One More Thing To Be Thankful For

Wow, what a day! First one of my images was featured on The Twelfth Year earlier this afternoon and a little while ago I received some very unexpected news!!
 
I have been fortunate enough to have received one of the highest honors in Senior Photography! With over 8100 submissions world wide I was picked as one of the TOP 100 SENIOR PHOTOGRAPHERS across the globe! I can’t tell you how pumped, shocked and honored I am!!! I never enter contests but at the last minute, with literally only ten 2018-Hot-100-Badgeminutes to spare I decided to enter a few images back in the summer. I won’t know until early December which image was selected, but I’m pretty sure I’ll be going nuts trying to figure out which one it was!
 
Special thanks to the judges for their tireless efforts in this challenging process of going through 8152 entries, and a “SUPER BIG THANKS” to my Senior Models past and present!!!

National Donut Day

Last Friday June 2nd was “National Donut Day”! Yes there is such a thing, in fact there are two every year! This might be a cause for celebration!

The first Friday of every June is National Donut Day. This began in World War I by volunteers who wanted to deliver food to the soldiers on the front lines in France. More than 250 women were sent by the Salvation Army who would use the soldier’s steel helmets to fry the donuts. In 1938, the Salvation Army honored these “doughnut lassies” by recognizing an annual pastry holiday that could also raise awareness and funding for the Salvation Army’s charitable efforts.

The other National Donut Day is November 5th who’s origins can be found in the Ladies’ Home Journal from the 1930’s. If for some reason you happen to miss either of these days don’t worry too much because June 8th is National Jelly-Filled Donut Day, and National Cream-Filled Donut Day is September 14th! So mark those days on your calendar be prepared to celebrate your favorite donut!

In the meantime last Friday (June 2nd) Ashton, Hanna and Valorie volunteered for an impromptu photoshoot and to have a little fun celebrating National Donut Day, below are the images from that shoot!

Lens Flare – Challenge Shoot!

Jim Tincher Photography Senior Model Team is Featured on the Seniors Ignite Website again this month!

It’s true! It never gets old when you received the notice your shoot has been featured! I have an amazing Senior Model Team both collectively and as individuals and group shoots never fail to entertain…..

For August the Senior’s Ignite Challenge was “Lens Flare”….. This was not the shoot I had originally intended but just like the tribal shoot the original version of my planned lens flare shoot had to be rescheduled because of weather. Still wanting to do another group shoot I came up with this idea and afterwards took a chance and submitted it knowing in my mind it wasn’t technically “lens flare”. Surprisingly that worked, maybe because it was different enough. Anyway, we had a blast! But man was it ever hot that night!

Let your little light shine and the whole world shines with you….
