Second -- Lemme share with you a lil' obsession I have ... around this time of year, I tend to float towards red snowflakes ... and peppermint. I dunno if it's the red and white goodness that catches my eye or some psychological pull those two things have on me. Well, my holiday decorations include red and white snowflakes, so it was time to share the love with my peppermint obsession.
Hello?! How gorgeous is Patricia here?! This is a different look than how you saw her in THIS blog post, and I love it. She's very versatile and I dig it and her! She is just a joy to work with. She knows what to do with very little direction from me -- which is good, cause I'm horrible about posing models!
It was pouring rain yesterday ... but that didn't stop us! Heck, I even added snow behind her ... had to get my "snowflakes" in somehow! haha!
The shoot took a turn to cute pin-up and Patricia rocked it. But of course, I had to get in some beauty shots, as I was super happy about the makeup I came up with. Yes, that's real peppermint on her face!
I'm also pretty, gosh, darn impressed with my peppermint hat I made! It's amazing what a lil' doll hat, styrofoam, plastic wrap, candle garland, ribbon, and real peppermints combined with hot glue can do!
And how cute is this Christmas tree? It is always smack dab in the middle of our Market Square and decorated the same way, in the same colors every year. Why wasn't this place first on my mind when deciding on locations for the shoot. For this one shoot ... thank you Mother Nature for screwing up my plans! And thank you Patricia for playing along on the day before Christmas Eve ... even when you had to finish holiday shopping!
Thanks for checking out my blog and make sure to give love to Patricia HERE.
