Wednesday's Shoot - Allie
It's hard to believe that the last time Allie and I shot prior to yesterday was back in May. It was when we shot the white Converse low tops and nature trail sets (see blog: "Thursday's Shoot - Allie"). That certainly didn't feel like it was six months ago. Both Allie and I just assumed we shot that in late July or early August. Nope!
Needless to say, Allie was overdue and thankfully she had some time available to shoot a couple new sets - one of which has been a year in the making. More on that when we get to set two.

Set 1: Sonic Socks
The first set of the evening saw Allie wearing a pair of Sonic the Hedgehog socks. These socks feature Sonic's spiky hair coming off the back and Allie fell in love with them the moment she saw them. I told her she could use them in a set and we could throw in some video game items to tie it all in.
Luckily for us, Allie's boyfriend has a large handheld gaming collection with lots of games and several different systems. One of those systems just so happened to be a blue Nintendo DS, so we decided to use that one obviously. He also has a handful of Sonic games for the DS, so that worked out perfectly. Add in a Sonic the Hedgehog Amiibo to stick between her toes and Allie had herself a cute little nerdy gamer girl set theme.
We kept things super simple with this set. Allie started off playing some Sonic on the DS wearing the socks. By the end, she was barefoot and playing with the socks just as much as the DS. I'm sure none of you were complaining.
Once we were done, it was time to get ready for a set that was a year in the making and one we'd have some clean up work to do once we finished.

Set 2: Pumpkin Pie
This set, a pumpkin pie smash, was originally planned for Thanksgiving 2020 and feature Kaycee and Juliet alongside Allie. Weather ended up causing us to miss last year's Thanksgiving deadline, but the idea has always stayed on the back burner. Well here in 2021, Allie still wanted to do it. It was her idea after all. And even though Kaycee and Juliet were both unavailable to shoot this set, it wasn't going to stop Allie. She wanted her size 5's in some pumpkin pie and she wasn't waiting another year to do it.
I think it's safe to say that Allie had a ton of fun shooting this set. It was her first messy food set - something she's been wanting to do for years. The closest thing to a messy set she's done was last year's slime themed Ghostbusters set. That slime, however, turned out to be more sticky than gooey/messy, so this was something she longed to do.
If you're a fan of messy food sets you won't have long to wait for this one - two weeks to be exact. I'm sure some of you might be checking this set out for the first time while eating some pumpkin pie of your own. Just don't let your family members see what you're looking at on your phone if you're at grandma's house!
It was certainly nice getting Allie back in front of the camera. We have a few more ideas we've been wanting to shoot and hopefully we can find time to do them soon. It's always great catching up with Allie and getting in new photos with her for the site.
