mini photo session

A few weekends ago I met up with one of my closest friends. We live in different cities and instead of one of us having to travel all the way we decided to meet halfway, what a genius idea. We had big plans of sunny yet chilly afternoon winter walks with lots of picture taking. Unfortunately I somehow forgot my camera at home and once we arrived at our destination we realized it was VERY cold outside, as well as VERY windy. We tried to go out but our ears and fingers pretty much froze off and our hair was whirling around like crazy, making portraits extremely challenging.

Regardless of the weather we had a great time cooking up pancakes, drinking tea and chatting till 2am. On our last morning we decided that we needed to take at least a few photos. The little annex we were renting actually had pretty good lighting so we had a mini photo session, indoors.

I am rarely in front of the camera, so that’s always awkward. However anytime I have had my pictures taken it’s almost always been Naomi, it helps knowing the person that’s shooting you and being comfortable with them. I like it when she takes my photo because we are continuously bouncing ideas back and forth between each other, giving everything a try. She always let’s me kinda do my own thing, however I feel comfortable, without too much strict direction.

Below are a few of my favourite pictures from our little creative morning shoot. If you are curious to see more of Naomi’s work make sure to hop on over and like her Facebook page here.

An another note…I love lettering. I had way too much fun doing these tiny pieces. Do you remember this awesome coffee project?

Love the photos, Alicia! Those socks rock, by the way! :)
I’m absolutely in love with that couch/corner!

Thanks Kelly, the socks are soooo comfy :)

These photos look awesome! I’m rarely in front of the camera as well so I try to take advantage of any time I can get.

I know, same over here. And it always helps if you got a friend snapping pictures of you.
