Coffee Monday | 2015 Beauty Revived Seniors

Happy Monday! And what a Monday it has been! Seriously. Can you tell I’m getting this out a little late? Hey, it’s still Monday, so that counts for something. But I’ve got to tell you, if you’re still drinking coffee this late in the day — put the cup down, peeps. Put. The cup. Down.

So today’s Coffee Monday is super exciting! I’m announcing my 2015 Beauty Revived Seniors! Weeee! And, yes, that was seniors. Plural. With an “s.” I narrowed it down as far as I possibly could. And then I farmed out the nominations to other photographers to make them choose! It was SOOOO hard picking just one girl. And, in the end, I didn’t. I picked two! Why? Because they’re both brilliant, amazing girls that work incredibly hard and deserve the world. And I couldn’t help myself.

So here goes. My 2015 Beauty Revived Seniors! Give ’em some love.

Coffee Monday | Styled Shoots and Inspiration

Happy Monday, Peeps! In this episode of Coffee Monday, I talk about a few of the styled shoots I’m planning for the next few months. I LOVE styled shoots. If you’ve ever flipped through the pages of a fashion magazine, you’ve seen one. And if you’re unsure of what they are, they’re basically photoshoots that are styled around a particular theme. The makeup, the hair, the clothing, the accesories, the props — everything is put together in such a way as to support the theme. And the theme can pretty much be anything you dream up. That’s what makes them SO fun!

If you would like to do something a little different for your portraits, I highly recommend brainstorming with me and creating a styled shoot! We would dream up the perfect theme — one that represents you and something that you love. And then I would pour my heart into finding just the right location, just the right props, just the right mood to make that crazy idea a reality. Want an enchanted forest theme? We can totally do that. Even in the desert. Want a beach theme? Oh yes, we can make that happen right here in Vegas.

So here’s a little snip of me talking about the themes for some styled shoots I have coming up over the next few months. I can’t wait to share the final products with you! And I add a little inspiration for your week ahead (I couldn’t help myself!). (My apologies for the UFO hovering in the background. Clearly, there was one, because that’s the only thing that could explain the crazy noise in the video. I’ll get this video thing under control one of these days!…)

It’s Coffee Monday!

Mondays have a bad rap. If you’re like me, you kind of dread them because getting up super early is, shall we say, less than appealing. So I’m bringing something fun to Mondays to help you kick off the school or work week on a good note — I do hope you’ll stop by and join me for coffee on Mondays!

I’m introducing a video series called Coffee Monday. Every Monday, I’ll be posting a quick video to say hello and get the week started. We’ll chat about all sorts of things photography related, and I’ll be giving you a peak into my life (as a photographer and simply as a person that lives in Vegas — and loves it).

While I’m at it, allow me to roll out the other weekly series you’ll see on the blog — Sneak Peak Friday! Ooh, yes, this is the good stuff. This is where you’ll get a peak at my latest portrait sessions and photography projects. If you come visit me on Fridays, I promise to deliver some beautiful imagery with which to end your week.

So what do you say? Let’s get started. Press play on the first installment of Coffee Monday. And, yep, I am sure the more I do this, the easier it’s going to get, right? I mean, at some point I’ve got to get good at the whole talking on video thing!
