Meet the Dempsey Family! These blue eyed baby dolls are instant heart melters and if you spend a minute around them, you too will be smiling with joy from ear to ear. This family has the biggest hearts – they are lovers, givers, and beautiful people on the inside and out! We have loved watching this family grow!

Stitch Fix – One way to dress for your photo session!

Hello convenience, customized styles and amazing new clothes! Prepping for your photo session can be a bit overwhelming if you are like me and A) don’t have time to go shopping and B) stink at putting outfits together! But, we have discovered a new tool to use in addition to our What to Wear page. Let’s talk about this handy tool called Stitch Fix.

I signed up on their website and really enjoyed setting up my Style Profile. I also created a new board on Pinterest to give my stylist an idea of what I love. For the best styling results, I made notes on each of the pins on my board. This helped my stylist know what I loved about each pin. After my Style Profile was done and I had shared my Pinterest board with my stylist, I placed an order for my first “Fix.” Holy cow, let me tell you….EVERY day after placing my order I was like a gitty little girl waiting for the package to arrive! When I got an email with my tracking number, I clicked on it multiple times a day anxiously waiting for my box to arrive. Then, the big day was here! My box had been delivered! Check out the video of the opening of my box!

First of all, the box had adorable tape and a logo on the outside.



Inside of the box, there was a cute welcome card with instructions on what to do next.


Also included were Style Cards. This was SUPER helpful for me!! Each card displayed outfit ideas on how to utilize the pieces that were inside the box.


Then, the grand finale happened! There are 5 items included in every box. My box had 2 pairs of jeans (per my request).


Then, there was an adorable knit top with soft tones.


And my personal favorite was the gorgeous vest and plaid shirt!


Included in my box was a free shipping bag to send unwanted items back. I decided I would keep the vest and send the other items back.  My $20 Styling fee was credited towards the purchase of the vest. I simply logged into my account online, filled out a review on each of my items, and checked out the item I was keeping. Then, of course I placed an order for my next “Fix.”

Because I am a mom, I don’t have time to go to the mall to pick out new clothes. So, for me this is a life saver! I was able to try everything on in the comfort of my own home. How COOL is that!

We have a lot of clients who inquire about how to plan outfits for their photo session. Our suggestion….hop onto Stitch Fix, fill in a note letting your stylist know that you need certain pieces for a photo session (you can specify color, necessary jewelry, etc), and place an order to be shipped to your home. They even have Stitch Fix for men!

Happy “at home” shopping and we hope you love this handy tool!

With  love,

Meet Teresa, Christian, Tuco and Scruffy! – Columbia, MO Photographers

(Hopefully I spelled the puppies names correctly!) A few weeks ago we held our annual fall mini photo sessions. Once of the great things about being a Columbia, MO Photographer is living near beautiful Nifong Park.

We’ve only spent about 1 hour total with Teresa over the past two years during her photo session, but in talking with her during the booking process as well as during her session, we can tell she’s one of our people! You know when you meet someone and you just “click”?  Both her and Christian have such fun and happy personalities. And having the dogs at the session always ends up in quite a few laughs! We always look forward to their session each year.
