A Children's Book Author Confetti Photoshoot with Author Jacqueline Leigh

When I found out that homemade confetti and candy lollipops were going to be included in Jackie's shoot I got SO excited. How fun!! I knew it would be nothing short of adorable and it really was! Jackie's personality really shines in these photos. She is such a sweetie! I am so excited to finally share this post because I think the photos are so awesome and the positive energy behind the shoot is so raw.

Matt and I met Jackie through Cary Living Magazine. She is a contributing writer for Midtown Magazine and Cary Living Magazine and is about to have her first children's book published titled, Time for Bed with Ford and Red, set to release in Summer 2017. How awesome is that!?! This adventurous tale follows a young boy and his stuffed bunny through the exciting world of dreams. This book is a tool to help children disband the anxiety that often comes with the night and darkness.

Jackie had lots of cool ideas for the shoot. She knew she wanted her photoshoot indoors, a simplistic vibe, with childlike props, a white background, and beautiful light. Matt and I knew we could totally deliver her vision to be used in her children's book and on her website. We normally photograph in natural light but this was a really nice change using our indoor lighting setup. Of course, my favorite photos are the ones with confetti. They make me smile! They are so beautiful and I love the contrast between the white background and ivory dress against the vibrant pops of colorful confetti. Perfect! Cheerful is a great word to describe these photos!

I seriously admire people who are passionate about their dreams and who are willing to go to whatever length to get there. There is something so attractive about those kinds of people and Jackie is exactly that person. She has spent years getting this book ready for publication and I believe this author shoot is a celebration and commemoration of that special journey. Congrats Jackie!

I hope you enjoy my favorites from Jackie's shoot. :)
