Behind the Scenes of My 2014 Valentine's Day Header Shoot

      Hi, everyone! I'm taking you "backstage"with me to check out my Valentine's Day header shoot. DM: Valentine's Day, after Christmas, is my favorite holiday to shoot headers for. So get comfy, and follow me!
Here's ME (under the blanket) last night watching the Grammys with Mom.
DM: Disappointed with the Grammy winners. Sorry, but Daft Punk annoys me like no other and Lorde's "Royals" is a catchy song but has nothing on Macklemore and Ryan Lewis' "Same Love".

Valentine's Day collar and part of the inspiration for the backdrop.

Chalk colors.


The beautiful, talented, wonderful, sexy, hawt, gawjuss, smart, beautiful, gawjuss model.

My rockin' photo shoot playlist.

DM: Covered in chalk, from my jeans to my phone case to my camera strap to my face to my dog. :p

Blank canvas.

The language of the homeland (German)!

  16. Oh, Ma agrees with you abouts the Grammy's! She forgots how much she loved watchin' all the performances, butts she agrees with you, Macklemore and Ryan Lewis should have won, butts I loved Pink's performance and well Ma loved almost all of it! She loves seein' groups or singers she might not take a listen to.
