Bohemian Lizz

I hesitated to post this because I don't want it to seem like a "look at me" post. But with much encouragement from friends, I decided to post it anyway. The following photos are part of a greater project that I actually did for work. We used other models; I styled them and was the creative director for the project. But I got the opportunity to model for this project too. The concept of the proj was creating different recognizable yet unique styles. The look I modeled was 'bohemian' (not a far stretch for me). 

Here are some pictures from my shoot:

I have to give props to my friend and photographer Kristen Boozer on her work. She's great with the camera and always keeps fashion in mind when she's shooting.

Gotta love jumping pictures. Lord knows I do. I always make all my models do a jumping shot or two. It makes them laugh and gets them excited for the shoot.

I think I'm really just proud of the styling. I did my own makeup and hair; we used a braided headband and an Enzo Milano curling iron for beachy waves. I use that thing all the time. I wore all my favorite vintage wooden jewelry plus a buckeye necklace borrowed from a friend. I wore no shoes (because bohemians are too carefree for footwear, and who doesn't love being barefoot?) and a thin cotton and rope shirt as a dress.

To be honest, this is the first editorial shoot I've done where I liked most of my shots. I'm usually pretty hard on myself when I model. Maybe that's women in general. Maybe I watch too much America's Next Top Model and I haven't "smized" enough in past shoots. Whatever the reason, I was feelin' this bohemian shoot, and I had a lot of fun.
