The Advanced Selfie Challenge

I have mentioned this photographer previously in my blog when it comes to the advanced selfie. I subscribed to Sorelle Amore a few months ago. She is a high energy creative travel photographer who is passionate about her career. She is always pushing her own boundaries to grow and achieve all her dreams and goals. You can see some of her videos down below! If you get sucked into watching I hope you come back!

You all know I have been running low on creative energy and I thought a challenge would help me get my art gears turning again. So I have made myself an advanced selfie challenge. I am familiar with self portraiture but I have always stayed in a safe zone in fear of others opinions or the discomfort of public attention. I am going to try this self made challenge for 30 days.

So here are my rules:

  1. 6/7 photos must be taken outside of my apartment. I am giving myself one day to shoot in the my home just in case of weather or the strike of a good idea

  2. Must do a self portrait shoot once a day with a weekly blog post of them all even if they are failures.

  3. I must go out and do the shooting on my own, no other people to make feel less strange. (its time to be confident in my shooting and in myself)

  4. Try something different with each shoot. Since I am going to be using a tripod or near by props it can be easy to lock into one angle. I have to push myself to do something new and creative with each daily shot even if it fails.

    5. Have fun with it!

If you want to join me in my challenge tag me and let me know it goes for you!

Photoshoot with Michelle

This is what happens when your best friend asks you to be her content creator for the day and you drag your 10 pound camera with you everywhere you go. Michelle is such a beautiful woman inside and out and with it being the month of woman (ya you read that right google it its a thing) I am so happy to feature her and her amazing face on the blog. Since we have opposite styles we have another post in the works comparing editing techniques.

Skydiving Proposal

Probably my favorite photography/video shoot of 2018. When Micah told me his proposal plan I knew I wanted to be involved. I Immediately booked my plane ticket and flew to Tennessee. The first step in this epic weekend was accompanying him on the journey of buying the ring. Below you can see the styled shots of this gorgeous custom ring.

I styled the ring with some greenery sunflowers, her favorite flower, and had written notes from Micah to Sami. I used natural lighting to show off the rings best qualities. Next on our list of things to do was set up our plan. Micah had a whole day worth of activities for him and his soon to be fiance. To get shots throughout the day I went along and photographed/videoed their day getting a behind the scenes look at the day of the proposal. Below you can see some of the shots from their hiking trip!

Next up on this elaborate proposal was surprising her with skydiving. At the bottom was a sign saying “Sami will you marry me?” Both of the families and I were waiting at the bottom to see the final moment. I was able to capture the entire memorable event. Again below you can see the photos and last but not least the video from the entire weekend. Hope you love it as much as I do!
