Style Inspiration: Winter Lookbook 2016 Part II

It is officially time for part II of this winter lookbook. I really enjoyed putting these lookbooks together for my clients, and just for anyone who is interested in gathering a little more inspiration. I hope you enjoy!

Winter Lookbook 2016

You may have seen this shirt before, but I love how it easily transitions from a fall look to a winter look by adding a few accessories.

Fun fact: This huge pine tree has been sitting in our front yard for so many years. I call it my year round Christmas tree. It makes me so happy, especially during this season.

This sweater was something different for me, and my style, but I decided it was time to switch it up.  It’s a soft charcoal, grey with white specs on the main part of the sweater. The bottom, the cuffs on the sleeves, and around the collar are not as soft, and wispy as they appear. This was the only part I was disappointed in, because you do have to iron those bits quite a lot. Other than that, it’s a very warm sweater. I paired this look with leggings, and my grey boots.

Style Inspiration: Winter Lookbook 2016 Part 1

I am so excited to be back to blogging. After all the technology issues, bug fixes, etc.,  it’s just nice to be back behind my computer constructing this blog post. I love looking at style inspiration posts, and videos on YouTube so I wanted to start doing something like that for my clients. I know it’s tricky to pick out clothing for your sessions, but I hope this gives you some inspiration for your next shoot, or just inspiration in general.  I will leave links to a few of these style finds at the bottom of this post.

Enjoy!

Do not be fooled by this ‘Cold Shoulder Sweater’, the material is pretty thick so it’s going to keep you cozy. I paired this sweater with my fleece lined black leggings, and long grey boot socks. Of course being 5’2″ these, ‘one size fits most’ socks actually come up to my inner thighs, so I had to roll them down at least once.

Senior Style Inspiration: Fall Style

 Fall is my favorite season to photograph sessions in. The light changes, the leaves start turning different colors, and falling. It is the time of year for Pumpkin Spice everything at Starbucks, and Tortilla Soup at Chick-Fil-A. It’s the time of the year when I get to break out my tunics, leggings, scarves, cardigans, and on the occasion my sweaters. It’s just the best!

The most frequent question I get asked is, “What should I wear?” So, I put together 2 different fall inspired styles for you. If you’re not sure what to wear to your portrait session, feel free use these posts for inspiration.

Burgundy is definitely in for fall this year, and it’s such a beautiful color. I added a gold necklace just to break up the darkness of the outfit.

I love this classic black romper, but when I want to look a bit dressy I just add a really nice top on. The top was actually given to me as a present so I am not sure what store it is from.

Make Up Review and Routine

Hello lovelies! I have been loving experimenting with make-up here lately, and I wanted to give you a few tips, and examples for make-up for your photo shoot. Getting flawless looking make-up, starts with taking great care of your skin. I did a skincare blog post here, feel free to check that out first.

After washing my face in the morning, I will use my moisturizer then apply this primer. I use a color correcting primer, since I have a lot of redness in my skin, and it can be quite patchy. When I apply this, it feels like silk going on, very smooth, and soothing.

Then I use my ‘Miracle Blur’ to blur the dark circles under my eyes. This goes on cool, so it de-puffs my eyes quite a bit. (Quick tip: Anything cool will de-puff your eyes.) Make Up Blog Post
