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…


Halloween 2018

Every year for Halloween we try to think of a fun group costume.  (See previous years here.)  The girls have fun playing the part, and I have fun making the costumes and documenting it all.  I’ll be honest though, I do solicit the help of my family with these costumes on occasion.  We’ll chalk that up to a family bonding experience.

This year my oldest wanted to be Alice for Halloween.  My little one wanted to be a butterfly, so we had do some convincing to stick with a theme.  Luckily, it didn’t take much convincing.  As soon as we reminded her that the Cheshire Cat was PURPLE she was ALL IN!

This year’s location was quite the find!  With all of the rain that we’ve been having, my two first locations were completely under water!  However, it was meant to be because this location turned out better than I had imagined.

I give you…Alice in Wonderland.
