If you had asked me even just two or three years ago if I ever thought I’d be hiring a photographer to set up my own blogging photo shoots, I would have said, “Yeah right!” Up until now, Soren (or Easton) has taken almost all of my blog photos, and they have really done a great job. Because we have little kids, we are somewhat used to using our street or our garage door as backgrounds. It works, but as someone who is always striving to make things better and to grow in what I’m doing, it isn’t my ideal situation forever. I worked with Sarah last month on our Nickel & Suede photo shoot and we just clicked. I finally decided to take a chance, and last week we met up again – but this time, for my own photos. It took some time for me to warm up to the idea of taking photos on the street with someone new, but in the end it was really fun. I think that working with a photographer or two will be a great addition to the blog and take some of the pressure off of me. (It was so nice to have someone else comb through the 300 photos and edit them for me!)
And on another note, I got an email this weekend from a super nice reader asking for more thrifting posts. She had noticed I was wearing fewer thrifted items, and you know what? She was right. I wanted to mention it here because I’m not planning on moving away from thrifting AT ALL. I definitely still love it, and I’m not thrifting less because I think I’m fancy now and because companies send me clothing. The only reason for fewer thrifted items is because I’ve had so much less time to thrift since starting Nickel & Suede. I’m working a lot during the day and at night, and thrifting has just fallen off my radar for the last few months. Keep up your own thrifting! If you want to read my tips for thrifting, you can find them here and here. I will be back at it soon too!
Have you been thrifting lately?
