Studio photo shoots are nothing new in the Kelley household! Christmas card photos were a BIG deal to my mom. Some years it was the whole family, sometimes just me and my sister, and occasionally our puppy made an appearance. As a little girl, they distracted us with toys and food court meals to get us to smile, but overtime it got easier and more fun! I haven’t been in a photo studio in YEARS, but Blink Inc in Fashion Island has totally reinvented the wheel!
When I arrived for my appointment, I was greeted immediately, check in, and introduced to my photographer- Zo’e Ymajen Fraley. Let me just say, this girl knows fashion photography, how to give direction, and how to make someone feel in the zone! I got a personal tour of the studio including their ultra modern fitting rooms and huge white backdrop. Blink offers studio sessions for any occasion, head shots for models, holiday cards, engagement photos, the possibilities are endless. They encourage props for photo shoots, but I figured my yellow dress was just enough. My shoot lasted roughly 15 minutes and I had over 100 photos to choose from. This company gets speed and convenience in the modern day. Boom, in moments I could view the photos on my phone!
Speaking of my yellow dress, I bought this number from Zara, on sale for $22.90. After styling myself, and others, for years, I have learned that solid colors photograph the strongest against simple backgrounds, especially white. The focus is YOU! Because this cold-shoulder piece was so trendy, I went with classic pearls to accessorize. I was stressing about the right shoe, but my yellow and white platform wedges from BCBGeneration matched perfectly.

In a moment, in the blink of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised incorruptible, and we will be changed.
1 Corinthians 15:52
I love the phrase, ‘In the blink of an eye!’ In a moment, anything can change. In some commentaries, this verse is a symbol for Jesus’s last coming- that when Jesus comes back to Earth, all will change, as believers will be heading home into Heaven. I can’t even fathom how rapidly Jesus’ appearance would alter this planet!
Have a blessed week!
