I am so thrilled to finally share these photos from a photo shoot I modeled in last December. Modeling is something I don’t get to do very often, but I really love it! I modeled a little in high school and college, but at 5’2″ I’m fairly limited as to what I can do – much more commercial than fashion. So when I get the chance I’m always up for some modeling fun!
I was lucky enough to get asked by my dear friend Erin of Enlighten Events to come up to DC and participate in a super fun shoot. She’s an amazing wedding & party planner and specializes in floral pieces – she hand made the carnation dress above! You would be shocked how heavy the dress was once the flowers were all applied. 
Another quick note, it was below 30 degrees the day we shot! No joke, at many points throughout the morning we had to stop shooting so that I could put my UGGs on so that I could feel my toes again. I had to keep holding my breath so that it didn’t show up in the photos. Luckily, I don’t think you can tell at all! It was also the first time I’d put on pointe shoes in years…sort of like riding a bike, except I swear my feet have grown a size or two.
Our photographer was Pamela Lepold of Pamela Lepold Photography. She did an amazing job and caught some amazing moments with the light and the DC scenery. Even though it was cold it was beautiful to take in the National Mall early in the morning before the tourists took over.
I hope to work with Pamela and Enlighten Events again soon!
