What happens when you get your friends together for a little "Girls Afternoon In"? I guess that would depend on who was coming out to play and what exactly "in" means. Four friends: one photographer, one photographer/model, and two models in the studio. I have to say this was one of the funnest days I've ever had.
The coordination of this photo shoot took about month; planning clothes, makeup, set up, etc. We decided to challenge ourselves and use only a one light set up. (Just for fun.) We knew we were all going to take turns getting in front of the camera. (Because you know how much I love to be in front of the camera...wink, wink.)
The ladies arrived, we cranked the music, set up the studio and then went about getting dressed and putting on our makeup. (I was determined to have a Faux-Hawk.) We had mounds of clothes, heaps of shoes, and cases and cases of makeup. Oh boy....here we go.

I was so nervous. It took me quite awhile to warm up to being in front of the camera. I did get amazing direction from the ladies. It is such a freeing experience to do something that you are terrified to do. Now I can say, "Been there, Done that" and I might just do it again.
Have you ever done something that you were terrified of? Was it exhilarating?
