This is the Greatest Show

Back in 2018, before social distancing was a thing, I attended an in-person class and shoot-out sponsored by Color Inc. This was a sequel to the shoot-out I blogged about here. For this one, the theme was The Greatest Showman. Chubby Cheek Photography and Sally Kate Photography again performed their magic and made this event so much fun. I highly recommend attending something like this when life gets back to normal.

Nursery Rhymes With A Twist

Once upon time, pre-Covid, the world was able to get together and do fun things like styled shoot-outs and in-person classes. Since that isn’t happening right now, I thought that I’d share some of my faves from way back in the spring of 2017.

This particular shoot-out/class was sponsored by Color Inc. (who by the way is a fabulous print lab that is very customer focus based). The class featured Chubby Cheek Photography and Sally Kate Photography. These two ladies are masters in the styled children genre. It was so fun to see their ideas come to life and have the opportunity to shoot these nursery rhyme scenes. And you may notice a familiar little model in some of these photos as well…


Exploring New Depths

One of the items on my summer bucket list is to dive into underwater photography. (See what I did there? Ha!).  But let’s face it, I’m too chicken to put my DSLR under water, so the Go Pro Hero 5 has become my new best friend.

These are my first attempts at using the Go Pro under water.  Before attempting these, I first read the Go Pro guide from Chubby Cheek Photography.  This guide is perfect for the hobbiest photographer or the professional just wanting to step back, relax, and have fun!  She goes over Go Pro settings, water types, lighting, editing, and even outfits.  Check it out and buy it here.

You know what the best part of using this is?  My kids love it just as much as I do.  It’s a win-win!
