Fall Family Session: Ingram Family

It is hard to put into words how incredibly honored I am to not only have the opportunity to capture so many beautiful moments of this precious family's session but to also call them my friends.  I photographed Kallie and Brian when I first started out after they had just gotten engaged and it has been such a pleasure to watch them grow as a family, overcome huge obstacles (while keeping a smile on their face) and become such a massive inspiration to SO many people.  

Kallie, Brian and Arria, thank you so very much for the opportunity to photograph your beautiful family.  The love between you three is so tangible and I am honored that you thought of me when you were looking to document this season in your lives. Muah!

2015 Cold Weather Fashion Guide

One of the number one questions I receive from my wonderful clients after they book their session is "What should we wear?"  Normally, I would just send them a link to my current fashion guide but I thought it would be fun to share my new cold weather fashion guide so everyone can benefit.  So without further ado, here is BDC's 2015 Cold Weather Fashion Guide!

Colorful boots and warm parkas are both practical and romantic for a rainy day shoot! There are so many beautiful solid-colored rain boots to choose from these days - pick a hue that you love and build the rest of the outfit around it. Snuggly fur linings and knit materials add detail and interest to your images while keeping you warm and dry.

Just because the weather’s grey doesn’t mean your outfit has to be! Choosing a single pop color - in this case magenta - and building an outfit of grayscale solids around it make for exciting compositions in photographs. Guys - don’t shy away from color either. Sometimes a surprising hue, such as the mauve pictured here, can be especially flattering and handsome on the gentlemen.
