Sister Magazine

A couple of months ago Thea from Sister Magazine and Ashley of Chasing Heartbeats flew up from Berlin for a story for their newly released December issue. I was absolutely honored to be asked to be featured, but I was even more stoked for the actual shoot because I’ve really grown to love these girls. They are classy, smart, and clever. Sister Magazine is a magazine “for the digital lady” and the magazine is just like they are. I’d say it’s the perfect publication for the renaissance woman. This particular story featured 5 white blouses that the Neubauer sisters made each in a different technique: smocked, painted,  cross-stitched, printed, embroidered and I was supposed to model them. Let’s just say, I needed a lot of coaching, but these two were up to the challenge.
This is one of my favorites…ha! I’ve never felt so patriotic for my temporary home. Each and ever bead on this blouse and skirt was hand cut by Thea’s mom. Nuts.
The studio:
Ok, this next one is my absolute favorite…eeeeeeeeeeeeeeek!
Wait for it…
Boom.

Thanks Thea and Ashley for such a fun day! Now, run on over to Sister Mag to check out their best issue yet.
