Style Stories: Slightly Dramatic.

Slightly Dramatic.

Truth be told, I’ve always been slightly dramatic. Ever since I was 5 years old, attempting to tap dance on a wooden board while watching old B&W Little Rascals episodes, I knew I had a flair for the dramatic which is why I later got into choir, theater and now indie film making. These are older photos from a photo shoot I did when I was just out of high school, hence the not-so-good skin and way longer hair. My sister also did my makeup for this shoot (ironic because she’s a full blown MUA these days) and the full coverage cosmetics aren’t really my thing anymore, but drama still is.


I’m not really a fan of staring at the camera when someone else is holding the lens; I always feel like I’m being judged or examined just a bit too closely. It’s much easier for me to put on the clothes, face, and life of a character and then get in front of the camera then it is to stand in front of it as myself. There’s a vulnerability in playing a role, but it feels more freeing to me than being myself in front of a camera which feels, at best, really awkward and nerve-wracking. Despite being a bit dramatic, I like my privacy and I find that I’ve always been a bit reserved and quiet, even if I shout and sing loudly on stage or portray an obnoxious character on screen. It’s just easier to let it all out when you’re not being yourself.


At the end of the day, I really wish I still had these boots!

    I don’t like the camera because I can never do a real smile. I married a man who can’t and we have 4 daughters who can’t. Family pictures are the worst! 🙂 I love the boots too!

    Awesome boots indeed. I am different in that I nowadays actually enjoy having my photo taken, but maybe that is because I am seeing doing an outfit shoot as an act of creativity 😉

    I think those pics turned out quite interesting.

    Love to see you doing a style post, I would definitely commend having some standing pics next time (especially if you are talking about your shirt) 🙂
