I am so excited to share with you MORE of what Meuse Photo has to offer. Come read up on all the latest adventures I have been on!
To tell you that I was excited for this portrait session will not even begin to cover it. Hey guys I’m Brittney, and I am your photog bestie! I met up with Addy a few months ago and we started planning her senior session. My biggest take away from our meeting was she did not want your “typical” senior session. She came ready with lots of inspo and we got to planning. 4 words, dark academia portrait session. And I am totally here for it. Here was the vibe we were going for during our planning for the first part of her senior photoshoot:
All the art museum, meet me at the underground library, running through London streets, dark academia vibes. Our only problem. We don’t live in London, with cool libraries or art museums. We really don’t have anything like this where we live. After going back and forth on a few possibilities Addy and her mom remembered a friends house that is decorated beautifully but it definitely fit the mark. It had also just gone up on the market. So we bought it. lol. JK. but they did let us take photos before they moved everything out and let me just tell you.. it was stunning, it gave us all the dark academia vibes we could want without actually booking a trip to London. (But don’t tempt me, because I will do it).
The day came and after I got home and immediately uploaded the photos. Jaw on the floor. I loved them so much and for sure fit the dark academia portrait session vibes. Check them out!
Do you love them? I love them. Actually I am obsessed with them and will probably make this my new personality. Just kidding mostly. If you want to check out another session that is a little extra and just as fun and fabulous go check out this blog with Brielle! Soon I will post the second part of Addy’s photoshoot and we will just call that half the dreamy nature portrait session and it is so good.
I spent weeks, maybe months looking and LOVING all of these Taylor Swift Eras Tour outfits. LIKE DYING. At one point my entire TikTok for you page was just the Eras Tour. I would get so excited anytime another Swiftie came across my For You page that was going to the Dallas show the same night I was. I am a big reputation girlie so my outfit was obviously centered around that, midnights vibes, and most importantly being comfy. Here is a look at the fun outfit I wore to the Taylor Swift Eras Tour!!
Not going to lie, I had my outfit done and ready at least a few months before my concert date. I decided to DIY the disco ball had like a week before. So by the time all the mirror pieces came in the mail I had like maybe 2 days to do it. It took me the FULL 2 days to make it. I was sitting at my desk for hours and hours. Worth it in the end because now I have a cool had and it really made my outfit perfect. Just a tip if you decide to make it, I tried putting like 5 rows of the mirror tiles on at a time, I ended up taking all of them off and doing one row at a time. It looks a lot better that way. And of course everything coming together for that night!!!
The Taylor Swift Eras tour was so much fun, absolutely a night to remember. Now the morning after, I looked like a piece of hell spit me out and left me there to die. I still had jewels in my hair, my body exhausted after a night of singing, dancing, standing and jumping. Bright and early we headed to a photoshoot scheduled with a fellow Swiftie. I first saw Jose on Tiktok showing off his STUNNING mirrorball inspired Eras Tour outfit and I immediately knew I wanted to work with him. So I followed up and we made plans to meet up for the shoot! GUYS. His outfit.. actual perfection. Take a look at some of the shots we got!!
Pride month has officially been over for a bit. That always makes me sad. Hi all, it’s Brittney your photog bestie and today I want to share the pride self portraits from a session I did at the beginning of June. If you are following me on Instagram or TikTok you might have seen a few photos from the session but here’s a lot more. June might be over, but you can still support the alphabet mafia community year around. I hate when corporations are just here for some rainbow capitalism. So don’t be like them and go support your favorite LGBTQ+ creators and businesses. Here are a few of my favorite places you can donate money and small businesses you can support.
The Trevor Project: Starting with one of the most well-known LGBTQ+ charities, The Trevor Project focuses on providing crisis intervention and suicide prevention services to LGBTQ+ youth. Through their 24/7 helpline, online chat, and text support, they offer a lifeline to those who may be struggling with their identity or facing discrimination. Your donations can contribute to saving lives and fostering a supportive environment for vulnerable LGBTQ+ individuals.
GLAAD: The Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD) is an organization committed to promoting positive representation and accurate portrayals of LGBTQ+ individuals in media and entertainment. By advocating for fair and inclusive media representation, GLAAD helps combat stereotypes and fosters a more accepting society. Your donations help amplify LGBTQ+ voices and stories, challenging societal norms and encouraging acceptance.
National Center for Transgender Equality (NCTE): As the leading social justice organization devoted to advancing the rights of transgender individuals, NCTE focuses on advocacy, policy change, and education. Through their campaigns, they address issues like transgender rights, healthcare access, and anti-discrimination policies. Donating to NCTE can aid in securing equal rights and opportunities for the transgender community.
Rainbow Certified: I have stickers, enamel pins, and their new rainbow fanny pack and I absolutely love all of them. I love this small business because they are really good and supporting a lot of different sexualities and have something for everyone. Also if they have any stickers that have been discontinued sometimes they will throw them in with your order so then you get fun surprise stickers.
Queerly Nostalgic: I have not had the chance to order from them, but they have some really cute stuff. So you should order and let me know what you get because they have some really fun stickers and all the Fletcher and Taylor Swift things you could want.
Rose Gold Co: I like this small business because they are VERY inclusive and have a lot of different options for every letter in the alphabet mafia. Instead of just focusing on what have been the “main sexualities/genders” they try to cover everyone. So no matter who you are you can find something that is you. I got a cute bucket hat and bi bracelet here and love them.
Be sure to check out my previous blog posts and let me know what you want to see next! Show me your pride self portraits you took this year, post and tag me on IG or TikTok!
