Goodbye 2018, Hello New Adventures in 2019!

Two Thousand Eighteen. What a year! Many ups, a few downs, but all in all it was a beautiful journey. Looking forward into the year Two Thousand Nineteen I am certain its going to be just as incredible!

What’s New: It’s a little bit of mixed emotions but I’m super excited to announce we are coming to DeRidder, Louisiana in early 2019!! I’m anxious to arrive and explore our new home! Be on the lookout for crazy photos from New Orleans, lots of green grass and trees, and I’m determined to go kiss an alligator somewhere. (It’s okay, I’m from Florida)

However, I am heartbroken to leave our home of the last three and a half years. El Paso has left its mark on my heart. If your curious, its the shape of the Star of El Paso. But you can’t get rid of me that easy! I of course am still photographing weddings all over El Paso! (Message me for travel dates if you’re interested!)

What else is going on: I’ve launched my Luxury Boudoir Brand! Women’s Portraiture, Glamour & Boudoir has always been a favorite to photograph and now I have a dedicated place for ladies only! You can visit us at www.corrineboudoir.com and join the VIP Facebook Group at group.corrineboudoir.com.

THANK YOU to my beautiful, wonderful brides, grooms, families, and all the littles for making 2018 a year to remember. Cheers and wishing you all the best in 2019!!

Gorgeous Photo from a day trip we took to Cloudcroft to see the snow!

Destination : Iceland

In July my husband and I traveled to Iceland so I could attend a workshop with Dallas’s most elite and highly awarded wedding photographer, JB Sallee of Sallee Photography. It was an incredible experience! Along with 11 other photographers, we traveled some of the most iconic and stunning locations on the freezing cold island to photograph.

When we arrived in Reykjavík we had a few hours to explore before meeting up with the group at the house. It was cold and rainy the entire trip! A huge shock from our warm sunny El Paso days!

After getting settled in and meeting all our new friends at the house we made dinner and rested from the long journey!

On Tuesday morning we trekked out to Seljalandsfoss Waterfall. It was so incredibly beautiful! We definitely got to see why it is called The Land of Waterfalls.

If you are a photographer I definitely recommend traveling with a group of models to have on standby when inspiration hits! Lol!

Then we headed to the stunning Black Sands Beach in Vik. The mountain formation was created by magma pushing toward the surface of the earth hundreds of thousands of years ago and over centuries the sediment washed away leaving the very interesting columns. We saw this type of formation in Wyoming at Devils Tower during our summer trip last year. The sand also has a magnetic element to it and stuck to some of my lighting gear.

The water and the waves were incredible!

Our third stop was Skogafoss. At this point, we were super cold so we left the cameras in the car and just got a couple cell phone shots of our model Lauren.

We drove back and had a late dinner after this. It was such a long and exciting day! But I was anxious for more exploring on day two! But we will wait for another posting!

Frank & Emily | A wedding to remember | St. Stephens Catholic Church | El Campanario Ballroom

It feels like just yesterday I was first meeting Emily and Frank and photographing their engagement session! Emily and her mom found us at the Days of Remembrance Bridal Expo last summer and I knew from the beginning it was going to be an incredible celebration.

Frank and Emily’s heartfelt ceremony was held at St. Stephens Catholic Church. What choked me up the most was when Father asked Emily and Frank to hold each others hands and remember “These are the hands that will are going to receive you… that are going to hold you… that are going to protect you… that will play with your children…  build a home with you… care for you when you’re sick and rejoice with you when you’re happy hands and these are the hands that are going to love you. So take care of those hands” <Insert Crying Here>

After their joyous ceremony, we met over at Socorro Mission for their bridal party portraits! As you can see, we had some fun and don’t worry neither the bride or groom were injured in our shenanigans.

We then headed to their reception at the beautiful El Campanario Ballroom. It was a beautiful and jubilant evening all around and I am so lucky to have been a part of it!

Quick Tip for Your Photo Session

Looking for a quick tip on how to prepare for a photo session? I’ve got the simplest quick tip for you! Photo sessions are documentations of moments and stages in our lives and some of the most prized possessions we have. As exciting and monumental as they they can also be extremely nerve wracking. From anything like not wanting to be in photos to be being self conscious or the kids acting up of all days, there is so much that can make it a stressful event. It doesn’t have to be that way though. From all the sessions I have ever done and all the amazing families, babies, weddings I’ve had the pleasure of shooting there is one thing that makes the day go smoothly. I want to share this with you.

The Quick Tip To A Great Photo Session

There are lots of tips our there and I have even given quite a few in my preparation guide though above all else there is one simple thing that everyone can do to get incredible images. It’s not fancy nor even costs anything. The best thing you can do to prepare for your photo session to ensure great images is to:

Rest and Relax.

Ok. I know it’s not so easy when it comes to such things because you want it perfect, but here is why this is the fundamental key. With plenty of rest the night before you’re in a better mood, you can manage stress better, your skin glows, and everyone looks lively and upbeat. Having matching clothes is wonderful, but if everyone has dower faces then you just wont love the images. Taking a deep breath and relaxing allows you to trust the photographer to do their job. Remember, we are professionals and have this. The more stressed you are the more stressed everyone is. This is supposed to a wonderful moment in time.

Get your rest, take deep breaths, have fun, and get great images to last a lifetime!

The Power of Bribery

Picture day can be a very, very stressful time if you have children. Finding the right outfit and a date that everyone is available on already causes you a headache. Once you have that down, though, everything is smooth sailing. You have prepared everything to be perfect, and then your worst nightmare happens – your child won’t cooperate. Even after you’ve coached him or her for the past two weeks and the entire car ride leading up to the session, your kiddo still just isn’t having it. You’ve tried all of the usual tricks and nothing is working. Sounds terrible, right?

Well, I’m here today to save you from this nightmare, and help you prevent this from even happening. Behold the power of bribery. I know some people frown upon this, however, they probably haven’t tried to get a two, six, and 10-year-old to sit in one position together, look at the camera, and smile. It’s no easy task! As a photographer, I’m going to give you the green light and tell you that it’s OK to bribe your kids for the sake of good photos.

We may have a very limited amount of time to get all of the photos that you need, and I don’t want you to be stressed out or feel crunched for time because little Timmy is having a meltdown, is hiding behind his hands the entire session, or sticking his tongue out at me. So, I welcome bribery with arms wide open.

Every child is different when it comes to bribery. They all have different personalities and like different things. Some children are motivated by candy, others cash. You just have to find out what works best for your child.

Here are some suggestions that we’ve noticed have worked.

Candy or fruit snacks

Dinner at their favorite restaurant after the session

Later bedtime

That awesome toy they’ve been drooling over

Extra TV time

A sleepover with a friend

Extended play time

They don’t have to eat their vegetables that night at dinner

They don’t have to do chores the next day

Give them back a privilege that’s been taken away the last time they were in trouble

While these aren’t the only options, we thought we’d give you a starting point to brainstorm your own ideas to help get your child to cooperate.

This photo was made possible by a trip to the OKC Zoo! LOL
