We added the trench coat from Banana Republic, a few vintage accessories, and chose this rustic footbridge as the setting.  The project would not be complete without another fabulous hair and makeup creation by Molly....the side swept undo, the soft eyes, the red lips.  Beth was part of the project too, another pair of eyes on the whole scene is so helpful.  We had hoped for a cloudy morning, and it was just perfect.  Although a few times, I had to have Beth hold the reflector to block the sunlight peeking through the clouds onto Kaitlyn's face.  This was shot with my Nikon D800 and 85mm lens at f2.8, shutter anywhere between 1/250 to 1/640, depending on how the sun was peeking out, ISO 100.  Edited in photoshop using actions by Totally Rad.  The ladies of this project can be found on Instagram @kaitydid4848 @mrsmollybrooke @retrogoddess217.  See more photos from this shoot in a previous blog post.    



  1. I'm so happy with the outcome! Big thanks to Molly and Beth, this shoot wouldn't have been complete without you...I'm starting to wonder if this is something I should seriously pursue thanks to you ladies.

    1. you're so beautiful Kaity and such a great model, love how you picked up on the vibe I wanted here! Just let me know if you want to do another project ;)

  2. I love how gorgeous these shots are, how gorgeous the outfit is too.

  3. Such a beautiful outfit - I love the pink tones and the check pattern. The backdrop is stunning too. And the umbrella adds to the olden-day feel of it :) Thanks for your sweet comment on my blog and I'm glad to have stumbled upon your lovely blog by way of it :)

  4. Kaitlyn looks gorgeous in this vintage dress. She's a beauty! I'm always a bit envious when I see your photos of Instagram too ^^ xo

  5. Words cannot express my gratitude for the time spent to create these beautiful photos to share with my children! Special thanks to Beth and Erica for lighting and make up (I will incorporate into my regimen). Thank you Shanti, gave me a chance to see myself "outside" of my own perceptions and mirror. Your heart comes out in all the pictures, it didn't feel like work but "girls hang out",your a Natural. Thank you! Theresa

  6. Many people feel sports wear is nothing but wear used while playing any kind of sports. This is correct to some extent. Sports wear like tracksuits look awesome and add to your persona. stoned emoji
