Spanx for Your FACE!

I’ve shared before that when I edit my photos, I strive for the most minimal edits possible. Not because I’m lazy but because I’m honest. That scares some people. They want parts of their face or body photoshopped-I don’t even own a copy of photoshop at this point!

Where am I going with this? Have you heard of Proactive? Let’s be real. Who HASN’T seen a Proactive infomercial?! Did you know that the creators of Proactive are doing their own thing now? Something known as Spanx for your face (that makes me giggle every time I say it. I love it!). Rodan + Fields skincare line is quality.

Are you sick of rosacea or adult acne or wrinkles? Do you hesitate to have your photos done because of your skin? Maybe Rodan + Fields is your answer! Here are some photos from my friend, Karen, a Rodan + Fields rep:





These results speak for themselves. Having confidence when you look in the mirror or flip through your photo albums is empowering.

I am just full of tips lately…here’s another one! Accessories! My dear friend, Rebekah, is the owner and creator of Bella Blossoms. She makes beautiful necklaces and hair pieces, along with maternity sashes & more! I have ordered some of her Blossoms for past sessions…




Yes, my niece, and even my fur baby have blossoms!

Here’s a link to the Bella Blossoms Facebook page :: Maybe you want to order Blossoms of your very own for your next session!

And, once again, I want to make sure I share that this is not a sponsored post. I’m not compensated for writing this. Nor was it requested. I’m just sharing because I love Bella Blossoms!


Jamberry Nails For Days

Literally. For days.

Let me explain…I am the WORST at painting my nails. Seriously. It’s bad. A friend of mind sells Jamberry nails (like, she’s a dealer). I was skeptical. Really, the only way polish lasts for me is if it’s a gel manicure done at a salon. Everything else chips or peels within a day or two. Kelsey sent me a sample and I have had them on for almost a full week already with no chips or problems. And! Bonus! They were super easy to apply to my nails! I had both hands done in under 5 minutes. So, obviously I have to shout this news from the internet rooftops! I definitely plan to order more.

And, full disclosure, Kelsey did not ask me to write this. I am not compensated in any way for this post. I just love sharing tips like this because when something makes life better or easier, you shouldn’t keep that to yourself! Here’s a link to my Jamberry dealer’s website ::


What does this have to do with photography?! I like for my nails to look nice when I meet with clients and they take a beating just in everyday life. Also, maybe my lovely clients are looking for fun nail art ideas to include in their next session. It’s all connected.
