    Great tips… the deodorant on your face one is a little alarming but sounds like it could really work!

    makeup primer = total face saver! keeps my makeup on my face & not on my lcd screen ;) .

  4. Tara Spradley on said:

    After reading this I decided to try deodorant on the back of my neck because that is where I start sweating the most…my hair which is longest in long time just sits there and the sweating begins. I totally worked. I am going to get my own deodorant labeled for my neck cuz I don’t want to share with my pits. LOL. SO GLAD I READ THIS POST!

    Great advice! I am learning to shoot more for my brand and get my customers excited about jumping on board. All they need is a jumpstart. Thanks for the post!

    This is awesome! The one question I do have as far as creating pdf’s is where to get the images from though? Do you find things from online magazines? Help!

  3. Bliss Goodloe on said:

    Love the idea of showing clients theme options!

  4. Alicia Candelora on said:

    Hi Joy! I use interest and google to gather images of the outfits/props I want to use :)

Stuff We LOVE ~ Instagram

When someone gets an iPhone for the first time and asks me what my favorite app is I don’t just tell them instagram… I practically scream it…. then if they don’t believe me, it’s usually followed by me grabbing their phone, setting up an account for them and then just saying. ┬áTrust me… It’s AMAZING!…

    This is so funny that you posted this today. I JUST got an iPhone on Monday night–my first smartphone. And you better believe that instagram was the first app that I installed. My friends were all on it, and I knew I was missing out :) So happy to be a part of it now. You can find my feed if you want! bethany_chase :) I am following yours already!

  2. Meagan Fisher on said:

    Could not agree more! Instagram is HANDS DOWN my single favorite facet of social media. Maybe its because I see in photographs or am a little voyeuristic (in a non sexual way) or what but I LOVE IT! I too, have ‘met’ amazing ppl through it & its even helped me when I travel by allowing me to ask for local recommendations! You have a great feed & I can’t wait to meet you at the retreat in Oct (another thing I learned about first on IG!) Have a fabulous day!
