Behind The Scenes: Brett Siegel Wedding Photography

I love this couple photographer - Brett and Liz Photography. They have helped me understand the importance of people skills. They are a wonderful couple that used me as a model for their pet photography portfolio. And ever since then I have always tried to get their guidance. Brett and Liz met at photography school. So they have a lot to offer as a couple when it comes to understanding teamwork, techniques in photography and marketing. Here is quick look at the their wedding shoot for an online wedding magazine. I was their assistant for the day.

Women's Day!

Happy International Women's Day! This day marks a celebration of Women all around the world. :] I think its great day to say to every girl: you are beautiful! not for the makeup you are wearing or the clothes you put on - but because of you. Your smile, your thoughts...because of who You are. :]

Ive noticed women very often put each other down, and reduce each others self esteem and confidence. I have been a part of this too. I think its time to change. Nothing is worth comparing to each other or trying to run a race. We are all beautiful and talented. We do not need to compete but love what we do. Follow your heart. Don't ever think any dream is too big. Practice your art because practice makes you better - not perfect! And do it for yourself, not anyone else.

I hope I wasn't mumbling :] Here is a picture I share with you today. This is my gorgeous big sister I look up to. This was from a photoshoot last weekend and I cant wait to share more pictures with you!

Warrior Princess

So today was a scary day for me. Not only was this my first shoot with a horse it was also the first time someone got hurt at the photoshoot. Everything was going great. The makeup and hair was coming along wonderfully, the designer brought some gorgeous dresses for the gorgeous model to wear and the horse was getting brushed ready for the shoot. As we move to the grass area we hear wind picking up, still everything was fine. And we get to this perfect location - trees all around, the greenest grass you could ever find, everything looking gorgeous. The model gets ready to go on the horse and all of a sudden the wind picks up as she is climbing on the horse and the horse decides to throw her over. She flips over the front of the horse and lands on the grass. I think one of the bravest models I have ever seen. I learned a lot today - nothing is predictable and even if everything is perfect you have to take small steps. And people's safety is first and foremost! Super glad to share that the model is doing great and she only suffered a sprain on her hand. Thank you chauntelle for being so brave! Models like you really show what this Industry is all about - strength and beauty!
