I’ve decided I’m going to make 2018 the year of “doing the thing.” I’ve had several things happen to me recently that have really got me re-evaluating my life and what I want to look back on when I’m an old woman. So, when something comes up this year and moving forward, I’m gonna “do the thing”. Eat the pizza. Get the tattoo. Spend more time with family. Buy those shoes I want. Redecorate. Do the photo shoot for fun! Put myself out there.LIVE! (and while this may be a little more boring, I am going to try harder at this whole “adulting” thing.)
This photo shoot with Brooke Ann Photo was one of those “things” for me. I’ve always had a slight obsession with old Hollywood starlets- I mean, to me these women were (and and still are) the epitome of glam. Feminine and powerful! Ever since I was a little girl I’ve had a thing for Sophia Loren, Brigitte Bardot, Vivian Leigh (I mean, HELLO Gone with the Wind) and Marilyn (of course). So when Brooke and I discussed doing a photo shoot and she suggested the theme “glamorous” I was all aboard! (Queue the Hogwart’s express).
I first started following Brooke on instagram a few months ago. She’s got such an edgy, moody style that when responded to my message about a collab, I was so excited to do something different! Tonight I’m sharing one of the dresses we shot at the Neidhammer, an events space on the East side of downtown Indianapolis. While small, this space is gorgeous and would be perfect or an intimate engagement/rehearsal dinner or wedding.
I seriously had so much fun at this shoot with Brooke, and I just want to say that I felt beautiful in this shoot! Thank you Brooke for making me feel like a movie star! (I’ll link her info below if you wanna feel like a star, too!)
Here’s Brooke’s info if you’re interested in booking her for yourself:
