Graduation – Congrats, Class of 2013

Graduation is a time to reflect on what others/yourself have accomplished. It is a time to see how your first baby girl has grown to be a young woman and wonder where all the years have gone. I think it can be hard for parents, well, speaking for myself anyway, because we wish we could go back and reclaim some of that time to do it over with these children of ours.

But as a parent, I also gush on how much my daughter (this year) has accomplished in these years in school. Feels like only yesterday she was bringing me dandelions and drawing stick figures with no necks and round bodies. Now she’s drawing commissioned work for others and being paid for the talent that God has given her.

We celebrated the graduations of many of her friends this month. Alaska has graduations and end of the school year in May as our summers are short. Even though this year we had snow the day before and day of my daughter’s grad party. But the hearty Alaskans that we are, didn’t stop others from coming out and celebrating with us.

Couture Fashion Show Recap

My friend, Jess Jennings, with Simply Creative Photography coordinated a 2nd annual Couture Fashion Show held at Community Covenant Church in Eagle River on May 11, 2013. This is a bit longer of a blog post, but I think you’ll enjoy it.

2013-05-11 Couture Fashion Show-WoldsPhotoArts 2328-2.jpg

The show was to raise money for Heart to Heart Pregnancy Resource Center in Eagle River. They are an independent prenancy/child resource for woman/teens/etc. If you need information, pregnancy test, clothing, baby items, they are a non-profit organization.

Each model had to have a sponsor (personal or business). This money was given to Heart to Heart. The ladies/models were to create clothing from recyclable materials. Each one had a unique look and a story to tell. It was such a pleasure to collaborate and photograph these ladies on the runway. (Be sure to visit Wold’s Photo Arts on FB along with Simply Creative Photography, Rachel Lynn Photography, Van Weel Photography, Heart to Heart Pregnancy Resource Center and Couture Fashion Show–page and not event–for next year’s show.) Each model was assigned a hair stylist/make-up artist to complete their look.

First up is MaKayla whose dress was designed by Jess Jennings. Sponsor was Simply Creative Photography. Hair & make-up by Vibe Styling Salon.
