So wow, it’s Wednesday again?? Somehow today just creeped up on me but it’s to be expected because the last few weeks have been NUTS here! The short version – I mentioned in my last newsletter that we “may” put our house on the market. Well “may” turned into listing and listing turned into SOLD in two (very short) weeks. We are building our new home which will be completed in late November so this means we get to find a short term rental house for the next 5-6 months. Between meetings with the architect/bank/realtor/etc. and having to leave the house for showing I have managed to fall just a little behind here. And now you add to it rental house shopping, packing, more meetings with architect/bank/realtor/etc. in addition to managing a very busy summer shooting schedule and frankly I am one tired photographer! I am going to do my best to make all of these changes as seamless as possible for clients, there will be some downtime as we get my office functioning in a new place but my sincere wish is to keep going at a normal pace. We’ll see!
Oh and I just have to mention that I spent yesterday at Victory Junction Gang Camp again with my Flashes of Hope peeps and had the absolute best time possible. I just can’t ever put into words how amazing this camp is, you must click the link and check it out if you haven’t already:
I photographed 30 (!!!) kids in front of a race car while a pit crew (of 10 year olds) did their thing behind me. You couldn’t hear a thing I was saying (and I have no voice today!) but that didn’t matter one bit, these beautiful kids make my job easy. I will share photos when I get them ready to go!
But back to the topic at hand – CLOTHES! Because this week has been bananas I have borrowed today’s looks from a great friend and photographer Lisa Dillon. And frankly I will probably borrow from her again next week for senior guys, she does a fabulous job teen shopping! And I should note that these looks are a collaboration between a group of professional photographers to assist our clients. We have contacted stores before using their photos. If you are a photographer and would like to use the photos on your blog please contact us first. Thank you!
Senior sessions are all about fashion, looking good and channeling your inner Top Model. Play up accessories and accent pieces. Bring different shoes, earrings, necklaces, sunglasses, etc. for every look. Those details make a huge difference in your portraits. Make sure pieces fit well (not too tight because they may create bulges you don’t want!) and not to short/low cut. Pour over fashion mags in the weeks before your session and have the outfits pressed and on hangers before we start shooting.
