Material Worlds Fashion Show | Pittsburgh

Screen Shot 2017-03-28 at 8.12.54 AMMore please. More please. More please. ‘Nuff said.

Wow did my gal pals and I have a blast at the Material Worlds Fashion Show!! As I said: MORE PLEASE! It’s so exciting for those of us that appreciate fashion watch as Pittsburgh takes a few steps towards its place in the fashion world. To that I say: MORE PLEASE!

I knew once the Iris Van Herpen exhibition got picked up by the CMOA there were going to be some fun events in collaboration with her work. And I was right! I was able to take my time and peruse all of Herpen’s stunning and artful creations. I attended an all-girls, all-fun beauty event at the Gilded Girl Beauty Emporium in collaboration with the CMOA, in which I was able to learn a new makeup technique that I used for my look at the runway show.

And then there was the runway show. What. A. Night.

And I’m not too shy to share with you that myself and my 2 gal pals, Mae and Lee Ann, were lucky enough to have a photograph taken of us featured in the SEEN review the next day! Yeah, baby…

And then the fashion show began! These brave and creative designers had 3 weeks (3!!!) to not only come up with designs but put them together and get them down the runway. All were amazing, but I’d have to say my faves were tied for their creativity and artistic approach. Atticus Adams‘ designs floated down the runway with his metal fiber creations. You would think these creations were inspired by Herpen’s metal fiber designs but you’d be wrong; this is Adams’ signature material in his sculptures and installations and I can’t tell you how much I loved his work. So thoughtful, creative and certainly fashion-forward. I’m just going to apologize right now for my photos (I even stole one from Mae). I promised myself I would not take a camera because I really wanted to enjoy myself so I only used my iPhone.

The other designer I fell in love with was Rachel Muse. Looking at her work you would not be surprised to hear that she’s a student at CMU majoring in architecture. Her creations were just so coooooool. I had about a million different ideas pop through my mind of how I would photograph them, and the same for Adams’ creation as well. Gosh would I have a field day. Yes, that’s wood you see.

The other designers brought their very best to shine as well. Lea Albaugh, Memphis George, Stephanie Moye, Brandon Darreff and Zain Islam-Hashmi, Sarah Jane Sindler, Richard Chou and Chengcheng Zhao, Julianne D’Errico, So-Hee Woo each showed up to play hard, and play hard they did.

Here are a few more fun photos from the night…

OK…these women. I want to be them when I grow up! You can’t see the details of their outfits but trust me, they were divine.Material Worlds Fashion Show Pittsburgh-002Material Worlds Fashion Show Pittsburgh-005Material Worlds Fashion Show Pittsburgh-003Material Worlds Fashion Show Pittsburgh-004

Adore Me | How to Make Your Boudoir Session a Raging Success

Pittsburgh Boudoir Photographer | Elizabeth Craig Photography-017Recently, I received an invitation from Adore Me to collaborate on a blog post that dives a bit deeper into how I help my clients rock out their sessions. Of course I accepted that invitation with gusto! They’re lingerie pieces are a fan fave of my clients so it seemed like a great way to share our combined message of self-love, confidence and general kicking of butt for those of us of the female persuasion.

I really loved that Adore Me wanted to share in my mantra for my business, which is love yourself, take care of yourself and, yes, treat yourself to luxuries that promote confidence in yourself. They understand that women want to feel sexy and one way to do that is to reserve a boudoir session for yourself with a photographer that understands women (ahem….that would be me, in case I needed to spell that out for you). Once you make that decision to pamper yourself a bit, preparing for it is almost as much fun as the session itself.

Elizabeth Craig - Adore Me Custom Boudoir - 2

I spend a lot of time helping my clients prepare for their sessions because it not only sets them up for success on their session day, but also knowing ahead of time what to expect is a great way to stomp those nerves down a bit.

Those nerves always seem to rear their ugly head again right before we start shooting. And no wonder! It’s not easy stockpiling up the courage it takes to stand in front of a camera and be vulnerable. But there’s some good news here: it’s not your job to know what to do in front of the camera; it’s your job to listen to me and do what I tell you to do in front of that camera. If you can do that, you’re gonna love your photos.

So, how do I get my clients to give me what I need? How do I infuse confidence into my clients to help them feel sexy and powerful throughout their shoot? Good questions. Let me answer that for you.

~I bond with you before your session. I do this by encouraging constant communication with you. I am there 24 hours a day to answer questions and build the dream you want right alongside you.

~I prepare you. I have every piece of information you need to make your session a success before you even walk into my studio.

~I welcome you. I am there to greet you at my door, introduce you to my space and also introduce you to my stylist, with whom you will spend about an hour+ with, developing your own bond with her. She is there to cool your nerves, make you feel comfortable and when you see your final transformation, to feel like a true badass.

~I talk with you. I will have a talk with you before I even pick up my camera. That talk involves me telling you it’s ok to let your walls down with me, to be vulnerable and allow that sexy, beautiful, powerful woman inside to come out, because she is in a safe place where expressing herself is her only job.

~I show you exactly what I want. There is nothing I will make you do in my studio that I won’t do with you. I show you the poses I want with my own body. I show you the expressions I want with my own face. I am there to act as your visual guide and we do everything together, just like best friends should.

~I listen to you. Not only do I listen with my ears, but I listen with my eyes. I know when you’re feeling a bit insecure. I can feel when you don’t trust me and in those moments I cheer you on and help you to fully believe that you got this. I am your biggest fan of the day, girl. Trust me and everything is going to be exactly what you want it to be.

~I get excited with you. I see those photos on the back of my camera and could squeal with glee. And when I show you those photos on the back of my camera, you get to see that YES, you can do this, you are doing this and you are here for your reckoning with yo-self.

~I believe in you. And that’s the truth and my clients know it. I have never ever once had a client walk in my studio with all the confidence in the world. I understand that this is likely a first for you and that you don’t know what you’re doing. The one thing I am super duper good at is making you feel at home and comfortable with me. I am here to be your guide, your cheerleader, your teacher and your friend…and I do those things well, and it’s not because I’m a good actor. I do actually believe in each of my clients and I have full faith that you can not only knock a session out of the park, but that you will enjoy every moment of it. I believe you will revisit your experience with love and joy every time you look at your photos, and, based on what I know about my history in my business, you will even likely come back for another session because you want that feeling of love, friendship, confidence, power and sexy all over again.

You may tiptoe into my studio, but I know for a fact you will runway-walk back out at the end of our day together. While you’re still considering, I’ll go ahead and get busy building that runway…

It’s All in the Details | Shady Elms Farm | Pittsburgh Wedding Photographers

Shady Elms Farm Weddings-001Gosh…the details. I can’t tell you how much I enjoy the little details in a wedding day. John and I got married in Vermont. In attendance was the minister and the photographer…and us. I did wear a modest wedding dress and John wore his best suit, but I’m sure you can guess that details were not a part of our day. Even my bouquet was made, by me, from an arrangement of congratulatory flowers my friend sent as a surprise. It was simply magical.

But yes, I do live vicariously through my brides. And this bride was one for the books. Just LOOK at all of the details from this day. I know florals are not every couple’s priority but can I just say how much I appreciate a couple that makes it a priority?? If you’ve never had the pleasure of attending a wedding at Shady Elms Farm I hope you do someday. It’s such a romantic setting and as you can see, for this particular wedding the florals just topped off the whole look for the day.

Don’t miss the other details though! Absolutely nothing was missed here so let your eyes have a bit of a feast today!Shady Elms Farm Weddings-002Shady Elms Farm Weddings-003Shady Elms Farm Weddings-004Shady Elms Farm Weddings-005Shady Elms Farm Weddings-006Shady Elms Farm Weddings-007Shady Elms Farm Weddings-008Shady Elms Farm Weddings-009Shady Elms Farm Weddings-010Shady Elms Farm Weddings-011Shady Elms Farm Weddings-012Shady Elms Farm Weddings-013Shady Elms Farm Weddings-014Shady Elms Farm Weddings-015Shady Elms Farm Weddings-016Shady Elms Farm Weddings-017Shady Elms Farm Weddings-018Shady Elms Farm Weddings-019Shady Elms Farm Weddings-020Shady Elms Farm Weddings-021Shady Elms Farm Weddings-022Shady Elms Farm Weddings-023Shady Elms Farm Weddings-024Shady Elms Farm Weddings-025Shady Elms Farm Weddings-026Shady Elms Farm Weddings-027Shady Elms Farm Weddings-028Shady Elms Farm Weddings-029Shady Elms Farm Weddings-030Shady Elms Farm Weddings-031Shady Elms Farm Weddings-032Shady Elms Farm Weddings-033Shady Elms Farm Weddings-034Shady Elms Farm Weddings-035Shady Elms Farm Weddings-036Shady Elms Farm Weddings-037Shady Elms Farm Weddings-038Shady Elms Farm Weddings-039Shady Elms Farm Weddings-040Shady Elms Farm Weddings-041Shady Elms Farm Weddings-042Shady Elms Farm Weddings-043Shady Elms Farm Weddings-044Shady Elms Farm Weddings-045Shady Elms Farm Weddings-046Shady Elms Farm Weddings-047Shady Elms Farm Weddings-048Shady Elms Farm Weddings-049Shady Elms Farm Weddings-050Shady Elms Farm Weddings-051Shady Elms Farm Weddings-053Shady Elms Farm Weddings-054Shady Elms Farm Weddings-055Shady Elms Farm Weddings-056Shady Elms Farm Weddings-057Shady Elms Farm Weddings-058Shady Elms Farm Weddings-059Shady Elms Farm Weddings-060Shady Elms Farm Weddings-052Shady Elms Farm Weddings-061Shady Elms Farm Weddings-062Shady Elms Farm Weddings-063Shady Elms Farm Weddings-064Shady Elms Farm Weddings-065Shady Elms Farm Weddings-066Shady Elms Farm Weddings-067Shady Elms Farm Weddings-068Shady Elms Farm Weddings-069Shady Elms Farm Weddings-070Shady Elms Farm Weddings-071Shady Elms Farm Weddings-072Shady Elms Farm Weddings-076Shady Elms Farm Weddings-074Shady Elms Farm Weddings-073Shady Elms Farm Weddings-075Shady Elms Farm Weddings-077Shady Elms Farm Weddings-078Shady Elms Farm Weddings-079Shady Elms Farm Weddings-080Shady Elms Farm Weddings-081Shady Elms Farm Weddings-082Shady Elms Farm Weddings-083Shady Elms Farm Weddings-084Shady Elms Farm Weddings-085Shady Elms Farm Weddings-086Shady Elms Farm Weddings-087Shady Elms Farm Weddings-088Shady Elms Farm Weddings-089Shady Elms Farm Weddings-090Shady Elms Farm Weddings-091Shady Elms Farm Weddings-092Shady Elms Farm Weddings-093Shady Elms Farm Weddings-094Shady Elms Farm Weddings-095Shady Elms Farm Weddings-096Shady Elms Farm Weddings-097Shady Elms Farm Weddings-098Shady Elms Farm Weddings-099Shady Elms Farm Weddings-100Shady Elms Farm Weddings-101Shady Elms Farm Weddings-102Shady Elms Farm Weddings-103Shady Elms Farm Weddings-104Shady Elms Farm Weddings-105Shady Elms Farm Weddings-106Shady Elms Farm Weddings-107Shady Elms Farm Weddings-108Shady Elms Farm Weddings-109Shady Elms Farm Weddings-110Shady Elms Farm Weddings-111Shady Elms Farm Weddings-112Shady Elms Farm Weddings-113Shady Elms Farm Weddings-114Shady Elms Farm Weddings-115Shady Elms Farm Weddings-116Shady Elms Farm Weddings-117Shady Elms Farm Weddings-118Shady Elms Farm Weddings-119Shady Elms Farm Weddings-120Shady Elms Farm Weddings-121Shady Elms Farm Weddings-122Shady Elms Farm Weddings-123Shady Elms Farm Weddings-124Shady Elms Farm Weddings-125Shady Elms Farm Weddings-126Shady Elms Farm Weddings-127Shady Elms Farm Weddings-128Shady Elms Farm Weddings-129Shady Elms Farm Weddings-130Shady Elms Farm Weddings-131Shady Elms Farm Weddings-132Shady Elms Farm Weddings-133

Watch Me on KDKA’s Pittsburgh Today Live!

Screen Shot 2017-03-23 at 8.33.25 AMLet me start off by saying how incredibly grateful I am for such a wonderful opportunity that was brought my way. A huge Thank You to Dave Forstate for seeing a story in my work and making that story come to life (yep…that’s the link to the actual segment). A huge Thank You to KDKA’s Pittsburgh Today Live show for giving that story a platform to reach tons of women and share the message of self-love, confidence and empowerment. I cannot thank you each enough for allowing words that I have been speaking for years to reach so many more women in 5 minutes than I could in 7 years. Lastly, a ginormous thank you to Lee Ann, of At Home Beauty, for lending your awesome talents to me and making our muse, Christina, look so incredible for her transformation. Deep, deep bows of gratitude to every person that was any part of this.

So a bit about how this all came together. I received an email in early February from Dave Forstate, who is an Emmy award-winning feature photojournalist for KDKA and WQED. In the email he discussed my Before & After gallery and that he really wanted to do a film/interview on the transformations for a potential Valentine’s Day feature. After I picked my jaw up off the floor, I contacted him back and we quickly put together a shoot at my studio so that we could get the film moving along. As we were going through our day and Dave continued to ask me questions to get my answers on film, the story began to take on another life, more about how I use my photography as a platform to help women feel confident, empowered and beautiful. I was lucky enough that Dave saw a bigger story and soon after, the producer at Pittsburgh Today Live saw that story as well, and soon scheduled it for that show.

I will tell you that yesterday was such an amazing day. Not only seeing the final segment on TV, but more importantly watching a message that I’ve been trying so hard to get out into the world take on a life of its own. If this segment helps one woman believe that she is a powerful, significant and beautiful person in this world then that segment did its full job.

I was also over-the-moon-thrilled with the response. So many past clients commented on their past sessions with me, confirming the message that has become my mantra, and so many other people have reached out to comment on that mantra and its positivity for a population that needs it most. I thank each of you for sharing your stories, your experiences with me and your affirmations about self-love and the importance of women uplifting other women. What a fine day it was.

And lastly, I want to give a shout out full of love for my clients. It’s because of each and every one of you that I have been able to give my message life. If it weren’t for all of you, I wouldn’t have had this opportunity and I wouldn’t be able to live my life every single day doing exactly what I love. Go ahead…take a moment and pat your own back. You deserve it.

No Regrets

Pittsburgh Fashion Boudoir Photographer-1That’s a slogan we’ve heard pretty much all of our lives. Live your life with no regrets. At the end of your life you don’t want any regrets. Regret nothing. But we do. I’m pretty sure most, if not all, of us can think of a few regrets sprinkled throughout our lives.

Interestingly, two of the most cited regrets people talk about is (1). missed opportunities in the realm of love (I should’ve asked her out. I should’ve said yes when he asked me out. I wonder what would’ve happened if I had said yes…or no) and (2). purchases. That’s right: purchasing stuff is an ongoing and consistent occurrence, yet it results in the most amount of regret.

Wanna know what has been cited as the one thing that brings the least amount of regret? Experiences. Yep…you can’t buy your way to happiness with piles of crap, but you can hop, skip and jump your way to happiness with loads of experiences.

Does this come as a surprise? For some, yes. For others, nope. I learned this lesson pretty early on and I’m so much the better for it. I don’t have a fancy car, a giant home, a closet full of designer stuff…but I do have an absolute treasure trove of memories, photographs, nights reminiscing, and even a time capsule I’ve worked on since our daughter’s birth, of the most meaningful experiences in our lives as a family, and my life as an individual.

I mean, think about it: when you consider what’s important to you, what will go down in history inside your heart, I’m betting it’s not the $12,000 couch you just had to have because it complimented the $8,000 vase (that eventually got knocked over and shattered into a million pieces, which led to tears, screaming and the ensuing battle with your home owner’s insurance). It’s the moments, the milestones, the celebrations. It’s those acts of living you invested your soul into that you laugh about, talk about with misty eyes and think about when the going gets tough. It’s life my friends.

So what am I getting at?? I think you know, but let me spell it out. Women are starting to realize the value in investing in themselves, and this is really exciting. Time and time again I have had the pleasure of opening emails from my wonderful and brilliant clients thanking me to the high heavens for the experience the I created for them, and enjoyed with them.

And that, my lovely ladies, is where my heart rests. It rests in a place where one woman understands the need for other women to express, celebrate, love, embrace and have a reckoning with their true Self. That understanding leads to the building of a dream and then setting the stage to watch that dream to come to life in the form of an experience that is for, and only for, You.

And here’s the best part, my gorgeous gals. That experience gets to live on, and on, and on, and….you get it. And here’s why. Because you have the physical history of that experience that will live on forever. Not only will you be able to revisit, reminisce and relive that experience over and over ever single time you look at those photographs, but you will have created a true legacy that will live on for, hopefully, endless generations. AND you will have started the foundation to teach any young girl being raised in your sphere that she is important. She is worthy. She is magnificent, and celebrating that magnificence is imperative and should be a regular part of her life.

Because here’s the thing: if we don’t celebrate ourselves, why should anyone else?

Falling in Love with You | Small Intimate Weddings | Pittsburgh

Pittsburgh Small Weddings | Churview Farm-15Yes, that is correct. I have yet another absolutely stunning, breathtaking small wedding for you to feast your eyes upon today. This wedding was so chalk full of details I don’t even know where to begin. Just LOOK at those florals designed by Mt. Lebanon Floral! So creative and simply gorgeous!

The Transformation

Pittsburgh Before & After Beauty Boudoir Photography-2It never ceases to amaze me when I see the sheer delight, surprise and boost of pure “I love myself!” look in the eyes of a woman that has undergone a makeover in my studio. It’s probably one of the most fun moments for me during a session day. The look of utter disbelief, that then turns into a “Hell yeah!! That’s ME!” is exactly why I do what I do.

Pittsburgh Before & After Beauty Boudoir Photography-3Pittsburgh Before & After Beauty Boudoir Photography-4Pittsburgh Before & After Beauty Boudoir Photography-5

I’d like to say that it’s all for my clients, but honestly it’s a big help to me as well because once a woman sees herself for the first time after her transformation, that boost of confidence is exactly what I need for them to really believe that they can do this. They can have the time of their lives, feel beautiful and help me to create everlasting photographs that they can have forever. So, it’s a bit selfish…but I’m sure you’ll forgive me.

Yes, you…sitting on your computer looking at these women wishing you were in my studio right now.

I’m waiting….
