Lately I have been getting asked a lot, "what should we wear for our event?".
In this post, I will let you know!!!
Forget browns and kahki, you can have fun with your clothing! The goal is to have everyone compliment each other but not be too matchy-matchy.
Solids are best but dont be afraid to add a few accents of patterns or stripes. Stay away from logos on t-shirts or anything that might draw attention away from your face.
Layers and texture look great, not only is it a great way to add color and make your look complete. But by adding a scarf or blazer you can change you look later in the shoot by removing a layer.
I also think its a great idea to have one person in the group wear a fun crazy pattern, like an animal print. You can also have that person wear the accent color as their man color to mix things up a bit yet pull it all together.
Pick fun, rich colors that light up your face. Jewel tones look really great!
Decide your accent color and try to apply that to your jewelry, shoes, undershirt, headbands, scarf, tights, etc. It is all in the details and it makes for a really fun look.
Here are some ideas of what to wear for your session that I found online.
i recently had the honor of meeting a very brave, strong, and inspiring woman.
she contacted me to take pictures of her little family.
she has battled ovarian cancer and needs to begin another round of chemo
because of some remaining cancer cells.
she told me she wanted some pictures done before she lost her hair again.
during our session, we began discussing ovarian cancer awareness (check out my up coming event)
and Darcel asked if I would be willing
to document her scars and her journey through this round of chemo.
" ... I want to let people see what I have gone through, to help them understand that cancer is not always a "death sentence". It is what you make it. Yeah it is not a fun or beautiful thing, but it is real. Also scars can be scary, but there is a story behind everyone of them...."
so please check back in the coming weeks for more of Darcel's story in photographs.
here are a few pictures from our session the other day.
family is defined as a group consisting of parents and children living together in a household.
i firmly believe our pets are our children.
"A dog is the only thing on earth that loves you more than he loves himself."
Do not let your fire go out, spark by irreplaceable spark,
in the hopeless swamps of the approximate,
the not-quite, the not-yet, the not-at-all.
Do not let the hero in your soul perish,
in lonely frustration for the life you deserved,
but have never been able to reach.
Check your road and the nature of your battle.
The world you desired can be won. It exists, it is real, it is possible, it is yours.

Most of you know that on June 2nd is my Spring Portrait event and basket party. This event will take place from 2pm-7pm. Prior to the event people can sign up for a 15 minute mini portrait session. These sessions are $10.00. There will also be a basket party and prizes available for guests to try and win by purchasing tickets. A local DJ will be playing music and we are also having food at the event.
I am donating all of the money from this event to the Ovarian Cancer National Alliance. The Ovarian Cancer National Alliance continues to be a voice for ovarian cancer survivors and works to reduce the number of deaths from ovarian cancer by advocating at the federal level for adequate funding for ovarian cancer research and for legislation that improves the quality of life and access to care for cancer patients. According to data, the mortality rates for ovarian cancer have not improved in forty years since the “War on Cancer” was declared. However, other cancers have shown a marked reduction in mortality, due to the availability of early detection tests and improved treatments. Unfortunately, this is not the case with ovarian cancer. Ovarian cancer accounts for approximately three percent of cancers in women. While the ninth most common cancer among women, ovarian cancer is the fifth leading cause of cancer-related death among women, and is the deadliest of gynecologic cancers.
Your contribution will help support all of the Ovarian Cancer National Alliance’s advocacy, education, and awareness programs. At this time we are asking for gift certificates, baskets, or cash donations to make our portrait event and basket party a success.
Please help me bring awareness to Ovarian Cancer and raise money for the Ovarian Cancer National Alliance.
RIP Aunt Molly, always in my heart. I miss you so much .
In January I had intended to start this blog and post all the time. That did not happen. Obviously. It is much easier and faster for me to load my pictures on to facebook. I do not like how they have been looking on facebook lately and now plan on posting to my blog more than anything else. Please take a look at my two most recent shoots and please stop back often as I have a TON of shoots lined up....
Photographer, artist, wife, sister, daughter, aunt, granddaughter, foodie, dreamer... in no particular order.....
