A few weeks ago, I did some photo shoots for TruLu Couture with Lindsay of Lindsay Hess Photography. We shot at this incredibly cool "barn" a good clip south of Charlotte. I mean, it really was an honest to goodness barn, but I have to say it was the nicest freakin' barn I've ever seen. The horses were hanging out with us (even though horses kind of freak me out: big, stupid animals make ME skittish), the weather was AH-mazing and it was all about the fields of buttercups!

I'm still waiting for the photos from Lindsay (foot tapping impatientlySmile) and I don't want to blow her wad, or mine for that matter, so I'll only give you a few snippets of the photos I took that day. Consider it a sneak peek of sorts!


Buttercups as far as the eye could see!


Inside The Barn!


This horse just looks crazy, right?


Our lovely model for the day.


Ever done hair in a barn? Our hair stylist was a pro for sure!




A new TruLu Couture fascinator and BUTTERCUPS!

Vintage wedding gown + horse tack stuff = amazingly pretty!

I thought the impromptu buttercup bouquet I made (tied with some lace ribbon from Michael's, no less!) was the shiznizzle. Oh, and I'm so loving this headband I made for one of Tabitha's brides. The wind died down for like, a nano-second, allowing me to take this shot! It was crazy-feather all over the effin' place!

Trying to be all artsy-fartsy. Did it work?

Another new TruLu Couture fascinator and the still lovely BUTTERCUPS!

I have been so lucky to have met some great folks here in Charlotte so far, photographers, make-up artists and hair stylists too! Once I have Lindsay's real pictures, I'll give some shout-outs to all the peeps involved. Don't you just love BUTTERCUPS?!?

I think you're giving the photographer a little competition! Wonderful pics!

That buttercup bouquet is shockingly beautiful. It's ALL beautiful. So how do you like Charlotte compared to Nashville?
