Burger Time with Chris Crois Photography

Sunday night I met Chris at a 50s style McDonalds for our third shoot together. I believe that this was one of the most entertaining shoots I've done, there are some interesting people out at 10pm.  Since we were close to the street and next to a stop sign there were people hanging out of their cars taking photos of up with their phones. We have fans!

Half way through the shoot two couples got out of their car and walked in the McDonalds and a couple of minutes later one of the men walked out and asked for a photo with me. The rest of his group came out and started narrating my every move, It was really hard for me not to crack up.

The workers at McDonalds were extremely nice and allowed us to take photos inside, the inside is like stepping back into the 1950s. 

It was a fun night for sure! There are more photos from this shoot, to see the rest of them visit my Facebook page: and make sure to "like" Chris Crois Photography's page

My Turn as a Blonde

I have been busy, I love my blog, but I've had so many things to do this summer and it's been difficult to do everything I want to do. I always have so many things I want to accomplish in the day but my mind is making plans for 10 people, I over plan myself every day.

I had the pleasure of working with Thomas P. Woodward ( again at the beginning of the month. I had my first shoot with him in April of this year and posted about it in my post "A Day in the Life"

I love modeling and acting since it gives me the privilege to step outside of myself. In my latest shoot with Thomas P. Woodward we decided to go with a Marilyn Monroe, blonde bombshell theme.

My Mommom's gold dress got a chance to be showcased at this photoshoot. It's one of my favorite 50s dresses

I am looking forward to the photo shoot we have planned for this week. To see more photos from this photo shoot visit my facebook page at

Movie Spotlight: Pleasantville

Have you ever wished you could beam yourself into a T.V. family? I did this a lot when I was little, I watched a lot of T.V. especially classic shows. My all time favorites were The Munsters and The Golden Girls, I always wanted to live with The Munsters since they were such an awesome family, everyone thought they were so weird but they were so loving.

Part of the reason I love the movie "Pleasantville" so much is the main characters actually get beamed into a T.V. family.

"Pleasantville" came out in 1998, my parents got it when it came out on VHS. I watched it and instantly fell in love with it, I notice new things every time I watch it and I understand it a lot more now than I did when I was eight years old. 

I'm sure that "Pleasantville" helped to spark my love for vintage, I really wanted a lot of the clothes in the movie. 
 Reese Witherspoon's character complains about wearing her 1950s bra, she said "I could, like, kill a guy with these things." Personally, I love the "bullet" bra look. 
 The mother, Betty, wears a lot of smart suits in the movie. I would love to raid her closet.

Look at those fantastic glasses

I could watch Pleasantville over and over again and not get tired of it. The movie is visually stunning and the plot is very thought provoking. People often think of the 50s as a perfect decade but it wasn't the paradise people make it out to be when they get an attack of nostalgia. 

So, what are your thoughts on Pleasantville?
