Counting Into the New Year - Day Six https://www.photosbyjuliet.com/blog/2018/12/counting-into-the-new-year---day-six Sometimes I support initiatives with a photoshoot here and there. This is true for a special initiative where I got involved in early 2018.

Josh Goralski has been working to build Community Businesses in Haiti, which are initiated by providing these long-term use ceramic water filters for the communities to sell and use. This past summer, Josh and I spent countless hours working through his mission and vision while forming and documenting a full business plan for this social enterprise. This fall Josh, and his Board of Directors, worked to incorporate and apply for 501(c)3 status to create a non-profit that focuses on his work...it is called Unlocking Communities. Our organizational mission is to unlock strengths to empower communities and elevate Haiti. To learn more about Josh's vision and to support the work that is already in beta communities in Haiti --- go to UnlockingCommunities.org

So please join me for day 1 of my 12 days of Christmas blog! 

Thanks to this fun family...an old friend with a new addition!  It made for a great day with this beautiful family at Loyola!

Christmas Countdown 2014! Merry Christmas! https://www.photosbyjuliet.com/blog/2014/12/christmas-countdown-2014-merry-christmas Our children are at an age when stopping to smile for Mom is not coming easily.  Perhaps it is that each person has a limit on the volume of photos that he/she will allow in a lifetime?  Or it really just may be the age…at least for my daughter.  But if I can keep it quick…I still get a little participation…and for that I continue to be thankful and honored!

Love love these people and the little puffy white dog too.

Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays and Wishes for the best 2015!!

Christmas Countdown 2014! Twelve! https://www.photosbyjuliet.com/blog/2014/12/christmas-countdown-2014-twelve It sounds contrite, but I know of no other word than honor to describe what I feel when I am asked to take photographs!  Each time I head out with my unattractive photography backpack I feel honor and try to remember to say a little thank you for the privilege...if only silently to myself.

It is especially incredible to be asked to take photographs of a newborn.  That time when you are just getting your legs under you, whether it be your first or your fourth baby, is such a delicate time for the whole family.  From a mother's perspective, it is hard to find a time to invite cameras into your home when you are really just searching for a few more hours of rest for both you and your littlest people.

So I kick off the Christmas Countdown with a very special family who had added two additions to their family in 2014!

These boys have a lovely group to join with a big brother and a big sister to lean on...

PBJ's New Logo!! https://www.photosbyjuliet.com/blog/2014/3/pbj-2-0 I am delighted to unveil my new logo!!!

 

I think it is casual, fun and a little bit unembellished (aka simple)…I guess that represents me well.  What do you think?

 

Thank you to Bill Bostrom for your talents!  His breadth of ideas and his way of working with my spotty and unclear feedback was amazing!

If you have any need for a graphic designer who is very easy to work with…Bill at Bostrom Design is your guy!

Corporate Head Shots with Personality... https://www.photosbyjuliet.com/blog/2014/3/corporate-headshots-with-personality There are many options for professional head shots…so here are some notes that may come in handy...

A professional head shot with a simple white background can lend itself to varied marketing usage….

Photos by Juliet Corporate Head ShotsNavint Partners

 

Professional head shots that are more close-up work well with social media like linked-in...

Photos by Juliet Corporate Head Shots

 

Sometimes showing a little of your surroundings in otherwise uneventful head shots can work well too….showing a little depth of field is fun and interesting...

Photos by Juliet Corporate Head Shots

 

Depending on your industry, you can have your professional head shots done in outdoors…love to do that whenever possible!  Everyone…seems happier outdoors…everyone.

Photos by Juliet HeadshotsEvelyn Phelps Interior Designer, Bailey and Hart Interiors

 

No matter what…having your personality show is still highly recommended…especially in corporate head shots...

Love photographing great interiors https://www.photosbyjuliet.com/blog/2014/1/love-photographing-great-interiors It is always fun to photograph people because of the varied personalities…and I can say the same for photographing interiors.  Sometimes it is like walking into a painting as you are, in fact, walking into a piece of artwork.  

Earlier this year I had the pleasure of photographing a home where the interiors were completed by Steffanie Danby.  Love the warm personality of this home.

On the Twelfth Day... https://www.photosbyjuliet.com/blog/2013/12/on-the-twelfth-day
On the twelfth day of Christmas my trusty camera gave to thee...twelve months with family, eleven beachy moments, ten blue eyes smiling, nine months pre-walking, eight LP Zoo shots, seven in a hammock, six including Lucky, five people who sing!  Four stuffy friends, three scene changes, two kiddos playing and a family with a new baby.

So my most appreciation goes to my family!  My favorite subjects and those who I am very lucky (pun intended as the white furry guy is named Lucky), blessed and challenged to spend most every day with throughout the year.  These are the people who I love the most...and who...I learned this year...I feel most guilty about not spending more time with when I am editing.  

Sometimes I cannot even understand their beauty..I appreciate the beauty of so many others...but from day to day I am in awe of these people as I see all sides and (most days) appreciate all sides and their role in making our lives a richer and fuller experience.  

I would have missed so much without you.  Thank you God for my family.  I am a better person to have really known each of you and the world is a better place with you.

So I just realized in working on this project that this family is super smiley and they happen to have eyes that are blue to the point where they appear completely photoshopped...well if you know this family you know that these are their real eyes.  Thus...the 10 blue eyes smiling.

On the First Day... https://www.photosbyjuliet.com/blog/2013/12/on-the-first-day In the spirit of appreciation for the families who I get to meet and, in many cases, get to know better...this year I am presenting a 12 days of Christmas countdown to highlight some of the families who I have had the pleasure of photographing. For those who celebrate Hanukkah...there is no way I could have gotten my act together that early!  Boy it came early this year.  What is fitting with this count down to December 25th is that I am receiving many of the holiday cards so I feel like I can share photos and not ruin the fun surprise of their various holiday cards!

____________________________________________________

 

On the first day of Christmas my trusty camera gave to thee (yes this is cheesy but it is the best I can do)...a family with a new baby.

And this baby number four won the lottery in terms of getting to join the most kind family ever!  Most of the photos were taken where you will find this family most days...outside!

Tis the Season https://www.photosbyjuliet.com/blog/2013/12/tis-the-season Tis the season for giving. If you are looking for a family friendly project that embodies the holiday spirit, here is some information on how to help and give care packages to the homeless of Logan Square in Chicago for an on-going (36 week) effort by Gene Pellegrene, a Chicago Artist and owner of Artist Painters.

Photography by Photos by JulietGene's Care Package Efforts for the Homeless of Logan Square December 2013Gene Pellegrene Chicago Artist and Owner of Artist Painters, Photos by Photos by Juliet Gene has truly connected with the homeless who he would merely notice as he would drive by for years prior. He has taken it upon himself to become a reliable source for the homeless in Logan Square as Gene brings care packages to them on a regular basis for 36 weeks now.  Gene's videos on YouTube tell the stories best of the men and women who he has helped.  

What exactly goes into the care packages?  How can you get your care packages to Gene?  Well, Gene stresses calorie dense foods along with novel ideas for care packages like baby wipes, tums, ponchos, socks and first aid kits. 

A full list of great ideas is included on the Beauty and Balance Salon of Kenilworth website.  Salon owners Kelly and Dawn Stobart have partnered with Gene for this month to collect care packages from those who would like to make a donation if you live nearby in Chicagoland's North Shore.

If you live elsewhere you can check out Gene's site.  In addition Gene suggests, on his Fund Anything page, that perhaps you may consider contributing directly to the homeless in your own area:

"Im finding the care packages have become a vehicle for connecting, understanding and providing human interaction.  I urge people that live in similar populated areas where homelessness is present to create care packages for themselves and experience the positive effects on the recipients but most of all to themselves. I discovered I have gained in patience, empathy, I have a new perspective on life and am experiencing something wonderful."

My children and I assembled some bags with creative contents based on Gene's insights and dropped them off at Beauty and Balance Salon last month.  My children included very thoughtful and hope-filled letters to the recipients.  It really helped us all to put ourselves in the shoes of the recipient.  Thank you Gene for your dedication and for introducing us to the homeless members of your community who you have come to know.  Your video blogs are an honest look at how connected we all are to one another as they share their unique circumstances and challenges.

Photographing Interiors: Home Staging and Home Styling for the Holidays https://www.photosbyjuliet.com/blog/2013/11/photographing-interiors-home-staging-and-interior-design Earlier this month I had an interior photo shoot with Cecilia Cannon who does Home Staging, Event Styling and Home Re-design.  She was using her diverse skills to solve a common problem this time of year...How do you decorate for the holidays when your home is for sale?

 

Alexa Burnell, Content Coordinator-Kenilworth Life and Greeley Life, says it best "While the thought of hosting open houses and showings during the holiday season sounds nerve-wracking, Cecilia Cannon can help you decorate a timeless and classy home that will capture the essence of the season while wowing potential buyers."

 

And here is a great example of a clean and simple way to decorate for holidays while your home is for sale.

The Silly Shot https://www.photosbyjuliet.com/blog/2013/11/the-silly-shot You have to love the silly shot...there are so many....but one fun one is the family jumping photograph.  These are great for the back of the holiday card.

Or the mark of a truly fun family...the front!  

Happy holiday card shopping.  Many clients are focusing on it before the holiday season kicks off with Thanksgiving in a couple of weeks.

North Shore Location Photo Shoots https://www.photosbyjuliet.com/blog/2013/11/north-shore-location-photo-shoots Life can be so hectic with little people so a location photoshoot at home can be a great option for holiday photographs!  I love love real life as a back drop and if there is a pillow in the background...it is just that much better if it is yours!  

Case in point....these are their pillows! And it just works.  

BTW, you have to love how that little lady looks at her big brothers!  

Don't get me wrong on the location recommendation...I love Lake Michigan for photographs the very most and the more trees the better...but sometimes it just works to pop out into your yard and catch a few photos and go on with your day! Like these sisters who I photographed last month...

Fall Chicagoland Photography https://www.photosbyjuliet.com/blog/2013/10/fall-fall-fall So I was definitely not the only one taking professional photographs near the honeycomb structure in Lincoln Park Zoo last weekend.  I had to avoid the other photographers and clients in the background...but it was well worth the effort because Chicago did such a great job in providing us a picturesque place to stroll and spend time with family.

Still editing but here are a couple photographs...
