{Re-emerging Retro Styles -FaithWorks4U & Florabella}

I feel like I’ve been absent for a while…and I don’t like that feeling.  I’ve been wanting to blog these Retro Dresses by FaithWorks4U – I am in love with everything Faith makes (you’ve heard me say that before).  I’ve probably mentioned this before, but I think I was meant to live in the 70′s – I’m so drawn to this look/era.  Whenever I get clothing to work on for Faith I literally gasp when I open her packages.  My mind goes into la-la land and I envision what I want to do with the dresses and the shoot.  This one was one of my favorites to photograph and Brielle loved her hair in a loose, ballerina bun. On a different note: I get asked a lot about the what I do to get certain looks in my images.  I edit my photos to my liking with my own actions and for these I applied about 10%- 15% opacity using several of Florabella’s Lux II Actions. A little goes a long way.  I also love her newest set Retouch & Make-over.  She really put some critical thought about these actions when she made them.  Just thought I’d mention that.;-)

This first dress is the ’1970′s Style Square Neckline dress’.

The Simply Sweet Summer Dress.  Love both of these dresses so much!
