Haley in Old Town

Jun282010_0146

My beautiful friend Haley is in town every Mondays (now that she lives out of town, I look forward to these days when I get to see her.) I wanted to photograph her because she’s just so lovely. I just found out her boyfriend and one of my good friends as well accepted a position in Houston so they will be moving there sometime in the winter I think. I must hang out with her as much as I can until then! This outfit is totally her style. She brought over an assortment of clothing and I eyed this top out first for the shoot. She has a weakness for cutesy things from Anthropologie, but this special power of resisting temptation unless there’s a huge sale involved. She got this fabulous top half off. That’s so Haley! Good girl!

east lansing art festival!

The East Lansing Art Festival took place on Saturday and Sunday and I spent both days browsing the booths, listening to music and eating delicious food. It was so so hot though and I haven’t yet adjusted to the heat. I quickly tracked down my favorite booths to find a few jewelry pieces and spent most of the time looking for food and listening to music at the main stage. 

It was such a fabulous weekend with my friend Courtney here visiting. She met a ton of my Lansing friends and we celebrated my friend Sarah’s birthday on Saturday with dinner and dancing. Here are a few photos from the weekend!

One of my favorite booths was the leather goods booth. My friend Jenn purchased a gorgeous leather bag and I picked up a couple leather wristbands.

alison

I was privileged this weekend to entertain a guest by the name of Alison this weekend. We worked together at a small, hick-ish grocery store throughout high school and she’s always been someone who makes me laugh uncontrollably. Most notably in high school while working, we stuffed her into one of a trash bin that one may think no grown human being could fit into, but Ali being somewhat a contortionist, was able to squeeze into one. From there, I would go tell managers on duty that “there’s something wrong with the garbage door, can you please check it?” And they would stick their hand into the open and Ali would grab onto their hand. I bet you every single one of the people we convinced to “help with the trash bin” pooped themselves after that. 


Anyways, Ali came to visit and to shop for the perfect outfit for her engagement session at the end of the month. A group of us are heading to Cedar Point and she and her fiance Tim are getting their photos done at the actual amusement park. So fitting for this couple. Well, Ali was able to find an adorable dress and pair of nude wedges and as we shopped, I pulled her aside to photograph her because she’s just too dang cute.
