Portrait Session with Orlando Ingram

I needed some good before and after pictures and I knew just the person to ask!

Orlando Ingram is an AMAZING photographer.  He is so easy to work with and he makes you feel so comfortable.  His attention to color and detail make his work stand out above the rest! If you are looking for a photographer Orlando is your guy!

Braids & Buns

These pictures were taken at the same shoot as “Cat Eyes and Red Lips” by Olivia Stone Photography.  I love braids and I am so happy they have made such a strong comeback!  Braids are perfect for bridesmaids.  It is something you can incorporate on everyone for a sense of fluidity.  Braids can be done with the bridesmaid who wants to wear her hair down, but a little more dressy  It can be worked into a half up look, or my favorite the upside down french braid into the ballerina bun.  I first saw this look on Lauren Conrad’s: thebeautydepartment.com.  As soon as my hair is long enough, this will be a go-to hairdo for me!

Past Portfolio

As I was preparing to write another post, I found myself coming across some old photos of work I did in Michigan.  Michigan is where I truly found my love for wedding parties!  In the studio I worked at, Dean Sadler’s Hair & Makeup Studio, weddings were top notch.  Dean had this beautiful room that the bridal party would rent out and he would set out a spread! There would be mimosas, coffee, tea, bagels, fruit, pastries, etc.  It became a party instead of work! I loved having the bridal party all in one room enjoying each other.  Since, I do no have the space to host bridal parties, I travel to them.  The same feel is somewhat recreated in a hotel room, everyone packed in exchanging laughs and memories.  I have been trying to brainstorm ideas about how to bring the added feature of a spread on the road with me.  Any ideas?

I owe a lot of my tricks of the trade to my old boss, Dean.  He was a hair and makeup stylist on the sets of television shows and movies in the past.  He is truly an artist and I miss him dearly!

Promo Shoot

A little while back I had the pleasure of working with a wonderful photographer, Olivia Stone.  Now I may be partial, considering she is my sister-in-law, but I have always loved her work.  I love how she sees colors and small details in pictures.  Every time I work with her, I feel completely comfortable just letting her free.  I don’t give her any direction, I just let her do what she loves!  I have never been disappointed with her work.  She is new to the business, so please find “Olivia Stone Photography” on Facebook and check out her photos!
