What 2 Wear | Chokers

Chokers are not just stuck in the nineties anymore! In fact, you may have seen them on some of the most prominent fashion bloggers around. They’re making a comeback, in the biggest way. Even if you’re not a real edgy fashionista, anyone can incorporate the simple choker accessory into their wardrobe. A simple, thin black choker can elevate a number of outfits, including skinny jeans and cardigans, and something a little fancier (think bows, or laces) can amp up a velvet minidress for a real nineties vibe.
Forever 21 has a ton of these inexpensive chokers for sale, at prices that are so low, you’ll be able to afford one for every outfit you own! We love this lace up, black choker that’s under $10 for the girl who loves her moto jacket and heels, and dainty, double chevron gold set for the more feminine dresser.
Contact us to book your senior session today, and we can definitely find a way to include your favorite necklace!

Featured Session | Zee | Augusta, GA Senior Photographer


I absolutely love the way this entire session came out…Zee is a senior at Lakeside High School, and graduating in the Class of 2017. She currently works with the Lakeside Support Coalition at her school, and is involved with DECA. In her free time, she enjoys being part of the Love Unlimited Choir, spinning, and babysitting. She also loves being with her fiends, running, and shopping at places like Free People and Nordstrom. “My friends would probably describe me as bold, caring, and funny”, she explained, “My friends and grandmother inspire me the most because they have taught me to not care about what others think, to live my life how I want to live it, and not to waste all my time dwelling on others. life is short, so go live it!” Zee was really excited about senior year, and the new opportunities and things that come with it. She shared that she was looking forward to spending this last year of high school with her closest friends.

One of her biggest accomplishments was completing three years of fashion marketing classes, and she hopes to continue down that pathway. Zee wanted a very unique, urban senior session, so I tried to give her a little bit of everything. We did lots of different outdoor locations, and tried to channel her love of Free People stylings. I had a great time working with her, and hope you love her senior session as much as I do!

Welcome 2017 | Happy New Year


Make New Year’s goals. Dig within, and discover what you would like to have happen in your life this year.
This helps you do your part. It is an affirmation that you’re interested in fully living life in the year to come.
-Melody Beattie

It’s a new year! We are so excited to have wrapped up another successful year here at Janice Freeland Photography…I don’t take it for granted that I get to do this as my “job”! I feel so honored that I’ve gotten to meet such amazing seniors this past year, and am eagerly anticipating the ones that will come to me in 2017.

I’m also excited to continue to hone my own personal skills and craft. I believe a photographer should always be seeking to improve and grow as an artist. You can be on the lookout for new and fresh things coming to seniors in 2017, including new techniques, new stylings, and new ideas. I’ll also be posting here on the blog, with new What to Wear Features and style tips. We remain your source for senior style and ideas!

I can’t wait to meet you. To contact your session for the 2017 year, please contact me today.

The Perfect Outfits for Every Holiday Occasion | Style and Inspiration


Wondering what to wear to all those holiday functions? We have you covered…literally! Here’s our picks for the perfect outfits that will keep you looking stylish, from office parties to present opening!

-Holiday Party Dress: Every girl needs the perfect dress and we prefer when that dress is under $100! After all those gifts, who has a ton of extra money to spend on a dress?! This BB Dakota dress is beautiful, has an open lace back, and is still appropriate and modest enough to add a sweater and tights to, and wear to church (depending on how tall you are, it could be a tad short). It comes in a ton of perfect colors, but we like the expected green for a party dress. And at just under $75, it’s budget friendly as well.

Family Brunch Ensemble: For brunch with family and friends, you need a casual-but-still-polished outfit that will still look great for inevitable photos. We love this tunic (under $50!!), which has established a cult following from fashion bloggers everywhere. Now we understand why…it’s long length covers the rear and can be worn with leggings, or you can tuck it into a high waisted skirt for another look. We would pair it with skinny jeans and cozy boots for brunch, and add a long cardigan over the top. Don’t forget a sparkly pair of earrings to make your outfit shine!

-Christmas Day: If you have young relatives or siblings, chances are, you’ll be up early to open gifts! For this occasion, you want an ultra-cozy outfit that is a little bit more put-together than jammies! We say, opt for a high topknot for your hair, and just a sweep of bronzer to look a little more awake! Then layer on high waisted leggings (we love these ones from Zella), a tunic tank, and a cozy cardigan for a little more coverage and warmth. Add warm UGGS slippers, and you’ll be ready for all the hot cocoa and presents you can handle!

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays from us here at Janice Freeland Photography! Look for new blogs in January!

What to Wear Wednesday | Booties to Tie For!

See what we did there? Ha! We love these booties “to tie for” and we think you’ll love adding this super stylish piece to your winter wardrobe, too! Though a sky-high lace up heel isn’t for everyone, it can also be toned down with a chunkier, stacked heel and a lower height for the less adventurous gal. Here’s how we would wear these fun pieces:
-Leopard lace up wedges: Pair these with a black skinny pant or skirt and a chambray. The classic combination of black, denim, and leopard never goes out of style, and looks chic for just about any occasion. It is also demure enough for the workplace.
-Chunky lace up boot: With a chunkier heel, you can opt for an outfit featuring a white tee, a longer length cardigan, and dark skinny jeans for a simple and classy ensemble. You could wear it to a holiday party, shopping (if your feet can handle a heel), or for a family christmas dinner.
-High cage heel: These are the perfect shoe for girl’s night out! When you’re ready to party or attend a fun dinner out, try these with a burgundy pant and a velvet top for a look you’re sure to win with!
