Screen Shot 2013-11-19 at 9.40.48 AM


HEY GUYS!!!!!!

Yes, I’m yelling!! Too excited not to!

As a lot of you know (AKA, those of you who stalk us on instagram @justlovemepd), we rounded the troops and put together a big production yesterday in our brand new studio, featuring our sister company, Just Invite Me, Tamara Makeup & Hair Artistry, as well as some other AMAZING vendors! We are in the process of filming an AMAZING promo video for the studio with Mirar Productions, and yesterday was a start to the footage!

For those of you that know me, you know I reeeeeeally don’t like to be on the other side of the camera. Behind it is my comfort zone! Well yesterday’s shoot REALLY pushed me on SO.MANY.LEVELS. Not only was I nervous about being filmed, I also decided to bring in some strobes to shoot with (bye bye speedlights!) and I shot tethered to the computer for the first time!  You guys know that when I get in the zone, I go, go go! I’m used to moving pretty quickly, so this was an experience, to say the very least. While it did slow me down a little bit waiting for the image to pop up on the screen, it more importantly allowed me to focus a little more on what I was doing and really helped me perfect the image IN-camera instead of having to make fixes in post-production (editing).  As a photographer, minimal editing is a dream come true! Helloooooooooo more time to RELAX. (Wait, WHAAAAT??)

The new year is bringing new things, like our new collaborative brand “THIS WAY TO FABULOUS, INC.”  which will become the new parent company to all of our creative companies! You can see our new homepage at www.thiswaytofabulous.com! 🙂

All that said, I’m so excited to share a few of our sneak peek images, as well as a sneak peek into the beginnings of our Promo Video!
