Fashion Files | Teen Trendsetters | Mad for Mod (esty)

Hello! Ingrid here!

Today’s Slice of Style’s Teen Trendsetters is a little late on the seasons, but fortunately the summer weather is sticking around! Either way, in most of the featured outfits, a jacket or tights can be thrown on to transition the look to the upcoming cooler temperatures.

Emil had worked with Lierin before, so it was no surprise when she came to the shoot with her shoot with trendy and stylish outfits. Just by checking out her instagram, you can tell Lierin’s sense of style is amazing! She even is a style guru for @cfashionista on Instagram.

When Lierin and I finally got our schedules to work for her interview, we met at a cute, Christian based coffee shop in Hershey, called Perking Point. What amazed me more than her fun and unique sense of style, was her aspirations to dress cute, but also more conservatively. Lierin noted that with that in mind,  sometimes it can be hard to find clothes. Lierin says, “I look for clothing that I would be comfortable wearing in front of my parents or grandparents.” She tends to go for long skirts and flowy tops and aims to avoid tighter high waisted shorts and low cut shirts.

Obviously everyone has their own interpretation of fashion and different style that make them feel good. Showing skin should not be the only reason someone is confident.  Lierin shared, “I think body confidence is more about being confident in yourself that you don’t have to be too revealing or show too much. I think my focus [with what is wear] is more on how people view me for who I am and not for what I look like.”

The thing I loved most about my conversation with Lierin is that she ultimately recognized there is so much more than what you see on the outside to an individual. She mentioned that it’s really important for the younger generation to understand that there is more to them than the way you dress and look. Overall, “a beautiful heart makes a beautiful person,” Lierin said.

Lierin definitely loves inspiring others with her message of meaningful ways to attain self love. So, if you want to follow her lead, check out her favorite stores, 31 Boutique, run by a sweet girl and her mom, who offer unique, fashion forward items,  “in hopes of encouraging women to become their best self”. In addition, Lieren also loves Francesca’s  which has an aesthetic similar to 31 Boutique.  There is a huge movement in the modest/conservative fashion world to provide some more fashionable clothing options. For those kind  of look Lierin recommends stores like Mikarose Clothing and Sweet Salt Clothing.

Paige | Hershey High School Class of 2018 | Central PA Senior Photographer

Holy smokes. I blinked and we went from June to October.  I’m sure that if I’m feeling that way, for each of my seniors, that feeling of “time is flying by” is exponentially worse.

Back at the beginning of the summer, I had the pleasure of photographing this lovely girl. With a deep love for books, a location where books were central was a priority! Having had another senior who shared the same passion for books, I had the perfect location! However, though I had shot at this location before, with permission, upon arriving for this shoot we did not receive a very warm and welcome reception this time around.

Thanks to the awesomeness of Carlisle Class of 2016, Emma, a fellow book lover, we got the hook up from her boss, Jeff, at Whistlestop Bookshop, to shoot Paige’s session there. This location ended up being perfection as Jeff opened up the second floor of the shop for us to shoot in; it couldn’t have coordinating more perfectly with Paige’s looks.  Here are a few of my favorites and if you’re in Carlisle anytime soon, be sure to make it a point to support our small businesses and visit Jeff and the bookstore cat, Mulan, to get your latest reads!

Here are some of my faves! Enjoy!

Fashion Files | Teen Trendsetters: Fashion On and Off the Field | Central Dauphin High School

Welcome to the first installment of Slice of Style’s Teen Trendsetters! In this series, we are featuring teens around Harrisburg who have their own unique style and want to inspire others! My mission when I came up with this idea is to stick to certain themes that many teens can relate to whether it be body confidence issues, dress code, or like today’s feature, sports!

Emil and I met up with Taylor who is a fierce field hockey player! Her life pretty much revolves around sports, so she switched to cyber school to focus on field hockey which includes traveling around the country with her travel team, Alleycats. Taylor is currently a junior and is already looking at colleges to continue her career. When I asked Taylor how she remains so stylish even though she lives in workout gear most of the time, she said she loves coordinating pieces, like leggings and sports bras or cute tanks and patterned shorts during the season!

Although when she’s off the field, she loves getting dressed up in t-shirt or overall dresses and denim on denim looks. Taylor also loves the althleisure, stylish but sporty trend. What most stood out to me in my interview with Taylor was her biggest tip for teens. She simply said to “not be afraid to be different” and to be original with pops of color and bold patterns.

If you’re inspired by Taylor’s style, you can check out the usual staples like Nike, Adidas, Puma, Under Armour,  Fila. You can also find other atheleisure styles at brands like Nordstroms, Free People , and Bandier.

Stayed turned for more upcoming features and if you have a unique style or killer idea that you think would be a great match for our features, shoot us an email at hello@sliceoflimephotography.com and title SLICE OF STYLE FEATURE.

At Home with the G Family | Washington DC Family Lifestyle Photographer

It’s about time I got back to blogging my family sessions and I shall start with this gem from earlier in the spring when I hit the road to visit with some of my favorite humans. I’ve photographed both of these little munchkins since they came out the womb and am honored to call their mama one of my best friends. When I visited, they were starting to pack up for their move to a new house, so we shot a short session in their yard as they enjoyed their last weeks in their home.

These at home sessions are my absolute favorite and all the “smile and say cheese” pictures in the world could never give me the warm fuzzies like this type of lifestyle family photography does.  Here are some of my faves!

Slice Goes West: Part 2 | Joshua Tree, California | Harrisburg Destination Photographer

I bet you all had started to lose hope of seeing more of my desert trip adventures in Arizona and Joshua Tree back in January. But alas, I assure you, there are a ton more to share!

All in all we crammed in as much shooting as we could because, how can you NOT when you’re staying at a place like this??! Our day of shooting  was broken down into several different looks. We wanted a bohemian editorial vibe throughout each of our shoots and though all the looks were slightly different during parts of our shoots, I love how cohesive they are were with each other!

Trekking cross country with a bunch of clothes was quite the challenge but we are so grateful to Joni Farley and Jean Snyder of Artisan Republic in Elizabethtown, PA who graciously let us borrow so many wonderful, authentically vintage pieces for our shoot! Coupled with pieces from both my girl, Jolene, myself and our models, closets, we pieced together some killer looks that were PERFECTION for the mosaic masterpiece that you will see in each of the images below!

Shout out to the team that helped make all of it happen!!

Hair/MUA: Cara Liedlich  (It was a thrill to FINALLY get to work with my college roomie/BFF Cara who has been based out in LA for the last several years!)

Hair/MUA assistant: Jordan McKenzie

House Mommas/Assistants to the Stars: Lois Beck  & Emilee Kanode

Apparel: Free People, Spell Designs, Vintage pieces, Lulus

Now on to the images! I’ll be headed back out to Joshua Tree in January, so if you’re a senior who REALLY wants something different, hit me up for my Destination Session rates!!!
