HMM Photo Shoot Spring 2015

Running Hip Mountain Mama is no small task.  Ordering product, photographing product, uploading product, writing descriptions, answering emails, shipping out orders, updating the website, keeping up with social media, etc. People ask me if I have employees and the answer is no...I do just about everything myself.  However, I do have some amazing friends who are always willing to help when needed.  My favorite thing to call on my friends for is to model new product for me.  We have way too much fun!  Not only am I getting some creative work done, but I am also hanging out with the best friends a girl could ask for.  This week we got some outfits together and headed to our little down town for a photo shoot.  Below are some fun photos I captured...of course after the shoot we went out to our favorite local bar to celebrate (and it just happened to be Emily's Birthday!).  Look around the shop to see more photos of these lovely ladies showcasing HMM's new Spring items!

New 'Real' Models!

Hip Mountain Mama is a small business who relies on the help of friends and local resources.  This Spring I called on some of my friends to help showcase my clothing.  I understand how hard it can be ordering on line...I do it I try my hardest to photograph my items on different models and in different ways. Some times this means sending items to folks all around the country and depending on them to take some groovy photos for me.  The past few weeks I have had tremendous help from a great group of ladies!  All shapes, sizes, and ages can be seen here so you can get an idea of what the items look like on 'real' people. Be sure to browse my website for more photos of some awesome new products!

Snowboarding: Live in the Moment

Have you ever been engaged in an activity and all of a sudden you realize you are completely living in the moment?  You kind of step out of that moment for a few seconds and think 'wow, this is what it means to truly live in the now'.  As I get older I am having more and more realizations of what activities really feed my soul.  Snowboarding is at the very top of this list!

When you are bombing down the mountain on a snowboard, you aren't thinking about what you are going to make for dinner, or how you made a fool of yourself the night before.  You are 100% fully engaged in that very moment!  It's spiritual, it's magical, it's living!  You are bending your knees, making your turns, and smiling the whole time because it is so much fun.  It's just you, your board, and Mother Nature...and that is pure bliss!

Tie Dye Bolt Dress

Inspired by a freeway sign, Owsley Stanley and artist Bob Thomas created the lightening bolt as a symbol to put on the Grateful Dead's equipment so they could identify it easier. Later the Skull was added and is now an easily recognizable symbol of one of our favorite bands. Show your love of the Grateful Dead with the new far out Tie Dye Bolt Dress!

I Have Holes in My Jeans

I have holes in my jeans.  Some of them I put patches over, and some of them I don't.  Some people along the way have told me, I need new jeans.  So, that made me think, maybe I do need new jeans.  Then I thought, I like these jeans...they are comfortable, they have been with me for about 10 years, and I have grown quite fond of the holes.  So I keep wearing them...and every so often someone will tell me I need new jeans.  To this I politely respond with, "thank you for your concern, however I have a perfectly good pair of jeans right here".  Peace.
