There have been several requests lately for headshots for professionals and small businesses. This is Psonya. She has a very important position with the State and needed headshots for an upcoming seminar which she will be speaking at. I enjoyed having the opportunity to work with her!
So my ac started blowing warm air Friday and I noticed the unit thing outside wasn't even running. We stayed gone most of the day because I know nothing about ac's and thought it was all in my head. I cut it off because I couldn't get in touch with anyone and I'm pretty sure I sweated enough to provide fluids for an entire county. Saturday I left for a while and came back to shower before going to stay with my friend Nikki. I literally sat nekkid in my living room for two hours and my boobs were sweating to a point that I kept having to wipe them with a bath towel. No, a rag wouldn't have done the job. Went home around lunch today and was there less than 15 minutes and I had to change clothes because I was sweating so bad. Someone came to check out the ac and said it may take a while, so I took refuge in a cool place, with a psychotic bitch that needs medicine, four very disturbed dogs and a garage full of motorcycles. I have no idea why I'm iBlogging about this or who would even care to read it. I don't even read it. But I'm trying to pretend to be busy so the dog that tried to break my leg off earlier will stop trying to eat my hands. And his owner just asked, "are you sexting in my bed?".
No, just sharing with the world that I've had sweaty tatas for a good part of the weekend. Who would want to sext with sweaty tatas? I sure as hell wouldn't. Now, dry crusty tatas are a different story...
And this is a photo of a photo of Nikki riding a cement lion.
Mom has already seen these, but I wanted to share a few since I haven't posted any of my sessions lately. We went to the golf course at a country club and had a great time, as you can see. Mom blew bubbles and Taite chased them around. It was terribly hot, but that didn't stop him one bit. He even got to ride on my old rusty Radio Flyer tricycle.
This is an old article I pulled out of an InStyle magazine...
As most of us - especially photographers - know, "Boudoir" is French for a woman's bedroom or private chambers, but when we use it in terms of fashion, it refers to clothes that are inspired by corsets, pajamas and racy lingerie...it suggests a kind of saucy chic.
*Combine slightly sexy "private" pieces, such as bras, camisoles, pajamas and nightgowns, with more casual ones - making it the perfect thing to wear on a date, especially when warmer weather calls for showing a little skin.
*If you do the boudoir trend correctly, it has a built-in nonchalance. You never want to look like you are trying too hard. It's sexy and comfortable - what could be better?
Dress it down:
*Take one boudoir element and add another super-casual piece: silk pajama pants and a cotton T-shirt, a silk cami and denim mini or jeans, an eyelet nightgown or slip with a boyfriend cardigan. These would all work great.
Whatever you do, don't show a lot of cleavage...a little goes a long way!
Hair, make-up and accessories have to look effortless. No fishnets. No long red nails or kohl-lined cat eyes. And not too much perfume!
You don't have to spend a fortune.
This is an adorable, modern look that is very affordable if you shop in the right places.
*Instead of buying a designer slip dress, search for pretty ones in vintage stores or in the lingerie department. If the pieces are too sheer to wear in public, layer them or dye to a darker color.
*Seek out satin pajamas in the sleepwear section - men's or women's - of a department store. Then break up the set: Wear the top with shorts or cotton trousers and the bottoms with a flirty tank or T-shirt. Two for the price of one!
Throw on some wedges or sandals, and add some jewels. You're good to go. Bangles and belts are also a plus!
In 1939 at the beginning of World War II, the British government printed 2.5 million copies of a propaganda poster, which was never used. It was initially produced by the Ministry of Information and was intended to be a "last case scenario" to stiffen resolve should the Nazis succeed in invading Britain. Distribution was only in limited numbers, and the designer of the poster is not known. The poster was the third in a series of three, the first two which read "Your Courage, Your Cheerfulness, Your Resolution Will Bring Us Victory" and "Freedom is in Peril" were used across the country for motivational purposes as the Government assumed that the nerves of the public would be shot to pieces. The third in this set - "Keep Calm and Carry On" - were to be placed up within 24 hours of the outbreak of war. They were designed to have a uniform device, have a unique and recognisable lettering, with a message from the King to his people (since it later become "the People's War"). The press, fearful of censorship, created a backlash, and thus a lot of material related to these posters has been kept by archives.
In 2000, a copy of the "Keep Calm and Carry On" poster was rediscovered at a second-hand bookshop in Northumberland. Since Crown Copyright expires on artistic works created by the UK government after 50 years, the image is now in the public domain. The store's owners were thus able to reprint copies at customers' requests, as did others, inside and outside Britain. It has inspired ranges of clothing, mugs, doormats, baby clothes and other merchandise from various vendors, plus a book of motivational quotes. Parodies of the poster, with similar type but changing the phrase or the logo (for example, an upside-down crown with "Now Panic and Freak Out"), have also been sold. The poster's popularity has been attributed to a "nostalgia for a certain British character", and merchandise with the image has been ordered in bulk by American financial firms, advertising agencies, and by Germans.

This is what the original poster looked like:
