CHIC OF THE WEEK | MELISSA AVEY

Congrats Melissa Avey! Your image is fabulous so we had to feature you as the Chic of the Week.

With dark tones along with the beautiful skin tones, there was no way I could let it slip by without sharing it in a CHIC of the Week post.

Congrats again to Melissa Avey of Melissa Avey Photography!  You’ve been awarded a gift certificate from one of our vendors for being selected as Chic of the Week!

Which photo of your own would you like to see featured on the site?

If you upload your favorite photos to the forum, we just might feature yours next.

I’m a photographer from Cambridge, Ontario. I want to be a “portrait artist.” It sounds fancier. I have a husband and 3 beautiful children who I love dearly and stalk constantly with my camera. I adore capturing people in natural moments and most of my work is shot that way. Sometimes my clients get confused when I tell them to just go play.

Image Stats:

Early evening, natural light in a park. We were in a great spot where he actually went in the woods just a touch and started playing. He turned around and began walking towards us on a log then just stopped and looked up at me and I got this expression.

I was at 1.8 , 1/320, ISO – 200. Post processing was done in Photoshop CS6. The best expressions are the natural ones!

What critique from Chic Critique Forum did you find helpful after sharing this image?

Sarah O’Connor mentioned that it’s great as long as the whole session is edited in the same style. I just wanted to say that I used to do a lot of sessions where I would pick 1 or 2 images and do an artistic edit on them and it just wasn’t consistent. I think it’s much better when the session flows together. I feel like if the look of each image is different as you go through the session then you can lose the connection. So a great tip from her.

Tribal print dress and mustard colored jacket | FASHION FRIDAY

by Kelli France | Editor-in-Chief

I‘m loving the tribal print that is popular right now so it was fun to combine it with a pop of color. I don’t wear yellow like EVER but I just love this mustard color of yellow so I HAD to get this jacket. Oh and I just got this bag recently and I’m OBSESSED! It looks like a posh handbag but it’s really a camera bag! I love things that are pretty AND practical!
