Inspiration: Portraits

Hello my dears! For this week's inspiration I wanted to showcase some of my favorite portraits that I've come across. I would absolutely love to have my portrait taken by a studio that specializes in this type of photography, or better yet, try to learn myself! I found everything from glamorous, celebrity headshots to beautiful yearbook portraits. I'm also going to admit that about 1/3 of them are of Ginger Rogers because MAN was she stunning! Looking through these is also giving me the itch to cut my hair once again. I just adore the hairstyles, and especially makeup, that these women are wearing. Which is your favorite?

And my favorite:

God Bless!

Ecclesiastes 11:1
Send your grain across the seas, and in time, profits will flow back to you.

Um, yes! I love photos like this and I'm so glad that you wrote this post. The high-contrast style is so beautiful and I love how done-up and doll-like these ladies look. Totally unrealistic in terms of actually running about on a daily basis looking like this, but man, is it fun to just totally alter your appearance with makeup sometimes or WHAT? If you ever find a place that does something like this, lemme know. Better yet, when I finally decide to move to North Dakota we can get together and take our own pics. ;) DEAL?
