When vacation ends, do you ever look through your photos only to realize that you’re not in ANY of them?! I know I have. It’s almost like I wasn’t even there. I frequently tell my husband and son to pose in front of a beautiful sunset on the beach or maybe our front porch, but I am always the one behind the camera and the end result is a stack of memories featuring everyone but me.
This problem is highlighted every year when we start planning our annual Christmas card. I review pictures from family gatherings and trips and find the only photos including me are selfies. I took everything else.
It’s time to for a change!
You don’t need a professional photographer to take part. Check out my last blog post with FWTX Magazine Senior Staff Photographer, Olaf Growald, to find tips and tricks for taking the best smartphone photos.
1. POST a picture with you and family, friends, dog, etc. The where doesn’t matter, as long as you are in the picture.
3. Use the HASHTAG #GetInThePic2019 in your caption.
4. Receive a bonus entry if you are wearing/using any AlanaKayART products in your pic.
Good luck to all! This contest may only have one prize, but when we get in the pic, we all win. We are superhero women and deserve to be noticed, recognized and remembered!
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.
