Sabrina's Fashion Shoot https://www.kcpclients.com/blog/2018/7/sabrinas-causal-fashion-shoot Fashion Shoot with Sabrina

Oh to be in my 20's again!! Even though I am still obsessed with fashion and the current trends, my "soon to be 36-years-old with 2 kids" body can't do this style justice.  So, I live vicariously through all my 20 year old models. And can we just take a minute and talk about how amazing it is that fanny packs are FINALLY back in fashion?! The collection I had 20 years ago was freaking incredible, and I'm feeling pretty sad that I got rid of all of them.  

It has been almost 3 years since Sabrina stepped in front of my camera for her Senior Portraits, and she was better than ever! I loved catching up with her and using her to play around with some new lighting techniques. We are getting ready to launch our new Model/Portfolio Building Line this Fall (KCP Portfolios or KCP Models - which one do you like better?) I can't even begin to describe how excited we're getting about it!

Are you a previous KCP Senior? Interested in building a portfolio, or are you working on your IG feed and need some new fresh images?  Contact us and we would love to help you out!!  

Definitely show some love below if you like Sabrina's images, she was an incredible tester and I can't wait to get her in front of my camera again!!

As summer is fast approaching for most, and already here for us Arizonians, it is time to break out the swimsuits and show off your bikini bod! I don't know about you but I need lots of inspiration, encouragement, and a lot of Britney Spears music to get me ready to try on swimsuits. Well, I'm here to help with the first two-- the last step is up to you ;)

NYFW '18 Street Style Guide https://www.kcpclients.com/blog/2018/2/nyfw-18-street-style-guide Screen Shot 2018-02-22 at 2.46.54 PMScreen Shot 2018-02-22 at 2.46.54 PM

Welcome to Part 2 of my NYFW Fall/Winter '18 three part series! Runway fashion serves as inspiration for what we are going to wear for the season, so no you don't have to wear sky high heels and bright yellow eyeshadow. I like to think of runway shows as mood boards for what I am going to wear. Here I am going to break down a few runway outfits from my last post and also show some of my favorite street style looks so check out my last post, "New York Fashion Week: Fall-Winter 2018" and enjoy! 

FROM RUNWAY TO YOUR WAY

Screen Shot 2018-02-20 at 9.54.20 AMScreen Shot 2018-02-20 at 9.54.20 AM

For this ensemble, you have to look at the pieces and fit rather than fabric. This runway look is telling us that pairing a chunky sweater and midi skirt takes a casual winter outfit and makes it look chic. This outfit is super simple to recreate and personally I love pairing a floral midi skirt with a crop sweater (because I was not blessed with lengthy legs of a supermodel and when I wear two pieces that are boxy I end up looking like a shapeless blob) and either booties or a pair of flat white tennies. 

Screen Shot 2018-02-13 at 3.48.09 PMScreen Shot 2018-02-13 at 3.48.09 PM

You may be thinking, if I bought something like this I would 1) spend way too much and 2) wear it once to something important and then never wear it again because everyone already saw me in it; and you'd be right. So for this look pay attention to the colors and the general silhouette. The fit of the dress is classic, and I promise there are cheap versions that match this style, I always check Forever 21 first because let's be real their stuff is cheap and usually pretty fashion forward. Next is the color, this bright mustard color is showing up EVERYWHERE this season so you definitely want to incorporate it into your wardrobe. A sure-fire way to add color into your clothing collection is add it through accent pieces like small purses, jewelry, and sweaters instead of making big buys that will go out of style by next season. 

Screen Shot 2018-02-20 at 9.55.10 AMScreen Shot 2018-02-20 at 9.55.10 AM

This outfit is so simple that it almost needs no explanation. But I will because it's too cute not to talk about. First off, if you're like me and not blessed with legs like skyscrapers, instead of investing in a pair of boot cut trousers, instead stick with your favorite high-waisted jeans and call it a day. Next, take a look at the pattern on the top, it includes classic black and white but also this years go-to trendy color Ultra Violet (check out my blog post on Pantone's Color of the Year: Ultra Violet). This is another hint that this year you should keep it classic but incorporate some bright and fun colors.

unnamedunnamed

Ok, I know what you're thinking... "wut." But don't fear, this runway look is not telling you that in order to be fashionable you have to dress like this model! Let's walk through this look together. Starting from the top is the blush pink baseball cap. This takes a typically masculine style and adds femininity to it, this has been a running theme at this years NYFW, so take your favorite baseball cap or tailored blazer and rock it with feminine flare! 

STREET STYLE

image-3image-3

This look contains so many different trends from the runway and mixes them to form a completely wearable outfit. Also, take any single piece and it will make any plain outfit fashion forward. 

810810

One of my personal favorite street looks from NYFW, this outfit combines classic pieces and puts a modern twist on them. The pants look straight out of a french new wave film but they are made current by pairing them with a killer latex jacket and some rockin shades.

Another, albeit more dramatic, use of the latex jacket as a trench coat paired with red boots and a white purse. This look manages to be both chic and edgy, classic and modern-- but altogether gorgeous! 

image-1image-1

BINGO! This look is probably the easiest to recreate and still super stylish! I'm pretty sure I've found a dupe for every single item in this outfit at either Forever 21 or Zara! Just grab a pair of boyfriend cut jeans, a patterned button down, your favorite pair of sunnies, and a sick coat. You're out the door and looking like a million bucks!

 

Day5_19.w768.h768Day5_19.w768.h768

This last one is another super simple outfit, and if you couldn't tell already, there is definitely a theme with these street looks. All you need this winter is a few staples to mix and match with and you'll have a huge variety of outfits to try out. I suggest buying a few different styles of sweaters (knit, turtleneck, mock turtleneck, etc.), a pair or two of jeans you feel comfortable and confident in, a unique coat that matches everything, and a pair of booties for the ages.

This year's Fall/Winter NYFW has been a whirlwind, but if I could sum it up in just a few words they would be, "Bring back the boyish charm!" This week fashion designers and NYFW attendees alike have embraced the trend of mixing typically feminine ensembles with boyish and billowy silhouettes and accessories, while also bringing back a rocker vibe. Needless to say, I'm ALL FOR IT!!! As NYFW has ended, I am going to be posting a short series on not only runway looks but also celeb looks, street style, and trends to look out for! So flip through all these gorgeous designs and check back in for more FW!

2018 Winter Shoot https://www.kcpclients.com/blog/2018/2/wintersession2018 It's funny that the few Winter Sessions that I have done are some of my favorite session.  Why is it funny you wonder?  BECAUSE I HATE FREAKING SNOW!!  Like I severely hate it!!  After living in Wisconsin for the first 24-years of my life I have truly learned to hate it.  To the point of walking in snow is like nails on a chalk board.  I have no interested in snowboarding, skiing, sledding.  My idea of going skiing is sitting in a cabin by a fire with a hot tottie in my hand. Despite my absolute hate to be in the snow, I will admit... IT IS SO FREAKING PRETTY!!  There is nothing like a picture with snow around it.  So each year, I will suffer for an hour in the snow to be able to walk away with some gorgeous images!   Thank you to two these two incredible girls for driving 5 hours round trip to be outside for only an hour of pictures.  

Now the stuff you really want to know about, the makeup details....

Eyes: Shadow base, painterly by: MAC Cosmetics Jaclyn hill shadow palette by: Morphe Cosmetics.  A must have palette! This palette will allow you to create any makeup look! Anywhere from a soft look to an all glam out look. 

Skin: Foundation studio fix fluid by MAC:  Perfect foundation for light-full coverage. 

Strobe Cream by: MAC cosmetics  The strobe cream is a moisturizer that adds a nice radiant look to any dual skin. Looks lovely just alone or add bronzer to give a lil depth to face structure. 

Cheeks: Refine golden bronzer with dainty mineralized blush both by: MAC cosmetics 

Lip/Lip color: Any long wearing liquid lipstick would do, especially for all the fun that you and your girlfriend will be having while playing in the snow. Lip liquids usually last anywhere from 6-8 hrs. Don’t be that person who has to keep replying lipstick and missing out on all the fun.

Eyeliner:  Brushblack (the jam! quick and simple to use) 

Brows: Brow pencil (for quick brows) also, quick n simple 

Make sure you check out LaBelle Artistry

Pantone Color of the Year 2018: Ultra Violet https://www.kcpclients.com/blog/2018/2/pantone-color-of-the-year-2018-ultra-violet
 

It's getting to be one of the most exciting times of the year and to say I'm excited would be an understatement. New York Fashion Week is rapidly approaching, the Oscars are right around the corner, and the Pantone Color of the Year has been officially announced! The gorgeous color they picked is called "Ultra Violet," and with that kind of name I think Bob Ross would be proud. Last years color of the year showed up all over red carpets, street fashion, and you probably even incorporated it into your wardrobe without realizing. So be ahead of the curve this year and check out some of my favorite ways Ultra Violet has been used already. 

Ultra Violet All Day, Every Day

Make a statement with a plushy, faux fur coat. For some added edge (and just to be a lil extra) pair with some chunky combat boots.

Brightly colored hair is perfect for those of us who tend to stick to the same color palette (aka all black) but still want to have some fun with color.

Love the hat, love the tweed, love the latex boots. It just might be the perfect outfit.

This is an outfit that is absolutely wearable, comfortable, and the splash of color makes the whole thing come together perfectly.

Selena Gomez is a goddess that knows how to keep it simple. The purple skirt adds a little twist to the classic t-shirt, jeans, and tennies. 

After searching through the internet for outfits with Ultra Violet I was completely blown away by the fact that this color is EVERYWHERE! Make sure to grab something in this gorgeous color before all the cute stuff is gone! As always, make sure to follow Katie and I on all our social media, and also comment down below what's your favorite way to style Ultra Violet!

Date Ideas/Gifts for Valentine's Day https://www.kcpclients.com/blog/2018/2/date-ideas/gifts-for-valentines-day Its that time of every again. Valentines Day. A time to be excited to receive and give gifts from a significant other. Or if you’re like me, a time to panic and stress over what to get them. With all the romance in the air, it can get kind of hard to focus on what you should get your bf/gf.

The most important thing to remember about Valentine’s Day is it’s an annually thing, so if not this year, there is always next! But in the meantime, here are some helpful date/gift ideas for Vday.

First off, let’s talk about cute date ideas. If you are looking for a more laid back night, then game/movie night is the perfect date for you. This super low budget date idea not only saves you money, but it also is a great opportunity to enjoy each other’s company. All you need are some comfy clothes, snacks, a great movie, board games, and hey, build a fort while you’re at it!

paintingpainting

Another great date idea is going to a local pottery painting place and showing off your painting skills. This is an awesome way to bring a little fun and light-heartedness to a day that seems to be more serious and romantic. Not to mention your creativity! So go take your date to paint a mug, or a plate, or even a dinosaur riding a skateboard if you're into that sort of thing (seriously, they have everything).

dinnerdinner

Lastly, a great Valentine's Day date night would be going to your bf/gf's favorite restaurant for dinner. I know, I know, dinner on Valentine's Day? So original. Although this cliche date night may be what everyone and their mothers are doing, it nonetheless can be a special and heartfelt moment. So dress up nice (or go in your pajamas, there's no judgement here) go to dinner, have some dessert while you're at it, and enjoy your Valentine's date night. After all, it's not like it's their birthday or something (unless it is, then maybe combine all three of these date nights together for that extra pizzazz). 

 

Personally, when it comes to gifts I am more of a heartfelt kind of girl. I much rather have someone put more thought into a gift than money because the value of the gift shouldn't be about the price tag, but the effort. 

With that being said, we ran a Twitter poll and it seems like a lot of people agree!

Now, here are some gift ideas that will make him/her melt and they also won't break your bank!

mason_jar_ideamason_jar_idea

First we have a super cute and creative way to give your significant other a picture of you two. I would have never imagined putting a picture in a mason jar and filling it up with vegetable oil would be a great idea, but hey, I guess you do learn something new everyday. All you need for this gift is a mason jar, vegetable oil, and a picture big enough to fit. Once all the ingredients are placed in the jar, have some fun decorating the outside with some of your bf/gf's fav things.

This next gift is aimed for the ladies in particular, but if you know your man loves him some flowers, then by all means take this idea into consideration. This gift is simple but still a very cute idea. You'll need picture frame (obviously filled with a cute pic of you two), a box of chocolates, and flowers. This gift is basically the definition of basic Valentine's Day gifts, but hey, it's still an adorable idea amirite? I don't know, maybe it's just something about the Vday vibes, but no matter what kind of season it is, you can never go wrong with flowers, a cute pic, and chocolates!

Last but not least, is a necklace/keychain for your gf/bf with your initials, or both of your initials. This gift is my favorite idea and who wouldn't want to wear the initial of their boo? There are some embroidered key chains and necklaces that defeat the whole purpose of not breaking the bank. Luckily we have a beautiful thing called Amazon. The price range for both these items are anywhere from $10-$30 depending on the material and style. Although this gift can be the most expensive one out of the three, if you are willing to spend the money then I say go for it!

TATIANNA

Hey guys, it's Tati again! I'm writing this, per usual, in pajamas with my hair in a rats nest and desperately wishing I could look as good as Katie manages to make me look in all her pictures. Now if you haven't read the blog before, I've been writing for KCP for almost a year now and I love working for Katie! I post anything from Senior Spotlights to college tips to ramblings about my celebrity crushes (I mean did you see Kit Harrington at the Golden Globes?!). I'm currently attending GCU and working towards my BA in Digital Film with and Emphasis in Screenwriting. My biggest hobby/love is acting, whether it's improv or student films I adore it all! I tend to consider myself a big movie buff (but honestly my fav movies are anything that star Ryan Gosling or Leo DiCaprio)! This year my biggest goals for the blog are to post more about all my favorite things; celebs, fashion, and of course, KCP seniors! I'm super stoked for this new year as we welcome on our new blogger (who is such a sweetie!), add new and exciting content, and connect even more with you guys! Make sure to comment down below, or reach out on social media if you have any posts you want to see, suggestions for the blog, or just want to chat (because let's be honest, I'd much rather be talking to you guys than listening to my professor that looks uncannily like Mr. Feeny from Boy Meets World).

MILAN

Hey guys! My name is Milan Andrade and I am the newest blogger to the team! I am 17-years-old and I am a senior at Perry High School. My favorite hobbies are pretty much what every teenager my age loves to do. Hangout with friends, family, sleep, and eat. But those hobbies only scratch the surface of who I am. On my freetime time I love staying active and writing in my journal. After high school I plan on attending college to study journalism in hopes to one day be in front of the camera broadcasting, or behind the scenes writing. You’re probably wondering what school I am going to for journalism and my answer to that is, I have no clue! I have applied to different schools so I guess we’ll just have to wait and see and let the chips fall where they may. Oh, and one last thing. I have insane Bieber Fever and plan on marrying Justin Bieber in the future. In my eyes, his options are between me or Selena Gomez (my bff who doesn’t know she’s my bff). Some may call this deranged, but I call it optimistic.

Fall Outfits in the Winter https://www.kcpclients.com/blog/2018/1/fall-outfits-in-the-winter Yes, we have to suffer here in Arizona for the summer, like don't sit on anything outside suffer.  BUT IT IS WORTH IT FOR OUR WINTERS!!  It cracks me up that we have to wait until January and February every year to pull out our sweaters and scarves (and sometimes it is still a little too warm to do it).  

Back in October we took 3 of our KCP Senior Squad Models up to Flagstaff for our Fall Outfit shoot, and of course we had to wait to post until we finally hit the temperature where we could actually wear the clothes! 

Where is your favorite place to buy Fall Outfits?  Mine is definite Old Navy, Vici, and Forever 21 (they always have the best sweaters).  Comment below your favorites stores!  We would love to share some different options! 

And now, check out some of the outfits our KCP Senior Squad Models put together!

Milan's Senior Spotlight! https://www.kcpclients.com/blog/2018/1/milans-senior  

Hey guys! Its Milan Andrade! Wow, I honestly cannot believe I'm senior (even though I can pass as a freshman) and that I'm graduating! Time is moving way too fast and it seriously needs to slow down! After all I still just a kid, right? 

I absolutely loved getting my senior pictures taken by Katie. Ever since I was nine-years-old, I knew she would be the perfect person for the job. It all started when Katie was beginning photography and she shot a few pictures of my mom and I for our Christmas card. Here we are 10 years later; me getting ready to graduate and Katie with a very successful photography business. Time sure does fly by when you're having fun!

Enough of the mushy gushy details, it's time to talk fashion!

To start us off, I loved getting my hair and makeup done (partially because I feel like I have no idea what I'm doing when I do my own). I showed the makeup artist and the hairstylist a couple pictures on Pinterest and they nailed it! They both were super fun to be around and talk to!

 

0N8A7034-Edit0N8A7034-Edit

For this first fit, I am wearing a green army jacket from the store everyone knows and loves... Target! As well as some light washed jeans from Hollister and brown boots from Tillys. I love this outfit because it looks like I took the time to get ready, but in all reality I just zipped up a jacket, threw some jeans on, and stepped in some boots! Voila!

 

0N8A7049-Edit0N8A7049-Edit

This outfit is one of my favorites! The skirt is from Tillys and the shirt is from my cousin's closet... literally. I love wearing shirts that are oversized because they are so comfy and you can do so much with them. For example, I could walk around looking like a sack with the shirt down to almost my knees, but instead I tied it up, threw on a skirt, and called it fashion.

 

0N8A7144-Edit0N8A7144-Edit

We all have that one outfit our mom insists on us wearing because it's their favorite. Well, this is the "my mom told me I was dumb if I didn't wear this cute dress" outfit. I got this white off the shoulder dress in the Roxy store at Laguna Beach last year when we went on our annual family trip. The reason I got it was because my mom saw it, told me to try it on (and of course that meant I had to), and she told me that I was going to wear it for my senior pictures. Here we are almost a year later, and just like mothers do, she remembered. 

 

0N8A7180-Edit0N8A7180-Edit

I call this look the "oh crap! I have senior pictures tomorrow and need one more outfit" look. I've always wanted a leather jacket and when I found this one at TJMaxx I knew I couldn't say no. Underneath the jacket, I'm wearing a plain white fitted tank top, which is tucked into my black corduroy skirt that is from Forever 21. Although this outfit was a last minute decision, I couldn't be happier with the outcome!

 

0N8A7228-Edit0N8A7228-Edit

Last but certainly not least is one of my favorite dresses! I bought this dress two days before my shoot at Tillys and I absolutely love it. At first putting it on took a little assistance because there is a string that wraps around my body, but once I got it down I knew this was going to be a must (not to mention it was only $12.50, it's all about the sales baby!) This dress is very flattering and totally out of my comfort zone, but I guess that's how some of the best pieces are, amirite?

A Year in Recap: KCP 2017! https://www.kcpclients.com/blog/2018/1/a-year-in-recap-kcp-2017  

2018-01-04_00012018-01-04_0001

2017 was... well, in a word, CRAZY! Crazy fun, crazy hectic, and crazy busy!!! Every year I set a goal for myself and my business, and 2017 was about photographing as many people as possible. So, my goal was to get 100 Seniors in front of my camera and.... I DID IT! Knowing me, I always had it in the back of my head but never ACTUALLY kept track until the beginning of 2018, when I decided to check and see how close I had gotten. I didn't expect to have made 100, but as I began counting I kept creeping closer and closer to that magic number. Until, I got down to the last few Seniors, and I did it! I photographed exactly 100 Seniors in 2017!! On top of that I also did stylized shoots, family portraits, and even out of state pictures!! I'm looking forward to 2018 being maybe not quite as crazy, but as rewarding and photo filled!! Enjoy the gallery below of my 100 Seniors of 2017! 

-Katie :)

As we welcome in 2018, and leave behind 2017 I love looking back on all the beautiful senior models. This year is going to be full of fresh looks and what better way to start off our first blog post this year with our gorgeous senior model Maya! 

 

0N8A0640-Edit0N8A0640-Edit

0N8A0616-Edit0N8A0616-Edit Okay, can we just take a second to admire Maya? A must-have for senior pictures is confidence to be yourself and to not try to mask your flaws and Maya captures this incredibly.

Q: How would you describe your personal style?

A: "My personal style is a skater and bohemian style, each day I wear one of the two types of outfits."

0N8A0908-Edit-Edit0N8A0908-Edit-Edit Maya has her own sense of style and ways to express herself. With one of her favorite style being bohemian, she captures this look perfectly in this photo with the floral mustard dress/shorts from Macy's. 

"I love the bohemian style so much and wearing clothes that most people won't wear so I chose it!"

 

0N8A0808-Edit0N8A0808-Edit

 

0N8A0813-Edit0N8A0813-Edit

The color combination of Maya's off the shoulder pink dress and brown boots is stunning and flatters her very well.

Q: Who is your style icon?

A: "I'd have to say my style icon is Vanessa Hudgens because her style is just honestly beautiful and she isn't afraid to wear what she likes, she goes out and looks amazing without caring of what other people think of her!"

We are welcoming a new blogger to the KCP family (don't worry though, I'll still be posting all about my efforts, and subsequent failures, to be as perfect as the Kardashians) and will be posting more than ever! Coming later this week we will be introducing our new blogger, Milan, to all y'all with a super fun photo shoot!

Now! Down to business!! NEW YEARS RESOLUTIONS!..... yuck, I know.... BUT Katie, being the genius she is, has put a totally unique and awesome twist on the New Years Resolutions that you usually ditch by February (or if you're like me, you procrastinate a resolution until February 1st and give up by the 2nd). Her twist was inspired by a friend of hers on Facebook who is uber motivational and manages to do more in a week with her resolution than most do in a year. So here it is: each year she picks one word that she wants to model the upcoming year after and apply to as many aspects to her life as possible! And this is exactly what the KCP family has decided to do this year! Here are our One Word Resolutions!

KATIE -- BETTER

2018 for Katie is all about doing, being, and feeling BETTER! Upon hearing her word I was immediately jealous I hadn't picked it myself, but also so inspired by how honest she was! It can be hard to change and grow, but ultimately, you'll always come out the other side a BETTER person (see what I did there???). So follow Katie's lead and be honest with yourself when picking your word, 2018 is your year!

GOALS: 

  • Better business owner
  • Better at separating business from family and being more present for each 
  • Better eating, skincare, and self-care habits
  • Be in a Better financial position

"Basically, in 2018, I want to make choices that will help Better my life in all aspects." -Katie Welter 

MILAN -- POWER

Milan's word for 2018 is more than just having Power, but having the Power to do things for others and herself. Often times we give other people so much power over our lives and allow our power to be chipped away until we feel drained for seemingly no reason. So think hard about how your word could affect all aspects of your life and remember that it's YOUR life, YOUR progress, YOUR word. 

GOALS:

  • Power to remain confident 
  • Power to stay healthy
  • Power to remain myself
  • Power to unapologetically follow my dreams and move towards my goals

TATIANNA -- MORE

Sometimes we get so caught up in the monotony of our daily life that we can forget what we really want. And for me this year is all about working harder, striving towards my goals, and doing MORE! It's ok to ask MORE of yourself and others, have the confidence to be relentless to reach what you want and need. 

GOALS:

  • Learn More
  • Connect with the people I love More
  • Work toward my career More
  • ....workout, eat well, and all that "your body is a temple" stuff More :/ 

"I want to do More this year so that I can grow as a person, a friend, a sibling, a daughter, an actress, and a writer. Whenever I feel like slacking off, I can motivate myself with just one word. More." -me

I hope you found some motivation and inspiration from our One Word Resolutions and make sure to let us know your word either down in the comments below, on either of our Instagram's, or on Katie's Twitter! Now go off into the world, show your power, be better, and do more!

Our Family 2017 https://www.kcpclients.com/blog/2017/12/our-family-2017 The rumors are true! I survived Family Pictures this year (even though it was touch and go for a few minutes there). For those of you who know me well, you know I am a total "throw it together last minute and pray" kind of person. I spend hours helping clients and friends get ready for their photoshoots and then end up completely forgetting about my own. Well not this year!! I spent WEEKS getting ready, all because one night laying in bed I was shopping on my phone and I saw this completely adorable vest on Vici Collection's  website and immediately said to Kyle, "Babe, wouldn't this be so cute for family pictures?!"  I showed Kyle and his response was, "I'm not wearing plaid."  Pondering his thought and weighing it carefully with mine I *politely* responded, "WE ARE DEFINITELY WEARING PLAID FOR FAMILY PICTURES!" And my husband, being the smart man he is, grudgingly agreed. Then I added that shit to my cart and bought it! Thank you once again online shopping.  I said "Kyle, this is going to be so easy and it will be so cute!" Well, as you can see below, it is definitely cute, but easy.... NOT EVEN FREAKING CLOSE!! But lucky for me and the family, through the help of these companies we made it work:  Vici Collection, American Eagle, Old Navy, Children's Place, Gymboree, Target, Charolette Russe, and Charming Charlie and of course, my favorite, Starbucks!! I won't even mention the 10 other stores that 1) didn't have a blue and red plaid or that 2) I had to return because it wasn't the exact right color tone!!! But eventually I got it put together, the last piece (which is Kooper's shirt) was found the afternoon before we left, without it I would have been screwed!!  And of course, we had to drive 2.5 hours to do them, because you can't wear plaid and then stand in front of a cactus without looking ridiculous!  

The slight hiccup with the experience was with the *mild* panic attack I had when we were all dressed and ready and one rogue thought popped into my head, "What if my kids turn into jerks and I look like crap?" Lucky for us Karter had only one little melt down in the middle, when it was Kooper's turn for pictures and not hers, but she recovered with only a hint of "melt down face" in her pictures with me.  

In the end the pictures turned out better than I ever dreamed and there were so many incredible shots to pick from! Now for those of you wondering who did my pictures........ ME! I have my trusty remote in my hand in all of them. As you can see my kids must be used to what they are supposed to do when my camera comes out, because it is sitting on a tripod!! Thank goodness they are my little professional picture babies!  

Now the only problem....  HOW AM I GOING TO TOP THIS NEXT YEAR!?!!??!!

Winter Skin Care Tips https://www.kcpclients.com/blog/2017/10/winter-skin-care-tips As the seasons change our skin takes a real beating, especially after having all the moisture and sun from summer then having to face the wind and dryness of winter. Here are some of my top products and tips for keeping your skin baby soft all winter. 

Screen Shot 2017-10-23 at 3.08.52 PMScreen Shot 2017-10-23 at 3.08.52 PM

VITAMIN E OIL

I absolutely swear by this product and am convinced it can solve any of my problems in life. This is marketed for getting rid of scars and let me tell you, it does much more than that. This magical oil erases stretch marks, helps eyebrows get fuller, and moisturizes like no other. My favorite brand is "Jason Vitamin E Oil" for $8, and the smallest bottle lasts ages. Treat your skin to this great product and thank me later ;)

Screen Shot 2017-10-23 at 3.04.47 PMScreen Shot 2017-10-23 at 3.04.47 PM

How to use: I apply this product every night before I go to bed wherever I feel like I need it. My biggest tip is: a little goes a long way! I put about a dime sized amount on my finger tips and massage it all over my face, into my brows, and on my lashes. Then, I take the left overs and either put it wherever I have stretch marks or any dry spots that have popped up over winter. This product is super goopy and sticky, but don't be afraid! Just because it's oil doesn't mean it will make you oily! You'll wake up feeling so smooth and your skin will surely thank you!

MOISTURIZER

The most important thing to do in winter is combat dryness in every way possible. I by no means have dry skin (in fact I tend to lean more towards the oily side, but winter somehow still manages to suck the life out of my skin. I've tested far too many moisturizers to count, and my favorite even surprised me-- Cetaphil Moisturizer! We tend to assume the higher priced a beauty product is the better it will work, but one day my porcelain skinned roommate told me she used Cetaphil moisturizer you can bet I was at Target buying it the next day. And since then I have not looked back, it's super lightweight, gentle, and best of all cheap! One downside is that it is a little bit oily, but I usually combat this by applying my sunscreen after applying this product, because sunscreen tends to be a little chalky.

Screen Shot 2017-10-23 at 3.05.25 PMScreen Shot 2017-10-23 at 3.05.25 PM

How to use: If you don't wear face makeup then I would suggest to keep applying this all throughout the day, but if you're like me and wears makeup just to run downstairs then this isn't exactly possible for you. I apply this before I use my Vitamin E Oil at night and it's the first thing I put on my face after washing it in the morning. 

TONER

Toner confused me for ages, like I understood it was supposed to be this wonderful thing that got rid of my dark spots and hyper pigmentation, but I had absolutely no idea when or how to use it. For awhile I had completely given up on it and threw it out of my daily routine, but recently I found a product that made me rethink my toner-hating ways. Witch Hazel is an all-natural toner that helps with dark spots, large pores, and even works as a gentle makeup remover! 

Screen Shot 2017-10-23 at 3.05.57 PMScreen Shot 2017-10-23 at 3.05.57 PM

How to use: After washing your face, grab a cotton round, pour some Witch Hazel on it, and wipe all around your face. Although the smell isn't super strong it definitely is different than any product I've put on my face, so I was hesitant to use it as an eye-makeup remover at first. However, I tested it in the name of beauty and can now happily say it is super gentle on your eyes. The only brand I have tried is the cheapest one I could find at Target, which is "Dickinson's Witch Hazel" and a steal at $5 for a bottle roughly the size of a large contact solution bottle. However, I have also heard, but have yet to test, that the "Thayer's" brand witch hazel is amazing and their rose infused toner is great. So there are many different options out there for Witch Hazel lovers.

FACE MASKS

If you ask me, face masks can be overrated, but there are definitely some worth while ones out there. Lately I have been really liking the "Say Yes To..." brand sheet masks, although I'm not entirely sure they do much of what they claim to do. But for my purposes they work just right. I use face masks as a skin booster when I notice it needs a little extra love or looks a bit dull. And the great thing about these masks is that you can use them more than once! I will use it once, fold it back up, stick it back it the packaging (which is still full of the face mask liquid), and zip it up in a baggy. Then you can use the other side next time you need a skin reviver! Another great mask to have in your cabinet is any type of creamy. moisturizing mask. Lately, exfoliating, tingly, and peel off masks have been a huge trend, but in the winter you want something that gives your skin the moisture it needs, not rips and scrubs it away. Unfortunately I don't have the label from my favorite moisturizing mask (I don't know what I'm going to do when it runs out) but I do know it is a papaya and pumpkin mask. These two ingredients are super soothing and my skin feels so soft and plump after I use it. 

Screen Shot 2017-10-23 at 3.06.37 PMScreen Shot 2017-10-23 at 3.06.37 PM

How to use: I apply any cream mask for about 20 minutes, but you can leave them on for various amounts of time because they don't crack or peel. For the "Say Yes To..." sheet masks I usually leave them on for 15-20 minutes and then massage the left over residue into my skin and leave it on over night. 

Even though winter can be dull and gloomy, your skin doesn't have to! These tips are sure to help you have that summer glow all winter long. Enjoy, and let me know your go to winter skin care tips in the comments below!

Fall Fashion Trends https://www.kcpclients.com/blog/2017/10/fall-fashion-trends We're back with fashion tips galore for Arizona's trickiest season of all -- FALL! Switching into a new season can be a bit daunting, just as you've established your summer style you're thrown into the windy fall weather where your summer dresses just don't make sense anymore. Although it's sad to kiss our adorable rompers and warm toned lipsticks goodbye, at least we get to say hello to bold coats and leggings! Here are some of my top tips for navigating falls newest fashion trends. 

Screen Shot 2017-10-23 at 1.56.12 PMScreen Shot 2017-10-23 at 1.56.12 PM

LAYERS, LAYERS, LAYERS

One of the biggest trends this fall is statement coats and plush fabrics. But early fall can be absolutely miserable if you don't prepare correctly. In the morning it's freezing and all you want to do is bundle up with a coat and scarf, but by the end of the day you are drenched in sweat and wishing you'd braved the cold and just worn your fave summer shorts. It's true that this weather is almost impossible to navigate when you're half asleep trying to get ready for school or work, but the tip that I live by in early fall is LAYERS! You can still follow this fashion trend without giving up comfort. I don't know what I'd do without this magical concept, but I can rest easy knowing I can handle the crazy AZ weather.

TIP: Try to stick to light weight sweaters and coats as long as possible, so they're not a hassle to carry around the rest of the day. 

STATEMENT COATS

Like we talked about before, statement coats are super trendy right now and as fall bleeds into winter we can start whipping out our favorite coats. This is definitely one of my favorite trends because it's super easy to style. I usually wear something simple, like all black, and then all I have to do is throw on a coat and I seem like I have my whole life put together. This trend is seriously magical.

TIP: Pick a bold color for your coat, because it's fun and why not?! 

COMFORT IS KEY

Lucky for us this fashion season has proved that comfort is in style! That means sweat suits, baggy sweaters, and yes, even UGGS! This trend is easy enough to follow, wear something comfy and call it fashion-- because it is! 

comfort is keycomfort is key

TIP: Go all out with your makeup when you wear this trend to add a glam twist. If Margot Robbie does it, you should too (that's the motto I live by).

TURTLENECKS 

This is my #1 favorite trend forever and always, give me a high collar and I'm all over it. So you can bet I'm bringing out my victorian collars and turtlenecks as soon as it drops below 80F. Because of the high collar you can get away with throwing your hair up in a messy bun and calling it a day, so this look is super easy to recreate pre-coffee.

COOL WEATHER SUNNIES

Just because it's fall does NOT mean your favorite sunglasses have to go into hibernation, the suns rays will be there even on the coldest days (although it may not feel like it). So keep those eyeballs protected and grab some trendy shades! 

sunniessunnies

TIP: Don't smoke cigarettes, like the girl in this picture-- just because she has good style doesn't mean she makes good life decisions. ;) 

KEEP IT SIMPLE

Last but not least, a great trend this fall is to just keep it simple! Being fashionable does not by any means mean spending loads of cash on designer brands, in fact some of my favorite pieces in my closet I picked up at Goodwill! These outfits show you can easily elevate a simple look like a white t-shirt and jeans and look like a million bucks.

COLLEGE BLOG by katie-292 featuring stainless steel food storage containers

College is in full swing for a lot of us and having been moved in for about a month, I've quickly realized what I absolutely can't live without as a college student. Here's some college essentials for my fellow college goers and even for you high schoolers who desperately want to be in college already. 

ALSO! This is our first interactive blog post! For every picture you are able to click on the item you like and it will automatically take you to the website where you can purchase it! A huge thank you to POLYVORE for making this possible. Let us know what you think!

 

 

 

COLLEGE BLOG water by katie-292 featuring stainless steel food storage containers
 
                                                        
Water, Water, Water! 
Water is my #1 essential, because you won't realize how much you're walking around campus and out in the sun until it's 8:00pm and you're completely drained. The best way to stay healthy, awake, and in tip-top shape is to stay on top of your water consumption! The best way to make sure you are getting enough water is carry a water bottle with you at all times. Make drinking water fun by ordering an adorable bottle and decorating it all over with stickers! 
 
 

 

COLLEGE BLOG shoes by katie-292 featuring slip-on sneakers
                                                       
These slip-ons are made for walking! 
No matter how small your campus is you can be sure you're going to be walking everywhere. Speaking as someone who lives on the 5th floor and takes the stairs every time, you're going to want comfy shoes. Sometimes when you wear comfortable shoes you might assume you have to sacrifice style, but now you don't have to! Click on any shoe you like above and see how easy it is to get cute and comfy shoes!
 
 

 

COLLEGE BLOG laptop & backpack by katie-292 featuring backpack bags
                                                        
The bolder the better! 
In college we all basically live off of our laptops. Whether it's taking notes in class, writing late-night essays, or bingeing on Netflix you're gonna want to keep this precious item safe. Make sure you have a laptop case because you'll most likely be throwing your laptop in your backpack along with pens, pencils, and notebooks. This is a great way to show off your style, so pick a bold backpack and an even bolder laptop case. 
 
 

 

COLLEGE BLOG bike by katie-292 on Polyvore
*scoot scoot* 
Ok, so I have to admit I don't actually follow this tip myself- but only because I am incredibly uncoordinated! But having a bike, penny board, or even scooter can be a total lifesaver! College campuses are big and you don't want to have to worry about being late to that class that is on the complete opposite side of campus from you. So ride in style with one of these adorable speed racers! 
 
 
I hope you all feel a little more prepared for college and can put some of these tips to good use! Make sure to follow Katie and I on our social media accounts and check in on the blog every week for new posts! Have a rockin' week!

Homecoming Fashion: Couple Coordinating https://www.kcpclients.com/blog/2017/9/homecoming-fashion-couple-coordinating Screen Shot 2017-09-06 at 12.31.28 PMScreen Shot 2017-09-06 at 12.31.28 PM

Homecoming is a magical time full of beautiful scenery, amazing music, and jaw dropping dance moves... ok, maybe not so much, but the reason everyone loves homecoming isn't because of the local (and more than slightly lackluster) DJ or the sweaty high school gym. We love it because we get to dress up and feel truly beautiful. So it can feel a little overwhelming when you're trying to coordinate with your significant other, but have no fear! Down below I have a look book of super cute homecoming outfits that will make anyone shout, "COUPLE GOALS!!!"  

 

EMERALD CITY CHIC 

 

                     HOMECOMING BLOG girl green do by katie-292 featuring high heel shoes

 

This look is perfect for a couple that wants to keep it simple and slightly more casual. I would suggest this gorgeous emerald green and black look because it won't be super expensive, but still looks sleek and stunning. For girls, simple accessories with green and gold elevates your ensemble without looking overdone. For boys, you get the easy job because this outfit looks best if you keep it simple with a green shirt and "all black errthang." 

HOMECOMING BLOG Boys do's by katie-292 featuring mens black shoes

 

"NEW" HOLLYWOOD

 

HOMECOMING BLOG "New" Hollywood by katie-292 featuring a strap purse

 

This next couple outfit I have to admit was inspired by La La Land- I'm sorry but "Another Day of Sun" is on constant loop in my head! Anyways, this look is elegant but still has a little bit of edge; I like to call it "New Hollywood." For girls, a short A-line satin dress makes a statement in and of itself but a beautiful icy blue clutch makes it easier to coordinate colors with your beaux. For both boys and girls, accessorize with silver and you'll look like you walked straight off the red carpet.

AZ Homecoming Schedule https://www.kcpclients.com/blog/2017/9/az-homecoming-schedule

Although you might not have noticed, homecoming is fast approaching and we thought we'd help you out by conveniently putting all the dates and times of Homecoming games, carnivals, and dances! If this doesn't convince you to keep reading our blog posts every Tuesday and Thursday, I'm not sure what will. A video of Katie line-dancing in a purple polka-dot tutu? Wait, that's not such a bad idea...  ANYWAYS! Show us some love by following both Katie and I on Instagram, and feel free to comment down below because no one ever does and I pinky promise I will reply to you (because chances are I'm looking through the comments during my Sociology class- aka the most boring class on the face of the planet, except maybe, like, geology or something I guess). 

I hope you all enjoy your homecoming and get to feel like princes and princesses!

College Planning Checklist for High Schoolers https://www.kcpclients.com/blog/2017/8/the-perfect-college-planning-check-list-for-high-schoolers 17855461_1545865025447660_260202731550151684_o17855461_1545865025447660_260202731550151684_o

Now that we are all officially "back-to-school" I started to think about what I was doing this time last year...

CUT TO: Me franticly flipping through college brochures, scholarship applications, and Vogue magazines... c'mon I can't stay focused all the time! Anyways, the beginning of my senior year had me stressing out, and if you're a senior or have ever been a senior, you feel my pain. I was wondering what college I would go to, how many credits I needed to graduate, and don't even get me started on potentially picking a major! But I have created this check-list for all you seniors out there so you can stop stressing and start having an amazing senior year! 

Picking the College for YOU! Screen Shot 2017-08-18 at 9.20.59 PMScreen Shot 2017-08-18 at 9.20.59 PM

The biggest piece of advice I can give when deciding on a college is to pick a college based on what you want, not what your friends, family, or teachers want. Of course the who are important in your life should be allowed to have opinions on where you go to school, but don't solely rely on what others want because when it comes down to it you're the one who will be living there, studying there, and creating a career there.

My decision process went something like this: I started my college search looking at schools in California because of some of my major choices and because I act in my free time. I then started looking at schools in Colorado because two of my siblings live there and most of my extended family lives there. I then started looking in Arizona because of the convenience. After this I finally made my decision. You may be asking, "Wait why didn't you choose California or Colorado," and "How did you choose between all the in-state schools?" Well, first I thought financially- California would be near impossible because it is one of the most expensive states to live in and out of state tuition is sky high. So California was out. Next, I thought about schools in Colorado. I toured Denver University, Regis University, and UC Denver. All of which were great, but I just couldn't imagine myself living there and being happy. Lastly, I looked at in-state schools- University of Arizona, Northern Arizona University, Arizona State University, and Grand Canyon University. UofA and NAU were almost immediately crossed off the list because of both my major and I honestly didn't love the schools. That left ASU and GCU, this was the toughest choice of all. My sister goes to ASU and loves it there, it has the night life of Tempe, the most students of any public university, and a great Honors college. And although this is the perfect school for my sister, it wasn't right for me. Ultimately, I chose GCU because it was the best fit for me, and I couldn't be happier with my choice! So go with your gut and you'll never regret your decision.  Screen Shot 2017-08-18 at 9.19.39 PMScreen Shot 2017-08-18 at 9.19.39 PM

Scholarships, Scholarships, and More Scholarships

Applying for scholarships can be daunting, there are so many out there yet so little information on how to apply for them. Here are a few links to help you with your search: 

FastWeb.com - this site allows you to put in your information and will narrow your search for you!

Scholarships.com - I mean... the name says it all

ScholarshipsandGrants.com - A simple and easy to use data base for both scholarships and grants

Lastly, make sure to ask your guidance counselor for community scholarships, you'd be surprised by how many of your school's and community's scholarships go unapplied for!

 Get Your Teacher Recommendations Early! Screen Shot 2017-08-18 at 9.20.17 PMScreen Shot 2017-08-18 at 9.20.17 PM

Now I don't mean come in on the first day of school asking your English teacher to gush about what an amazing student you are, but don't come in the day before your recommendations are due. I had a friend who did this and let's just say they didn't have the best luck with scholarships... Pick your time wisely, I would suggest right after you just aced a test or turned in a killer report on that super boring book your teacher loves. This will earn you brownie points and your success will be fresh in your teachers head while they write their recommendation. Also, don't just get a recommendation from your favorite teachers. Ask all your teachers for recommendations and pick your favorite because although your choir teacher may love you, they might not give as compelling a recommendation as your AP English Literature teacher. But short doesn't always mean bad, the two recommendations I ended up choosing were completely different. One class I worked extremely hard in and was geared more toward my major and the other I was very talkative, relaxed, and more myself. Recommendations from these two teachers showed both sides to me and worked so well together, and one was only about a paragraph! 

I hope you all take these tips and put them to good use! Happy scholarship hunting!

Perks of Booking in the Fall https://www.kcpclients.com/blog/2017/8/perks-of-booking-in-the-fall

The time has come for Senior Pictures and now is the time to book! Being an alumni of the KCP Senior Squad, I know how stressful senior year can be, and although it may seem easier to push off your photo shoot until Spring I can assure you that this is not the case. There are limited spots for Fall photo shoots and here are just a few of the many reasons to BOOK IN THE FALL... 

  1. It is much easier to book in the fall as opposed to booking in the spring, Katie has more availability in the fall and you have more time to schedule an update session! 
  2. Time! This goes for both Seniors and parents- Senior year goes by fast! With finals, textbook returns, and graduation planning the last thing you want to be thinking about in Spring is your senior photo shoot. The whole point of senior portraits is to capture you at your happiest, and trust me, you won't look happy when you're stressed about your senior project that's due on Monday, returning your Great Gatsby copy to that English teacher you hated Junior year, and trying to finish the year with straight As. Save yourself the stress, and book in the fall. 
  3. Arizona can provide beautifully unique nature shots as we have gorgeous desert scenery, but if you want more than just one backdrop, fall is the only time you will achieve this. Not only can you get those AZ desert shots, but you get greenery, flowers, and most importantly DESTINATION SHOOTS! Katie often calls up a model or two a few times during the fall for destination shoots that are filled with lush greens and bright wild flowers. Believe us when we say that fall shoots are the absolute ONLY time you will be able to have any form of green plants in your shoot.
  4. Lastly, Senior year can be very financially stressful, and Katie's biggest advice to the KCP Squad is to book in the fall because this leaves time for payment plans. It is so easy to forget all the expenses that are packed on at the end of the year from buying caps and gowns to taxes, and booking in the fall leaves time to plan ahead. Personally, booking in the fall my senior year was an absolute life saver, I can't imagine trying to book a spring shoot, find all my outfits, and order my graduation announcements all while my senior year was at its busiest. 

Booking in the fall has so many advantages and as you can see, produces absolutely stunning pictures. Make sure to check in next week for more booking and styling advice for your Senior shoot!

Tips & Tricks for Decorating Your Dorm Room https://www.kcpclients.com/blog/2017/8/tips-tricks-for-decorating-your-dorm-room 0N8A31140N8A3114

College move-in day is approaching us rapidly, and if you're anything like me, the only thing you can think about is how to pack as much style and comfort into a 15x15 room. Now that I'm (almost) done dorm shopping I thought I'd share with you guys my top tips and tricks for making the most of your room! Let's dive right in!

Tips:
Maximize Wall Space:
Although dorm rooms don't leave much room for anything other than a bed and a desk, the best way to make your room seem bigger is to utilize all the wall space you're given. A cheap way to do this is print off posters from online! For my dorm I found a vintage poster website (click here) to mix and match with other art prints I have for my wall. I also picked up some great (and inexpensive) hanging planters at Marshall's that you can hang super easily with CommandHooks! This is another great way to open up your room but not sacrifice precious floor space.

Get Inspired:
I would be an absolute mess if it weren't for Pinterest and YouTube when it comes to dorm decorating. I scoured YouTube for hours upon hours to find the best ways to decorate and was pleasantly surprised to find great DIY decorations (that are actually cute) and fantastic websites with Promo/Coupon codes galore.
A great, in-depth dorm tour video is by CatCreature on YouTube (click here to watch), which is where I got the idea to press flowers into frames as wall decorations. I got these great frames from World Market and picked the flowers on a trip to Colorado. This is a great opportunity to personalize your room and have fun doing it!

Tricks:

Shop Smart:

Whenever I would shop for my dorm I always tried to find coupons or discount codes. The best deals I have found so far have all been online. One of the best apps I downloaded was The Target Cartwheel app, all you have to do is download the app, scan the barcode of anything you want to buy while you're in the store, and it let's you save any coupon available. It also lets you know if there is a better deal and gives you exclusive coupons! Best decision of my life!

Buy Online:

The best way to save money is to BUY ONLINE! This way you can always find the best deals and not have to pick it up yourself! My favorite website for dorm shopping is definitely Society6, they offer free shipping with discount codes (which, trust me, are super easy to find), have a sale legit every other day, and you will definitely find something unique because artists upload new designs every day. Society6 is inexpensive, great quality, and super fast with delivery times. Plus, they sell everything from pillows (like mine shown below) to phone cases, to high-quality prints. Definitely try this site out!

Celeb Street Style -- Lookbook https://www.kcpclients.com/blog/2017/6/celeb-street-style---lookbook Collage_FotorCollage_Fotor

Summer '17 has been packed full of new style trends, and these celebs have been bringing only their best. In my last post I talked about pulling myself out of a style lull, and what helped me was getting inspiration from others. Sometimes trying to search Instagram for ideas can be a bit overwhelming so my go-to trick is searching for my favorite celebs and looking at their street style. Although I don't necessarily take the same fashion risks, I find so much inspiration and can put together entirely new looks from a closet I found bleak and boring before! Here's a look book of some of my favorite looks worn this summer!

"Sleepwear" fashion seems to be making an appearance on and off the runway as Gigi Hadid is seen sporting and emerald green pinstripe "pajama" suit and strappy heels.

IMG_7736 2IMG_7736 2Burbank, CA - Co stars Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone (reuniting after Crazy Stupid Love and Gangster Squad), get busy outside a local movie theater in Burbank for La La Land. The story follows Sebastian (Gosling) and Mia (Stone), who are drawn together by their common desire to do what they love. But as success mounts, they are faced with decisions that begin to fray the fragile fabric of their love affair, and the dreams they worked so hard to maintain in each other threaten to rip them apart. 'Whiplash' director Damien Chazelle wrote the script and is directing the film, with Fred Berger, Gary Gilbert, Jordan Horowitz and Marc Platt producing. Summit will release La La Land in theaters on July 15, 2016.

Technicallyyyyyy this isn't street style but c'mon, La La Land was amazing in every way including the amazing work by Costume Designer Mary Zophres. Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling are dressed in what Gophers describes as, "Retro realistic" and I'm totally on-board.

Last, but not least, Bella Hadid looks killer in camo pants and an off-the-shoulder sheer top. We are all very jealous, Bella. 

 

Hope you found some outfit inspo from these looks- or at least enjoyed all the beautiful people. I'm off to figure out how to recreate every one of them with about $7 in my bank account! See ya soon!

Style Steal- 2017's “It” Girls https://www.kcpclients.com/blog/2017/6/style-steal--2017s-it-girls Hello and welcome back! No I have not run away to a sunny island for the summer wearing only bikinis and channeling my inner Victoria Secret Model, but a girl can dream, right? These past couple of weeks I have faced a style rut of which I couldn’t for the life of me pull myself out of. It felt like writers block but with crop tops and high waisted shorts from two years ago. But recently I have had a resurgence and feel utterly inspired to boost my summer style… with a little help from my favorite celebs.

 

The term “it” girl always made me think of a 16 year old girl on a tween magazine cover with way too many exclamation marks on the cover, or a skinny blonde socialite with fuzzy pink shoes and a pooch that also posed as an accessory. However, the 2017 “It” Girl seems much more accessible, and these are the girls that re-inspired my love for fashion. My biggest piece of advice if you need some fashion inspiration? Type in the name of your favorite celeb and attach “street style” to the end of it. This is a sure fire way to easily see high fashion looks that aren’t only for runway models. Here are some of my favorite 2017 “It” Girls.

 

Lily-Rose Depp

She is style, she is grace, she is Johnny Depp’s daughter-- what more could you ask for? She has already starred in 5 movies, has over 3.1 million followers on Instagram, and is younger than I am. Although when I have to constantly remind myself not to compare when I see her, I like to pretend that wearing a similar style will make up for all the differences right? Right?? Anyways, as a Chanel ambassador it is inevitably true that this girl has style, and here is a super easy look to recreate.

It doesn’t get any simpler than this, but it is the accessories that make the difference here, oversized sunglasses are a huge trend this summer so of course Lily has a pair dangling in view with her outfit. She wears a simple, black, fitted romper but this could easily be traded for a black cami and black shorts. Another popular trend is white tennis shoes with absolutely everything (flash back to J. Anniston in Friends much?) and Lily changes it up a bit by pairing her dainty outfit with large high top sneakers. Lastly, she finishes off the outfit with a tiny gold necklace and black and gold belt to tie the outfit together. This outfit is so easily recreated and effortlessly fashion forward.

 

Bella Hadid

Another “It” Girl I have been loving is Bella Hadid. From stalking her Instagram, to scouring Snapchat magazines for her daily, I think you can say I’m obsessed. However, I chalk it up to research in the name of fashion and that’s good enough for me! It’s no secret fashion designers love her, in every paparazzi pic she is wearing only the best brands and eternally looks like she is stepping onto the runway. Don’t be intimidated though, here is a Hadid outfit that is super simple yet chic.

 

If you’re like me and would rather not wear stilettos to dinner but still want to look super cute I would swap out the heels for my favorite white tennis shoes and opt for red lipstick to look more polished. Either way, simple skinnies and a t-shirt is an outfit I can wrap my head around (and my wallet).

 

Selena Gomez

Lastly, a girl that I have always looked up to when it comes to fashion, Selena Gomez. She’s been an “It” Girl for years now and her style is super easily recreated. Holding the record for most Instagram followers and never disappointing with her summer hits, Selena Gomez’s style is nothing if not versatile and accessible. Here’s a look to love and recreate this summer.

Although it is highly unlikely I will ever be able to afford an item from Alexa Chung’s new fashion line (the top retails at $370) this outfit is so trendy yet so simple. High-waisted denim jeans paired with a cropped tank and cross body bag, throw in a pair of Aviators and orange sandals? This may just be the perfect summer outfit. Swap out the almost $400 crop top with a $10 Forever 21 tank and this outfit is as good as yours. It’s a win for me.

Although fashion may be intimidating, always know that you have options and whatever makes you feel best is usually the way to go.

Make sure to tell me what you think in the comment section below or follow me on any of social media accounts (links below). I promise I won’t take such a long break next time! If you liked this post make sure to check in later this week for a summer look book, which will probably include more styles from the “It” Girls above!

Blake Tibbetts (left) and Ryan Kelley (right) are some of our favorite models to shoot because not only are they incredibly talented athletes, but they have impeccable style and are great in front of the camera. To celebrate graduation coming up and these two heading off to college we put together a compilation of some of our fav pics of Ryan and an interview with Blake... enjoy!

20170426-0N8A9648-Edit20170426-0N8A9648-Edit Life of a Teenage Athlete: 

To be a sports star today you have to have more than a good physique and winning smile, you also have to have a likability to you, and this is exactly what Blake has. In order to embody the “sports star of today” you need style, personality, and a social media following- and this inspires athletes like Blake who is, “Inspired by all the athletes I follow on social media and see the clothes they are wearing.” Social media opens up a new, much smaller world, between the athlete and aspiring athlete. Blake describes his personal style as, “Sporty and casual” and his typical outfit consists of joggers paired with a simple tee. Blake describes his best technique for motivating himself as perseverance, he also credits his longtime girlfriend, and fellow KCP Senior Squad Model, Morgan Nasby as a huge motivator. As for his passions? He is most passionate about eating right and working out, he is always trying to improve his body in the best, most efficient ways possible. When it comes to style he remains versatile but always keeps comfort in mind due to his busy schedule. As he moves on to college he will be attending Arizona State University and majoring in Finance with a minor in marketing. Although he will not be continuing his football career on a collegiate level he will take the many things he has learned as a teenage athlete and carry them with him throughout his life. 

20170426-0N8A9602-Edit20170426-0N8A9602-Edit Congratulations to both Blake and Ryan on their great accomplishments as high school athletes and we wish you all the luck in the world as you move onto college.

How the heck are Katie and I supposed to say goodbye to all the amazing KCP Senior Squad members of 2017?! Luckily for us, every year new KCP Seniors join us and help us remember that although we will miss the year before, there are always beautiful seniors to help fill the void. Be sure to check out our previous blog post on the KCP Senior Squad of 2018! Now I'm off to frantically plan everything I have to do in the 6 days (yes! I said 6!!!!) I have left of high school! Thanks for reading!

Makeup Monday: Highlighter https://www.kcpclients.com/blog/2017/5/makeup-monday-all-your-highlighter-questions-answered 20170419-0N8A8650-Edit20170419-0N8A8650-Edit

There I am again. Sitting on the bathroom floor wondering how the Kardashians can look so great with highlighter but I look like a 5 year old girl that got a glittery makeup kit for Christmas when I try using it. Questions run through my head like, "How did I get here?" and "What did I do to deserve this?" I am faced again with the seemingly eternal problem of never having any ounce of an idea on how to "beat my face" or get the enviable "glow" that highlighter has earned its name after. Luckily for you (and me) never again will any of us have to walk past the highlighter aisle in Sephora and run away in fear (this may be an exaggeration... but you get what I mean). Premier Makeup Artist Trish of Labelle Artistry is here to save the day and teach us the ins and outs of obtaining the perfect highlight!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Steps for the Perfect Highlight: 

1) Products - Trish swears by MAC Cosmetics so it's no surprise that is exclusively what she used to achieve this look. The highlighter she chose was Extra Dimension Skin Finish ($33) and she applied it using the 184 Duo Fibre Fan Brush ($25), of course any drug store highlighter and fan brush will work just fine in a crunch. 

2) Picking Shades - You want to pick a color that suits you best and will complement your skin tone. This can sometimes sound easier said than done, but a good trick is to match your highlighter to your blush and this will create a more cohesive look, "For Alexis I went with a highlighter that was more pink and peachy since I used a peach color blush on her cheeks." 

3) Prep! - The prep work is absolutely crucial and Trish's first tip is to assess what you have to work with, "If you have normal or dry skin you want to first gently spray your brush with a setting spray, I swear by MACs Prep and Prime Fix+ ($24). If you have oily skin you can skip the setting spray because the moisture your skin provides will help the application." That's right ladies! Our oil can actually come in handy for once! 

4) Application - When applying your highlighter you want to wait until all your makeup is finished. Then the highlighter should be placed above the cheekbone on the highest point, "Highlighter should serve as your 'last accessory'" says Trish. So treat it as such, use it sparingly and strategically. Highlighter should be applied where light would naturally hit your face- bridge and tip of the nose, high points of the cheekbones, the temples, cupid's bow, brow bone, and the high point of the chin. 

5) Perfection! - Spritz yourself with a bit of setting spray and you're off to the races! Now go show off that highlight and blind everyone with the gloriousness of "the glow"! 

Now that we can all consider ourselves "Highlighter Experts" a special thanks to the amazingly talented Trish, because let's face it, without her we would still be sat alone in our bathrooms with an unopened highlighter gathering dust. Now I am off to show off my new found ability to apply makeup without looking like a toddler and feeling much more supermodel-esque. Make sure to check back every Monday for more tips and tricks from our new series "Makeup Mondays"!

The Look: Flower Crowns + DIY https://www.kcpclients.com/blog/2017/4/the-look-flower-crowns 20170405-0N8A6934-Edit20170405-0N8A6934-Edit

With the second weekend of Coachella upon us, all of us are feeling a little more adventurous with our style choices. Whether you are soaking up the sun and listening to all your favorite artists at Coachella, or, like me, enjoying the perfect spring weather and living vicariously through friends on Snapchat, you can amp up your weekend look with this trending accessory.... FLOWER CROWNS! 

20170405-0N8A6962-Edit20170405-0N8A6962-Edit

Flower crowns are the perfect spring accessory; they add a pop of color to a simple outfit, work as an attention grabber, and (get this) can be made at home! 

Here's how to do it! 

Supplies: 

  • flower wire 
  • floral tape
  • floral wire cutters
  • flowers of your choice and greenery to add lushness!

STEP 1: Take your FLOWER WIRE and make a circle, measure it around your head and fit it to however tight/loose you want it (I like to do a double loop so it rests more comfortably on my head). 

STEP 2: Use the WIRE CUTTERS to cut the flower wire and close off the circle with FLORAL TAPE (wrap the tape around multiple times to ensure a long lasting hold). 

STEP 3: If you are including GREENERY and/or very small flowers you'll want to lay these on first. Place them evenly around the crown and once you have the perfect placement tape them all down with the FLORAL TAPE. 

STEP 4: Now it's time to add the FLOWERS! To attach the flowers make sure the stems are at least 2-3 inches long. Place flowers evenly apart among the greenery, then use the FLORAL TAPE to tape down the stems. You'll want to wrap these multiple times (like you did with the wire circle in STEP 2) to make sure you don't have any rogue flowers! 

STEP 5: Pop this puppy on because you're done and ready to hit that music festival! 

20170405-0N8A6957-Edit20170405-0N8A6957-Edit

There you have it, the perfect flower crown that is completely customizable to fit any occasion! Make sure to send us pictures of the crowns you made by tagging Cadwallader photography or #cadwalladerflowercrown ! Let us know if you have any tips for making these crowns even better! And, of course, thank you to our gorgeous model Mackenzie Butler! This is me signing off, time to go flood myself in spring flowers and floral tape. Enjoy your weekend and if you're at Coachella, know everyone here at Cadwallader Photography will be enviously watching your Snapchat stories all weekend!

Graduation Day: Capturing Your Style https://www.kcpclients.com/blog/2017/4/graduation-day-outfits The time is near. Announcements are being ordered, parties are being planned, and at this point, no homework is being done. This may be a bittersweet time, but of course, we send our models out with a little bit of glam ;) So send your love and say your goodbyes to the beautiful, wonderful, and absolutely stunning... Class of '17 Senior Squad. 

20170406-0N8A7000-Edit20170406-0N8A7000-Edit

When you are young every adult, from your mom and dad to that weird Aunt Deb (that you're still not 100% sure if she's actually related to you or not), tells you to savor every moment and cherish every friendship. Yet, somehow, we are still leaving high school wishing we had spent just a few minutes longer singing at the top of our lungs to our favorite song, or taken one more long drive with a best friend. But the amazing thing about this time, is that we know we have so much more life to live, so many more adventures to embark on, and so many more memories to make...and so all graduation does, is help us take these last six weeks and make the most of them. 

Now I could go on and on about sappy details of the "best years of our lives" and the "unforgettable memories" but there are far more pressing matters that are on every senior's mind right now... "What on Earth am I going to wear to graduation?!" Never fear, for we have done all the hard work for you, and got some help from our Class of '17 Seniors one last time. 

20170404-0N8A6752-Edit20170404-0N8A6752-Edit

Our first look is modeled with Perry's maroon cap and gown. This color can seem a little tricky to match with both outfit and makeup wise, but here's a few tips:

Creating Depth and Texture: The worst thing to do for graduation is to match the color of your outfit exactly with your cap and gown. The model above chose instead to wear a white skater dress with a brighter red as an accent. This helps create dimension as well as add texture. She created even more contrast with her jewelry choice of an emerald green statement ring. This goes to show that a simple outfit doesn't always mean boring! 

20170404-0N8A6735-Edit20170404-0N8A6735-Edit

This next look incorporates a few different styles flawlessly to create a classy and modern graduation outfit. Here's how to recreate it: 

Cut and Style: The key to achieving this look is its use of differing cuts. We tend to want to stick to one cut for every part of our outfit, but this can make the outfit either look a bit frumpy or too simple. This model chose to incorporate a semi-loose top with extremely flowy and frilly sleeves with a tight fitted jean skirt. Not only does this create depth and texture, but it also accentuates her natural shape. It crops up and tightens at the waist, shows off her slim legs, and pulls attention to her neck and face. She then adds the finishing touches with a simple, thin brown belt and long gold necklace. This outfit is perfect for any color cap and gown and will definitely attract the right kind of attention!

20170403-0N8A6696-Edit20170403-0N8A6696-Edit

Our last model chose to take a different route for her outfit. Many girls want to go casual for the big day but aren't exactly sure how to go about it. Going casual doesn't mean you will look undone, but it can show off your natural beauty and of course the comfort factor is a major plus! Here's how to make casual work for you:

Polish and Shine: The key to dressing casual is the polish of the whole ensemble. The model above wears a crisp white shirt with a black lace bralette peaking through, a pair of pristine blue jeans, and a simple gold bracelet. However, you can't stop there if you want to elevate your casual outfit to a polished graduation outfit. The model shapes her face with soft, classic curls and uses a light hand on her makeup. Overall, her skin is dewy, hair is soft, and outfit is crisp and clean-cut. Her choice to go casual only adds to her natural beauty and stunning shine! 

Get ready seniors, because we are closing in on the big day and with these tips you can have a flawless graduation day outfit! Just don't forget to pack plenty of Kleenex and waterproof mascara. 

I wish you all the luck in the world and enjoy these last few weeks at the schools you spent four years dreading getting up every morning and driving to. ;)

Senior Spotlight + Beauty Tips - Brianna https://www.kcpclients.com/blog/2017/3/senior-spotlight---brianna-bonus-beauty-tips I’m back and ready for action! Spring break so far has been filled with some drop-dead gorgeous girls and our Senior Spotlight Model this week is no different. She was exactly what I hope for when meeting a new model- which is, of course, beautiful! But I absolutely love when a KCP model goes above and beyond with their outfits. It can seem so intimidating staring into your closet before a shoot and trying to pick out just a few outfits that represent you. That’s why I say, don’t! Bring in anything and everything you like! So you can imagine how happy I was when Brianna brought in piles of jewelry and heaps of clothes. This made for some spectacular pictures of our Senior Spotlight Model - Brianna!

20170307-0N8A3795-Edit20170307-0N8A3795-Edit

Q: What clothing store do you shop at most often?

A: TJ Maxx for sure. Twelve dollars for a super cute top, are you kidding?

 

Q: How would you describe your personal style?

A: Business Casual. And I’m huge on rings and bracelets, I have a go-to set that I wear everyday.

 

Q: Who is your style icon?

A: Stacey Morgan now!

(I’m telling you, Stacey is a wizard!)

I don’t know about you, but I am constantly in a state of wonder when I see girls with perfectly made-up hair everyday. Brianna of course has lovely long locks and our hair stylist for the shoot was able to speed through all that hair and make every style look effortless. Allison has some tips and tricks for us girls that need a little help in the hair department.

Q: What is your favorite styling tool?

A: My curling iron by Hot Tools.

 

Q: Bobby Pins or Hair Ties?

A: Do I have to choose?! Ok… probably bobby pins, they’re more versatile.

 

Q: I’m gonna set-up a little scenario (not at all based off of me 90% of the time). You’re on 3 day old unwashed hair, you’re about to run out the door but still want to look cute, what’s your go to style?

A: Braid or half-up, they’re both super simple but show effort. Plus, they cover up the grease!

I love makeup and am always scouring YouTube looking for new looks to try out, but who better to ask about my burning make-up questions than a real-life makeup artist? Trust me, when you meet one you feel as if you’re in a room with a unicorn that has perfect eyeliner all the time.

Q: What tips do you have for girls with brown eyes when applying eye makeup?

A: To make brown eyes pop you always want to go with colors that will complement them. I usually go for anything with either gold or purple undertones - maybe even auburn. Anything to bring more attention to the eyes.

 

Q: What’s your favorite makeup brand?

A: MAC! Of course!

 

Q: I’m gonna throw out another scenario (again, this never happens to me, because I roll out of bed with eyeshadow and bronzer all perfectly blended! Ok maybe not, but a girl can dream). It’s a Monday morning and you’re wearing a white v-neck, jeans, and tennis shoes. What do you do, makeup wise, to elevate your look?

A: Can the shirt be black?! I usually go super dramatic if my outfit is going to be plain. Dark eyes, lashes, and shimmer to amp it up.

Fresh Faces of KCP Senior Squad '18 https://www.kcpclients.com/blog/2017/3/fresh-faces-of-kcp-senior-squad-18 The new year for Senior Squad Models is coming on fast and Katie and I couldn’t be more excited! To kick off spring break we have made our FIRST ROUND of acceptances to the 2017 Senior Squad. We are so stoked to welcome our first four SS Models and want to share the love, so say congrats to the very first members of KCP Senior Squad ‘18!

Our first model is no stranger to Katie’s camera, Brady Yamamoto is a student at Basha High, elite gymnast, and officially the first member of the 2018 Senior Squad! On top of being an amazing gymnast, Brady now gets to flex his modeling muscles on the Senior Squad. Keep an eye out for Brady this coming year!

Last years Senior Squad group started with over 100 applications and 21 models on the senior squad. Walking into the conference room today started with Katie frantically saying, “I'm so nervous, why can't this be over Snapchat?! Plus, my favorite shoes just broke!” Luckily we were saved soon by the Senior Model Applicants walking in. First impression? Gorgeous. Gorgeous. And, yeah you guessed it - Gorgeous. Getting started I was stuffing my face with chocolate and Katie was already apologizing for her public speaking abilities (but c’mon, Katie could make friends with a plastic bag).

Something new Katie has incorporated (which is purely due to her impatience when she sees a gorgeous face) is holding a shoot right after the meeting for the Seniors that sign their KCP contract day of. So say congrats to the first round of our new 2018 Senior Squad Models!

Macie Mann immediately draws attention with her unique style and flowing blonde hair. To the shoot she wore a white, lace dress from Forever 21 and a pair of cowboy boots straight out of Nashville (and her mom's closet)! If you know Macie you know that she is an avid singer and performer and always up to get in front of a crowd. So it is obvious that when asked what she is most passionate about she replied without hesitation, "Music!" So get ready for some music themed shoots coming from this country girl. Macie is most excited about the stylized shoots this coming year, and we sure are looking forward to seeing her charm shine through.

Ashley Bellows walked into the meeting and quickly filled the room with her energetic personality and positive energy. After meeting Katie, Ashley described how she, "loved her energy and positivity! She makes me so excited to start!" which Katie immediately responded with, "Yeah! 'Energy!'" Along with a super bubbly personality, Ashley is most passionate about track and field, which she just recently began but has enjoyed every minute of. She describes her style as "a little bit of everything" and usually consists of a casual outfit of jeans and a basic tee, but she loves the occasional fall colored dress. We are so excited to see what Ashley will do this upcoming year as a KCP Senior!

Arvrissa Williams is just as comfortable in front of the camera as she is on the basketball court. The first thing you think when you see Arvrissa is: stunning! She describes her style as sporty and there is no hiding her ability to put together a trendy outfit! She is absolutely obsessed with shoes (her mom described her a "shoe fanatic") and uses them as the focal point for most of her outfits. Arvrissa is most excited for her own personal Senior Photoshoot as a KCP Senior, to which her mom quickly replied, "She means it being all about her!" Katie and I are looking forward to Arvrissa's mix of sporty and dressy outfits and of course that gorgeous smile!

What To Wear!! https://www.kcpclients.com/blog/2017/1/what-to-wear "I have no idea what to wear!!!"   This is the #1 thing I hear at the start of every Senior Portrait Experience.  So, lets start to break down how to decide and to help, here are some tips to help you look the best and be the most comfortable during your session!!  


#1:  Now is NOT the time to try something new!  Dress to suit you and your personality.  If you are not comfortable in your outfits, you won't be comfortable in your portraits.  Whether your style is edgy, country chic, fashion forward, or just down-right comfy, stay true to yourself, while dressing to look your best.  

#2:  TRY ON ALL YOUR OUTFITS THE NIGHT BEFORE!!  Believe me when I tell you, nothing will put a damper on your Senior Portraits then putting on one of your outfits only to realize it is too short, see through, or doesn't fit the way you want or remember.  So put your entire outfit on prior to your session (including accessories, shoes, undergarments and jewelry).  Then, pack them up neatly so nothing wrinkles and you don't forget anything.  

#3:  Packing up for your session tips:  Pack everything in a piece of luggage, keeping everything folded neatly.  If it wrinkles easily, keep it on a hanger. Put all your accessories for each outfit in a ziplock bag, then you can keep each outfit's accessories organized and separated.   Try keeping the entire outfit and accessories together while packing, so you don't forget anything during the photoshoot and everything is easy to find.  

#4:  Remember, your nails and hair are an accessory that day, so make sure your roots and nails (toes included if you have any open toe shoes) are the way you want!

#5:  Outfit Tip for the ladies:  Make sure some part of your outfit is fitted.  I know we all love those flowy dresses, but they are not always the most flattering in a portrait.  If you are remotely self-conscious make sure some part of your outfit is fitted, ie: jeans, top or use a belt to show you figure.  

#6: I can't say this enough:  ACCESSORIES, ACCESSORIES, ACCESSORIES!!  You might not wear them daily, but when you are putting your outfit together think about how you can model that outfit.  Seriously, stand in front of the mirror and try doing 10 different poses changing up your hands?  Hats, scarves, jackets, bracelets, necklaces, rings, earrings, head pieces, jeans/shorts with pockets!  Try and have 1 or 2 of those in each outfit.  Sports equipments, animals, cars, just to name some ideas for other accessories you can include in your portrait.  These help show your personality and will definitely help you feel more comfortable in posing.  

Now check out some of the incredible outfits that we have seen for Class of 2017 thus far!!

Morgan - Class of 2017 Basha High School Senior https://www.kcpclients.com/blog/2016/9/morgan---class-of-2017-basha-high-school-senior Meet Morgan, one of my Class of 2017 Senior Squad Models!!  This amazing lady is graduating in December from Basha High School.  I loved photographing this girl, all 3 times.  I decided last minute I wanted to go up to Flagstaff to do Senior Portraits in wild flowers. I was lucky enough to have 2 of my models be able to drop everything last minute and head to Flagstaff 3 days later.  

Morgan is a dream to photograph, it helps that her momma loves to take pictures too, so I think she is used to being in front of a camera.  Lets just say NATURAL!!  Her outfits were perfect for all 3 photo-shoots.  And thanks to Makeup-Lounge AZ, LaBelle Artistry and Styled by Hayley she looked amazing every time.  

Here are some of my favorites from her sessions!  I can't wait to see what this girl does in her life.   2016-09-15_00022016-09-15_0002 2016-09-15_00012016-09-15_0001 2016-09-15_00032016-09-15_0003 2016-09-15_00052016-09-15_0005 2016-09-15_00062016-09-15_0006 2016-09-15_00042016-09-15_0004 2016-09-15_00072016-09-15_0007 2016-09-15_00082016-09-15_0008 2016-09-15_00092016-09-15_0009 2016-09-15_00102016-09-15_0010

Separating Business and Family https://www.kcpclients.com/blog/2016/6/separatingbuinessandfamily I can't believe how much my business has grown in the last 2 years.  In 2013 I photographed 10 Seniors, 2014 I photographed 23 seniors, 2015 I photographed 57 seniors, and this year I hit 89 2016 seniors, in addition to other sessions!!  SERIOUSLY WHAT!!  I can't believe it.   And my goal is set even higher for Class of 2017 (100 to be exact).  I am loving every single second of this.  BUT, as my business is growing so is my family.  Having my own business is a blessing and a curse at the same time.  I love hearing "It would be so nice to make my own hours" on a regular basis.  And it is, but here is the problem..  My hours do not seem to shut off.  When you leave work at 5 pm, you log off your computer, and go home to your family (well most of you), but I don't.  My email is going off all hours of the day and night.  I can't help myself but answer it, so if you email me at 9, you usually having a response by 9:05.  I don't ever want my clients to wait for me to respond.  That is slowly (well fastly) becoming a problem.  I am always on my phone, always working.  While I love being available to everyone all the time, my kids are not enjoying it so much.  

This morning I was emailing back and forth with someone and Kooper said "Momma, come look at this, hurry."  I was so busy I said "Hold on Kooper, momma is working real quick.  His response made me stop in my tracks "Momma, but you are always working."  Wow, my 3-year-old realizes that I am always on my phone.  Well that has got to stop. Starting today, I am designing a new work-flow for when I am at home.  I am going to set aside specific times of the day to take a break from being a mom to being a business owner.  When I am in my busy season, that is easy because I head to the office every afternoon, but in my slow-season I tend to work from home more than studio.  It is my hope that this helps everyone.  It is not fair to you that I am preoccupied with a one-year-old attached to my leg while I am emailing you.  I want to be able to give everyone 100% off my attention and that is what is going to happen!

Now this is going to be a work in progress, so please bare with me as I make this transition into a new work/home life balance.  

I have to keep reminding myself "My kids are important and I can't be with them and you at the same time, all the time."

Here's To Making 2016 Amazing! https://www.kcpclients.com/blog/2016/1/making-2016-amazing So, have you started your New Years Resolution?  No? Come on we are 2 week in! Well, don't feel bad, I haven't either ha ha, but hey, we have all year right ;)

I can't even decide what I want my New Years Resolution to be yet!  All I know, is I am going to make 2016 amazing!!  This year I am not going to procrastinate (which I obviously am failing at already since my NYE post is 2 weeks late), I am going to get organized (those of you who have been to my studio are laughing right now, I know), and I am going to try not to not wear yoga pants 4-5 days I am working, which is going to be really hard cuz they are soooo much more comfortable then real clothes).  Oh and I am going to blog more of my gorgeous seniors!!  

So kicking of the year, here is my first blog of 2016!!  

Thank you to these gorgeous ladies below ↓ for getting all dolled up in your gorgeous dressed on a freezing (well Arizona freezing) cold day and coming to hang out with me!  This was my first New Years Eve shoot and definitely not my last (I am already planning this years)!  

Happy 2016 Everyone, Lets Make It Awesome!!

Canyon Lake Shoot https://www.kcpclients.com/blog/2015/7/canyon-lake-shoot What do you do when the weather forecasts over 110 for the next month?  Well, I personally found 4 models and took them to the lake for some pictures!!   

Class of 2016, it is time to start thinking about how you want your Senior Portraits to look!!  One of my favorite places to do pictures is in water, but I am telling you now you do not want me throwing you in the water for your session past October (Ask Dree Henry, it gets a little chilly!).  So you need to book now! My calendar will fill up fast in August and September, so don't wait to book!  DO NOT FORGET ABOUT YOUR FREE SESSION IF YOU DO PICTURES BY OCTOBER!!  It give you the opportunity to get everything you want, amazing water pictures and pictures at the end of the year!! 

So contact me at katie@cadwalladerphotography.com or 480-789-1165 to schedule your 2016 Senior Portraits soon!

Anyway, check out a few images from yesterday shoot up at Canyon Lake!

Stylized Boho Session https://www.kcpclients.com/blog/2015/6/stylized-boho-session This photo shoot is something I have been planning in my head for months, and something I didn't know if I would get accomplished this year.  I had a vision in my head of what I wanted it to look like, but I had no idea what I wanted or wear to start.  Then this year my friend Molly had her gorgeous horse Tyra shipped here from Wisconsin and then it when all the pieces to this puzzled started to fit.   

I knew I wanted 3 gorgeous girls that had completely different traits for this session, but that is not always easy to find.  But, they were right in front of me.  Two of my #seniorsquadmodels (Alyssa and Sabryn) and one of my gorgeous previous clients (Kailey) were the perfect girls for this session.  I knew the moment I photographed them the first time that they needed to be apart of this session and was thrilled when they were just as excited about this session as I was.  

So the planning began!  I got the gorgeous models, the horse and with the horse came the perfect location, Tyler Farms, LLC.  The owner Scott was amazing for letting me come on to his farm and do this session.  

Of course every amazing photo shoot needs amazing Hair and Makeup, right?!?  Hayley Drummond  couldn't have done a more perfect job on hair and Madisson Gumm rocked out perfect makeup for Alyssa!  

Then the real fun started!  Asking these gorgeous models suffer in 114 degrees in the middle of a farm and look amazing (of course after getting a warning of rattle snakes, and other fun desert creatures).  Well they freaking ROCKED it, and no one complained (well except Jared, but we are used to that, haha).  They did everything I asked while rotating in and out of the car to cool off in the air conditioning!  

Once again, thank you so much for everyone involved in this amazing session! I couldn't be more excited and happy with the results!

Brynn Ellis - Class of 2015 https://www.kcpclients.com/blog/2015/3/brynn-ellis---class-of-2015 I LOVE DESTINATION SENIORS!!  I mean who doesn't want to spend a weekend and travel to a fun destination to have an amazing modeling session for your Senior Portraits!!  Talk about a memory!  

Well that is exactly what Brynn and I did for her Senior Portraits!  We met in Newport Beach, California a couple weeks ago!  I was so excited when they called and asked if it was an option (note to every senior - YES I WILL ALWAYS TRAVEL!).  I got a little worried coming into the weekend because forecast said rain, but we did not get 1 drop and it was gorgeous out!  

Brynn's hair and makeup was amazing, loved her outfits and seriously, could you have a better location!!  I had so much fun doing these and as you can see, so did she!!  

Just another quick note, if you want your pictures done anywhere near water, plan on me having you get in the water - even if it is cold :) 

Check out Brynn's Epic Senior Session below!

Luke Gumm - Class of 2015 https://www.kcpclients.com/blog/2015/3/luke-gumm---class-of-2015 Luke is one of those seniors that is so much more than one of my Senior Squad Models!  He is my yard guy, house sitter, baby sitter (yes I trusted him with Koop), neighbor, close friend, and such a special guy in my life (I have even talked him in to going on a date night with me!).  Luke's mom is one of my close friends and it is crazy to think that he is graduating and probably moving away (oh no, who is gonna mow my lawn and move heavy objects for me).  I loved watching Luke grow up this year.  Kooper and I spent many Friday nights watch Luke play football this Fall and of course, he sees me about as much as he sees the rest of his family :) 

I am so proud of you Luke! I cannot wait to see what kind of a man you are gonna be and I am honored to be able to do your senior pictures.  Whatever you do Luke, make sure us Welter's are always on your list of people to visit and call!!  

Love you Mr. Gumm!  Okay, enough sappiness!  Check out a few of Luke's Senior Portraits below!!

Dree Henry - Update Session https://www.kcpclients.com/blog/2015/3/dree-henry---update-session One bonus to being an amazing Senior Squad Model and referring your friends, you get an Update Session at the end of your Senior Year!!  

Dree and I have come to the conclusion that everytime Dree is scheduled to be in front of my camera, the Weather Channel app changes to 50% chance of rain (EVERY TIME!).  So of course for her Update Session we had wind and fought off the rain to get through her shoot!  Check out a few of Dree's images from her update session!!  Love this girl!

Jared and Kailey! https://www.kcpclients.com/blog/2015/2/jared-and-kailey I am so happy that I got to do Jared and Kailey's pictures last weekend!  Jared works for me and I was so excited when he asked me to do pictures of him and his stunning girlfriend Kailey!  They are seriously one of the most gorgeous couples I have ever photographed!  

I can't wait to watch their relationship grow as they head down to Tuscon for college!  

A huge congrats to Kailey who found out the night before our photoshoot that she was accepted into the University of Arizona School of Dance!! I can't wait to get her dance skills in front of my camera in the next couple of months!!  

But anyway, back to this adorable couple, check out their pictures!  I hope they love them as much as I do!

Madison and her mom came in 5 days later for their Ordering Session and these are what they chose!  I am in love with their choices!

Jared - 2015 Senior Squad Model https://www.kcpclients.com/blog/2015/1/jared---2015-senior-squad-model Okay, let me start off by saying – OMG I AM SO FAR BEHIND ON BLOGGING!!  I promise, I have been working, lol!!

Jared is a 2015 Senior at Basha High School!  He is a rock star football player and is amazing to photograph!  He is so calm and fun!  I don’t think Jared has a shy bone in his body!  Jared is one of my Senior Squad Models/Reps at Basha and I couldn’t be more excited about sharing his session!   We started out in my home-studio, and then head over to Basha to do pictures on the field and around the school!

Jared and his family were so much fun during the session, I even put them to work holding reflectors!  I love when parents come and become free labor:)

Alright, I know this is what you really came here to see, check out Jared’s Session ↓↓↓below↓↓↓!!

Breanna - 2015 Senior Squad Model https://www.kcpclients.com/blog/2015/1/breanna---2015-senior-squad-model I loved this girl and her mom from the first time we met!!  She was so freaking adorable and fun to work with!  Getting either of us to act serious during the session was virtually impossible!!  If Breanna and I weren't doing anything ridiculous, her mom was doing and neither of us could focus on the job at hand!!  But, that in turn made my job so easy to have fun, natural, amazing pictures of this gorgeous girl!!  So amazing that I am excited to announce that pictures senior session has been chosen to be featured on the Senior Style Guide Blog and I couldn't be more excited!!

This poor girl is going to have me harassing her until she goes off to college every time I need a gorgeous model for a fun shoot.  I have even started having her watch Kooper!!  Lets just say, Breanna you are stuck with me until College, if I let you go!

Okay, okay - check out her session below!!

Henry - 2015 Senior Squad Model - Basha High School https://www.kcpclients.com/blog/2015/1/henry---2015-senior-squad-model---basha-high-school Okay, so back story!  My first ever Senior Rep was Henry's gorgeous sister Sydney a couple years back!   So it makes me so happy to be able to do Henry's Senior Portraits this year!  (Fun fact:  I was at almost the exact same stage of my first pregnancy for his sister's pictures that I am in my second pregnancy for his!)

Henry seriously has it all!!  The looks, the fashion sense, the personality, the amazing ability to be natural and amazing in front of the camera! And most of all the brains!!  I love talking to him about his college plans and what schools he is looking at (schools that most kids don't have a chance to get into).  He is the most amazing kid I know! I love his entire family!  I have personality decided that if he decides on Columbia that his mom and I are going to have a few trips together to visit him so he can show me around New York!  It honestly feels impossible that he graduating this year.  It was just yesterday I did Sydney's pictures and their family pictures!  There is no way it has been 2 years already!  I am so excited to watch him do amazing things in life!  Mr. and Mrs. Chong should be so very proud of how well they did raising their amazing children!

Now that I have sapped up this blog post uggling over how much I adore this kid, lets get on to the fun part, his session!! I true Cadwallader Photography form, we had absolutely  no plan on where we were gonna shoot, just an idea of what he wanted!  Henry and his mom Sue met at my house and we drove together off into the distance, lol!  We headed towards Saguaro Lake  and once I found a spot I thought would be perfect we literally pulled off on the side of the road and started shooting!!  AND SERIOUSLY IT WAS AMAZING!!  As usually, Henry killed it in front of the camera!   Check out a few shots from this ridiculously amazing session below ↓↓↓↓↓
