What to Wear Wednesday!!! Color!!!

This week we are talking about color again. Last week was blue. This week is my favorite color....purple
Throughout history, purple has symbolized royalty. It also symbolizes magic, richness, and luxury. Light purple with pink is a popular combo for tween girls. Make it brighter and pair it with other bright colors and it is used to sell children's toys or for popular sports teams. Purple was also a color mentioned in the Bible, so it can also be associated with spirituality.

Here are some fun examples of sessions I did where my client was wearing purple:

Purple goes great with almost any skin and hair color. I like it best with blond hair and blue eyes. 

I have so many more examples in flowers and people and sunrises and.......the list goes on and on. 

Spring/Easter Mini Session coming soon!!!

A day in my life....

I don't exactly lead a super exciting life, but I have to say, I love my life. I have been really blessed. I have a great husband and 5 amazing kids, 2 of which are now on their own starting their own lives. But what do I do each day? I will use today as an example.
I got up at about 5:30 am and started my day with a devotional and prayer. I love this time of the day. It really gets my day off on the right foot.
At about 6 am, I got dressed and opened my bedroom door to the sweetest kitty ever. He is always waiting for me. I fed him, let the dog out, and gave them both a little morning treat.
Next, I ate my breakfast and sat for a few minutes before I finished getting myself ready for the day. By now my kids were up getting ready for school and eating their breakfast as well.
At 7 am we headed off to school and work. I dropped the kids off and then headed to my job at a local elementary school as a food and nutrition clerk. I got off work at 1:30 and ran errands. Some days I go to the gym. Today though, I ran a couple errands and then did a work out at home.
I wish my day was over at that point and I could sit and relax, but that is not how it went. Instead I did some chores around the house and then sat down to edit some photos I took for a sweet couple a few days ago.
Then it was time for me to feed the crew. They say I am a great cook, which I love to hear. I love taking care of my family and keeping them happy and comfortable. It is very important to me that my home is a place they love to be.
That leads me to what I am doing now. I am doing some computer work. In a few minutes, I will shut it off and sit and enjoy some time sitting with my hubby and watching some tv.
Like I said, it is not a glamorous life, but it is mine. God has blessed me!!! I am so very thankful!

What do you get for your money?

When you book a session with Remembrance Photography, what exactly do you get? 

  1. 1 hour of photo taking on location. On location means anywhere within the quad cities area of Prescott, Prescott Valley, Chino Valley, or Dewey. I also do photos outside the quad cities area for an extra charge for travel. 
  2. Unlimited clothing changes. You can bring as many outfits as your heart desires, just remember, changing clothes does cut into photo taking time. 
  3. 12 edited photos. When I say edited, I mean a tweak here and a touch up there. Usually it is nothing major, but just enough to make your photos pop. And if you want more than 12 photos, it's super easy. They are only $12 for each additional photo. It is worth it, to have that photo to remember your day.
  4. Photos are saved to a disk at no extra charge. You have complete control of your photographs. You get to print out whatever sizes you want. You get to print out as many as you want. I say that is worth the cost!!

 To check it out for yourself, go to and click on the prices tab. I have other great sessions as well. See what works best for you and call me today!!!!

What to Wear Wednesdays!!! Blue

I want to take a few weeks to talk about color. Color is everywhere and makes a statement. Clothing colors are no different. 
Let's start with Blue. Blue is a cool, calming color, that is popular in almost any shade. It is popular with large companies, hospitals and airlines. Blue gives a feeling of peace, stability, confidence, tranquility, and affection. I made my brand in the color blue, not just because I like the color, but  because of the feeling it brings to people.

Here are a couple examples of photos I have taken with blue.

Notice how the blue in their shirts make their eyes pop and their skin glow. 
Try using blue in your next photos!

What's with the mini sessions anyway?

I have done mini sessions several times in the past, but they don't seem to get the attention I would like to see them get. So, I thought, maybe I need to explain what my mini sessions are like. Well, in one word.....FUN!!!! Lol, ok I am biased. But really, what is with these sessions anyway? What makes them different then the other sessions. 
First, they are a smaller version of my full session. Mini sessions are convenient and quick. They work great for busy families who don't have a lot of time. Everything is set up and ready. All I need is your smile. 
Secondly, they are less expensive. You still get a variety of photos but at a lower price. There is no sitting fee. Just one easy price. 
Lastly, like I said, they are fun. Sometimes I have little gifts for the kids when they give me their best smiles. I sometimes even have a little something for the adults. I want this to be fun. Many people don't love getting their photo taken, but I try to make it an enjoyable time for everyone. 

What do you think? Doesn't sound so bad, does it? 
Keep an eye out for my next mini session. You don't want to miss it. 
Below I have a few examples of sessions I have done in the past.

Foto Tip Friday!!

These days we have so many options for photos. 
Photography studios are still around but you may have noticed that the department store studios are becoming a thing of the past. The digital era is making it easier to choose a backdrop and have it put into your photo in post processing. Phones have become better photo takers than an expensive camera.....well, sometimes.
 I prefer outdoor photography because it offers natural lighting and endless options. Drive around and you can find several areas that would make beautiful backdrops for your photos. Check out your own backyard for ideas. Browse photos online to get oodles of ideas. Keep in mind that the location should match the personality of the people in the photo. Have fun and try all sorts of different places. 
If you decide to go with the digital options, again browse online and you will find many ideas. 
Have fun being creative!

Easter Mini Sessions coming soon!!!

Small Business Group

I have a group page on Facebook. Did you know that? Well, if not here I am to tell you that yes, indeed, I do. It is called the Small Business Moms of Northern Arizona. This group is a place to advertise if you are a woman who has her own small business. It has been a great group, no drama. That is how I like it!!!! Check it out if you are a small business mom.

What to Wear Wednesday!!!! Head Shots

A head shot is mainly just your head, so it really doesn't matter what you wear. Right?  Wrong!!

It is just as important what you wear in this type of photo as any other, if not more. You are representing your business. So what you wear and how you feel in what you are wearing is vital.

 Here are some things to keep in mind when planning for your head shot photo:

* Wear clothes that are comfy and don't overdress.
* Avoid logos or branding
* Avoid busy patterns or large lines or stripes
* Bring a few different outfits to try different looks
* Keep jewelry simple
* Be prepared to remove piercings
* Make up should be clean and natural

Keep it simple and remember to dress comfortably. Not only comfortable fitting clothing but comfortable styles. You want to look confident and proud.

Digital Photography 1 online course

I have been a photographer for about 5 years now. I love it!!! So when the idea of teaching others how to do it came up, I thought, hey I can do that.  So, after a lot of work, my Digital Photography 1 Course was born. I started teaching it to groups of people on a random evening in person. But I felt like I was missing people. The nights I did it didn't always work for everyone, so I often would get asked to let people know when I was going to do another one. Then I got the idea to make it an online course. This can reach anyone anytime. People can take the class when it fits into their schedule. So, after a lot more work my Digital Photography 1 online course was born. I have to admit I am not an actor, so it is not exactly professional, but I think I did pretty good for my first try. Lol.

In this class I teach several things that are pretty basic when it comes to using a digital camera with lenses. Many people just set their camera to auto and click away. My class teaches you how to begin to choose the settings yourself. Like I said, it is pretty basic, so it doesn't go to deep into things. I didn't want to confuse people when some of them only know how to turn their camera on. 

Here is one of the slides I use in the video. It tells what I talk about. Exposure triangle, rule of thirds, lighting, and tips to remember when taking photos are the main points. I take time to talk about each one and explain what they do.

I am offering this class for only $25. I am throwing in some of my notes on aperture that dig a little deeper into what aperture is and does and how to adjust it for the photo you want to take. I also am offering each person who purchases this class, a membership onto a Facebook page that is private and only for people who have taken the class. This page allows for people to talk and exchange tips and tricks they learned from the class.

If you are interested in this class please contact me by email at . Feel free to contact me with any questions you may have as well.

My hope with this class is that the people who take it will better understand their camera and be on their way to taking the photos they want without the camera choosing for them. Cameras will only get more and more complicated so why not learn how to stay ahead of the game.
