What to Wear Wednesday | Bomber Jackets

Apr
24th
Like the rest of the country, we love the bomber jacket trend! We love it because it is so accessible; pretty much everyone can wear it, no matter your personal style. There are preppy versions from American Eagle and JCrew, and more edgy styles in camo, satin, and velvet from clothiers like Zara and Urban Outfitters.
These jackets go with just about everything in your closet, but if you have a more textured or printed one, treat it like a statement piece. Pair with solid tees and jeans, or skinny black leggings and sneakers. The bomber jacket is best utilized by making your staple and basics look really stylish! We love it paired with sneakers from Tretorn or Converse, and distressed jeans for the perfect weekend look.
If you want to branch out, lots of fashion bloggers are layering this over slip dresses and tees for a nineties vibe. Add simple slides and hoop earrings to create a retro and super fun look!
Want an affordable bomber jacket? Forever 21 and Charlotte Russe have tons under $25, and our favorite is this one. We would wear it with dark jeans and a grey tee, since it’s got a lot of pattern on it. Enjoy more bomber jacket looks below!

What sets me apart as a senior photographer?

Apr
21st

Caroline is such a beauty, isn’t she? I loved getting to know her, and celebrating her senior year with this milestone session! I wanted to talk a little bit about my senior sessions, and why my style sets me apart as a senior photographer.

-I offer three different tiers and packages: the BFF, the Couture, and the Drama. Each one gives my senior clients the right fit for their individual needs and their budget. I love my my couture session, which is my most popular option, because it comes with hair and makeup, and includes two hours of shooting time! My clients seem to think this one covers all their needs, and they really love their premier ordering session afterwards.

-My style is fresh, modern, and imaginative: Sure, I could just snap a few portraits, but I believe in dreaming up a session that looks like YOU and the things you love. The way you smile, the way you laugh, the way you walk and talk…all of these things belong in your senior session. I also love using props like floral crowns, beautiful gowns, etc., to include stylized looks as well.

I have a proven track record of publication, success, and happy clients! You can trust me with your big senior moment, because I’ve been doing this for awhile. I am passionate about what I do, and I believe in doing it the best way that I can. To see publications I’ve been included in, you can check them out HERE. And, if you need one more reason to book, check out Caroline’s session below!

What to Wear: The Knit Sheath Dress

Apr
17th

We have found the PERFECT DRESS, and we wanted to share it with you today on the blog! Here are the details: It’s a Leith brand knit dress from Nordstrom, and it’s $56.00. While this might seem pricey for a knit dress, we think you’ll agree it’s worth every penny when you have it!

It’s made of a sturdy knit that is slightly ruched on one side. This makes it super flattering across the tummy and hips, and the longer length ensures you won’t be tugging it down all day! The tulip hem makes for the illusion of a longer leg, and yet is modest enough for work or church if you are not super tall.

The neckline is similar to a crew neck tee, and covers all bra straps, which makes it even easier.

How should you wear it? We suggest two ways:

  1. With converse sneakers or flats, and a jean jacket. It’s a timeless, classic look that is universally flattering. You could wear this look to the farmer’s market, shopping at the mall, or to lunch with friends.
  2. With heels and a long duster sweater: A longer sweater keeps the proportions interesting and covers the more snug rear of this dress, which keeps it looking nice for church or work. You could ditch the sweater for a night on the town!

Featured Session | Moira | Augusta, GA Senior Photographer

Apr
10th

Moira was a senior from Greenbrier High School, and I am so glad she asked me to do her senior session! She is a bright and fun young woman who has an urban, bohemian style and I wanted to capture that with her senior shoot. At her school, Moira is involved in HOSA, Clinical, and the cross country team. She dreams of one day being a pediatric nurse, and has already begun her journey to do so: she has earned her CNA license already. In her free time, she enjoys running, cooking, and shopping at stores like American Eagle, Free People and Nordstrom.

For her shoot, I wanted to give her a good mix of downtown city shots, and some bohemian styled images to suit her wardrobe. She picked a beautiful variety of outfits, including a cold-shoulder top and a bohemian white dress that I absolutely loved; it looked stunning in the field we found. Choosing a senior wardrobe can be challenging, especially if you wear a wide variety of styles, but I’m always here to help! I love guiding you towards flattering and stylish wear that will photograph perfectly, and thats why I share plenty of What to Wear posts here on the blog! Stay tuned as we head into spring and summer for more inspiration and ideas.

What to Wear: Off the Shoulder Tops | Augusta Senior Photographer

Mar
27th

The off the shoulder and cold shoulder blouses are everywhere this season, and we are loving them! It’s a fun way to wear a flirty, cheery trend without baring too much skin. Here’s some of our favorites:

The white, feminine blouse from Madewell is really girly and pretty! It’s a bit pricey, but well worth it for Madewell quality! We would pair it with distressed denim as shown to dress it down, or add dark skinnies and heels for a fun girls night out. A simple gold or silver necklace will make it even better!

This inexpensive, floral option is from American Eagle, and is so cute! We like it with high waist denim shorts, or with distressed denim and espadrilles.

And Forever 21 never disappoints with affordable, pretty pieces that you can wear again and again. This floral top is under $15 and would be so cute with shorts, or tucked into high waisted jeans and with wedges.

And this one is more fitted, so it would be cute tucked in or with a skirt! Remember to wear a strapless bra to keep the style looking flattering! Try it with a pencil skirt and jacket for a look thats work-week friendly!
