A Modern Coca-cola Christmas Inspiration

  • Wedding Wednesday

I get a little ahead of myself. I woke up this morning with a list of christmas things to get done and then there was a “business” to-do list as well. One of those “Business” to-do’s was to blog Wedding Wednesday. But I wanted it to be a GOOD one. Well, it takes some work to make a GOOD Wedding Wednesday and you can’t do it halfway. So, what was once supposed to be a simple post, has turned into a entire styled shoot in my kitchen…. complete with a lighting setup and fresh flowers. I know, this is ridiculous. However, I enjoy this stuff.

photographers have asked about two different topics. They ask 1. How do you shoot so many portraits and 2. How do you shoot with an album in mind.

I think I’ve completed almost 8 of them and I’m on a roll! Before we get too far into this post, let me explain my album process. I like to design my albums first, with the images that I think look the best.

Coming Next Fall

  • The P31 Conference

 

may be a part of the wonderful Facebook group for female photographers that is Pursuit 31.   A year ago, this group was just beginning and since its’ launch, it has exploded! Women like having a place to connect and share about their lives, their faith and their businesses.  Karen Stott headed up this group and has become a sweet friend over the course of this year and I’m so excited for her as she branches out and pursues BIG dreams and all that God has for her. When she contacted me about the Pursuit 31 Conference I was incredibly honored and somewhat confused.
