Parc des Bastions Photoshoot

Photographer: Studio du Petit Oiseau

edit_DSC3158web

Studio du Petit Oiseau is an amazing photographer! I had the honor to work with him during my time studying abroad in Switzerland. Working with him was a great experience in many ways. The most important thing I gained was self-confidence. I gained self-confidence in different areas: posing/modeling and speaking. I did not think I was fluent in French, but I gained more confidence in my French speaking skills over the course of the semester.

Studio du Petit Oiseau and the other photographers I worked with all spoke French, so all of my photoshoots were, in fact, francophone. I was shocked when one of them asked if I was French; they knew I was a student studying in Switzerland for the first time but didn’t realize I was American. Studio du Petit Oiseau knew I was American but complimented my French and also gave me valuable advice. He was patient when I asked questions, kept an open mind, and was a pleasure to work with!  edit_DSC3180web

The purpose of this particular photoshoot was to get good photos for the hair accessories that were sponsored. Read my Captain Miaow product review for more info about that!

This photoshoot was my first time working with Studio du Petit Oiseau and my first time modeling abroad! I requested this location: Parc des Bastions. The academic building with most of my classes was literally in this park.

I’ve done homework while sitting on this bench before:

Some of these photos are edited, but some are un-edited, by the way! You might be able to tell the difference. Even the unedited photos look amazing though!

Captain Miaow: Hair Accessories

DSCN9608

You may recognize the name “Captain Miaow.” You’re not imagining it! Previously, I did a review of this Etsy shop’s animal ears, tails, and paws. Captain Miaow not only makes adorable animal accessories… They also make elegant hair accessories and jewelry items. They sent me a hair accessory set to review, and I am pleased to say that I am impressed by the product.

The package I received was a USPS padded mailer. The product was declared as “Handmade” and I had no problems with customs.

Inside the mailer, I discovered a neat little cardboard box. This box ensured safe shipment of the hair accessories, and when I opened the box, I was pleasantly surprised by cute gift-wrap! The items were wrapped in tissue paper and the presentation included an adorable ribbon.

The packaging could not compare the accessories themselves though… Take a look:

The accessories look identical. Each one has two fan-shaped decor pieces connected by two braided strings. The strings are embellished with dangling faux pearls, and the fan-shaped pieces are also embellished with pearls and gems (and of course, lace!). The backs of the fan-shaped pieces have alligator clips.

Check out the close-up details here:

Aren’t they beautiful?

This accessory was easy to clip into my hair. Due to the alligator clips’ teeth, the accessory did not slip down from where I positioned it. I highly recommend these hair accessories!

I wore one from the set of two for a photoshoot (mon premier shooting à Genève!) in a local park, Parc des Bastions. The photographer was Studio du petit oiseau, and it was a lovely experience.

I love how the photographer captured this photo! The accessory truly stands out against my hair.

And of course, I should share my full coordinate:
