Grisel Barajas and Daniel engagement session ~ CNE photography Indianapolis IN

Checkout Grisel Barajas and Dany’s engagement session. They met in high school, but didn’t start dating until a few years later… It took this couple a few years after graduating high school to meet again and realize they were meant for each other… What a great day they had scheduled to spend together and I was honored to be the photographer. They will have these photos to remember forever.

Grisel y Daniel se conocieron en high school, pero no empezaron a salir juntos hasta muchos años despues. Les tomo un par de años recontrarse y darse cuenta que serian el uno para el otro. Escojieron un dia hermoso para la sesion de fotos y para mi fue un honor captar este hermoso momento en sus vidas.

Happy New Year! ~ Indianapolis Wedding Photography

It’s been a wonderful year with lots of amazing moments. Thank you for letting me photograph your beautiful faces, your lovely families, your homes, your happy and fun, the new things, the things about to change, the love between you.

May your days be filled with the love of family and friends!

Happy New Year!

Español: Ha sido un año maravilloso con muchos momentos increíbles. Gracias por dejarme fotografiar sus hermosos rostros, sus encantadoras familias, sus hogares, su alegría y felicidad, las nuevas cosas, las cosas que están a punto de cambiar, el amor entre ustedes.

Que sus días estén llenos de amor de su familia y amigos!

Feliz 2017, a celebrar!

Tips: how to look perfect for your Bridal Glamour Portrait Session

Ready for your Bride Session? Here some helpful posing tips.

Turn sideways
When standing, angle your body at 45 degrees. This creates a slimmer profile than if you were to face the camera head-on.

Open your eyes
To avoid looking sleepy in every frame, opening your eyes as wide as you can a few seconds before the picture is taken.

Laugh a little
Giggle out loud when your photographer starts snapping (or ask someone to tell a joke)—it will give you a more natural smile.

Brides Collection (1 of 2)


Use the right flash
“Make sure your photographer is using  the correct lighting to eliminate red eye

Lower Your Flowers
Hold your flowers low, just below your belly button. You don’t want to hide your gorgeous gown or a trim waistline behind a large bouquet.

Happy Father’s Day!

God took the strength of a mountain,
The majesty of a tree,
The warmth of a summer sun,
The calm of a quiet sea,
The generous soul of nature,
The comforting arm of night,
The wisdom of the ages,
The power of the eagle’s flight,
The joy of a morning in spring,
The faith of a mustard seed,
The patience of eternity,
The depth of a family need,Then God combined these qualities,
And then there was nothing more to add,
He knew His masterpiece was complete,
And so, He called it – Dad.

The Best Dress for Your Body

How to choose your dress according to your body type:

 

 

#1: Your body is SLENDER.
Go for: Anything — you’ll look great in a slim dress or a puffy dress. Just make sure the dress you choose is a reflection of your personality
Avoid: Uncomfortable dresses. Remember, you’ve gotta dance all night!

#2: Your body is ATHLETIC.
Go for: A halter neckline. It really enhances your shoulders and arms ~ Reap the benefits of all those laps you did around the pool.
Avoid: A ball gown or voluminous dress, which could create a bulky look.

The Best Dress for Your Body

#3: Your body is CURVY.
Go for: An empire waist or A-line dress. It’ll focus people’s attention on your shoulders and face, not on your stomach and hips.

Ahora que vienen los proms y quinceañeras encontre apropiado compartir estos tips para la hora que vayan a escoger su vestido… Como escojer tu vestido de acuerdo a tu tipo de cuerpo:

#1: Si tu cuerpo es ESBELTO.
Elige: Cualquier tipo de vestido, ya sea ceñido u holgado. Sólo asegúrate de que el vestido que elijas sea un reflejo de tu personalidad                                                                Evita: Los vestidos incómodos. Recuerda que tendrás que bailar.

#2: Si tu cuerpo es ATLÉTICO.
Elige: Un escote sin espalda. Acentuará mucho tus hombros y brazos. Aprovecha las ventajas de tanto ejercicio.
Evita: los vestidos pomposos (muy voluminosos), que puede hacerte ver muy corpulenta.

#3: Si tu cuerpo tiene más CURVAS.
Elige: Un vestido acampanado o de corte imperio. Hará que la gente le ponga atención a los hombros y la cara, y no a la cintura o las caderas.
Evita: Vestidos ajustados o telas muy finas que se peguen al cuerpo.

Que disfruten su busqueda!
