D.3 Picture in a Picture

Nothing is worse than having a gorgeous bride and groom and awesome light, and as you're working the 15 minutes for poses....it happens...boom. YOU DRAW A BLANK. It's happened to me more than once, and having a great "go to" pose can get stagnant. Although I'm trying to work on stories and movement with my couples while having fun, it never hurts to have a back-up plan, you know, just in case. Luckily my friend Alicia taught me a trick that would keep me from panicking.  I've done it a few times and although I find previsualizing poses and giving clients "stories" more natural and organic, having help during brain freezes never hurts!  Thanks to Alicia White for this tip!

Man, looks like vlogging is going to put me on trial...I SUREEEEEE go to the beach a lot!  ;)  Speaking of "vlogging", I've given it some thought, and I think I'm going to mix it up these next 30 days and try to incorporate what I love:  storytelling video!  I admire cinema (don't you know I'm a girl who loves all things creative!) and I think some days instead of me just doing what I do best, talking, I will post just some cool videos that I make around the island, which I am excited about because I LOVE LOVE LOVE loveeeee video.  It may not be according to "the rules" but, who follows the rules anyway?  It's what I've been wanting to do, so what better time to do it?  These are the Ashley rules.
