Earlier.Org Gingerbread Competition

December 18, 2016

I enjoyed the day yesterday at the Earlier.org Gingerbread competition! I set up a Photo Booth for the jolly elves who were there to decorate their gingerbread houses! It was a full-on competition with folks cutting out the house shapes, frosting the houses and then decorating with candy and other goodies!   Thanks to everyone who came by to take some fun photos! Here's the link to download them:

Sherlock 2016

October 23, 2016  •  Leave a Comment

I've been privileged to photograph events for a local non-profit group, Earlier.org over the past few years. The most recent was their Sherlock 5K dog walk to raise money for Earlier.org's goal — a biological test to find breast cancer sooner. 

The adorable dogs were dressed in costumes and ran or walked with their humans around Country Park!  There were lots of fun things going on and one of them was a photo booth I set up for the pups!  Unfortunately the wind would not cooperate with my intended set up, but I think we had a lovely setting!  

Each download of an image from this event is a small $5 donation but all the funds will go to Earlier.org!  

If you'd like a personalized pet session or a family session including your pet, call me at 336 554 3987 or email me at shelli@shellicraig.com

 

Thanks to Earlier.org for the opportunity to photograph these lovelies!

Our studio has a new location!

If you've never been to Revolution Mill, you are in for a wonderful surprise. Revolution Mill is located just off of Yanceyville Street in Greensboro. Exciting things are happening there. The owners are developing a space for living, working and creating!

They are in the process of building nearly 150 apartments that will be GORGEOUS!  There will be more artists' studios -- and these are also very beautiful - glass rooms with lots of light!  They are developing an outdoor courtyard for performances and other events.  It is really going to be fantastic and I'm so happy to be located in this gorgeous space.

There is plenty of room for parking and there is a great little coffee shop/bakery just upstairs from our studio!



 


ClickAway

This past week I spent time at Click Away, a photography convention put together by ClickinMoms an online forum for photographers and moms! I'm both! I've learned a lot on their website over the years but the main reason I wanted to come to Click Away was to meet Sue Bryce. 


Sue Bryce is a glamour photographer from NZ who has lived internationally and currently lives in LA. She is one of the most uplifting and giving photographers but she is an amazing soul more than anything. She spoke, not on photography, but on self-worth and on self-love and how these things are inherent problems for many women. She has lived it and talked about how to overcome the fears we have of success and the limits we place on ourselves based on our inner conversations. It was beautiful. She's amazing and the chance to meet her was worth the cost of the whole convention. 

 

I was lucky enough to speak with her individually and I laughed because she looked at me and said "You're a shorty, aren't you?" LOL Yeah.. pretty much so. And I think I'm getting shorter with age.  Regardless, she was beautiful and amazing and I completely am excited to continue to learn from her. She teaches a lot about posing women, shooting beautiful portraits of every woman.  I think this is so important! 

 

I took a few classes including a pet photography class - Maverick the model was not at all cooperative, but it was fun to try to get his attention. I took a class on The Playful Photographer - about photographing children at play by Kellie Bieser. Oh my gosh. She's so cute and such a great teacher. You just want to scoop her up and take her home with you.  I took a class by a photographer whose work I admire - Meg Bitton.  I enjoyed the class I took with Michelle Turner who talked about flash and Profoto lights.  Kate Parker shared her Strong is the New Pretty campaign and she's adorable. She looks just like my friend Jill if Jill had blonde hair. :)  So those were the highlights. 

I made a great new friend -- she lives in my hometown where I was born, but she went to college in my current town. My cousin works with her husband, her kids go to my high school and know my cousin's daughter... it was just amazing how many things we had in common and I feel like my sister is going home without me.. Such a fun time. I tend to talk to everyone so I met a lot of cool people. Ann, Mary, Jenny, Emily, Lori... gosh so many I can't recall the rest without looking at my new stack of business cards. 

 

I went on a field trip to old Austin. It was fun but I think I would have liked a little more structure as I'm not one to roam the streets alone. My friend went to an olive farm. I can't wait to hear all about it.   Here are some photos from my trip. 

 


Puppy Kisses!

Recently I was contacted by a nice group who provides foster homes for Boston Terriers in our area! I had a Boston Terrier before I got married and I always think of him fondly, even though he was crazy and ate my Christmas decorations! 

After a few attempts at coordinating schedules, we finally found a day for the 2 lovelies to come into the studio for their session!  One of the guys - Rowdy - is a 9 year old little Boston with a personality to fill a room! He gave the BEST kisses!  The beautiful girl just LOOKS like a Boston, but is actually a Boxer with Boston Terrier marking! Lillith was a TOTAL sweetheart and very docile and kindhearted!  


Here are some of the images -- I purposefully used the little red suitcase to show "I'm ready to go home!" :)   If you'd like to learn more about the 2 sweeties or any of the dogs available through BTRNC, visit http://www.btrnc.org

Can't wait to hear that these two sweethearts have homes!
