What Happens When Your Dreams Don't Come True http://FigaroPhotography.com/blog/2018/1/what-happens-when-your-dreams-dont-come-true As I entered into 2017 I knew that this would be the year of a new studio, SUV for the photo booth, and a goal of 40 weddings met. But what do you do when your dreams, that you have prayed and fasted for, don’t come true. You keep standing. The only way I made it through this year was God helping me step by step.  As I reflect back on 2017, I have meet amazing people. God brought revenue in ways that I never imaged. I made amazing connections with churches. I build relationships with people in different industries. I have been blessed to capture two baby boys enter this world and capture the excitement of the families. 

My pray has always been to capture moments for people that always pass by too quickly. This year, I have also had more clients pass away than ever before. Young and old. It hurts like it’s my family. When you walk into the studio you walk into love. We care about getting the photos that you have in your head along with more. 

To the entrepreneur who has a dream, remember this journey isn’t easy, but it’s worth it. It’s days when you won’t make a profit, but you make someones days. To the mother struggling, keep going. Your children are watching you. To the dreamer who feels stuck, don’t give up. Keep working. To the person who feels stuck, identify where you are stuck and change one thing at a time. To the people who is searching for themselves, take your time… it won’t happen overnight, but it will happen. 

Thank YOU for your support this year! You supported a dreamer this year and I can’t say thank you enough. Here’s to capturing more moments that often pass by too quickly.

The Shapes of Beautiful Project - Brittany http://FigaroPhotography.com/blog/2017/10/the-shapes-of-beautiful-project---brittany This project has been on the vision board for about two years now without a name. Recently I had four boudoir sessions that walked out of the studio feeling like a new person. This made me go back to the drawing board and trying to figure out how to work it so that I could empower the women around me. 

Enters The Shape of Beautiful Project. Beauty comes in all shapes and sizes. Often I hear ladies say that they want to do a boudoir session, BUT after they lose 10 more pounds. Do it. Do it NOW. Do it for yourself.

This session triggered some emotions that I never expected. I see the imperfections, but yet I see somethings that I love about myself. I have learned to love me in this moment. It's easy to not take pictures, or take pictures from a certain angle, but this showed me some things that I want to work on and improve. I cant wait to put in the work to do another session in the future to see the difference. 

When I first saw the photos, I saw every stretch mark and cottage cheese dimple in my legs. Then I saw a photo where I felt confident just the way I was. I fell in love. That is the moment that I want every woman to experience. 

It can be difficult to love something that you want to see in a different light. Love your way through it. 

So ladies, you don't have to do this for him, do it for yourself. I can't wait to put my favorite picture on a canvas for my bedroom. If you would like to participate in this project, pick your outfit out. Sign up under book now. $50 will get you one outfit with 10 digital. All I ask is that you release and approve one photo for this project. All other photos are for your eyes only, unless you want to share.

Class of 2007 http://FigaroPhotography.com/blog/2017/10/class-of-2007 TEN YEARS... Wow, I feel old. This year brought so many emotions for me. I wasn't as excited about my class reunion at first, because I wasn't at the place I thought I would have been in 10 years. If you would have asked me in high school, I expected to have my husband on my arm and possibly a child or two. After shifting my mindset, I was excited to enjoy my class. I'm not far from Blanchard, but I rarely see anyone I graduated with other than on social media. The reunion game was awesome and so many people showed up. That made my heart happy. 

I'm so proud of our class. To see all of the accomplishments my classmates have made. To see their beautiful families, and to see everyone working for something in life. Class of 2007, keep going. Keep pushing. Don't stop. 

After seeing so many post from older classes, I pray that our class can support each other better. I pray that we don't let political views stop us from loving each other, and that we don't let a simple post ruin friends.  If y'all need me, call me!!

Uniquely You http://FigaroPhotography.com/blog/2017/10/uniquely-you Grad Sessions are one of my favorite sessions to shoot and look back on years later. As I enter into my 8th year in business, I love seeing my high school graduates graduate from college or get married. I have been blessed to capture one of my very first clients special moments in life. From college graduation to engagement to wedding to boudoir to baby announcement to maternity to live birth to newborn to first birthday and second birthday. There is nothing more enjoyable than being apart of those special moments in life. I'm grateful to my sweet Countess for allowing me to be apart of all of those moments, and prayerfully more to come. 

Grad Session, more specifically high school graduation sessions, allow you to capture the highlights from your high school days. Remember to bring those special items like class ring, letterman jacket, jerseys or special uniforms. After attending my 10 year high school reunion last weekend, I went back to my senior photos and realized I didn't capture any of those things in my photos. I wish I could do a redo. Make your session yours. Prepare for you session days ahead so that you won't forget anything. We have caps and gowns, if you need one. Just let us know.

The Shape of Beautiful Project - ReAzalia http://FigaroPhotography.com/blog/2017/10/the-shape-of-beautiful-project---reazalia Meet the beautiful ReAzalia!

She killed her boudoir session for her first anniversary. My favorite thing about a boudoir session is when my ladies walk out the studio feeling totally different about themselves. 

I love this quote from ReAzalia: As women we all have some insecurities about what our bodies look like, however we have to embrace the bodies and the skin that we are in. We are uniquely and wonderfully made. I came into the boudoir session nervous and uneasy and I left the boudoir session on a high. It’s all about confidence and loving yourself, your curves, your flaws, and all.

Book your session today!

Hello July!! http://FigaroPhotography.com/blog/2017/6/hello-july

July is here! Summer is in full swing! Bring on the barbecues, swim parties, and fireworks!

Being that July is one hottest months of the year, here are a few tips to keep you cool when doing an outdoor session with us:

  • Book your session in the morning or late evening. 
  • Be mindful of what time the sun is supposed to set!
  • Bring water
  • Bring a small towel to dab your face.
  • Wear cool, comfortable clothes.

As the temperatures rise, remember to stay hydrated and out on that sunscreen! We hope you have a safe and fun 4th of July holiday. Lastly, we'd like to thank all of our troops and veterans for your service to our country. God Bless America!

 

Xoxo,

Kiera White

Calling All Seniors! http://FigaroPhotography.com/blog/2017/6/calling-all-seniors Screenshot Before I say anything else, CONGRATS!! One more year and you're done!

As I prepare to begin my senior year of college, I can't help but look back. This time four years ago, I had just received my senior class ring, I was starry eyed and excited to see what the next chapter of life held for me. Senior year went by in the blink of an eye, but one memory that sticks out is taking my senior photos. It was that "Ahhh, I've made it!" moment. It was a feeling a freedom and accomplishment. I had ran my race, and I was crossing the finish line. Every time I pass by those photos, I'm reminded of those feelings, and it encourages me to keep pushing on until I walk across that stage again, this time receiving my college degree. 

I get excited for every senior session that we book. Each person that we capture has that same excitement and feeling of accomplishment that I had when I took my senior photos, and Brittany and I are just as proud as their friends and family. We love helping seniors personalize their session so that when they look at their photos they're reminded not only of this one special moment in their lives, but all of the moments throughout high school that "passed by too quickly."

Making the transition from high school to adulthood is one of the greatest times in your life. No matter, what your next step in life is- whether it be college, technical school, or joining the workforce, this is a time you want to remember. Our Senior Rep program is a great way to get the most bang for your buck when taking senior photos. With this program you get a mini session, a two-hour session, personalized referral cards to give to friends and classmates, a senior rep blog post here on our website, digital copies of your favorite photos to share on social media, and your very own photo app! 

Out of all the decisions you will have to make within the coming months, this is a no brainer! Click here to fill out the Senior Rep application now. 

Again, congratulations on this special time in your life! Keep pushing forward and cross that finish line.

 

Xoxo,

Kiera White

Do Your Research http://FigaroPhotography.com/blog/2017/3/do-your-research Before you book your session, do your research! 

As a photographer, we want to make sure that you LOVE your images. In order to make that happen, you must "stalk" your photographers website or social media. Their personal style will show through. Some photographers are heavy editors while others are light editors. This is important to know when booking. If your photographer is a light editor and you expect them to reshape, airbrush, and swap your body out with a photo you found on Google, you will be disappointed. Also, keep in mind that editing can be expensive due to the level of difficulty and time invested into each image. You can't expect immediate images when editing has to be done.

Check out your photographer, see what their speciality is, and ask questions! 

 

XOXO

Brittany

Loving Reminder http://FigaroPhotography.com/blog/2016/6/loving-reminder Due to the high volume of late and no shows recently, I wanted to remind my current and future valuable customers, to please respect your time, ours, and others. In providing excellent service for everyone, please remember to be on time for your shoot. And if you're running a few minutes late, please notify us, so we can go from there. We understand things come up, and I would hope you understand, that we have a schedule and other loyal customers, who are also depending on punctuality. Also please do not wait until the 11th hour, for rush prints. We will try to do our best, BUT when you wait until the last second, there's no way, we can guarantee lightening fast, instantaneous results. It's a process. Again, please be considerate of and respect everyone's time involved. We would never want to rush a shoot, or be late for another one. As with any respectable and well ran business or organization, it's critical to the success of everyone involved that we make and keep our schedules. I appreciate your attention and help with this timeliness, and look forward to continuing to serve you.

Thanks
Brittany Figaro
