Birthday Shoot for Carly. Happy 18th!

Carly wanted to do something fun and different with her 2 best friends for her 18th birthday. Being that her mom is one of my best friends, we decided to treat Carly and her friends to a day of beauty and photoshoots at my studio at The Silk Mill! The ladies started off at my other good friends make-up studio: ALISHA NYCOLE & CO (only a few doors down from my studio). (She's the BEST by the way if you ever need hair and make-up done!!) We started with typical headshots (being that they are Seniors in H.S. it was perfect to get a great LinkedIN profile pic out of the way. Plus, headshots are my thing!!) Then we played with some lights and the fan, followed by some party/balloon shots (Balloons provided by another vendor here at The Silk Mill: Balloon Works  (Thanks KAREN!)  I hope you had a GREAT day Carly!! Enjoy the pics!! I'm sure the memories will last a lifetime!!     For booking, emailinfo@elainezelker.com

For example, I may see a picture of a cat, and the caption reads, “my cat”…First thing I think is…DUH!!Not that there’s anything wrong with posting a picture of your cat sleeping by a window, but what’s the point? What ‘feeling’ are you trying to tap into? Why would someone care?Here’s how you can change that…tell a story in your caption, like: “Check out Finster basking in the sun. It reminds me that I have to take time to savor the sweet, soft moments in life. There are days I just go, go, go…I need to be more like Finster. Do you ever feel this way?” Boom! You ...
