I specialize in High School Senior Girls in Northern California and I have been in business since 2008. I enjoy working with teenagers and being a mentor to them through my senior model program. When I am not working hard, I am playing hard with my husband and 2 kiddos on the weekends.

Image Stats:

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

I didn’t receive any critiques, however someone asked if I had used a reflector. Since the side/back lighting was so strong, I used the reflector to bounce light into her face. It created beautiful catch lights and really helped even out the lighting.

Blog Love Week 19

Chic Critique Forum Blog Love

Do you post on your blog only to hear crickets? Do you sometimes feel like you are talking to yourself (and maybe your Mom) on your blog? Do you need some LOVE?

Chic Critique is here for you, girl. In 2013, we are doing a weekly feature on our blog every Saturday called “BLOG LOVE” where you can showcase your  blog posts on Chic Critique for lots of love.

SWEET BENEFITS:

  • Use this as motivation to blog at least once a week
  • Boost your SEO: your thumbnail will link back to your own blog for lots of publicity and SEO lovin’!
  • Get blog comments from our fans
  • Show off your work
  • Get published! One of your images might be featured in an upcoming issue of Chic Magazine

It’s so easy! HERE’S HOW IT WORKS:

You must be a member of Chic Critique forum to participate 

  1. Post some pics on your own blog with a link back to Chic Critique
  2. Every weekend, submit your permalink (not your main blog address) from your own blog post to the frog icon (see sample below) to our weekly Saturday “Blog Love” blog post
  3. Your image will then show up as a thumbnail on OUR blog and allow our readers to click on your image to check out YOUR blog.

Need a reminder? We’ll help remind you in our weekly newsletter and on Facebook so be sure to become a fan and subscribe to our newsletter.

ENTER YOUR BLOG POST IMAGES FOR THIS WEEK BY CLICKING ON THE FROG BELOW:
Don’t forget to leave a comment on the other entries because that is half the fun! Also, submit your photo early since those seem to be the ones who receive the most comments.

    Chic Retreat was amazing! Having the opportunity to meet and connect with so many fabulous women! To talk about our passion, our dreams, our hopes… To laugh, to play, to cry… Kelli my dear – you created something incredible (along with Ashlee and Cassie) and we were all blessed to have gotten to be a part of it!
