If you wanted a nice photo of yourself, would you be able to find one? That was the problem Janice & I had when we needed a photo for the About page of our blog. So we decided to hire Kate who is starting a photography business. You may remember Kate, the daughter of our friend and personal trainer Karen, from our Drapery Dress post.  One beautiful day a couple of weeks ago, Kate (with her mom as assistant) took us into Old Town Alexandria for a glamour shot photo session. Old Town has lots of locations with interesting backdrops for photos, and Kate knew where most of them were.

We needed a lot of prompting:

Here are our two favorite pictures from the shoot. Black & white has such a timeless look:

While we’re not ready to get into modeling full-time, we love how our pictures turned out.  See more of Kate’s photos on Facebook and Etsy.

Check back soon – we’ll be blogging more about our new shop as we setup for the holiday season.

In the meantime, we continue to need your vote for our Zoe Boutique window to win the Old Town Boutique District Window Wonderland contest.  Please click on the link below and vote for Zoe Boutique – voting is open until December 9th.
