At Lisasurbannostalgia there is always something new! I have a few projects in the works. You can expect to see glossy colorful paper bead earrings made of antique paper, also chandelier crystals with pictures inside them and enhanced with wire wrapping. The holidays are definitely inspiring. As of this moment I am working on some Halloween bracelets made with vintage images sealed with resin and vintage Halloween postcard pictures in hand soldered pendants, accented with Swarovsky crystals and charms.
Book it in a time that you will be your very best. Some individuals are morning people and some are evening people. A day and time that you could be your best is the time that you should request your photographer for the shoot.
Local photographer Emily Charais of Zollive photography is hosting the shoot at her studio in conjunction with Facebook breastfeeding advocacy group The Good Letdown.
My interest in fashion began subtlety. My mother is a great dresser and more so than anything, she has an unbelievable knack for coordinated accessories. My sister is also one of the best dressers I know. As a young woman, I wanted to dress nice and be presentable. Perhaps, because of my sisters’ influence, my fashion tastes were reasonable compared to boring. It wasn’t until I started working as a professional, my fashion tastes amped up. For example, I couldn’t stand high heels, mostly, because I couldn’t wear them without winching in pain. Knowing I needed to flaunt those torturous, sexy shoes, in order for myself to feel more feminine and in control at work, my love for shoes came about. Now, shoe shopping is my favorite pastime.
Look around the internet for breastfeeding photos you like. what do they all have in common? Time to throw modesty out the window! No covers, no hiding under baggy shirts – time to “whip ’em out” as they say. Button down shirts or a shirt you can comfortable go up over the top is probably your best bet. Go braless or with a bra that has nothing left on top once you unclip the cup. Less busy the pattern on the clothing the better, plain bold colors or bold patterns work best (like polka dots or solid colors). Also, keep jewelry to a minimum because it distracts from the nursing moment.
Rather than simply shooting whatever happens to be there, take a proactive approach to arranging your subjects. Take charge and let the people you are taking pictures of know exactly what you want them to do. When you do this, you will find that your pictures will come out much better than if you just take a picture of whatever happens to be going on.
You will also need a tripod for this, as having a camera handheld with long shutter speeds will make it near impossible to compose a good looking shot, without everything being blurry. I have done long exposures on rests before, such as a bridge overlook, and it worked well. You just have to make sure the camera has minimal movement during the exposure.
