After going on vacation, have you looked back at the photos and realized that you’re not in ANY of them?! I know I have! It’s almost like I wasn’t even there. I find myself telling my husband and son to get together in front of a beautiful sunset on the beach or even just on the porch, but I am always the one behind the camera. Eventually, I’ve realized that I’m not in any of the vacation photos.
This becomes especially difficult when it comes to planning the annual Christmas card. I reflect back on social family gatherings and trips and find that the only photos I’m in are selfies; all the other ones I took.
It’s time to change this!
And don’t think you need a professional photographer either! Check out my last blog post with FWTX Magazine Senior Staff Photographer, Olaf Growald about his tips and tricks for the best smartphone photos.
1. POST a picture with you and family, friends, dog, etc. doesn’t matter, as long as you are in the picture.

Good luck to all! No matter the winner, let’s all challenge ourselves to get in the picture! We are superhero women and deserve to be noticed and recognized!
I am a believer in the power of color. I see it every day as an artist, a designer and my self-proclaimed role as color evangelist. I have seen color reconnect people to themselves and others, empower women, and inspire joy. CMYK is the abbreviation for Cyan, Magenta, Yellow and blacK. Combining those four colors allows us to create any color. Bright, dark, bold, subtle, neutral, neon — all of them.
Over the past year, people continue to admire the bold colors and patterns used in AlanaKayART and tell me how great I look, but are concerned that they can’t pull off such vibrant colors.
The goal of CMYKay is to educate you about color and empower you to incorporate it into your home and wardrobe in both big and small ways. It will challenge you creatively and encourage you to have fun with color in new and re-imagined ways, because friend, life in color is way more fun.
