photoshoot at Treft.Punkt Studio

A few weeks ago I dropped Riggs off at my sisters house in Anchorage and spent a seriously fun couple of hours at Treft.Punkt Studio for a photoshoot. I was so sick with crazy seasonal allergies, my nose was completely congested and my eyes were weatering like crazy - not the best scenario for trying to look beautiful in pictures, ha. Luckily, a few eyedrops later and my eyes stayed less-red and dry long enough just to make it through the shoot.

Mitch was taking headshot pictures for use here on my blog and for over on his blog, where I've been helping out with writing and editing. Melissa Salazar-Blake did my hair, and Brenda from Gracie Boucoup worked her magic with makeup (seriously, these ladies did a great job - I so wish I would have taken a 'before' picture to compare with the 'after' lol).

Once hair and makeup were done I had such a fun time posing it up (and actually looking nice in the pictures, thanks to Shalem's guidance) and just being silly with Mitch and the rest of the team. It was a great little break for me from mama-duty and I just love how the pictures came out! I've picked one favorite out for now, but there were so many good ones that I'm going to have to purchase a few more at some point.

what I wore
pants | top | shoes (old from target)
back home in my sweats:) pants | hoodie (in fawn)
