Welcome to my own personal Dream Land.

Dreams have only one owner at a time. That's why dreamers are lonely.
-Erma Bombeck

"Dreams are real while they last. Can we say more of life?
-Havelock Ellis

“Of course it is happening inside your head, Harry, but why on earth should that mean that it is not real?”

On the last day of 2013, kamakebelieve and I got together for a little bit of a road trip.  From a wedding portrait session for a bride and groom, we came across a really wonderful location that seemed much more exciting than our usual Florida locations!  A giant hill and a little country road seemed like the perfect background for a shoot.  We had even bigger dreams to go even farther out into the countryside, but since since some of our party had to get home earlier, we "settled" for the hill location.  We didn't have a solid idea together of what we were going to do with styling, so I told Kaylin that I would just bring a big suitcase of vintage from my closet, and I told Kaylin to bring her vintage Doc Martens, since I could envision soft styling with the grunginess of the softer vintage clothes I had.  She also brought two petticoats, one of them mine, that she had used on a shoot a few days beforehand.  Going in my closet, I remembered the two Gunne Sax dresses that I had bought on my California trip, and since there were two, they seemed like the perfect thing to bring.  I had also bought some little bralettes from Forever 21 a few weeks beforehand for shoots, so those went in the suitcase too.  While shooting, neither of us had solid ideas in mind of what we wanted to achieve, we were just going out to have fun! We joke that Emily and Brooke are our muses, but really it's pretty true!  I've worked with Brooke a lot, and Kaylin has worked with Emily a lot.  So, all together, we were kind of a dream team of sorts! The word that kept playing through my mind when shooting that day was freedom, both in a conceptual sense and also in a sense that I felt like I was finally shooting what I had been craving! When our final stop for the day was an abandoned house, the story started clicking together in my mind.  The house shots had a sadness to them and a longing for something new, so they became the beginning of the series, and the other two sets were about the girls' escape from their home into the beautiful countryside! The overcast weather made for perfect soft and consistent lighting throughout the day, and all of us had so much fun working together that it was definitely a hit! Since I had so many cute outtakes and behind the scenes from the day, I figured I would limit the actual photos from the shoot in this post and show off those instead! So, I won't put the whole series in this post, but feel free to find them in my gallery and see them all!
