higher than the ceiling

August 20, 2015

Woo almost Friday! Had a roller coaster week with figuring out errands at home and traveling back to San Diego days after. I promised to post earlier this week but was pulled back by all of the catching up I needed to do! My apologies :-( Here is the second set of my shoot with Alver!

Aside from hopping over the fence and risking our lives (we were so daring! anything for photos!), we really enjoyed ourselves in this beautiful and white atmosphere. It was perfect in every angle and every corner. We shot in so many areas and Alver was so talented to find different spots in the Bates Motel to reflect the different styles of my outfits. Even though we ended up with cuts and bruises, it was definitely worth our time and efforts! Especially since I drove 2.5 hours up to LA from San Diego ;) I was not gonna let the fence stop me!

Let's talk about the look-- The minute I saw this cowl top at Urban Outfitters, I knew it would be such a stunning stand alone piece. The brand Truly Madly Deeply -- exclusively being carried at Urban Outfitters -- definitely told me that it was something very unique and extraordinary. The taupe color of the top was exactly what I was looking for, to fit into a setting like the Bates Motel.

Alver and I worked really hard to produce different poses and with his encouragement, the more I moved, the more he was able to capture candid and natural moments. I was ecstatic to see how the photos turned out and to be honest, these were one of my absolute absolute favorites. Thank you so much Alver! There is still one more look from the Bates Motel that I have yet to showcase.

Please be sure to check out TRULY MADLY DEEPLY on on both their web site and on Urban Outfitters! You will also find your girl featured on their Instagram, too ;-)

Stay tuned for an upcoming post on more shoots for the summer and keep up with me on my Instagram! Wish you all have a great rest of your week and hope you enjoyed these photos as much as I did! xoxo
