Welcome to my blog!

Thanks so much for dropping by my blog and taking a peak.  Now I never claim to know everything, or be perfect, or even being able to spell!  I work really hard to not only be a good photographer, but have a personal connection to my clients and understanding what they want (especially when they might not know).  In addition I love to help others improve their own pictures.  Let's face one can afford a personal photographer to follow them around 24/7 (but if you do know someone give them my name!). 

My blog has a collection of advise, current photo experiences and the personal updates.  My new 2012 series (TT- Tipsy Thursday) is a combo of all kinds of questions I've received, things I've seen & even those mistakes I've made in my years of shooting.  I'm ALWAYS in need to know what other people want to hear about, so please email me with ANY suggestions.  Again thanks for stoping by and hopefully you enjoy!

Tipsy Thursday #8

When booking a photo shoot many clients ask me about tips.  BIG tip I can say is bring powder.  Yes even guys!  Even if you have good, tight, youthful can reflect light and create an unflattering shimmer and look almost oily.  A light translucent powder with a clean brush or pad (not being used for blush or shimmer powder).  When you apply make sure the tap and remove the extra, nothing worse that clumpy uneven spots on your face.  If using a pad, try not the smear or press down too hard.  Same goes for guys but only thing to make sure you look at is any facial hair, powder can be attracted to facial hair and make it look weird and off color.  If too much is put on by accident, you can dust off the applicator and try to remove...or get a towel and BLOT off, do not smear.

So yes, powder is a very good idea even if you are just doing pictures on Christmas morning.  I will often not wear makeup but if I know pictures are being taken I will brush over my face real quick to take the sheen off!!!
