and she said…

All I said was, pull out anything from your closet that you feel amazing in. Her smile dropped a bit and said…

I don’t feel amazing in anything.

It takes my breath away every time I hear this. I’m looking at this fresh faced, lanky girl with a beautiful smile and hair that just won’t quit and this is the response I get?! Honestly, I hear this in some way shape or form a lot. I’m going to get to the point very quickly here. This is not JUST about getting your picture taken. If that’s all you want, go to the yearbook photographer.

If you want MORE so much MORE.

Get in touch with me to discuss a photoshoot.

What you need to know about Social Life on Campus series : Quinnipiac

Christina is one of those people who shines from the inside out. Her enthusiasm is contagious. She’s a sophomore at Quinnipiac and what I loved so much is underneath her signature is this quote: “What would you attempt if you knew you could not fail?” -Robert Schuller. Love it! Read on for the social lowdown at Quinnipiac.

College girl spinning in the sun

Secret Study spot: The second floor of the main cafeteria. It’s pretty quiet, there are comfy booths with plenty of space to work and you are really close if you ever need a snack to keep you going!

Late night cravings: Falcon Pizza mozzarella sticks or Insomnia Cookies!

Most fun campus traditions: The first night of the fall semester, all of freshmen meet up at the bobcat statue in the center of campus. It was a great opportunity to meet new people and I made friends there that I am still close with today!

Dorm, Bar or Greek?: QU is definitely a “bar school.”

A typical weekend is….: TOADS…every Saturday. Going to Toad’s Place in New Haven has been a Quinnipiac tradition for years! It’s one of those places that you can’t describe, you have to experience a Toads night to really get it.

How I met my closest friends: My sorority! I am a part of the Iota Mu chapter of Chi Omega. The girls in my chapter are my sisters, my best friends, my motivators, my study partners, my gym buddies, and my roommates!!

Club favorites: Q30 and Panhellenic Council!! Q30 is the student-run TV station on campus and I love being a part of it! I have made so many friends, I’m gaining great experience, and I always know what’s happening on campus because I am an Associate Producer for the Q30 Newscast.

Panhellenic Council is the executive board that helps run all of the Greek Life on campus and this year I am the Vice President of Communications! I get to meet people in all different fraternities and sororities. It’s awesome!

Best study tip: Always check if there are any useful videos, study guides or pre-made quizlets online before you get started. You never know, what you find could save you a lot of time and work!

Best cup of coffee can be found: I call New England “the land of Dunkin’ Donuts” because it feels like there is a Dunkin’ on every corner. BUT the best cup of coffee definitely is Cheshire Coffee.

Favorite discovery on campus/off campus: All of the different views from the Sleeping Giant State Park that is across the street from campus.

Recent google search: “best places to study abroad”

Most used app: Instagram

When I missed my family the most/how I got over it: I miss my family the most when I can’t find anything good to eat in the cafeteria. Kidding! (kind of kidding) I usually call my parents and try to catch up with my brother as often as I can.

Skype or FaceTime: FaceTime for sure!

Last time I did laundry: A week ago? Maybe??

Dorm advice: Be the roommate that you would want to have! Also, don’t be afraid to “go random” for your freshman year! I went random, and my roommates ended up being my best friends!

We’ve covered a whole lot of schools over the past year and have more coming! Stay posted.

Lainey L. {Senior Portrait: Kinnelon, NJ}

Lainey is one of four in her family, the other 3 being brothers. When I met her mom she couldn’t have been more excited to give a photoshoot to Lainey as a gift. And as you would expect from a girl with three brothers she is competitive, athletic, strong willed and a lot of fun. She is my answer to the girls, who I know, follow my Instagram account and think

I’d really love to do that BUT sports is my thing, that’s a little too girly…(although it really does look fun).

To me, that’s putting yourself in a box. Why does being athletic and competitive mean you can’t look pretty and feminine. Why wouldn’t you want to be seen as both? Why do we love the “renaissance” guys? You know the ones who are tough but also show their sensitive side, i.e. a lacrosse player who is artistic. If you want to do something but are concerned what others think then maybe it’s time to take a step out of your comfort zone.

If you need a little more convincing go to the blog post about Johnna. She showed up to her shoot with a black eye after an altercation on the field. Not even kidding!

I started a new feature on Instagram for the next few months. #wordWednesday. They are words that closely identify with both the girls that I photograph and myself personally.  Lainey is up this week. What are your words?

Ali R. {Senior Portraits: Morris County NJ}

Behind my lens I see endless possibilities, light from within, new beginnings and infinite hope. It is such a special time in their lives with Ali being no different. She’s strong and feminine with a giggle that will get you going. I love making these girls feel like they’re the only one in the world and to watch them quite literally  float into the joy of the moment. Take a look…

A win/win gift list.

Senior photoshoot with girls loading truck with holiday gifts

Oops! I woke up yesterday morning, realized it was Thursday and completely forgot to post this blog. ‘Tis the season! Being that it’s December 1st maybe it was serendipity that I’m a day late. Whether I want to face it or not, it’s gifting season. At this time of year I usually post gift suggestions recommended by my Senior Model Reps. This year I’m changing it up a little bit. I’ve listed some of my favorite picks for gifts that I know will appeal to your girls AND the purchase will support efforts against Human Trafficking or help empower women. I have nieces and a daughter in that age range so I’m checking off my list pretty quickly. I love the idea of a gift that’s win:win. I hope you find a few things your favorite teen will love. Stay sane and breathe!
