Photo-Shoot Link-Up

Wednesday, August 14

Hey lovely ladies! I'm so excited to host this photo-shoot link-up today! 
Like I mentioned in my last few posts, lately I've been so inspired by the idea
that God is the creator of beauty, and delights in creativity! 

Edith Shaeffer says this,

"Man has the capacity both for responding and producing,
for communicating as well as being inspired.
It is important to respond to the art of others,
as well as to produce art oneself. 
It is important to inspire others to be creative
as well as to communicate by one's own creative arts"

My hope with this link-up is that
we can respond to the art of others,
as well as allow our "art" of photography to inspire each other! 

Each month on the 15th
I will be hosting this photo-shoot link-up!
I'll be posting the theme of each link-up
a few weeks before the 15th so you have time to take your pictures!  

My beautiful friend Tabitha took these photos of me! 
We had a blast dressing up in our sari's and taking pictures
The day of our shoot I was certain I knew how to wrap a sari...boy was I wrong!
I had to enlist the help of the neighbors to do the job...which entailed lots of giggling on our part.
No fancy backgrounds were used..just normal scenes like the vegetable market and the fruit stalls!
I hope you enjoy them:)  
 {sweet Tabitha and I}

 Hope you enjoyed the shoot! Now it's your turn to link-up below! 
and just for fun, i'm going to try to do this link-up every 15th of the month! 


I haven't had time to make a button link yet,
so feel free to copy and paste this,
and insert it into your blog with my link below!
{sorry! i'm in Nepal, haha!}

  3. I love your make up! My aunty just bought me two new saris this week, I feel spoiled rotten. I've been wearing them long enough that I'm at least confident in my one way of wrapping the sari, I know there are multiple other ways that I still don't know.
    I love your traditional jewelry, too. You two look like you had fun!

  27. Dear, you look beautiful! Love these shots and the incredible colors there. Took a little difference take on "get creative" and compiled a good many pictures from recently to link up so a bit of a different photo shoot from me. Maybe one day I'll be ok behind a camera by myself! Haha. Can't wait to check out some of the other links.

  30. I love these! I've read back to this point so far, and I just love your writing and the amazing heart that shows through! And in this post, you're living out a sort of secret little dream of mine - I've always thought a photoshoot in a sari and all the trappings would be so fun! Idk why that's the particular ethnic dress I'm drawn to, maybe because women always look so radiant in them. Beautiful photos, beautiful person - can't wait to read back some more :-)
