Prom. You envision in your head the perfect dress, perfect hair and makeup, the perfect date of course, and dancing the night away.
What happens when you wake up the day before and your skin is not being your friend?
I’ve been to dances, had special events and I have learned a few tips and tricks. Giving your skin some extra love the week leading up to prom is always crucial.
Let’s start with the basics:
1. wake up every morning and drink a big glass of water to stay hydrated, and cleanse your face with a gentle daily cleanser.
2. At night, make sure to remove all your makeup and clear your pores and exfoliate your skin.
3. In the shower it’s also important to exfoliate your arms and legs as well, and then after you get out, make sure to lather up with lotion to keep your skin nice and soft.
4. Make sure you moisturize your face with a gentle moisturizer after you wash it and before you put any makeup on.
Follow these basic tips and your skin will thank you when prom rolls around.

Every once in a while, I like to shoot for me. I have something in my mind’s eye that I want to create. I think often times we (creatives) get bogged down by “work” that we forget to take time to make things that we want to make. Flash back a few weeks ago and a spot I had been, not so patiently, waiting for finally bloomed. It was beautiful. It was magical. I quickly scheduled a couple of clients, knowing that not everyone would be able to make it. I also grabbed my beautiful daughter and asked her to do a quick shoot with me.
I wanted to not only test the light but wanted make sure what I saw in my mind, I’d be able to create. We did and the images were gorgeous. Fast forward one week. One stinking week. Two storms, 7 days… ALL of the flowers had been destroyed in the wind. I threw a minor temper tantrum before this beautiful girl and her mother arrived. Just a minor one. I regrouped and came up with a new plan. This beautiful girl and her mom came to Fort Worth, TX EARLY last Saturday morning.
Savannah is a beautiful girl. I’ve photographed her before for a portfolio that her mother needed. I knew she could do the jumps and poses that I envisioned so I was super excited to that she was able to meet me early in the morning. What I didn’t know – was that the day before we met – it was her 13th birthday. So, this is a little late… however, HAPPY BIRTHDAY SWEET GIRL!!
It was freezing cold and she was amazing. I don’t know how her toes didn’t go numb… mine were 🙂
The light at this time of day just can’t be any prettier. Can you believe she is ONLY 13?? This just blows my mind. I love the relationship that she and her mom have. They are friends, her mom helps coach her thru her dancing and her moments, I’m sure they don’t always get along… but I will just pretend they do. Side note: I kept cracking myself up because I don’t know the official language for dance. I don’t know the names of the jumps or the poses. I’m sure they giggled all they way home listening to me be a goober trying to explain what I wanted her to do. Regardless… we always have fun when we shoot together!
Before we left, we stepped around to the other side of this art piece… the sunlight coming in behind her kept tugging at my soul and my heart. These are images I think every dancer should have. This isn’t a technically awesome picture in the world of photography… but it’s beautiful. And sometimes, you just need something to be beautiful… and not technical.
Thank you so much girls for playing with me on a chilly morning. Savannah – I hope your birthday weekend was absolutely incredible!
Much Love to you both!
If you follow along with me personally on social media – you will know that we are foodies. We LOVE to eat. We LOVE to try new places. And then… there are some places that we go back to any chance we get. A few years ago when we worked on a food truck, Chez Flo, we met and became friends with several other food truck owners. Food Truckers are an incredible community of people. It was then that we met the beautiful women who owned and ran Easy Sliders Food Truck. Such a smart concept – burger sliders with an incredible twist on them. We’ve tried almost all of them and we always fall back to our favorites.
The Roadside and The Sweet & Lowdown. Seriously… you just can’t believe how amazing the flavors are together.
Flash forward a year or so… and they have now opened they very own brick and morter restaurant. They are located in the heart of Deep Ellum in Dallas, TX. A perfect location for this girls. We stopped by last week after I had completed a session for lunch and to congratulate them on their new space. Seriously… such a great space. Not only is it big and open, it also has a patio. A bar placed right in the middle allows you to easily grab a drink while chatting with friends and still easily move around. One of the best parts of the new location… As you are walking thru, take a look at the pictures on the walls. All of the images were created from life on the food truck. I love the story it tells!
Of course we got our usual choices (creatures of habit) but we also tried their tator tots. Doesn’t this picture just make your mouth water?? I could have eaten the entire order myself.
We are so happy for the girls of Easy Sliders and can’t wait to see how successful they will be with this new physical location!
Easy Slider, 2701 Main St. Open 11 a.m. to midnight Sunday through Thursday, 11 a.m. to 2 a.m. Friday and Sunday.
