Coffee Shop

What’s there to do on a boring rainy day? How about grabbing a friend, a book and then spend the afternoon at a coffee shop? Abby and Morgan seemed to make the best of that day even though there were plenty of eyes watching us shoot. The coffee shop was actually packed which made it quite challenging to shoot. It was kinda funny watching the by-standers attempt their poses…. I think secretly they wished their pictures were being taken….

 

 

 

These images were all shot with the available natural light.

Rushing Into The New Year!

Finishing the year on a high note and starting the New Year off & running!

The last two months of 2018 finished on a high note for me and my Senior Photography. I generally don’t enter competitions but on a whim I decided to enter Senior Style Guide’s Hot 100. At the end of August I submitted a few images having few expectations with less than fifteen minutes to spare at the deadline. Once I discovered that globally there were 8152 photographers submitting I lowered my expectations a little more.

On Wednesday November 21st, the day before Thanksgiving I received two notifications. The first notification was from The Twelfth Year, they were featuring one of my images on their site! That was completely out of the blue! About 30 minutes later I received notification that I was selected as one of the Top 100 Senior Photographers Globally! Senior Style Guides “Hot 100”!

I was pretty much at a loss for words in describing how that made me feel, but I was definitely Thankful and it came at a perfect time of reflection and in giving Thanks!

Since then I’ve been fortunate enough to have been featured four more times with the last one being today, New Years Day!

The last shoot of 2018 I did with any of my Senior Model Team members was with Chaney. On December 10th We had a blast shooting several different looks for the Christmas and New Years Holiday’s. From that session we’ve been featured on Senior Muse and Seniors Best! Images from that session are below. If you want to see the other images that have been featured you’ll need to go to my Instagram Page…. @jimtincherphoto

Happy New Year!!!

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!!!
 
One more thing to be Thankful for….

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!

Project Beauty – Adyson

In her own words

 

True Beauty- True beauty is seeing the good in everything including yourself.

image_Adyson_jim tincher photography_project beauty_pictureHow did not wearing any makeup make you feel?

At first I was nervous about the blemishes and marks on my face being shown in the picture but towards the end I was comfortable with it.

Thinking about it, what did your session mean to you?

I felt more like myself, I was able to show my personality.

What are your thoughts or how do you feel about Project Beauty?

I love that these girls were confident enough to do this and it makes me happy to see girls love themselves without makeup.

Has this experience changed how you see yourself?

I don’t wear makeup as much anymore, I don’t see the point in it now.

 

Project Beauty is a no makeup no edit project designed to help girls see themselves as being beautiful just the way they are! Just follow the link to find out more about Project Beauty and how you can take part in this!
