For those that missed my UPDATE post, I’ve since moved to a little town called Sneads Ferry, about 20 minutes outside of Jacksonville, NC…. in other words, we were stationed at Camp Lejeune, NC. I am not currently taking clients but will be shooting to build my portfolio and skill. I am also going to work on blogging and getting into showing emotion via text with the aide of photos.
With that being said, the area in which I live, I would consider it to be a rural community. There is basically one stop light, a food lion, and a CVS surrounded by mom and pop type restaurants and businesses. I find it perfect. I do live in a neighborhood community, that supports a natural wooded feel. In fact, I have woods right next to my house! Since I’ve lived here I’ve had the pleasure of observing countless bugs, such as spiders, wasps, beatles, palmetto, and lightening bugs. We experienced a wild box turtle, fed him strawberries and watched him wonder back to his home. I’ve even seen a real life not in a cage snake! eeeeeeek! Between all of that, I’m trying to push myself in my current neighborhood. To find and explore little places to shoot, where I could walk to/from the session from my home.
I put a casting call on a local yard sale page, where I was messaged by a sweet young mama to be. She really rolled with my spontaneous desire to shoot that night and what I captured I hope that she enjoys and looks back on with a pleasant smile. I asked this mama to be a few little tidbit questions so you can get to know her a little better. Keep these in mind when viewing her photos. You can really use the answers along with the images to get a feel of who she is as a person.
1. WERE YOU NAMED AFTER ANYONE?
I was not named after anyone in particular.
2. WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE LUNCH MEAT?
My favorite lunch meat is definitely ham!
3. WOULD YOU BUNGEE JUMP?
I would absolutely bungee jump but only strapped to a professional!
4. WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE CEREAL?
My favorite cereal would have to be lucky charms. They never get boring.
5. IF YOU WERE A CRAYON, WHAT COLOR WOULD YOU BE?
If I were a crayon, I’d be Caribbean Green from the 120 pack.
6. MOUNTAIN HIDEAWAY OR BEACH HOUSE?
Mountain hideaway any day.
7. LAST MOVIE YOU WATCHED? Critique it!
The last movie I watched was Frozen. I’m happy to see Disney changing the norm and having a female character being the heroine and not the typical ‘saved by a man’ stereotype.
8. SUMMER OR WINTER?
9. WHAT BOOK ARE YOU READING NOW?
I’m not currently reading any books.
10. WHAT COLOR IS YOUR CAR?
My car is burnt orange.
I will be exploring a lot in the coming weeks around my area/neighborhood. Please make sure you are a fan of my Facebook page CrystalBelle Photography to get updates on what type of model call I will be looking for in the near future. All model calls answered will receive digital files and low res watermarked images. (Unless otherwise noted, subject to change at anytime.)
