Have you ever heard this... "Do what you love for a living and the money will follow." I don't know where I got this from, but I heard it somewhere a long time ago. When asked "What do you do for a living?" I've always joked... play Barbies!
Meet my Barbie!
This is Theresa K. one of my favorite model friends. We played together like good little girls. Today we did a fashion shoot for Luxury Las Vegas magazine celebrating Barbie's 50th birthday. I got to turn her into Chanel Barbie, 60's Barbie, Malibu Barbie, Birthday Barbie and finally Princess Barbie.
Here are a few sneak peeks from my snapper.
Not only does Theresa make an awesome live Barbie doll, she is a very very wonderful person. She is so sweet, sensitive, genuine and loving. Working with her is just like play, not work.
On a side note, another highlight of my day was shooting in Baumann's Rare Books. And this is what I got to hold in my hands.
This is a first edition Gone With the Wind. Oh man! I was freaking out! I literally wanted to cry, I LOVE books, I love that they represent, enjoyment, escape, learning and the talent of one who has something to share with the world. It gives me chills when I see a book that has been passed down through time. This one was only $4000 dollars! "Chump Change" Rachelle (my best friend who also loves books) called it as I frantically sent her a text to tell her what I was holding.
Take care of your first edition Twilight books girls, your posterity will appreciate it.
Honestly in recent years I have dreamt of being a librarian or even better a professional Bibliophile.
What do you think? Barbie girl or librarian?
