Photo Shoot Results

I shared in an earlier post how I always disliked having my photo taken- and challenging oneself to step outside your comfort zone.  I knew I needed some quality photos of myself, so I turned to the amazing and talented Lauren Jaye of Vida Mia Photography Studio in Folsom, California.

I am so glad I did!  Lauren put me at ease and the photo shoot was fun!  Here are just a couple of pictures taken of me by Lauren:

I’m wrapped in my award winning quilt, In the Garden, which was designed and pieced by Barb Kiehn and freehand quilted by me.  The setting of the shoot was at my home and in my 5 acre land.  Below, I am standing among the oak trees and native weeds grasses.

I highly recommend Lauren Jaye’s photography skill to any blog readers in Northern California.  She loves to work with artists, musicians, and children, in addition to her fabulous avant-garde photography work.   Go check out her portfolio and facebook page.

Here is another image taken of me standing by the stonework of my front door.  If you look closely, you will spot Ethan’s trike and Sarge’s doggie bed:

I hope you have enjoyed seeing what I look like since I have been rather camera shy.    Coming up, I have lots of new teaching venues and events planned for the coming year!  I am working on new eClasses  that will be held on iCreateFlix, so have splurged on a new video equipment and editing software to help with that.    I leave you with one last photo- a candid shot of my being myself and laughing.  Those who know me well know how much I love to laugh:Carlasilly

Hugs to you all, from Carla

  1. Love your photos – Lauren truly brought out your beauty, Carla. I particularly like the first photo with you in the quilt. It was as though the quilt represented a cocoon and as the photos progressed, you emerged and so did your confidence! Fantastic!

    • Linda-Kaye, thank you for your thoughtful and insightful comments. Working with Lauren was an incredible experience for me. I knew I wanted some images with quilts that were not typical, and we just went with it.

    • Thanks, Kay! Btw, congrats on your beautiful quilts and awards! Love the pictures on your blog- your whole cloth quilt is mind blowingly stunning! Tell me more about your design process for that quilt?
      Hugs, Carla
