Laurie’s Portrait Session

Meet Laurie! You probably recognize her from the Agway in Ligonier. She has been the bookkeeper there for 20 years! She is also very active in the BPW (Business and Professional Women). She is involved in the state, district, and is an asset to our Ligonier Valley local. Last year she was district director of our regional chapters. She has a warm smile, heart of gold, and a funny sense of humor. We’ve had many giggles together. I am glad to call her my friend!

Small Things Often

This was a fun project! Faith needed a variety of photos for her website and social media. She owns “Small Things Often”, where you are provided with therapeutic opportunities through her unique experiences. There is an office here in Ligonier where she offers counseling services for individuals, couples, and families. She also provides “couple” workshops. She teaches yoga and is a Grief Yoga Certified Instructor as well. 

Another offering she has is Mindful Outdoor Experiences, which is AWESOME! It involves walking through the forest with her guiding you to really be in the moment. What do you hear? What do you smell? Her next Nature Therapy walk is on October 16th. There are many events coming up and you can view them on her Facebook page above. Check out her website too at smallthingsoften.com.

Dr. Ben Carson

Despite the rain, we had another great event for Dr. Ben Carson! I look forward to photographing him every year. The Carson Scholars Fund awards students who have high levels of academic excellence and community service. 

Another amazing project Ben and his wife, Candy, created is the Ben Carson Reading Rooms. They provide funding to schools to build and maintain a warm safe place for children to discover the joy of independent leisure reading. They have over 250 of these rooms across the United States. See you next year!

Product Photos for BeauBiful Bras

Do you have a product that needs photographed for your website? I can help!

My friend Heather Juliussen created this new business and women with large breasts are going to want to read this!

This product is called “The Pillow” made by BeauBiful Bras. It will provide support, reduce frictions, and add comfort for a good night’s sleep. The Pillow provides support to the top breast (while sleeping) and prevents unwanted movement. That leads to a more comfortable and better night’s sleep. It keeps your breasts separated while you sleep, and that eliminates the friction. Without it, when you move during the night your breasts rub together. This causes skin on skin friction which leads to damage over time. Using “The Pillow” will eliminate this problem, and your chest wrinkles!

Try it out, I know you wont be disappointed! You can order your own pillow here: beaubiful.com
