Vintage Trailer Photo Shoot & Headshots

A few months ago when I found out I was going to be a DIY contributor to All Things Thrifty, I was asked for my headshot.  Um… yeah, about that…  Apparently selfies don’t count.

I reached out to my friend Valery from Valery Bunnell Photography.  She normally specializes in maternity, birth, and newborn photography (did you see Evelyn’s newborn pictures?!).  But with a little bit of arm twisting I was able to convince her to do a special photoshoot with our vintage trailer that I made over.

I’m sure you noticed my updated picture in the top corner of my blog awhile ago, but I thought it would be fun to share some of the other images from the shoot.  She really captured the beauty of my lil Myrtle!

The location is 5 minutes away from where we’re building our new house.  I’m in love with this area.  The beauty is breathtaking.

There you have it.  I promise I have a few blog posts in store.  I need to catch you up on Evelyn’s monthly photo project.  I need to show you how our house is coming along.

Since there have obviously been no house-projects, it’s been nice to take a little break from blogging during the summer.  I love blogging and the community, but I also love unplugging.  It has been really nice to recharge my battery.  Hopefully I’ll have some creative projects for you to see soon 🙂

      Thanks so much Mindy! You’re sweet.

  • I did notice the new headshot, and I love it. It’s fun to know the backstory and see a few of the other photos from your shoot. (I still have such trailer envy every time I see Myrtle!) I think breaks are good for the soul, which is ultimately good for the blog. I’ve missed your posts, but I know you’ll have great stuff when the time is right. 🙂

      I’m glad you understand 🙂 I always have to remind myself that my blog is a hobby, and not to feel imaginary pressure towards it. I’ve got a quick little 8 month old who loves my attention. I don’t want to miss any moments with her because I’m glued to the success of my blog. I do have some good posts lined up though. I just have to find the time to write them. Maybe one night after the babe is asleep I’ll muster the energy to do so!

  • This is absolutely charming. Love it!! I love that you included your vintage trailer in the shoot and your green outfit is adorable. Love these photos of you!!

      Thanks Katja! Green & Myrtle are basically my security blankets 🙂

  • kelly @ view along the way

    Wow! Those pictures are stunning! Myrtle is very photogenic. 😉 You look amazing, lady! Gorgeous, gorgeous.

  • The pictures turned out so lovely! That sunset is beyond gorgeous! I love how your dress matches the trailer, or should is say the trailer matches your dress 😉
