Crave photoshoot

Yesterday was a full day for me. I did a photoshoot for Crave, which is a city guide that comes out every two years and features 100 women in business. I'll be in the next edition of Crave Austin, and since I'm the only blogger they're featuring, it was important to me that my two page spread reflects the fun attitude of Adored Austin (no serious photos of me at a desk, please). Susan Beth Sloan, the photographer, did two set-ups yesterday: the first photos were at my house where we got photos of me trying to blog in the chaos of my house (kids toys everywhere, Jude crying), shots of my animal jewelry collection, and shots of me taking my own style photos with my tripod. After that we headed to Savers for my portrait. I chose to shoot at Savers because so much of my wardrobe is thirfted, and y'all know is one my favorite places to shop in all of Austin. Here are some photos that Intern Rachel was able to grab between the shots Susan grabbed:

"Crazy style bloggers: now available at a Savers near you."

"I will conquer this thrift store!"
(and uh, sorry about that near crotch shot, everyone)
I'm wearing my nasty old cowboy boots (Steve Madden) and the vintage frock I picked up recently from Texas Thrift.

Crave Austin comes out in the fall and in addition to showcasing women owned businesses in Austin it will be full of city tips and coupons. I'll be selling a few copies (priced at $20) and the girls at Peacock Plume (who are also featured) and I are going to try to team up for a launch party. I may include a piece of animal jewelry with each copy I sell, so I'll keep you posted on all that as more info comes to me.

Huge thanks to Savers for letting us shoot inside. I can't wait to see how the rest of the shoot turned out!
