I love doing these kind of fantasy shoots... and Ive heard that others enjoy seeing them... so I thought I would offer these to the public. I have tons of dresses/costumes on hand, if you are interested. These are totally fun shoots and they dont have to be as extreme as getting into the water. But I think most women have some kind of fantasy, so here is your chance to fulfill it.
I especially want to pitch these to moms of pre-teen and teenage daughters out there. You remember that phase of not feeling pretty, feeling awkward and just out of place. Here is a chance to give a gift of acceptance to your daughter (or sister, neice, granddaughter). Help her to realize that its her thats beautiful - everything about her is what makes her unique - lets celebrate it! It really is a fun experience, especially for someone who doesnt feel all that confident in themselves. The total package will come with the fun of playing dress up and finding the perfect dress, I can also do their make up as well (sorry, Im not good with hair though!), then we will discuss what she wants, find the perfect location, and then just go out and have some fun. Ive done this with several girls and they all come out on the other side and say they had so much fun and they really did feel beautiful. I want all girls to feel beautiful - no matter what their size, shape, or "imperfections" are. They deserve to be celebrated - Id love to be a part of making that happen... :) (I think its always good for a girl/woman to have a few beautiful pictures of herself to pull out on those "bad" days to remember what she really does look like!)
Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and lets figure out how to create something beautiful. I look forward to hearing from you.

This art piece is absolutely amazing… Im in awe
Cant remember if Ive already featured this geode street art project, but its just so cool
Thoughts on these mermaid pics? Anyone feel like a photoshoot?
Visit Mars… in New York! I want to go!
Custom Wedding gowns = G.O.R.G.E.O.U.S.
Giving Tree Wedding Invitations… oh my goodness, are these beautiful!
Absolutely in love with this idea (and first picture) of turning bookcases into art
I am one of those people, even if I have 20 bags of groceries, my phone, keys and a bottle of water… dang it, Im going to get it all in one trip… I think this could help with that
LOVE this “day after” wedding shoot… anyone up for one?
Ok, you know I love colored wedding dresses, but I know they arent for everyone, but how about a colored pettiskirt underneath instead for a little color… here’s one in red and one in green… CUTE!!!
Or just do the bottom half of your dress in color (reminds me of Gwen Stefani’s wedding dress!)
I love so many details from this styled shoot… and oh the cakes!
LOVING these bridesmaids dresses… super wearable after the wedding… urban outfitters usually carries tons of styles like this
The new Douglas Hannant Spring 2013 collection is so over the top!
One of my most favorite wedding bouquets Ive ever seen
ok, this one too
How cute is this Hello Kitty airplane!!!
Its not colored, but Im so, so in love with the new Reem Acra Spring 2013 bridal collection
Ok, so tell me - what are you loving this week?

And the Lawrence family is no exception to the rule (although we just did the kids this time instead of the whole family)... wow - these kids... if I could only put into words how wonderful, polite and amazing these two were... wow! (and when kids are this good, it leads to alot of pictures, so I hope yall are ready!)Not a typical kids picture, but I love, love, love it... definitely one of my favorites.Love these swing pictures... :)And these two are total athletes... so young and already so amazing... made me super nostalgic for my high school days (and high school body that didnt feel so old as well)Love this light... :)Found this little guy hanging out... we let him loose and then he found us again... :)Nathan totally rocks!These next two could be total art pieces... beautiful.And how cool is their mom, Linn?!!! Doesnt she look like Trinity from the Matrix... yeah, she is that cool!Thank you Lawrence family for letting me be the one to capture these memories - I had so much fun... especially with all the creepy crawly things - like a cool field trip, and I even had my camera along. I cant wait to watch your kids grow up and do amazing things and then say I knew them way back when... :)
Email me at email@example.com and lets get your session scheduled.
Also, a couple of people have asked about the Sin shoots... they are now all shot and edited... So excited! Now comes the fun part and deciding which ones to use for the art show... and yes, they are for an art show which means that no, sorry, they will not be showing on the blog or facebook until after the show. If you would like to come, the show is Saturday, July 7th from 5:30 - 7:30 at the Renee Reedy studio in Columbus (across from the Rosenweig, under Cafe on Main). Be aware that although all my prints are ok for children to see, I am not the only artist at the show, so use your best judgement about that.
But I am excited.... for real!
Hope yall are having a great week!

Just wanted to wish a Happy Mothers Day to all the women out there... even the ones who are hurting for your own reasons. Big hugs, Sunday can be a hard day... know that someone is thinking of you.
In other news... I finally got all 7 of the sin shoots shot. Now I have to work on editing - ALOT of editing, but Im happy to do it, to see my vision come to life.
A huge thank you to everyone involved, especially Robin, Carl, Tricia, Rachael, Amber, Kimberly and Tim... I owe you more than you realize and one day I hope to repay the debt. Thank you for helping me to realize my dreams. And thank you to everyone who has believed in me along the way.
Good things are happening.
I hope yall all have an amazing weekend... Id love to hear from you - in comments or email at firstname.lastname@example.org

Anyway... thought while we were waiting, I could show you some of the stuff Im buzzing on this week... :)
Science geek alert… who knew that apples could keep potatoes from sprouting or eggs don’t have to be refrigerated… love these devices
Love all the color in this wedding… and the bridesmaids carried purses (with a flower pin)!!! Instead of bouquets – love, love, love this idea!
Dream corset wedding gowns!
DIY tissue flowers… looks easy enough that even I wouldn’t screw this up
This is kind of gross, but its so, so clever…
Starbucks secret menu… did you know this existed? And has anyone ever ordered anything off it?
Loving this trash the dress session…. Glitter!!!!
Some really, really great ideas for wedding favors
I want one of these so, so bad…. So cool, but so dangerous
The nerd in me abounds… a chemistry inspired tea set? Let me at it… :)
Ok, thats all I got for now... a quick tip - if you liked the Hunger Games books, you need to read The Maze Runner by James Dashner... good stuff.

Sometimes, the first frame is one of the best... :)Ummmm... can you believe how big this girl has gotten?!!!And isnt she gorgeous!Pretty much like her big brother... :)Pretty much like the whole family... :)Love sweet baby faces... :)Things are a little bit quieter now with sessions, which means I can fully focus on the ones that do have, and also continue working on my own creative projects. I love that the season goes from really busy to quiet to really busy to quiet. Right when I think Im feeling burnt out, I get a little break... and then right when I start getting bored, it heats up again. There's something so magical in that.
So whats up with the rain lately? Cant decide if it wants to come down in a deluge or just sprinkel or stay cloudy... make up your mind, silly rain... :)
A huge thanks to all who voted for my work at Market Street and all the people we ran into and got to speak to for a minute.... loved every second!
