Happy Valentine’s Day! Sending my love to you all – my clients over the last 12 years, my blog readers, my social media followers, the acquaintances I’ve met through this business and to anyone in need of an extra tight hug today. I love YOU with all of my butt…and my heart.
For several years now boutiques have become a popular option over box stores for fun, unique clothing. If you do your homework and buy carefully, you can find some really great deals on cute clothing, shoes and accessories from online boutiques.
Along with trendy online boutiques, fashion bloggers, or influencers, are a dime a dozen these days. But there is a good reason why you might want to follow a few that share a similar style as your own. Look at the bloggers and social media influencers as your own personal shoppers. They try-on the clothes, tell you about the quality, how an item fits and feels, whether it’s recommended to size up or down, where to buy, and when there are money saving sales. They do the hard work for you. It helps in wondering if an item online is going to fit without the capability of trying on before ordering. Instagram has a plethora of influencers to follow to help inspire your own closet.
Whether searching for everyday clothing, a special occasion dress or photoshoot outfits, you can use your favorite fashion bloggers as a source to find inspiration for what to wear. Shopping online boutiques can also help you find trendy clothing that is different than what everyone else is wearing from the local mall. Today I’m sharing a few online boutiques that I would highly recommend. Keep in mind, online boutiques often have sales and free shipping options. It’s worth subscribing to their newsletters for sale notifications. There is really no need to pay full price unless you just can’t wait for that perfect item. I also recommend studying up on the return policies in the event you need to return an item. The return policies vary at each boutique.
It’s time for our 2nd year of offering very gently worn, like new prom dresses for sale to this year’s prom goers. We welcome students from all area schools to either bring in dresses for sale or shop.
How long has it been since you last updated your headshot? It’s kind of like updating the weight on your driver’s license – just not something you want to make it a point to do, right? Trust me, I hear you! Between you and me…I haven’t seen 115 pounds since I was 16 years old. ? But I did just update my own headshots (scroll for proof).
You already have to get ready for work. Why not take 15 minutes before, during lunch, or use it as an excuse to get out of work and stop by the studio for fresh new headshots? It’s a proven fact your clients are more drawn to you when they can put a face with a name. Whether you prefer classic business headshots or more relaxed lifestyle shots, I’ve got you covered. View your photos on the spot or head back to work and view your options online. Choose one digital image or up to five. Whatever works best for you. I’m here to make the dreaded process as simple as possible. Let’s do this!

FIVE YEARS! This is the fifth year I’ve been lucky enough to partner up with Lauren Alexandra, a children’s boutique in Kansas City, for holiday photos of their sweet clients. This is just a sampling for the photos we captured this year. It’s always such an honor to meet everyone, play fun games with the kiddos and create sweet images that they can share with their family & friends this holiday season. #blessed
