Hey y’all! Happy Hump Day!
I’ve made some exciting changes over here in Pink Coffee World and wanted to take a minute to catch you up on what’s happening this year.

1. Okay, this is the part I’m most excited about! I’m now officially offering “A Day in the Life” packages. Yay! This is something I’ve wanted offer for a long time but really wanted to do it right, so it took a while to get all the details worked out. Remember last month when I shared my “Day in the Life of the Habeck Family” with you? I flew up to stay with them for a weekend and got to shoot their typical Saturday morning at home. And I came home so re-charged. This might have been from all the good food they fed me too, but it was mostly because I realized how much I LOVE the idea of taking pictures of a family in their own home, doing what they do. It’s messy, and it’s beautiful. And it makes me so happy to freeze those real moments. I came home and went to work figuring out the logistics… So here’s what a typical “Day in the Life” package will look like: I’ll spend a half-day (up to 4 hours) at your home and one other location of your choice capturing your family doing what you do. I actually thought about a full day, but let’s be honest. Your family doesn’t want me around for a whole day! If we were doing one of these shoots with my family we’d hang out around the house then walk to breakfast at one of our favorite places. Or maybe go to the park (or beach!) because that’s kind of what we do. And that’s what I want to remember from this time! I really could go on and on about this all day. And I probably will. Sorry in advance if you run into me today, and I tell you all about this again.

In fact, I want everyone reading this to book one of these packages, so I’m offering 20% off any “A Day in the Life” package booked by the end of March! Click here to download a pdf with all the details. Then contact me if you have any questions. Okay, are you excited yet?!? Good. We must move on…

2. Another new feature this year is a combined Maternity/Newborn package. I’ve been getting requests for this for about a year, but honestly stayed away from the idea, because I don’t really see myself as a classic newborn photographer. My shoots are more “new family hanging out at home and kissing the baby” than “baby in a basket wearing a flower headband.” I like the other style. It just isn’t what I do. But I shot a few newborn sessions last year and loved them so much! The parents really trusted me to just capture this stage in their lives – spit up and all – and I was so grateful for that. (See some examples here and here.) I really didn’t think there was a market in Jacksonville for this type of newborn work, but there you all go proving me wrong again! So here goes… I’ll now be offering a combined Maternity/Newborn package for anyone interested. Click here to download the Maternity/Newborn Package Guide.

3. Last, I’ve revamped all of my print packages. In the past I wasn’t very intentional with these and was just offering what I thought everyone else did. But I want to be more hands-on with my clients and help them order packages that will be perfect in their homes. So for the most part that means larger prints in all three print packages. You know you need more giant prints in your home. Right?! Like this one in my bathroom. Ha!! Seriously though. Bigger is better. 🙂

I know this is a lot, so don’t hesitate to hit that “contact” button up there and tell me how confused you are after reading all of this!
I’m excited to work with a lot of you this year. Wait. Did I already say that?!?


  1. I was really hoping the video Anderson did for you was going to be one of your “new” offerings…a girl can dream right!? Very excited about your “day in the life of” package! Can’t wait to take advantage of this… 🙂

  2. I am currently writing a paper that is very related to your content. I read your article and I have some questions. I would like to ask you. Can you answer me? I’ll keep an eye out for your reply. 20bet

  3. » If you have long hair then trimming hair in a uniform length is very easy. All you have to do is comb all the hair down and then cut them in a straight line.» Make sure you always cut a little, comb and check. Measure twice but cut only once.» When cutting long hair in a uniform length, hold one section of the hair with the comb and then with other hand hold the scissor and make a straight cut. This way cut the whole hair. Comb and check, cut once more if you feel it is uneven. Honestly, I haven’t found that it’s a big difference for the front! I also haven’t played with the height of the pony tail much, but that’s a good idea. 😀 You can even it out further after cutting by parting it down the middle in the back like you’re putting it in pigtails and then pulling the two ends forward over each shoulder and then trimming those again. I do that from time to time, but I normally don’t need it. You might also want to look into using the two hair elastics method mentioned in the comments below – I bet it’d work really well with thick hair, so you could easily cut a little at a time. 🙂
    And that’s how to do eyeshadow on your own. Stunning, right? This simple eyeshadow application technique works for all kinds of looks – a fun and bold look, a party glitter eyeshadow look, or an everyday muted look. The only difference in the application of light and dark eyeshadows depends on your eye shape, crease, and whether you have low or high eyebrows. It also depends on your skin tone and the color of your eyes. You can still find amazing deals online now. Black Friday Deals Now here’s a throwback way to apply eyeshadow — dating all the way back to seventh grade! This tried and true method is still one of our favorites, but needs to be done right. Take care to use clean, dry fingers when dipping into your eyeshadow, and don’t pull or tug the skin of the eyes when applying. Try patting motions with your fingertips to apply, and gentle tapping to blend. Wash your fingers between each product, and clean up any edges with a fluffy crease brush. The fingers method works great for cream shadows, or for applying a pop of shimmer at the center of the lid.
