Prom photo shoot

There has been some prom craziness at our house recently; the teenager was thrilled to get the Hugo Boss suit he'd been drooling over ("I actually cried a little when I tried it on, mom"). His good friend finally got to wear the Betsey Johnson dress and shoes (oh, those shoes!!!) she purchased last December for this very occasion. After a day of primping (mostly by her, but a little on his end too), we headed down to Gasworks Park in Seattle to do a mini photo shoot before their dinner reservations. I thought I'd share the fun!

It was a fun way to mark the occasion, but reminded me a lot of doing a wedding shoot. I hope this provides a little inspiration for a fun set of pictures, no matter what the event is!

To frame or not to frame?

I am doing a wedding show this weekend with some awesome vendors at a beautiful venue. The theme we've chosen for our "reception" is English Country Garden, and it's going to be beautiful and classy and full of some awesome, vintage, antique furniture. It's not particularly my style, but it will be elegant and I'm excited to see it all come together.

So. I am struggling with one particular piece of my table display. I have my marketing materials done, my "sign up and win this awesome prize" put together. I have a rough idea of how to put it all together on the beautiful dresser that I get to use (I am seriously in love with this piece!!). But I really, really want to incorporate a little bit of funkiness to my space.

I do, after all, have blue hair these days.

I really feel that this picture totally breaks down the barriers and fits me to a T.

I want to put it in a little 4x6 frame on my table. But, though I can - and often do - swear like a sailor, I'm just not sure this is the right environment for it.

What do you think? Is it okay to swear while trying to attract clients? I can blur the offending word out, but I think the implication is still the same so it might not matter. I just go back and forth. I need some advice.
