2014 entrepreneur of faith conference : the lions den : 2014 : oklahoma city area photographer : valerie vaughn : withunmind photography

on september 13, the annual entrepreneurs of faith conference will be held at southern nazarene university. i couldn't hope to do it justice to explain the awesome, life changing things that are sure to happen there. check out the website http://www.entrepreneuroffaith.com for detailed information! one component of the conference will be the lions den. it is modeled after the abc show, shark tank. using a selection process (that has already started), 5 entrepreneurs will have the opportunity to pitch their business or business idea to the lions for the chance to win one of 3 grants totaling $5,000 and 1 on 1 mentoring sessions with the lions. sounds like exciting times!! i had the pleasure of shooting four of the eight lions in a special session. the 4 lions pictured, from left to right (in the top photo) are estela hernandez, sean abbananto, mark temple and aprille franks-hunt!

the goodfellows : a family affair : withunmind photography

it was so serendipitous that i ran in to that family. they have introduced me to the wonderful world of essential oils. its really been life changing. it was so my pleasure to be able to photograph them. if i haven't said it before, photography and storytelling and creating, those are my drugs of choice. it gives me a high. it feeds my SOUL! i love that i have the ability to reflect back to my clients the beauty that is them! i left this session on cloud 9 and it still puts a little pep in my step every time i get to look at these images.

love is in the air : engaged! : valerie vaughn : withunmindphotography

get ready for picture overload. i SO SO loved shooting these two. so much fun. so much personality. add in some great light and it was an amazing session!!

challenge : withunmind photography

i want to propose a challenge this morning. a heart challenge. i challenge you to give of yourself by using your time and/or talent for the benefit of another. it can be something big or little, it doesn't have to cost you a thing (it can though) - it just needs to fill a need or make a impact/difference. if you need suggestions i can offer you tons! i know that often times many of us give us our heart - and not for the praise or for a thank you but for the love that we have. well, i want to thank you. do that, and, as my thanks to you for giving of yourself, i will put all of the challenge participants names in a bucket and draw for 3 free mini sessions (to include 3 digital files each). once you're in and have done your deed or deeds, comment below that you're in, then send me an email me at valerie AT withunmindphotography.com to let me know what you've done and i'll add your name to the bucket. i'll draw names on may 3rd. if you're not local, you can still participate - i will offer you a custom digital design service. i'll also be taking the challenge myself; to actively look for ways to give of myself to others! lets go!

what is wednesday : gift prints : withunmind photography

an often asked question when it comes to placing orders is, "what is a gift print?" currently, all of the collections on the price list include gift prints. a gift print is a 5x7, an 8x10 or a set of 8 wallets. for example, if a collection includes 6 gift prints then it is your choice of whatever combination of gift prints you'd like to total to 6 (i.e. 2 8x10, 2 5x7s and 2 sets of wallets or even all 8x10s).

what is wednesday : what is a storyboard (revisited) : withunmind photography

this was actually the first "what is wednesday" feature but it is definitely and often asked question so i felt the need to bring it back for a recap. i think that was definitely a run on sentence! don't jude me! lol

as a photography business, of course you know i offer prints - but what else?? products? services? welcome to "what is...wednesday". today's topic : what is a storyboard?

i LOVE storyboards. storyboards do just that - tell a little story. storyboards include multiple images on one print or canvas. creatively designed. custom art made just for you. 

see. i like to have fun with these. no two are alike! storyboards can be created at just about any size larger than an 8x10. one of my favorite sizes is 10x20. its a nice, long, rectangle shape. each storyboard is mounted on 2mm thick white or black styrene board. this is thin enough to still be framed but nice and sleek to give a modern look when hung or displayed as is (which is my personal choice). storyboards are priced at 1.5x the price of that same print size. for example, an 11x14 print is $55.00 so an 11x14 story board is $82.50 . the current price list (http://www.withunmindphotography.com/price%20list.pdf) has storyboards in artistic, modern and digital collections.
