I hope I can humbly say that this was my idea... tee hee... I just really wanted to see all the cool and creative and interesting bloggers we have in our group have better photos and headshots on their blogs! Doesn't everyone deserve to have a few photos of themselves that they like to share with the world?? Then Jenni put together the whole thing, really, and got 7 local photographers/bloggers, 5 stylists/bloggers, several local jewelry sellers and a hair/makeup artist, and refreshments for this super fun event.
Macey took some photos of the event space and the group--can't you just feel the happy buzz and creativity!?
So a lot of bloggers wore a favorite outfit or put together something special for their headshots and however they wanted to use the photos. But I, unfortunately, did not plan ahead and had nothing new or super exciting to wear. ;) But that's okay, because I pulled out this necklace that I made spray paint transformed, and these DIY wedges that I have been loving. Two DIYs in this outfit!
Alex took photos of me! Here they are, some more delicious than usual How to Wear DIY photography... ;)
So, are you inspired? Round up a photographer friend and get some pretty photos taken, if you don't already have them!! Dress up your blog, show off your best self, and be proud! ;)
A big thank you to all of our wonderful sponsors. Each of these companies/individuals/blogs contributed in making the Portland Bloggers' Strike a Pose event successful and affordable.
