Happy Sunday peeps! Today on the blog I'm gonna feature Emma, one of my current Magazine Creatives and content creators.

I have photographed Emma before and so for her birthday celebration, I wanted to try something epic... and she's just as adventurous as I am! Our only goal was no hospital visits as we tried this parachute dress photo session idea (JK, we had safety measures in place, like her mom was there) :-)

Parachute Dress Photo Session

I have been photographing these dresses for almost 10 years and while I always have focused on the "flying" dress part of the parachute dress, I have wanted to try these dresses around water (note, they are 30ft long, so if they get wet, they are to heavy to even carry). However I need to keep them dry for obvious reasons.

This pond is located right out my back door in SRB and I knew Emma would be game to try anything. As a gymnast for most of her life, she has incredible balance - which would come in handy when SHE got the urge to stand up! LOL

Keep scrolling for some teaser images and be sure to watch her teaser video (at the end) with BTS video footage of how we did this amazing photo shoot.

As a photographer in Santa Rosa Beach, I of course love photographing on the beaches for sunset, but did you know that SRB has some gorgeous garden locations for photo sessions. A popular location for our Flying Dress photo sessions is Eden Gardens.

7 Tips for the Selfie Talk with your TWEEN:

  1. Understand digital distortion. Talk through the techniques and tools (like facial makeup, etc) people use to edit their images with their phone and make a list together.

  2. Avoid the comparison trap. When your child is scrolling, remind them that they are seeing someone else's carefully curated highlights and reel. Chat about whether or not social media images are a fair target for compactor (hint: they are not). LOL

  3. Put the 'social' back into social media. Tag about way to use social media more purposefully to actively connect and interact with other people. Be sure to remind them of the dangers and to unfollow accounts that seem sketchy.

  4. Taclke cyberbullying. Developing a plan for how they will cope with bulling online. In addition to telling a trusted adult when they see it, remind them that many social platforms offer functions to hide, block and report bullying online.

  5. Create diverse, real content. Discuss ways to create a more uplifting, diverse and positive online space for themselves and others. Talk about how they can spend more time posting things that reflect their interest, activities with friends and personal qualities that have nothing to do with how they look. Challenge each other to give up filters for a month and see how it makes you feel.

  6. Learn how to spot advertising. With social media influencers becoming more popular than ever, it can be hard to spot what an ad and what's not. Scroll though your child's social media feed together and practice spotting posts that show sponsored content and those that don't.

  7. Log out! Encourage your kids to take occasional breaks from social media if they feel overwhelmed or are not enjoying it. Set screen time limits and take a walk, call a friend, etc - whatever they like doing away from their screen.
