Today is an extra special post for me! I want to recognize a special person with extraordinary talent! I get so many compliments on my pictures, but it is truly more than just me. It actually takes two. In order for style to fully appreciated in various media outlets , it is so important to have a photographer that can capture your image and translate into a piece of art, or at least visually appealing. So who's behind my banging pics? None other than my wonderful husband, Timothy Ellis. I'm not a braggy person, but I just can not explain how much I love this man.Not only for his chocolaty goodness , but his undying support of me! When I started getting serious about my style , he was willing to do full on photo shoots with my cell phone....and he only complained a little bit when I would let's do this pose 5 more times. lol From cell pics to an official fancy pants camera (his idea by the way), he has been integral in the evolution of my style. With no camera experience, he studies hours on end and takes courses just to make sure his work is up to par. His commitment is more than admirable.
For all he does and more he deserves a kudos ,which is why I stepped behind the camera and used the skills I learned from my hubby, best friend and partner in crime (lol).I was more than excited to not only style and shoot for him, it felt so official. Menswear, which has definitely stepped up in recent years is just not inexpensive as women's wear which can pose a challenge. Tim is very tall and lean with solid thighs which can sometimes make pant shopping difficult. To accentuate his slender frame, the best jeans for him are the slim fit. The skinny is too skinny, and anything else looks blah. Wheat Timbs are a great staple, but for the days you want a more casual cool look a nice leather boot can really transform your ensemble. Fall and Winter accessories for men include at least the three staples : a wool coat, scarf, and a beard. So Tim is definitely ready! Can we just get into how awesome he is?! Not only does he work full time, but he is a great father, husband, photographer , jewelry designer, beard gang member, and poses like model! For our couple pics, he just uses a tripod and timer....skills! What a man I got! I hope both men and women enjoy this post on menswear, and if so will post more with affordable price points.
