Blast from the Past – Me in Selfies

I was going through old files, and can we please look at how much I’ve grown. It’s astonishing to see how young I looked! Also, apparently I was doing selfies way before I got Instagram.

This was January 2007, and one of my first attempts at a photo shoot.

This was January 2007, and one of my first attempts at an “artsy” photo shoot. This is the original editing I did as well.

If this doesn't describe being 15-years-old, I don't know what does. Original editing, minus the collage.

The amount of photos like these in the early years is WAY TOO HIGH. Duck face and peace symbols? With BOTH HANDS? Hello, 2007.

July 2007, a couple weeks after I turned 16. This was at Governor's School (6 week summer program for gifted students, I went for music). This is where I started branching out with my style, hair & makeup...thank goodness.

August 2007. I've always loved this photo for whatever reason. It's sooo early 2000s.

May 2008. I had way more freckles back then. I was also obsessed with my eyes.

2009

One of the only photos I took of myself in 2009. The rest are all taken by friends. This was probably the only year that ever happened.

2010

December 2010. Apparently all of my pictures during this year were taken by others, too. As we can see, I start to go a little more out-of-the-box and so begin my string of out-doing myself in selfies.

2011-2013

I started the blog in 2011, so most of my selfie-shoots since then are contained within these archives. See some of my favorites here, here, and here.

Of course, who would I be without adding a recent shot, taken today:

Back taking photos

It’s been a while, but I’ve finally gotten back into photography. It helps that my friend is making a CD and releasing an EP soon, so I had an excuse. Here are a couple of my favorites, edited with a (totally legal) copy of Photoshop:

It was a lot of fun to do this shoot. We ended up with tons of really great shots. I can’t wait to post her song stuff when her website gets set up. It’s possible yours truly will even be harmonizing on one of the songs! Eee!

I did her hair and makeup. She recently cut like 20+ inches off to this adorable pixie. I used a straightener to curl the ends out a little and make it look a little messy-chic.

For the makeup, I followed this photo. I couldn’t find pigmented enough eyeshadow, so I ended up actually using lipstick! I still feel like a genius for that. There’s no eyeliner and just a little brown mascara, since her hair is naturally very light.

This is just a sneak peek, and the fully edited photos will only be available on her website (coming soon), but I wanted to show you guys what I’ve been working on!

To My Cousins

Watch in HD!

To my lovely cousin Brandon–and my soon-to-be cousin-in-law–I love you both so much and I’m so glad I had the opportunity to take your photos! I can’t wait for the wedding. You two are beautiful people, inside and out.

Old Friends

This is my friend Sarah. I decided to put it in bold, because she sort of looks like me and I would be very offended if people commented saying, “Wow, Britt, you’re skinny now!”

If the thought crossed your mind, here’s what I have to say about that.

Sarah and I have known each other for around 12-15 years. I was 5 when I moved to the city we ended up both living in 1996. That’s a really long time to know someone and still be around each other.

Well, we reunited a while ago and–what else do I do with friends but take photos? So this is where we ended up! Click on the photos in the gallery below to make ’em bigger.

A Photo Shoot

I did a lovely photo shoot with the even lovelier Alexis last week. It turned out wonderfully! She was really fun to shoot with. Thanks to her for giving me the opportunity to do something I really enjoy!
