Soft, messy updos at H2O Salon, Urbana IL

This years hair trends are softer, more casual and natural, even when they are updos.  Here are two examples of beautiful soft messy updos from H2O salon located in downtown Urbana IL. Notice the incorporation of braiding as well as curls in the first series of photographs, and off-center swirls in the second series.  A special thanks to these girls for allowing us to photograph their homecoming looks!

Laura Trovillion Photography joins Professional Photographers from the United States, Canada, Spain, Germany, the U.K., Australia and New Zealand to provide

breast cancer patients and survivors free portrait sessions. I Picture Hope is an international association of professional photographers, makeup artists, and stylists founded

in September 2011 by a professional photographer Camille Neighbors of Camille Denae – Portraits Celebrating Beauty in Post Falls, Idaho.

Camilleʼs mother was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2010. “Having someone you love go through something like cancer forces you to see things you might have missed

before,” Camille explained. “I saw such beauty in my mom as she endured treatments, declared a war against cancer, had her grandchildren help shave her hair to make it less scary for them,

and we walked around with our matching shaved heads. At every moment, my mom was beautiful to me. Iʼm blessed that her fight with breast cancer was victorious, and I feel compelled to do something to help other women see beauty in

themselves when breast cancer has threatened to take it from them.   There is no obligation to purchase anything. “Itʼs just our way of saying “You are beautiful. Youʼre still a woman, no matter what cancer has taken from you.”

Bridal Glam the Gown – JaNelle

bridal Glam the Gown blog2 blog3 blog4

 

This is JaNelle. When I announced that I was photographing Glam the Gown Portraits, she contacted me within seconds….”I have only one photo of me in my wedding dress, and everything else is blurry, scenery, or from the knees down. Can you make me beautiful?” Before leaving after her session, she told me that I had made her feel like a queen, and that every bride should feel that way. I think she is beautiful and I am happy that I made her feel beautiful too!

Boudoir….Glam with less clothes!

I am getting inquiries as to whether I shoot boudoir photographs. Yes, to me, boudoir is simply contemporary glamour portraits with less clothes, or at least very different clothes. Every photoshoot is about making women look and feel AMAZING. My hair and makeup stylists are the very best. I will direct you down to your eyebrows to insure that your posing shows off every asset and minimizes any negatives. And then I will sell you amazing photos so that you can always remember that you are an incredible woman! This is a sneak peek from a recent boudoir shoot. She came to me and said that she had always wanted to do something like this and with her 25th wedding anniversary coming up, she has a great reason!  Anniversaries, gifts for a groom or boyfriend or just because you can are all great reasons to have a contemporary glamour or boudoir photoshoot! And when you decide, call me at 217-897-1166 and we will make it incredible!
