StainColoredThoughts Photography: First Solo and Couple Session


A few weeks ago I had the nervous pleasure of taking on my first Solo/Couple Session. A friend of mine requested some pics to use for her upcoming birthday and also wanted to get in some couple shots with her husband. Originally I had suggested using Forest Park but then realized Lafayette Park would be a better destination for many reasons. First, with this being my first session I didn't want to be overwhelmed and Lord knows going to Forest Park on a Saturday is already insane by itself. You fighting for parking spaces and other venues that might already be going on as well. Not to mention did I say it's a big ass park? Lafayette Park is a beautiful medium size park (compared to Forest Park it might be considered small). So I went a week in advance and cased out the place. I went walking around to find out where I think it would be great to take shots. I took my phone with me to take pictures of the various areas so I would be able to go over them later on and then also put together a Pinterest folder of various poses to look them over.

Two Festivals, One Weekend: St. Louis County Greekfest and St. Louis African Arts Festival 2017





During Memorial Day weekend, there were 2 Festivals. The Greek Festival and the St. Louis African Arts Festival. My mother and I went to the Greeks Art Festival on Friday and went through and picked up some Greek desserts and various Greek main dishes. We checked out the vendors as well but unfortunately had gotten there so early that we found out the entertainment would not start until 6pm. So we ate some food there and then went back home to put the rest of the food in the fridge.

Vintage Market Days Saint Louis - Chesterfield Mall - Spring 2017



So this past Saturday I went to one of my favorite events, the Vintage Market Days of St. Louis. This event happens around twice a year and even though they have moved the days around (used to be Friday, Saturday, & Sundays) I wanted to make sure to make it since this Saturday would be the last day.
