Purple Monsters


   Top: Thrifted Overalls: Old Navy Shoes: Doc Martens Lips: NYX Liquid Suede in Amethyst

I am now 6 months pregnant and the majority of my clothing no longer fits. For my son’s 1st Birthday I decided to finally purchase some maternity pants and bought these overalls at Old Navy (they’re not maternity overalls but I bought them 2 sizes up!) On President’s Day, Savers was having a 50% off SALE and I scored this worn in graphic tee for $1.50! Rugged worn in shirts can get pretty pricy so I like to look in the Men’s T-shirt department for gems.

”I am my own muse. The subject I know best.” – Frida Kahlo

In college I studied The Mexican Muralist Movement with focus on Diego Rivera & Frida Kahlo. This morning, I came across a Frida quote that really resonated with me. I am not a photographer, and with my husband at work I had no one to take my photos (which is usually the case!) Feeling inspired and determined to create my vision I thought about Frida’s self portraits. If Frida could look through a mirror in order to paint herself then what should stop me? I decided I could take my own dam pictures and so these are the results.

This past weekend we attempted taking pictures for a Blog post by some train tracks in South San Francisco. With my son entering his terrible two’s and I expecting our second child, Rome has been a little monster! Although our son usually comes along for our mini photo shoots, Saturday was a no paparazzi day. Rome would not let me go and did not want his Dad anywhere near me. Hence, the lack of shots and details. I must say I find it quite cute that my son refers to me as ”mine.” Perhaps next time we will have to do a drop off at Grandma’s house.
