A Rose in the Rough

As Aaron has become more enthusiastic about his new photography hobby, we thought it would be interesting to incorporate some more art and technique into each fashion post.  Originally I had envisioned to shoot this outfit in the middle of a dirty dumpster alley, or in front of some sort of rotted old barn to add a chaotic background, but this backdrop was kind of neat too.
Dress: Old, can't remember where I got it from
Ballet flats: J.Crew
We still have much to learn about photography, but adding bits of art/emotion into these shoots have made it so much more fun. 
Have a great weekend!
Drugged out Grace.

  4. Christy, you are ethereally beautiful. Love the composition of these shots too - I wish my hubby had a photography hobby, it would be a nice alternative to the self-timer :)

  8. Tell Aaron to never stop being fond on photography... fashion shoots like this one are worth it! He definitely has an eye for composition, and obviously has got down all the technique.
    And he's got you, he couldn't ask for a better model! I think you two totally achieved the "Rose in the Rough" theme, he captured perfectly how delicate and dainty you look in this. The contrast of your pale skin and dress against the dark, autumn-y background is superb.

    Daily dose of Grace is dangerously adorable, as always.

    Take care and have a good week, you and your whole "team" :) xxx

  12. i think these are great photos!!! i've become obsessed with photography too! there's just so much too learn. really is a lifelong learning experience. well worth the effort. my bf is pretty busy these days with work and trying to get into med school, while volunteering and a whole bunch of other things, so unfortunately not as much time to practice all the things i wish and the look i have envisioned! glad you're enjoying it. love the creative photos!

  15. This is so gorgeous!! I think Aaron is doing such a great job in photography - these all look so professional! Does he want to do a tutorial? haha, jk. but seriously, there is SO much to learn about photography - i don't know how people narrow down what they like/what works for them/etc. I opened photoshop and closed it immediately because I was already overwhelmed! I love that this has a "rustic" feel to it and the background is perfect! Good job both of you, to the model and the photographer!! :) Hope you had a wonderful weekend. The daily dose of Grace is sooo adorable - I kind of want to be in her state of mind right now, she looks quite relaxed and happy hehe
