i went home to houston....

and had myself a lil fashion shoot!

i actually went home over spring break to shoot my portrait project and what is becoming my thesis. i was working on a video documentary on new orleans debutantes but lo and behold, one william eggleston show at the whitney and i've realized that i want to photograph the south. i've actually know that i've wanted to do that for a while but it took seeing his (eggleston's) photographs to realize that is what i want to do. i am still working on my documentary but i dont really want my senior show to be that. i'll finish that for another class next semester i reckon.

long time no see

school has been quite intense! hence the lack of updates until now. in fact, i had just put this on the backburner. but now, im back!

so why has school been intense?
well, i've been working on my thesis. but caroline, you say, you're a junior! right you are, but there is no time like the present to start my senior thesis. and i kind of switched topics. i was working on a film documentary of new orleans's debutantes but now i am working on photographic images of the south and my family. i'll post my images soon.

im also in a rather intense but utterly fascinating class on children's cinema and my portrait class, which i can't rave about enough, is eating my time. but b/c i give these things my time, they grow into time eating monsters and just get rather large. but i like putting work into these things.

i also got an internship at Maxim. yes, the magazine with the near nude ladies in it. i rather enjoy it for these reasons a) i'm not a fan of the magazine so my hopes aren't dashed when it's not what i expected it to be, B) b/c i had no expectations, it ended up surpassing said expectations and C) i'm given actually photo work to do. find these images via stock agencies is way better than hey intern (note the no name) update this blog. or just sit there.
its fun and i work for the photo dept and its full of rather cool ladies.

so this is a picture of me and some classmates

the cute asian girl is esther. who dresses very well. and the other lovely lady named marissa. she is doing this awesome project on old women in new jersey. quite cool.
this was a flash exercise. so we took a vivatar flash and bounced it off the ceiling and then the whiteboard. i think this is bounced off the ceiling.
what i'm wearing
a delias sweater
a marc by marc jacobs shirt
a marni skirt
3.1 phillip lim belt
american apparel tights
jeremy campbell shoes (oxford style)

more to come soon! we just had spring break and i held some fashion shoots.
oh yeah.
