Anyway, I had my first shoot with Madison since 2011, and it was well-overdue. Especially since I've gotten my 50mm. Such a refreshing experience to be able to photograph a person who has been one of the closest to me. I'm really glad we're talking again, I think this will be healthy for me and my photography since I believe that some of my most beautiful photos are of that lovely lady. I have some shots complete but I'm still working ever-so on the photos I took of her :D. I have some photos from that day I'll be sharing though <3
In other news, the day after, I decided to go to a new vintage store that has opened up downtown called The Bearded Lady. It's an amazing and intriguing little store! It's bright red store front, great prices, and superb 50s and 60s selection makes it drool worthy for me <3 I've ran into to way too many vintage stores that have that are washed over with cheap and easy 80s pieces, but this store is filled with stuff pre-70s! I'm super excited to start shopping there, honestly. I have a few photos from the store's inside *below! my shoot with Madi.
ALSO: Some Self Portraits and Photography at the very very bottom :3
More photos under the cut xo!

Do do DO go visit it, take a look, and you should find at least one little feature you'd like! I'll definitely be visiting again and picking something out and hopefully getting more photos! <3
So onward to extras! Just a photographic update as to some photos I've taken lately.

Okay, that's all for now darlings! Hope you're having an amazing summer now that we're running into August and the weather should hopefully get a little colder haha. I can't wait for fall. I feel like fall doesn't last long enough!
