Garage Door Gate 2015


Yes, most of my pictures this week have been taken in front of my garage door (you guys are so observant!).

It’s because winter is a real fun thing to experience in the Midwest. It’s been covered in snow and dipping into the negative temps, so we’re basically all huddled up in front of the fireplace here (no joke, Coopy and I did this Monday night) trying to stay warm.

So Garage Door Gate 2015 occurred. I can pretty much get set up for my photos and take them in under 2 minutes here (not that you can tell or anything…hah!) and not get frostbite (and still have outfit photos to show). Not the coolest look or the best shots, but definitely something that we can all work with (I hope)!

Especially when I’m wearing the skirt that I won off The Husband on a bet…sucker. (Just kidding, love you, honey!)

    Hey, you have a very pretty garage door. I have no complaints! Also, red flippy skirt FTW :)

  • Hahaha yes, garage doors for the win! We take most of my pictures on our porch, two steps from our front door. The only surface not covered in snow!

  • Hey, whatever works! I wish I could take my photos in front of the garage door, but the lighting is really crappy in that location :(
