Don’t Doubt Yourself, You May Just Have the Best Idea Ever (Or Close Enough, Anyway)

As a photographer I meet a lot of people who don’t always believe in themselves, their looks, their talents, their ideas, etc.

There’s a quote by Cynthia Heimel that I strive to live by “When in doubt, make a fool of yourself. There is a microscopically thin line between brilliantly creative and acting like the most gigantic idiot on earth. So what the hell, leap.”

I struggle to follow that at times too, but I’ve made my best photos (and, I won’t lie, some not so great ones too), and other crafts.

Photographs like this have been the result:

tooele photographer, tooele portrait photographer

And I just made a new hair clip following that same mantra:

steampunk brooch, steampunk hair clip

Pardon the cell phone pic 🙂

A steampunk/victorian inspired rhinestone hair clip. One of my favorites so far. I really adore anything steampunk or victorian. Seriously. Who doesn’t!? It consist of a brooch pendant I found out while shopping, a couple of necklace I took apart for other projects as well, and a vintage clip on earring that didn’t have a match. A bunch of rejects to make something that turns heads. I wore this out one day for fun and got so many compliments. Seriously, if I can do it you can too!

The Best Photos Speak Volumes

With film we savored each negative. We saved film for precious moments.

The wonderful (and sometimes terrible) thing about digital is that memory (cards, hard drives, etc) are so cheap that we can take pictures of everything and savor every silly, awesome, heartbreaking moment.

Sometimes, with all of the photos we’re inundated with, we forget to look at and savor each one.

Take this photo of my beautiful sister HayLee. I took it this week at Wheeler Farm in Murray, she’s 38 weeks pregnant with her second child.

The more I look at it the more I love it and think it’s my very favorite.

It’s so calm, there’s so much love there. A mother’s love. Not just a mother’s love, a wife’s love (hubby Heath came along too). All embodied in one photo.

HayLee is due any day now, but at this moment, mother and child are one, together and strengthening a bond that will last a lifetime.  Image

This. This is what makes me fall in love with photo again and again.

 

 

Take some time to go through your photos, recent or old. Sometimes we forget the treasures we have, those images that mean the most that we sometimes glaze over because there’s just so many memories now. Relive them. Love them. Share them! Share them with me if you’re brave enough, I love seeing what people love and why.

 

Love Yourself and the Camera Will Too

Women, and actually people in general, struggle with self-image. I know I do. Which is one reason I love what I do. I love making people feel amazing and gorgeous through the images I take.

Can I tell you something? I may not know you personally, but I love you and find you beautiful. Sound too cliche? Maybe. But I know that I’ve never had a client that I haven’t loved. Each child, couple, woman, teen, etc, they’ve shared so much with me. Their joys, their insecurities, their lives. And I’ve found every single one beautiful. Just sometimes it takes some extra work to make them see what I see.

I am overweight. I am. I was in denial for the longest time about it, but I accept it now and am happily working towards a healthier me. But I couldn’t do that til I loved myself, tummy and all, which is so difficult when all you can see is what is wrong with you. But let’s not focus on what we think, let’s focus on something positive about ourselves each day. I am not the number on the scale. I am a photographer, a daughter, a sister, a wife, and a friend. I am an absolute goofball with a slightly inappropriate sense of humor (that’s what she said), who loves making people laugh. My faults are no reason not to love who I am. As soon as I realized that, and as soon as I see other people realize that, they instantly look more beautiful. More importantly, they look happier. And, that shows, whether it’s in a photo or the mirror.

So, I’ll say it again. Love who you are today. There is so much to love.

RAW Artists–Alexis Anderson Hair Styling

Lex and I go way back. She’s always been a whiz with anything creative, and one of those things was and is hair styling. I love what she does because she’s never done anything conventional. To try and label what she does is impossible, she draws inspiration from so much around her and makes things all her own. It’s something I’ve always admired about her art.

I’m not the only one who’s noticed. Lex was featured in the RAW Artists fashion show in February. She asked me to photograph her models and the following is what happened. What an incredible place to see so much talent showcased. If you ever get a chance to go, I would highly recommend it!

Also, this goes without saying, should you need any hair anything, hit up Alexis Anderson, she works at Taylor D’Shaw Salon

Wheeler Farm Portrait Sessions with Derika and Mikael!

In the drive to always become better, I try to focus on various aspects of my photography. This time around it was posing.

First getting into the business of shooting people (I love being able to say that phrase), I was like “No way will I do any of that lame studio posing from 90s. No way, no how. I’m fresh and modern dang it! I want candids and that’s what people really want anyway.”

Right?

Welllll… Not exactly.

As I have grown and become more experienced, I’ve come to the conclusion that posing is not a bad thing. I’ll say it again, because it a realization that came very gradually, and it was such a turning point for me.  Posing is not a bad thing.

Here’s why:

  1. Think of the pictures your friends take of you while you’re being candid. Half-closed eyes, crooked smiles, sometimes (or often times) very unflattering angles. Some of these may even by why you hate having your picture taken (that’s me, anyway. Oh the irony.) It’s just what happens. Certain angles make anyone look terrible, that’s just how it is.
  2. Having a camera in your face for two hours straight is awkward. Especially when someone says “Just act natural.” Uhhh. Okay. Act naturally in front of a graffiti wall with no clue of what acting naturally is in such a situation. Right.
  3. Our body language speaks volumes. And if you’re not sure what to do with yourself in the photo, it shows. Posing, along with trust of your photographer, gives both your mind and body something to focus on to push the awkwardness away.
  4. Posing doesn’t have to be the hands on your chin, wrapped in a boa, glamour shot of the 90s. Posing can help show off your best assets and minimize or hide what you’re self-conscious about. While still making you look like it’s the most natural thing in the world (or close enough to it). For me, my chin has always been prone to doubleness, even though I didn’t have one, some pictures made me look like it. Now that I know how to pose to make that go away, or at least make it not as obvious, I’m ecstatic.

Tada! There you have it. Posing, done correctly, can be amazing!

Anywho, on to this shoot with Mikael and Derika, who were kind enough to let me practice various posing ideas with them Smile. I usually know how to give directions, but this time around I really wanted to focus on conveying that expression so common in fashion. I wanted Derika and Mikael to know a secret, a secret they were just happening to let you in on.

Salt Lake Garden Park Ward ~ Shari’s Bridals

This was a beautiful day for bridals! And aside from the 5 minutes we spent picking burrs out of the delicate tulle of Shari’s dress (no rips/tears, yeah!), everything went swimmingly.

Shari was beaming, and rightfully so.

We made our way around the park, laughing and making jokes in between poses. Shari was kind enough to laugh at my ultra corny jokes.

I’m pretty sure Shari is the best of Taylor Swift and Scarlett Johansson, along with a certain modesty and terrific sense of humor. I have had an absolute blast getting to know her during her engagements, her bridals, and at last throughout her wedding day (pics of that coming soon as well).

Baptism Photos and a Quick Lesson on Locations

Utah in winter is beautiful. Utah in winter is ugly. It was during one of these uglier parts (sky is gray, no snow falling, the air is still and gross), that I shot Lydia’s baptism portraits.

It’s so easy to take pretty photos with clear blue skies and pretty pink blossoms. But what about when conditions aren’t perfect? What if it looks like gunk outside?

I call that a challenge. Me and Lydia met that challenge and punched it in the face. Lydia, the spunky, hilarious girl full of laughter and ideas.

You don’t necessarily need the prettiest park out there. Something good to look out for, however, are elements that are “pretty” in an area. I put pretty in quotation marks because I count trees, rocks, fences, etc as pretty. This is why I try to arrive a bit early to shoots, to pick out the best areas so we can go straight to them and not dally, especially on a cold day such as this (or a hot day).

Walking around the park I made mental notes of the highlights of Murray City Park on this particular day: the stone stairs, the awesome knotty tree, the bridge, the treeline, the snow, and a gazebo. All within 30 seconds walking distance of each other.

Lydia was a champ in the cold, making for some truly gorgeous pictures. Just try and tell me she’s not channeling Snow White there!

Modeling with Jessiikuh

I had been looking forward to this shoot for a while. I was totally stoked to work with Jessiikuh, and I had made an awesome black netted birdcage veil just for the occasion. My new camera (the amaze-balls Nikon D700) had just come in a week and a half before, and I was stoked to test its abilities. Yet all was not as I meant it to be….

This day was another one of those Murphy’s Law days. Things kept going wrong. I had my eye on the weather and was expecting it to be about 50 degrees outside. A bit chilly, but definitely doable.

Wrong.

30-something degrees. Bah! So Jessiikuh and I shot outside for 10-15 minutes and called it quits. due to the overcast day, everything in our chosen location just looked “Meh”, so we headed back to Jessiikuh’s house to a do a few more shots in the warmth. Though the sky was dark, I wasn’t worried. I had my trusty SB-600 Speedlight with me. I only needed one light for what I wanted anyway.

Wrong.

The flash tube in my flash had cracked. Split in two. Well… crap. I can get it fixed, but that doesn’t help me at the moment… A super dim room with none of my extra lighting equipment? This was the part where I got to seriously test and push both my camera and my own skills in using the available light.

Ta Da!

Crafty Crafty! Ultra Awesome Hair Piece with Netting, Flowers, and Sparklies

It’s been a while since I’ve made a hair accesory, and I’m long overdue. Something I’ve noticed about my crafting is that I like things simple, and I like them to be original. Even more, I like them to be cheap. Because I am a total cheapskate. Growing up my mom bought me clothes from the DI and took me shopping when the sales were best (how she managed bringing up 6 kids so thriftily is beyond me!). Being married and poor reinforced those cheapy habits (my wedding dress cost $200 and I still usually buy my clothes from Savers), and it’s just a part of me now.

Anywho, this hairpiece was made with wide netting, flowers from a few scraps of fabric my mom had, a fascinator I had previously taken apart, and some various jewels I’ve taken from broken jewelry. All in all, probably cost me about $4-5. So really all you need is some scraps, google (I wish I could remember the link I found to make the flowers, I’ll update it later but it’s super easy to make them), some broken/bought jewelry, and a hot glue gun.

I’ll be using it in my next shoot. Maybe after that I’ll wear it to church ;). Or wait for Halloween. Either way, I’m gonna find a way to wear it a lot.

A Quick Look at Jenni’s Bridals at Garden Park Ward

Bridal shoots are always a test in patience for me. I always want to show them to the world, but understandably need to wait until after the wedding. Well, Jenni was married just a little over a week ago (working on those as we speak), and I can finally show off her bridal photos. I may a little more stoked about that than any person should be. Then again, that’s just me in general.

Also, cute story of the session: a mother and her daughter walked up to us while Jenni was sitting on the grass. Mother explains that her daughter could not stop talking about the princess, and realllly wanted to meet her. Poor little thing got so shy in front of Princess Jenni that she totally clammed up and hid behind her mom, still peeking around to stare. It was the cutest thing ever!

Also, major kudos should be given to Jenni. The best times of the day to shoot are the golden hours just after sunrise and just before sunset. Since there was a wedding at Garden Park Ward later on in the day and into the evening, we had to shoot in the morning at 8am, which means Jenni was up at 4 or 5 I believe so she could get ready. That’s dedication! And it totally paid off.

Here’s a few from the set, I will be putting a lot more of the photos on Facebook soon, so keep an eye out for it at http://www.facebook.com/#!/pages/Epic-Photography-and-Design/102147369868850,

I’ll update this post when the gallery is up. Oh and while you’re there, check out our wedding photography giveaway worth $2,000, it ends October 24, so hurry!

Pride and Prejudice and ZOMBIES, Oh My!

Every so often I try to do a creative shoot that’s just for me. I love working for my clients and often our ideas mesh together super well, but every once in a while I want to do something for me. This also gives me a good opportunity to experiment with new techniques that I can later use for my clients.

I often feel inspired by music and books. You may remember my When the Day Met the Night  shoot inspired by a song from Panic! at the Disco. Since then I haven’t found myself with much spare time or creativity, but my photo season is winding down a little bit and I want to do something fun for Halloween. I had toyed with the idea of doing shoots based off of all of Jane Austen’s novels…. But, with winter just around the corner (well, it could already be here since it snowed last week!) I figured I’d put that off til the springtime. In the meantime though, I could combine my love of halloween with my love of Austen and do a shoot based off of the novel “Pride and Prejudice and Zombies” by Seth Grahame-Smith. Sooooo good. And gory.

Here’s the deal: I have volunteers for Darcy and Elizabeth already… But who would like to be a zombie? Or help with hair and makeup? I would love as many zombies as possible. For models and stylists/makeup artists who donate their time and talents, I will give a cd of pictures (that’s a given), but I will also do a free shoot in trade.

Tentative date is October 22 (possibly the 29th?). Time is still to be determined. Location: I’m thinking the International Peace Gardens or Wheeler Farm right now, but am open to ideas. Times and dates and locations are all tentative as I want to get an idea of every person’s schedule and try to work with it. Interested? Send an email to sheadrake@live.com.

Jordan River Temple ~ Jillian and Justin’s Epic Wedding

Jillian and Justin were married Saturday, August 20, at the Jordan River Temple. This is a temple where you don’t see too many weddings anymore. But, after yesterday’s wedding, I hope to see more! I think the Jordan River Temple has some of the most gorgeous flowers around, I couldn’t name half of them, but just know they were exotic and gorgeous.

From my first emails with Jillian I knew we would get along well, and we totally did. Together along with Justin, we quoted everything from Charlie the Unicorn to Seinfeld to Pride and Prejudice. Each session brought fresh laughs and even more gorgeous photos. I’ve been so busy that I haven’t updated the blog though. So I will get on getting some of their engagements and bridals/groomals up here. But I did want to share some fun moments while they’re still fresh in my mind.

Here’s one gorgeous photo:

As we were heading back towards the temple to take more photos, Jillian let me know of a certain look she wanted. She’s so modest that she asked if that was okay, and of course I replied that I love it when people tell me what they want (after all, it’s her wedding!). So she immediately responded, “What I really really want?” And I sang back, “So tell me what you want!” And all together (except Justin) we sang the rest of the chorus from the Spice Girls song.  Then we burst out laughing. Then there may have been a little more quoting from Pride and Prejudice. It’s the little moments like that, the inside jokes shared with the bride and groom and their families, that I love.

Here’s one of the ring shots:

Right after I was finished photographing the rings I went to give them back to Jillian and Justin while they were in their receiving line. When I went to hand Jillian’s back to her she held out her hand to me, so I got down on one knee and put it on her finger, much to the entertainment of everyone around. Then I went back to sneaking around looking for moments and interactions.

Those were the super awesome stories. There were plenty of jokes in between, but those were the big two. I love how open and just how fun Justin and Jillian are together. They’re the couple you just know are the life of the party, greatly optimistic and sure to make friends wherever they go. Their friends were the same way, so throughout the whole night it was a great party. Thanks so much Jillian and Justin. I loved your excellent taste in venues and detail shots (more will come later, I promise!). But here’s a couple more for now.

Edit to add: Apparently this is my 100th blog on here. Whoooooaaaa! Super crazy and awesome 🙂

Saltair with Jennifer and John!

What to say about Jenni and John? Well first off, they are haaawwwt. Jenni has some of the most unique eyes ever, blue and green with flecks of gold.  You read that right, gold!

So not only are these two hot, but they’re totally modest about it. Even more than that, they are super relaxed and laid back, even with my requests for them to sit in the gross sand and sit in the middle of road, they were all for it. When I got home I told my husband I have the best couples ever. We hang out, make jokes, laugh, etc. Oh, and ya know, take some pictures and all. I’m pretty dang stoked for Jenni’s bridals and wedding coming up in October, that’s all I can say.

Also, just a heads up, Jenni and I rang bells together. Literally. We were part of an elite force known as Jordan High’s Bell Choir. I know what you’re thinking, how did JHS manage to get such a smokin hot bell choir? Because chicks dig bells.

 

Also, to see more of the sexy goodness that is Jenni and John, see all of their engagements at Drake Photography and Design on Facebook
