Double Diamond Photographer of the Year | Silver Image Photography | The Woodlands, TX

Cristie Reddehase

Double Diamond Photographer of the Year
Silver Image Photography
The Woodlands, TX

I am very excited share my 2016 competition images with all my family, friends and clients. A few weeks ago the 2016 Professional Photographers of America International Photographic Competition took place in Atlanta, Georgia. For those of you that are not photographers...this is like the Super Bowl for photographers. Each year, thousands of professional photographers enter thousands of images for a chance to be featured in the exclusive PPA Loan Book, which includes some of the best of the best images in the industry, and earn merits toward one of two photographic degrees - Master of Photography and Master Artist. You can enter up to 8 images a year to be judge. This year there were around 5700 entries and 2428 of those images were excepted as merits into the general collection and 1007 of those entries were accepted into the prestigious Loan Collection and will be published into a book at the end of this year.

I’m super excited that ALL 8 of my images were accepted as merits and ALL 8 were accepted into the Loan Collection, giving me the title of 2016 PPA Double Diamond Photographer of the year. This is not an everyday occurrence...I’m the first female to have achieved this honor and 1 of only 5 people to have ever earned this title. Very, very proud of that! I'm still shocked, surprised, thrilled, humbled, ecstatic, and still in disbelief that I made Double Diamond this year. I’ve dreamed and hoped for this (like every photographer), but I never thought it would come true. I can’t tell you how amazing it is to be a part of this industry and to compete with some of the best photographers. It’s truly an honor. Now to start on next years images!

 I'm also eligible for the following honors, which will be presented at ceremonies during the Imaging USA PPA National Convention in San Antonio, Texas in January 2017:

* Diamond Photographic Artist of the Year: 
Awarded for superior photographic in computer-applied techniques and proficiency. All four of my images were awarded a merit and accepted into the prestigious PPA Loan Collection.

* Diamond Photographer of the Year:
Awarded for photographic excellence. All four of my images were awarded a merit and all four entries were accepted into the prestigious PPA Loan Collection.

* Master Artist Degree:
Awarded for superior photographic skills, which are demonstrated through years of advanced education, service to the industry, and 13 merits earned at PPA International Photographic Competitions.

* Imaging Excellence Award:
PPA's Imaging Excellence Award recognizes those individuals who continue to excel in their profession and succeed in PPA's International Print Competition. To be eligible for this honor, an entrant must hold a Master of Photography or Master Artist degree from PPA and have a minimum of 13 images accepted into the PPA Loan Collection.

Snapchat for Old People | Silver Image Photography | The Woodlands, TX

SNAPCHAT FOR OLD PEOPLE...

I've come to the realization (actually it's been realized for awhile now) that I'm officially getting old. This is the first year to find grey hair (glitter strands), the high school seniors were born the year I graduated, and I had to google "how to use Snapchat" yesterday! That's right...I admit it.

I wanted to see if there's something more to this little yellow ghost. My research didn't lead to any ah-ha moments of enlightenment. I still know the same as what I knew before. (Now there's a sentence to quote me on!) Of course...with that being said, I've got to keep up with all of the young whipper snappers....so here it is...the studio's new snapchat account. I can't promise how diligent I'll be about posting stories for everyone, but I'm going to give it my best.

Follow me and snap me! Is that right? Hmm...maybe I just started a new quote for this decade! Snap Me!

Family Portraits | What to Wear | Silver Image Photography | Spring, TX

Cristie Reddehase

What do I wear for family portraits?

If we had time, we would love to be able to go with each person and help them choose the best clothes for their portraits. Unfortunately, we don't. Don't fear though! We have a few helpful tips that will help you in your wardrobe selection! Keep in mind, clothes are supposed to enhance the photos. Not be a distraction!

  1. You want to coordinate but not match exactly! Choose complementary or analogous colors and mix it up! If everyone wears the same white shirt and blue jeans...it looks a little too matchy-matchy. 
  2.  Solid colors are usually the best choice. If you choose to wear a pattern, make sure it's small...no crazy zebra strips. You don't want to be the only person someone notices when they look at the portrait.
  3. Everyone should know the rule that darker colors make things look smaller. If you are worried about your weight, don't wear a white or neon shirt!
  4. Change up the clothing styles. Have one person wear jeans, one person in a dress, one in khakis, etc.
  5. Don't forget accessories! Jewelry, scarves, hats....
  6. Make sure your shoes match! We don't want crazy colored tennis shoes that don't match anything. The only thing you will notice in the portrait are the neon shoes. So, either dress shoes, casual shoes, or color matching tennis shoes. 
  7. We are creating a piece of art to hang on your wall. Think about where you will be hanging your family portrait. You want to choose clothes that will complement your style and decor. If you don't have anything red in your house, then don't choose red to wear in your family photo. 

We suggest laying everyone's clothes out together, either on the floor or the bed. If there's one item that really seems to stick out...try to find something else.
