BOOBS! Okay, now that I've got your attention...

My pageviews have dwindled in the last month, so I decided to ask a friend to pose in a bikini on the beach. With these photos up, how could anyone resist my blog!?

Just kidding! Bryn (whom you've seen here and here) is building her modeling portfolio and asked me to shoot photos of her. I was surprised, honored and nervous all at once! Photography is still so new to me and I didn't want to mess it up. But despite 63 degree weather, sprinkling rain and surfer boys hollering, we managed to get 400+ photos and narrow it down to under 10. Here's a sneak peek of the photoshoot to hold you over until I can share the finished product!

She got out of bed for make-up at 5am. What a trooper!

We contemplated taking her photos with the sweater on...

Can you tell we had fun?

We rewarded ourselves with mimosas and omelettes after!


Thank you, my dear friend, for graciously allowing me to take (and post) these pictures. Good luck in your future endeavors! We're all rooting for you.


  1. Ha Ha looks like hard work, I must admit your title did grab my attention... I wouldn't worry too much about page views etc... I judge my posts on the comments and discussion they cause. In fact I've not checked google analytics for months now.

  2. Hahaha This looks like really fun post! I love mimosas. However, don't you worry about the page views hon. You're great, and you have many fans (Me included at #1)

  3. Thanks friends, but I really was joking about my pageviews. I'm not worried about it -- I blog for myself! :)

  4. You did such a great job with the photos - she's really stunning! And mimosas should be a reward for everything.

  5. Looks like you guys had a blast!!!!!! Umm, but the water is FREEZING right now, so the fact that your friend smiled throughout is a testament to her professionalism :)

  6. Disappointed by the lack of actual boobs. I feel betrayed.

    Maybe you should do a post completely dedicated to boobs rather than a bait and switch? May I suggest a celebration of boobs? Maybe title it, "My best post ever: A toast to boobs around the world (especially the big ones)." You could just include a lot of pictures of great boobs and your thoughts about how great they are. Think about it. I think it would propel your blog status into the stratosphere.

  7. @Anonymous: Interesting proposition. You may enjoy these posts a bit more.

  8. This post is brilliant! It's made me laugh so much.


  9. I love your reply to Anon!! That is awesome!
    Bryn is such a beautiful girl inside and out! I don't know how she managed to not look like she was shivering in 63F weather. The first pic at the top - just WOW!!
    Best of luck to Bryn! Good job with the photos Steph!
    When I see Bryn on a mag cover somewhere I can say "I know her!! We spent a weekend in Vegas!"

  10. Your friend is really pretty. This may sound weird but she girl looks so much like someone I used to work with name Gaylyn. I hope she gets some good exposure, she looks like a great model.

  11. Gorgeous photos! Do you think she would trade bods with me? HAHA!

  12. You look beautiful! Great design of the blog!!!



  13. I love the idea of the title hahahah!!! and OMG!!! your friend is really beautiful..I envy her gorgeous body...



  14. Go steph! Nice to see you take your photography serious! you're great and practice makes perfect.

    Hope the finished products turns out great.

  15. Clever! You're both so adorable, can't wait for you to visit! I've had to lay a little bit low lately, work has been demanding and I had to get a little sanity back. Hopefully this is just the pendulum swinging the other way and I'll end up in the middle somewhere.

    I wish Bryn the best, too, her pics are adorable:) Can't wait to see the rest of the pics.

  16. It looks like you had a really great time! I think the best thing to remember with photography is that if you feel passionate about what you are shooting, and that you feel that it is beautiful, then others will too! Its an art form, and to me, art is visable or tangible passion!

  17. Haha I love the second shot she looks FAHREEZING! :P hehehe

  18. GEE-orgeous! Tell your model friend she has a rockin' hot bod and a smile that is built to melt hearts. Good luck to her on her modeling career and congrats to you on you budding photography!
