New hair and (semi) new photo shoots

Hello strangers,
Or maybe I'm the stranger.  I feel like a stranger to myself.

See, I went from this,

It is strange. Yes, that has been the word I have been using post haircut. Strange and pleasant. It is strange to hold my hair in my hand. It is pleasant to wash less than half of what I used to. It is strange to look at myself in the mirror and see someone else, and yet, it is pleasant to look at someone different, and yet the same.

You loose something and you gain something. I feel I lost a little of my identity. My hair was my wildness, my surfer girl, it was my windy partner.

But my short hair, it's something completely different. It's cute, it's poised. And it's something new. And I think I love it.

If you don't know, my partner in crime, was really the one who got me involved in this strangely pleasant business.

Now before I scurry off this post, I thought I would put that photo shoot pre-haircut. And really I think my haircut is lovely, as is my friend's.

Which is your favorite? And, dare I ask, short or long hair?
Have a lovely, dreamy day.
Post Script: Don't you love the new look. It's all her genius-ness. I'm serious, Haley is inspiring. Her pictures, her writing. She's awesome. Thank you.


  1. I love the second one of you and Kalei lying on the ground, and the first one that Kalei took of you! You have such beautiful brown eyes. :)

    Looking at people, I don't think it matters whether their hair is long or short - each person has their own style and it's fun to witness that style change. I personally prefer mine long; my friends like to joke that my hair is the only thing weighting my head down, and if not for it, I would be even more lost in the clouds. ;D

  2. I am so glad that we actually got to cut our hair together! I think we look pretty awesome now. ;) Haha.

    Those pictures of the photoshoot are stunning! You and Kalei are (of course) beautiful. Wonderful angles and poses, too.

    your partner in crime.

  3. I absolutely love that very last one. Gorgeous!
    I like your long hair, but the short hair is quite an adorable change, I must say :)

  4. Short hair is you! Bouncy, sassy and cute!.....though I must say, if you say hi to me in Costco and I don't recognize you...please forgive used to the long hair.....

  5. What adorable pictures, I love all of them :) The lighting is amazing!
    Your new hair looks so gorgeous!

  6. Wow, I can totally see you in your 'grown up' years. I think the cut makes you look less like a kid and more like a woman. I bet your dad is crying big crocodile tears. :..(
    So it's me and Kalei I guess, the longest hair'ed in the bunch

  7. I think you look great! Love the new design, by the way! :)

  8. i love the new hair, it looks gorgeous

  9. Lovely post! Personally, I like both, but I just LOVE short hair for a change... I mean, when it's done right, you can't go wrong.

  10. Beautiful lyrics, Christmas is endearing,
    Very beautiful pictures,
    These days I wish peace and happiness come to your house.
    Happy Holidays!.
    a hug.

  11. Hi there,
    I want to do something like that! I am growing my hair our right now and when it gets really long I want to cut it really short. :D Just to be dramatic.
    I love the way both the long hair and short hair looks good on you.

    Love n smiles,

  12. Ah... I've screwed everything up again.

    I was quite surprised that you did cut your hair, though it did look rather lovely.

    No more hair lei for you, eh?

    It was really great seeing you yesterday!


  13. good grief. kalei is a blimey model.
    I won't even get started on you.
    also. I hope you still own that jazzy grey tank.
