I've recently discovered, and developed a lady crush on, the babes over at GrrlProbs - an awesome blogazine full of witty, gritty, smart and sassy real-life girl talk. I was super thrilled to be interviewed by them for their GRRLCRUSH feature - looks like the feeling is mutual! go check it out HERE! And make yourself comfortable over there, because you just found your new favorite blog ;)

I started up a TUMBLR for inspiration
I've also been using WANTWORTHY, making spring wishlists like nobody's business
and you all probably know that Google Reader is "retiring" as of April 1st, so find me on Bloglovin' and let's party there instead.

i thought i'd share some of my behind-the-scenes and real-life cell phone shots from the past few weeks!
feel free to find/follow me on instagram @heysuzycreamcheese
BEHIND THE SCENES FROM THE SPRINGBREAK HEARTBREAK SHOOT:
HAVE I MENTIONED THAT MY HAIR IS NEON KEY LIME GREEN?
(it's a really hard color to photograph)
(also i'm really stoked on my L.A.M.B. shirt i found at Buffalo Exchange)
(and how great are those Linda Farrow x Agent Provocateur sunglasses?)
BEHIND THE SCENES FROM THE LILY LASHES POLAROID SHOOT:

I have one more special shoot to share with you from this past weekend! Hana Haley wanted to capture this fairytale dream on Polaroid film, which meant we had exactly 10 shots to get it right! Her skill really speaks for itself in these images, considering all the challenges of shooting editorial photos on instant film. For styling I used my dreamiest, floatiest, most fairy-tale inspired pieces, white flowing gowns, pink tu-tu's and tiaras. Styling for Hana is a lot like playing dress-up as a young girl, except now I have the means and budget to find exactly the pieces I want to use! Not to mention I am "dressing up" beautiful models, which just makes it that much more fun. I also got to experiment with two different make-up looks, both featuring really beautiful eyelashes. Frida was our model, and she was such a convincing wood nymph, i really got swept away in the fantasy of it all. Coming back to real life after the perfect lighting and mood of this shoot was actually a little tough.
This will be the last collaboration between Hana and I for a minute - but we have exciting plans in store so don't worry, the magic will continue!

The model, Hannah Duggan, was so perfect to work with and such a trooper - in addition to handling the aggressive attention of onlookers like a pro, she barely blinked an eye when asked to wade into several feet Stowe Lake's murky green man-made waters. And looked like a complete babe the whole time.
I love that Hana always has a story behind her shoots, and i thought this was in particular was really perfect: a young girl spends Spring break at the same lake every year. Last year she met and fell in love with a boy at this lake - this year she returns alone, lovesick, and everything reminds her of him.
