Oh man, I just could not pick a favorite so I put all of them. Well, this is not all of them, I have a million more…it is so hard to trash a shot of a senior so beautiful! Baylee was such a good sport during this photoshoot. She is one of those girls that is naturally beautiful and not even aware of it. She told me she is not used to posing and it did not come naturally…but I think after a few shots..she started to get the hang of it!! Thanks Miss B..I had fun hanging out with you!!

Edgy is a great word for this shoot! My friend, Christine called me the other day and asked if I wanted to meet-up to play and shoot. She had envisioned dressing the girls up in wigs, make-up and some fun costumes. You see Christine is a brilliant photographer/photoshopper with a creative mind that is always spinning. She can think up things my little “vanilla” mind could never think of. I do think I am a pretty good photographer…but I am a “safe” photographer. I know what poses work and I rarely step out of that box. I edit fairly clean and never with flair…but Christine..she adds drama, edginess and flair!! That is what makes her so special!!
Here are a few of my shots from the day. Make-up, hair and styling all done by Christine at Trimood Photography! Thank you for the fun day. The girls had a blast! If I get permission, I will add some of her shot to the post too!
Now please know..my girls do not wear make-up or sleeveless dresses on a regular basis. This was a fun, dress-up shoot that we did…nothing more! 😉
The shot above was taken outside at around 7:00PM using off camera flash and the ones below were taken in the same area…same light, just using natural light!! Crazy difference!!
..and some of Emma!!
An amazing skirt made out of real hydrangeas she picked from her backyard.I told you she was creative!!
Last January, I thought it would be fun to photography different kinds of candy through the year….they have so many fun textures and colors! Endless possibilities in fun, right?!?! Kind of a wacky project, but I really enjoyed it! Here were a few of my favorites from over the year. If you would like to see them all just visit this section on my website HERE!
The CM team headed to New Orleans this past week for Imaging USA 2012. It was so fun to meet up with the girls I have known and worked with for the past several years. When we first arrived, you get an empty booth and a crate full of materials. So we spent the first day setting up!! This is what are booth ended up looking like!! It was BEAUTIFUL!!!!! Then when we the show ended, we took it all down, re-packed it back into the crate and had it marked for shipping to Vegas. It will wait for us patiently to arrive in February to do it all over again for WPPI!!! Such a fun experience!!
Just finished setting up the booth and having some lunch!! From left to right: Me, Lisa, April, Courtney, Sara S, Leah, Sarah W, Sarah P….and then it should have been Kathryn, but she was on the phone.
-Snug Harbor Jazz Bistro-
Enjoying cocktails and dinner at Snug Harbor Jazz Bistro in the French Quarter.SEE!!! I told you we liked taking our pictures in this mirror!! We even had a guy with big feathers who wanted to jump in with us on another night! This was our last night after tearing down the booth. We were heading out for our last dinner at Commander’s Palace in the historic garden district.
However, when we got there, they were no longer serving dinner. I guess they stopped seating people at 8:00. WHAT? I thought we were in New Orleans. So I took a few snaps of the inside and we headed out. They suggested another restaurant named Coquette that was just down the road. It worked out well because we were able to see some of the beautiful houses as we walked. I guess this is the neighborhood Sandra Bullock lives in.Walking over to Coquette.
We were all enjoying our drinks and wonderful food when who do we spy two tables over? We are thinking Will Ferrell. Lisa is positive it is him. So we decided to ask his friend as he was walking out of the bathroom. However, to our surprise..we were so focused on Will F, we didn’t even realize that was Jason Sudeikis. So we were equally excited when we were talking to him and he shook all of our hands! Later as they headed out…Lisa was brave enough to ask Will if we could get a shot of them and he obliged!!
Here we all are as happy as can be posing with Will Ferrell. Jason Sudeikis is not in the picture because he is using MY camera to take the shot!! So cool!! He was in the next shot. Sarah took one for the team and used Lisa’s iPhone to take it!! What a great way to end such a fabulous week!!! I am so very grateful for getting the opportunity to work and hang out with such wonderful women!!
Some other highlights of the trip were having dinner with Erin Cobb and her friend Amy Shertzer at The Gumbo Shop. Erin made us try alligator sausage and it was actually pretty good! It was AWESOME meeting Jerry Ghionis and watching him speak, he even told me I had beautiful eyes….awwwwww. I also enjoyed our time hosting our CM party at The A Gallery, meeting Jaime Schultz, meeting Sandy Puc, chatting with Jason from Millers/MpixPro, meeting Joel from Adorama and spending time with everyone! These are all the images I captured with my camera, but when I get a few more of Lisa’s shots I will post them!
Here are all the iPhone shots!! Most taken by Lisa and a few from Sarah W!
