Style Guide for Spring Minis

When people ask me what to wear to a photo session I always say, "be comfortable and be yourself!" That advice still stands, but if you're looking for a few ideas on how to coordinate your family's look in this particular setting, I've included a couple ideas here for you. 

The mini sessions will be held at a private residence that features a BIG red barn! The barn actually used to be used for dairy cows. It's huge! Now it's owned by an artist and family friend of mine who is generously offering his space for the session. 

There will be a few handmade props made locally by a friend of mine who has done a ton of styling and photography work with me in the past. She's busy making paper flower garlands and knitted flags to hang from the barn and peach trees. Be sure to check out her instagram to see her work, she's an extraordinary crafter!

So if you're wanting to coordinate, choose a color palette and dress your crew around it. This will allow family members to express who they are within a color theme that works together.

Here are a few outfit boards that I put together for inspiration!

These are meant to inspire you if you're looking to coordinate but it is most definitely not required, so don't stress about it! I'm going to capture your happy family, so wear whatever you'd like!

If you haven't signed up yet but would like to come out for some photos, there are only a few spots left. Contact me here to check for availability. 

Happy Spring!

Wrap it up! VIDEO for MY Z WRAPS

In 2017, in her home kitchen, Michelle Zimora took one of her favorite printed fabrics and coated it in a blend of beeswax, jojoba oil and tree resin.  After continual testing, she got the recipe just right.  The result was a reusable, washable Z Wrap, where pretty meets practical, for your lunchbox, leftovers, hostess gifts and more.

Michelle reached out to me looking for video services for her new business venture. Things seemed to be taking off pretty quickly for her and she wanted to have enough content to keep up with the momentum. We met and discussed a number of ideas, ultimately settling on a short series showing food items magically being wrapped in zwraps without hands.

I thought this was a great way to show off how easy these are to use and also how cool the prints are! The videos are short and sweet, perfect for the wide array of social channels Michelle uses.
