save the color for in front of the lens… | Photog Tip

Last week…my mind was empty. This week, I could write a book. So goes it in the world of shawna…ha!

I rarely ever have pictures of me shooting. I love to see other photographers at their craft, so I thought I would post this. My friend Lauren took it for me, sneaky sneaky! Thanks, Lauren! I will tell you, this is not a super accurate representation of a typical shoot for one reason: what I am wearing. I always, ALWAYS wear white. Why? I use only natural light. I love backlighting. The lighter colors I wear, the better the light reflects off me & onto my subject. This makes for some even better catchlights! So there you have it…

& that’s my Kelly Moore Bag (which I love) on the right. See the bottom of my blog for a link to get your own. Next on my lust list is the Epiphanie Clover Bag. :)

Below is what I was looking at when this was taken!

Hi! Hello! I am Shawna, the founder of Styleberry Blog. This creative corner of the internet has become a learning haven for moms and creatives, offering a warm and encouraging nudge to those who wish to be better and do better, but often don't know where to start. From Decorating to DIY to Diapers and Paleo-ish Dishes, I strive to make the complicated simple and empower women to take action beyond their personal comfort zone. I subscribe to the Shine Theory & so strongly believe that we shine when the women around us shine and mutual support—lifting up instead of tearing down--will always be the culture here. Are you in? I hope so! Beyond the computer, I run Styleberry Creative where I work with clients to create low fuss, high function spaces that are pretty and practical in San Antonio, Texas and beyond. I LOVE making a house a home. My own studs out renovation is now complete and I am now back to working with clients. Please don't hesitate to drop me a line if you'd like to work together! I hope you’ll join me on this fun new adventure! Xo.
