Summer Gals - Candy Land

We finally got to do our Summer Gals  Candy Land Session. With this session I wanted to do something different with the girls, Bright Colors, Dresses, Pretty Hair and BIG CANDY!. Where on earth was I going to get big lollipops from. Luckily I have a very creative sister who came through and made them for me. We started our shoot with hair and make up with awesome music in the background and some donuts. Perfect morning.

 

All of the girls were so nice to each other and helpful, their colors popped, some used stuff from the style closet and some brought their own.

Thank you to the moms for being patient and waking up with your girls! Can't wait to blog about our flower girl session keep and eye out!  Check out some of photos from our colorful session! 

 

The Summer Gals Program is about bringing girls from all over together to create friendships. I love the diversity of each of the girls on the Summer Gals Team.

Senior19Team

This weekend I got to hang out with some of the members from my Senior19Team. We had a pretty good time despite the heat in Cleveland,MS. We started the day with hair and makeup and some pizza. This was our get together for our spring session! (Can't wait to post those) while everyone was getting hair and makeup we did our shoots in our Custom Hadonica's Photography T-Shirt. Each senior on the team gets one of these with their names on the back. Check out some of the photos of us getting ready and meet the team!.

Thanks,

The perfect client

I have been meaning to write this blog, however it just kept slipping my mind. Finally I have the time.

Recently I had the opportunity to photograph the perfect client, when I say the perfect client I don't mean perfect figure or face, I mean a client that understands why I am a women's portrait photographer, she understood the value of a photograph, she felt empowered and remembered different versions of herself. As women we sometimes work 5 times harder we can do what a man can ( dont worry this isnt a man versus woman blog LOL ) while we are busting our rumps to be mom, business women, and proving that we can do it all often times we as women are left on the back burner, we know how important it is to have photographs so we photograph our spouse, and children. However when was the last time you actually took a day to enjoy yourself? When was the last time you said, " I need to have photographs of myself for my children to remember what I looked like" we don't because we are too busy caring for everyone else that it just slips our mind and BAM here we are 20 years later with a snapchat filter selfie showing our older kids and grandchildren but no real portraits of ourselves. Meghan, she was a business woman, a glam at heart, a rocker, a wife, and a strong woman with an incredible story.  Before she even finished her session I knew she was more than a client, she would become a friend. Being a photographer is not simply about snapping photos, it is about creating memories, helping you find yourself, you don't have to glam if you dont want to, you can be a rocker, tomboy, just be you, create memories along the way.

Meghan, I cannot express how much of an honor it was to photograph you, before our session I thought about going back to my day job (Emergency room Registered Nurse). After speaking with you and the way you spoke about how empowering the session was, how it reminded you of all the things you were it created a spark in me that wanted all of my clients to experience this. Thank you for being the perfect client, thank you for seeing the value in professional portraits.

Enjoy this awesome rocker mom portraits below!

Skating with the Senior19Team

Over the weekend we decided to dress crazy and head to our local skating ring. I loved how creative the Senior19Team got with their outfits! one member even had a fanny pack!  I even learned that PJ, Angel, and TK could hold a basket ball with one hand, that was pretty neat!

I loved the bright colors, ignore the quality of the images it was super dark!

P.S I can't skate! LOL
