New Hair and a Sneak Peek of Our Photo Shoot

My hair has been pretty much the same for the past few years. I had a pixie cut with highlighted blonde hair.  I recently decided to grow out my hair, which is a nightmare.  If you have ever grown out short hair, there is an awful mullet stage.  I started growing a tail on the back of my head.

We had family photos scheduled, and I pretty much went into panic mode. I was in luck when I got an appointment with Tera Rae Stephens.  Tera Rae had wanted to get her hands on my hair for quite some time. Tera colored my base color to add in some more blonde, and she also highlighted the top of my hair. She then cut my hair to make it less of a mullet, and also so that it would grow out properly.

I just realized that I had not posted any pictures since I got my hair done. Well, I posted one with my new glasses over the weekend. But I was a hot mess in that picture.  I took this self-portrait Sunday night when we got home from a wedding that we went to. It is a little grainy, but hey it is an iPhone picture taken at 11pm.

November 2011And a little side-by-side before and after from the day that my hair was done by Tera. These two pictures were taken within hours of each other. It is amazing how my skin coloring changes with my hair color. I think this is my perfect color!

Before/After October 2011 HairAnd here is a little sneak peek of our Fall/Holiday Photo Shoot with DrewB. She posted this on her Facebook Page, the night of our photoshoot. I can’t wait to see the rest of our photos. She is amazing, right? Seriously, love her photography!!!!

Ya, I know. I clean up well. Sometimes, I actually wear a dress, do my hair, and even wear make-up. Miracles do occur. And doesn’t Angry Kid look adorable? I think so!

I just found your blog via Drew B. & I LOVE your pics! The colors are fantasmic, really! I also like your outfit so very much, that I was curious if you would/could "source" it for me? Not trying to be the new creepy girl, but I think it is a perfect ensemble & now I'll dream of it until I can buy it for myself. Enough now, I'm definitely new creepy reader...... :(
