Photoshoot Peek

My whirlwind photoshoot trip to St Louis was a blast. You might remember I was a little worried about it…I certainly needn’t have worried because I was in very capable hands.

Ashley Hercules, of Emily Miller, did both my makeup and hair, and was sweet as sugar pie to boot. She had great ideas that dovetailed with my own–though she made mine better. So professional, and so fast, too.

After we were done, I buzzed over to photographer Julia Noack’s workspace, where we shot inside and outside for an hour. Then we went to one of my very favorite places–the St. Louis Art Museum–and shot outside some more.

Here are some behind the scenes pics. We’ll have the final images in about 2 weeks.

(No official author pics were taken in the bathroom!)

I want to wear my hair like this everyday

Don’t forget to drop by Wednesday’s post to tell us about your fave Halloween costume. It could win you a stack of books, plus a copy of the new gothic anthology, DEAD ENDS!
