Favorite Photos From Freelance Shoot

A few months ago I was approached by a talented group of singers called Coastal Chorale. They perform several  times a year in the Gulf Coast singing everything from Christmas music to pop favorites. I designed their new program, tickets, and was asked to photograph their dress rehearsal. I was stunned at the caliber of talent that they were showcasing and had a wonderful time both shooting photos and listening to their music program. Here are a few of my favorite photos.

Homemade Christmas Ornament

A homemade Christmas ornament that is a miniature of my grandparents house. I made one for my parents house last year and thought it would be nice to do it this year for them. It’s sculpted from polymer clay baked in an oven, then painted with acrylic paint. It’s still drying and waited to be sealed with matte spray poly.


The Holidays Are Coming!

From an image on Pinterest comes our amazing new ornament topiaries. Inspired by topiaries you can buy online, my mom and I decided to create our own for out front. All in all, here is the breakdown of the cost: (2) $6 large balls from Home Depot, (2 ) $4 medium ornaments from Home Depot, (3) $1 open style ornaments from the Dollar Tree and (1) $1 pack of small ornaments from the Dollar Tree. We had the greenery, glitter sticks, gold twigs, miscellaneous medium balls, old curtain rods spray painted red (even had red spray paint) and red plastic urn containers from our old traditional topiaries. Each topiary only cost about $24 when you see these online for about $100. Not bad huh?! More projects to come!
