Sarah (1/2 of Hello Holiday) officially takes the cake with the coolest family photo session with her husband and little boy. Shot by photographer Amy Lynn, I’m getting soooooo many Mad Men vibes. They really killed it with the ’60s summer in America aesthetic.
That last photo is my favorite. The disengaged look, the elements of whimsy against the setting of ordinary suburban life. Yes yes yes and a million more times yes.
Days before I went to Portland, I got an email from a Portland-based photographer, Caitlin, saying if I’m ever in Portland, she’d love to photograph me. She had no idea that literally two days later, I’d BE in Portland, and three days later, we’d be shooting together. How’s THAT for timing?
Caitlin showed me around some beautiful streets in the Laurelhurst neighborhood of Portland. We shot at this amazing home that had all these figurines in the front yard. I was afraid the owner, who came out while we out front, was going to shoo us away, but instead, she told us we could shoot in her side yard if we wanted to. I feel like in general, people in San Francisco are used to people taking pictures all the time, so they tolerate it, but every once in a while, you run into a mean one. But never will you run into someone who will actually OFFER their property for pictures. The people in Oregon are so nice!
’70s style tees are having a moment right now and I’m fully embracing it. I grew up watching The Brady Bunch (reruns!) and am perpetually inspired by the laid back California style (this is one of my favorite fashion stories ever).
I took these pictures right after I got my hair cut. I got a few inches chopped off and my bangs trimmed, so I had that nice light and bouncy hair feeling that you only get after it’s been freshly cut. I love the look of suupperrr long hair mermaid hair, but I think this suits me much better.
