I feel...silly.

As promised, here are some of the..outtakes from the photoshoot at the LeDuc House. Those of you who know me as a physical human being (rather than just words and pictures on the interwebz) know that my usual state is either laughter or sassiness. It could be argued that these photos show a truer side of me than pensive looks and gazes into the middle distance - but whether or not they make me any more attractive is debatable!

It is really, really hard to be serious around my friends.

I was asked to be sassy, so I gave them sassy.

Showing off the nameplate in the book - it belonged to a Lizzie Lockett. How awesomely Victorian is that name?!

At the very end of the shoot, I was quite hot and sweaty. This is what it looks like when I enjoy a breeze.

McKayla Maroney.

This is what happens when you jump up and down in a cage crinoline - I call it The Jellyfish.

I will leave you with one final picture. A friend passed along the image on the right, an original from the mid 19th century, some months ago. As we were taking pictures, I had the sudden inspiration to recreate this image. I wish I could say I was ashamed, but I've gotten a bit of a reputation for my unmentionables being on display, but that's a story for another day...

I would like to request a "Blue Steel" pose for the next shoot please!

There were a couple shots that were a little bit "Blue Steel", but not on purpose and not in a good way. Next time, Blue Steel, just for you.
