  • Tyknos93 November 23rd, 2012 7:32 PM

    I was trying to figure out how they got the images to look that way because I see this trick on alot of older photos, but it’s painted!? With watercolors? I wanna try.

  • hannahna November 24th, 2012 4:52 PM

  • DreamBoat November 24th, 2012 8:37 PM

  • chloegrey November 25th, 2012 2:52 PM

    and yes DreamBoat I was thinking ‘why does this remind me of Hugo is it just because I have French music playing’ and then I saw that comment and I was like ‘it’s Melies ALL THE WAY’ though I don’t know how to make those fancy accent marks on the computer!

  • Shae November 25th, 2012 6:37 PM

    Awwww you all truly made me smile, I am so glad some readers enjoyed my painted images! I was really excited Rookie included them on their website.

    Thanks for all the lovely comments.


  • barbroxursox November 25th, 2012 9:59 PM

    I love this! These are so dreamy and perfect! Do the beach photos remind anyone else of Moonrise Kingdom?

  • zhajean November 26th, 2012 5:42 AM

    the photos are so great! the theme and the vintage-quality of the photos! i really love :)


  • Gorda November 26th, 2012 8:51 AM

    Love the use of such a classic technique

  • Yayo November 26th, 2012 2:43 PM

    Gosh these are so pretty! You should definitely feature a how-to of some kind.

    Also – the clothes from The Loved One are so gorgeous it’s actually unreal.

  • Jenn November 27th, 2012 6:56 PM

    Beautiful photos, stunning model! My only complaint is that there’s not even more eye candy (‘:

  • Elara December 10th, 2012 6:07 PM

    This is pretty cool!!

  • Cutesycreator aka Monica February 3rd, 2013 1:13 PM

    I can’t describe in words how much I love this/how perfect/wonderful/amazing/PERFECT this is. I looked at Shae Acopian Detar’s website and, surprise surprise, every picture there is perfect, too! As are the gorgeous clothes from The Loved One.

    PS – Did I mention PERFECT??? ♥_♥
