My neighbors are so rad. Every night at the artist's community where I live is like a uber-creative childhood slumber party. I love all of the goofy shenanigans we get into. The other night we decided to do an impromptu awkward family/band photo shoot for Picture Day. I have a slight obsession with cheesy things from the 90's so I, of course, adored every minute of the shoot. I'm really happy with how the photos came out! I think they look pretty authentic without looking like we tried too hard.

Here are a few of my favorites:

One of the things that I think can really make or break something that is intentionally and ironically cheesy is attention to detail. I had a ton of fun taking and being a part of these photos, but I had equally as much fun getting the color/glow of the photos just right.. I also got a special thrill out of creating and placing our "Picture Day" watermark on all of the photos. I know.. I know..I probably should tell the world about that.
