My Stylist Hat

You see, I wear many hats.  It pulls me in many directions and often causes me to be very stressed.  Nonetheless, I love and appreciate all the opportunities I am given to experiment with different "careers".
There's the retail sales associate hat.  The dance teacher hat.  Annnnd....the photo stylist hat.
I probably won't have time to do a full blog entry this week because I'll be running around like mad, as I always do when I wear my stylist hat.
I freelance as a photo stylist for local magazines.  This means that when a magazine has a photo shoot (generally a fashion photo shoot) and they want to make it look "fabulous" (or so I like to like) they call me to put it all together.  This ranges from finding hair and makeup artists, scouting locations, finding/booking models, planning the schedule and mainly gathering props and putting together outfits that I borrow from various retailers for the photo shoots.  It's a lot of fun, but it's also a lot to manage because it all usually happens with quick turn-around on a tight schedule.
Anyway, I'm getting ready for a photo shoot on Wednesday (while slimly maintaining my retail job and heavily teaching dance) and then Chris and I will be off for an MLK weekend ski trip with friends!  So I'll be away from the blogging for a few days.  But I thought I'd leave you with a few pictures from my last photo shoot for the January 2010 bridal issue of PORTICO magazine.

Corey Nolen was the talented photographer and he was gracious enough to share a few images with me from the shoot.  Here are some of my favorites:
