TX/OU Weekend in Dallas, Texas.

I'm stuck in a rut. I've been contemplating ideas for the photos I have from a shoot a few weeks back. I had all the girls jump or give me some sort of movement in the photos. Originally, I had thought of the concept of Rose, their older sister, trying to catch the trouble making twins who've are having too much fun causing havoc, all the while dressed to the nines in their sister's wardrobe. While I was editing I got stuck. I don't quite have the photos that I like together, but I'm still working. I thought it'd be nice to show you guys some of what I have in hopes for some suggestions! Lol. Editor's block, help?
Personally, I think I need to go back and make Rose look a little less shopped. That's probably the main reason I'm not too keen on the second photo.
I was driving the other day and Madonna's 'Jump' came on my iPod and it hit me -- I was inspired. I love that song. I had it on repeat the summer before I moved to the big city. The lyrics mirrored my life to a tee at that moment, and I love that it wasn't a ballad, but a upbeat pop song 'cause those are my favorite tracks. I felt like at that moment in my life, that song WAS me. Then I thought about the jumping pictures of the girls I had taken, it fit so well. The story I wanted tell through the images. So I'm going off that. :)
Listen for yourself.

Last week the streets of Austin were invaded by the fashionistas of greater central Texas area! This year was the second year for AFW and has come a long way from last years. The organizing and scheduling for events was much improved, but after speaking with people involved, there's still room for improvement. Don't get me wrong, this is a great thing. Austin has so much potential and it's fashion weeks from here on will only become nothing short of spectacular. People will swarm here for the live music in the Spring and fashion week in the Fall! ;)
Here are some pictures of me out and about this past week.
P.S. I'm very horrible with remember names.. I do apologize.
& excuse the hot mess that is myself.

I didn't get to make it to the awards on Saturday night because I left town to Houston for a dear friend's Birthday, but I did hear through the grapevine that my photographer friend, Andrew Chan, won! Congrats!

Here's a preview of what I'm working on with Rose ft. Linda + Lydia. It started as casual day of playful dress up and some family quality time. It was Linda's idea to put on a fashion show using Rose's closet. They girls love going through her closet to find clothes that might be too small for her and a perfect fit on them. I guess they learned from me, lol, I'm always going through Rose's closet, too. Also, all the of the outfits you'll see were styled by the girls. There are some great ones! Can't wait for you guys to see.
What came of it was totally unexpected and I'm working to share it with you guys, soon. Video + Photos to come.
