Palm Beach Photographer | 2012 Mini Sessions are here!

For 2012 I have decided to approach the mini session madness differently.  Often I am only able to give a few weeks heads up of when the sessions will be.  Well, not for this year!  I have four weekends picked out with fun theme's, props, and locations from now until the end of the year.  Listed below is the date, cost, and description of each session.  You'll notice my available slots are much higher than it's been in the past, I increased it because I'm sooooooo wayyyyyy in advance.

Spread the word :)

Mini Photography Sessions

Palm Beach Photographer | Promotional Pictures of yours truly ....

Gahhhh!!!  So cliche, but I HATE having my picture taken.  I can pose you, no matter what body type or features you're rockin' but I can NOT pose myself.  /sigh.  Okay, now that I had my tantrum.

Along with the new branding I am also getting all new material printed and I've included a section about me.  First, I'm horrible at writing about myself.  Second, I'm horrible at getting my picture taken.  So I asked my darling friend Eric to photograph me today.  Eric taught me a lot about photography and now he's a *retired* photographer so I was stoked when he agreed to do this for me.  I wanted to kill two birds with one stone so I figured I would bring my mini man along and get some pictures of us together.  I've never had professional pictures taken of us together.  HYPOCRIT!  Yes, I know.  I guess I'm so critical of myself because I do this professionally.

Anyway, we battled with drive-bys, wind, wanting to do sun flares, and the heat.  Oh and we fed a stray kitten.  But I'm happy with the outcome.  But just for the record, if you ever go to Forest City.... don't dress like me.  You'll get weird looks.


PS- If you've followed me on Facebook you know I am now offering a discount to tattooed/modified brides.  I am tattooed, so I can get away with profiling!  And I think women who are tattooed are beautiful.  The weddings of modified couples are always a TON of fun, which adds to my reason to wanting to build my portfolio with expressive and unique individuals.  Email me about the details if you're interested.

PPS- I'm setting up a day for a mini pin-up marathon.  I use the term pin-up loosely.  I'm not setting up the typical sets.  It's going to be hot rods, hot chics (inked preferably), and hot outfits.  This will not be a boudoir/pin up type session.  I'm working on finding a make up artist who can do pin-up styles.  Email me for details and to put your name on the list.  Slots are on a first come first serve basis.

So on to the photos! (Hair & Make up by Katie Cotton, Photography by Eric Mack, Lighting by Eric + Gavin, Editing by Me.)


And heres some of my crew! LOL

My FAILED attempt at a sun flare!


Palm Beach Photographer | New Material

A few days ago I got this crazy idea that I should rebrand.  I say crazy because I literally JUST rebranded back in November.  I liked it at first, but I didn't feel like it went well with my personality or my style of shooting.  As I previously blogged about, I am relocating to Palm Beach next month and I felt that this would be a perfect time to change the look of everything.  I figured, I have to reorder everything to update the address and phone number so why not do it all!

I designed my logo and after enlisting in the help of a few good friends, we went with the color scheme and logo version you're seeing now!  Green and purple, dots and lines, and some sort of splotchy thing.  I feel like its fun, fresh, clean, modern, and definitely more my style!

Because I'm on a short time frame, with the move approaching in 19 days, I purchased a marketing kit from Go4ProPhotos that included all the templates you see below.  I spent the entire day plugging in my information, new colors & logo, and creating a kit for weddings and one for portraits.  Although it's a lot of polka dots, I really like it!  I can't wait to get it all printed and put together hard copies of my welcome kits.... and I can't wait to hear what everyone else  thinks of it.  So let 'er rip!  I want to know the good, bad, and the ugly!
