m already busy guys I'm already busy but you don't have to get it from us you know you can get it from anywhere this we don't sell this is just me going to the fabric store but this is what I do when I go to the fabric store I go like that if it's going to do that for me wouldn't do that for somebody else so go to the fabric store in play people always like what are you doing now and what he's doing now the fabrics throw people love me because I go in there and I bring them pictures and they're like what are we doing now so this is where an assistant kind of comes in handy he kind of looks stiff by great arms up let's see if you like you're standing in your in order you kind of leg ban thine I'm obsessed with the leg which arms down so we don't know what's gonna happen because I'm not a fabric predictor um I know you think I am so let's put the fan on they're beautiful and nice round valley tip you're gonna lift and drop and you can't really we don't have a lot of space in here but I have twelve paper in my studio when I love about twelve foot is I can really go crazy with the length of uh so don't feel like there's a limit to the late okay so I'm gonna just do a test to see how it likes all right now lift and drop it oh that's pretty to know that's pretty too I like it pretty I like that cc should more to your right shoulder and down down in here you know I like straight down go straight down looking at your belly I'm sorry cc go like this her hair her hair like this you're just gonna have to get your chin up for the hair I actually probably a few in my studio put a headband on you so I could see her face and let her hair blow you know I love him so since I don't have that let's just work with you looking up and do that again but I like standing one but if I kind of lost it a little bit so go a little put one hire one hand higher lower switch hands twist a little bit to me but look to the audience and sheena there it is what I like tiffany we just had a little bit out soft smile a big smile she not give me a laugh up up up more more more like you see a bug in the ceiling beautiful and let it fly one more time tiffany so try and bring in a little bit more on this side like pull her a little bit more you know it's so long on the other side yes yes there we go and let's concentrate on that side but you could also go like yeah now one more because now I'm gonna do just this shot I'm gonna do just this your chin is up shoulders are back and I'm this is the shot way pull it a little higher on the other side yeah now let it go left that you fall good look right at me put the fan or lower to her material so she can look at me even a little more lower now see how we're aiming it and it's blowing down there so the fans going way down there now her hair congee so bring your head where that back this macy this way yeah let this beautiful beautiful and then just look down one more time even more little smile lift up one more time like I missed it sorry I wasn't ready for more time I missed it again I'm sorry wear it isthe way good you have to experiment by silks lifespans by light color like very light airy materials and play quite a few people this filly and yea belly I wanted you to show how to rap with just fabric and then stephanie patents who is from lake jackson texas said can you please ask anna to demonstrate how to use the shawls from her shop as a skirt it'll sit great with this segment thank you so much oh my equipment odell wait clips we never found any my eclipse yeah okay so remember we were talking about baby wraps there's a couple different ways you can do things oh yes people love when I do this I forgot about that and since you're right you've abroad under there you want it it's just case you're asking I just gave it to see how you give me just give them the look and they start undressing that's how you do it folks somebody wearing a bra yeah no I know that seems so sure of that ha ha let's give her a color we'll do a couple different things feeling a little make it we'll be okay okay not much less than what way let's see what we have I do it different every time goodness so this is a show off ramp I have no clip I have no that's okay I'm gonna fake it see what I'm doing you see this it's very simple like about guys simple you like it okay do this with you well so actually also to give me one of those other shells that we used for baby that we put around the waist okay this if this is just a shawl or material or whatever you want a new it's literally if I was just doing it on the round the waist it's it's this simple people it's that simple but then what we could also dio you know the little ones and I used with stephanie a little little little little little ones the great ones that gray ones oh this this is one of my favorite and love to use this for a baby wrap and a little sexy mama I'm not even gonna make you take off your shorts hey I'm preparing you for labour when you're in the hospital giving birth and they're like you're half naked they're going to come back I already spent time with anna fine let's imagine she has no short son bend cross it bend your legs a little bit like no I'm sorry cross but it was really cute so so see santa so see how is not fun cute you see that I'm not taking pictures so if you could see maybe john can move that fan so so simple I'll do one more for you can you weigh lost john doesn't say that when the whole body on to you often do it like around like this on you clip it right here yeah took the clip correct behind underneath don't you yes but I don't have a clip but tiffany's right yeah so if if I used you and she's sideways I would just take this and these little home depot clips that I'm telling you that bay they usually green no oh well they would but I don't well maybe it's not what I want to show them my home depot clicks bring it tomorrow I love them I'll bring them tomorrow and it would just be literally that's simple and then you and you just clip it see and it's I like clean lines I like clean lines so that's what that is then you have another one john can we move this fan then let's say we take material yes we could also say let's say we're taking the same I'll show you to more things thiss I do with cheesecloth do I have cheese cloth here uh these two so this is cheesecloth that we wrap a baby with a really big one it's a big one I've had this one forever I just forever washed up five hundred times I'm gonna tuck it in her bra but I would normally tuck it with a clip and you feel being a human mannequin smile her yeah and I would I'm from here no because then if you give me that shawl back tiff so if I wanted to keep going I could go with a longer piece of cheesecloth so this legs bent she her eyes are like wide open she's like I got it I love it so let's say I had a longer piece of cheesecloth I would wrap it tio here right you know I could I could then just take this and do this but let's imagine they have a longer piece of cheesecloth you know it would be you could literally make you could make a whole dress so some of the key things with the wrapping yours I'm just trying to make sure that their separation with the boobs in the belly so a lot of the times I'm just overlapping so don't necessarily just wanted to you could do that but I don't think it's flattering so I'll try to find a way to to crisscross see how fun that isthe and sometimes it's just literally going like this and pulling materials down over and playing you know I'm in there I'm like hi what's going on what we haven't for dinner you know so there's some there's a million ways to sunday one easy easy easy thing that I do with jeans that I love is with jeans I would just take this and say you don't really need to wear that broad do you you don't take it off I would say it was like this is like mama wrapping one o one that could have been a whole segment and think of that see how easy that is so that's super easy or you could cover it here you know or you could do this and cover the arms and go thiss this's all with a stretcher just tie it and how pretty is that even its cozy even in black like black and then you throw a black wrap on it or shorts or genes and it looks you look amazing good can I ask a quick question from andrea ferrera and materials and props both how often do you wash them like every day I ask my husband everyday laundry every day oh yeah every day what big bags when I go home it's me in my laundry fact that I asked my contractor can we put a washer and dryer mice teo oh and you need a water pump in unit pablo and in a water pump you need this no I just want a washer and dryer let's only want I don't want a water pump so I'm trying to find out a better way to do it but I washed laundry today and I have three kids so I start laundry on sunday and I finished the next sunday

I cant believe I got this on sale! So happy with this purchase. The one thing I feel I would have changed is I feel she rushed through the newborn sessions really quickly and spent ALOT of time on maternity. I would have liked to see a lot more of the newborn posing and info versus a dozen maternity. But all in all its full of a lot of great info and I love that its not voice is true time so I can see how she is interacting with the clients. Thankyou Anna I love love love your work always!!
