After spending many a moon teaching the craft of music to students at the University of Wisconsin La Crosse, Karyn Quinn is preparing herself for the next chapter of her life as a full-time professional musician. Though she's been seen performing with local groups around La Crosse, her hopes are to take her beyond the scope of this town into the wild blue yonder. We spent the morning taking shots for her upcoming website and marketing materials and talking about the excitement of the new phase of her existence to come.
Spring is here, and Megan and Kelly from Willow Boutique (based in La Crosse, WI) have some fresh, fun fashion to spruce up your wardrobe. Check them out at: www.shopwillowlax.com
It's important to take departures from what we are asked to do into what we WANT to do and explore. I needed to take some time to play with the effects of mood with color tones. It all begins with asking yourself one simple question: What story am I trying to tell? Wardrobe, physical posing, eye contact, facial expression all play a huge role in storytelling, and the editing in post-production add the finishing touches. Being more moody and dramatic? Use less color and darker tones (blacks, blues). Trying to give off a friendly mood? Pair a smile with saturated tones and brighter hues (reds, oranges). Thanks to model John Neumann for his time and wardrobe.
They've known each other for what seems a lifetime, and now they're tying the knot in June! We played in the bluffs and caught some ice cream and coffee at the Pearl Ice Cream shop downtown La Crosse for this session.
My, what a crazy 15 months it's been since the inception of Dahli.Durley Photography! So much professional and business growth, I don't even know where to start.
After shooting like crazy and rewriting marketing materials and this site a couple of times, I finally feel like I know what I wants this to be about, look like, feel like, just everything! I also have a 2017 goal of actually blogging on the regular, so watch out blog-o-sphere!!
The blog will be a mixture of seniors, of portraits, of headshots/personal branding sessions, of love and weddings, and of my personal projects and thoughts. The blog will be an expression of everything that is me and this business, since in the famous words of Jay-Z, "I'm not a business man, I'm a BUSINESS, man."
Thanks for following me. Thanks for you support. Just thanks for being you.
