Professional Headshot Week

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!

February 11 – 15, 2019
Christy B Photography Studio
125 Veterans Pkwy., Pleasant Hill

Email christyBphotography@comcast.net or call or text 816-935-4961 to take the plunge. It’s a lot less painful than putting your actual weight on your driver’s license, I promise.

What’s For Dinner {January 2019 Menu Planner}

After nine months and 36 pounds down, I took a break from the Keto diet for two months to enjoy the holidays.  Five pounds later and all the carbs and sugary foods I had missed, it’s time to start back up again.  I’m kicking it back into high gear with dinners planned for the month of January.

While my dinner menu is Keto friendly, I do adapt some of what I’m cooking for the rest of the family.  So even if you’re not on the Keto diet, you can simply use the dinner ideas below and create your own regular/lower fat versions.  The items with a * in the meal calendar below include links that you click on for the recipe.

I received a new cookbook for Christmas so some of this month’s dinner recipes come from the book below.  Other recipes are found on the internet.

Here is what we are having for dinner this month.  Directions on how to use this meal calendar below.

A FEW NOTES:

NOTE 1:  The calendar below will change as the month change.  If you are viewing this post after July, just use the < > buttons to click back to July 2018.

NOTE 2:  Items marked with an (*) asterisk on the calendar below have recipe links you can refer to.  Simply click the item and a recipe link will pop up.

Lauren Alexandra Holiday Photos Recap {2018}

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

Fall Porch Decor {2018}

Happy fall, ya’ll.  I’m having so much fun decorating our newly remodeled outdoor space for each season/holiday.  Today I’m sharing a peek at our front porch.  I think this is the first year ever that I’ve not used mums in my fall/halloween decor.  The ferns have done so well on the front porch, I wasn’t ready to move them indoors yet.  This year I opted for simple fall with a touch of Halloween with our house guest, Mr. Bones.  He’s camped out and ready to greet the trick-or-treaters in a few weeks.
