Have you heard?  Jade Jones, of Fossil Ridge High School, was our Style ReDefined Senior for 2016!  This award is given annually to a high school senior nominated by her peers or teachers as someone who lives her life with a "style" that affects her school and community in a positive way. Now, we are not talking about fashion style - although Jade has an incredible fashion style. We are talking about a person's character, how they treat others, having the confidence to reach out to other students, lifting up those that may be struggling - in other words, a person's "inner style."  

Jade is a perfect example of Style ReDefined.  As the winner, Jade was featured in Twelfth Year Magazine, Vol 4 and you can read more about her story in the print magazine or the online version available here.  The Style ReDefined winner also receives a full Senior Portrait Session from Cindy Short Photography as well as a print package.  Jade's Senior Portrait Session ended up being one of my favorites of all time!

Just being in Jade's presence is enough to make you feel warm and fuzzy inside.  But, as a photographer, I was positively giddy when Jade and her Step Mom decided to do some photos together dressed in vintage clothing.  These two have a special bond and they took my breath away dancing through Old Town Fort Collins!

The second part of Jade's session took place at the scenic Poudre River Stables.  Jade seemed to transform with each apparel change and she rocked them all!  From the country look where she made friends with a horse, to the boho skirt down by a stream, to the prom gown as we headed to sunset, Jade glowed with each new style!  As you can see in her images below, Jade is truly beautiful inside and out!

It is time to nominate a current high school senior for the Style ReDefined Award! This award goes to a current high school senior (class of 2016) in Northern Colorado who has positively affected their school and community by the "Style" that they live their life.  I am not referring to fashion style!  This person has a personal "style" of living and respecting others that improves the entire community.  You can read about last year's Style ReDefined Winner, Chandler Lowham, in Vol 3 of Twelfth Year magazine by clicking here.

What does the Style ReDefined winner receive?  This special person receives a 2 hour portrait session, a styling consultation to plan the session, professional make up application, a print package and a feature in Twelfth Year magazine.  This entire award is valued at $740!  

The idea is to celebrate and share the story of a high school senior who makes a positive difference - perhaps someone who has met with difficult circumstances but still found a way to uplift and encourage others.  You may nominate someone for this honor by clicking clicking here.  Nominations close on February 24, 2016.

I look forward to hearing about the seniors you nominate and meeting the 2016 winner!

I am so thrilled to introduce Chandler Lowham from Fossil Ridge High School as our first Style ReDefined Senior!  Now, I am sure you are wondering what Style ReDefined means so, let me explain.  Back in December of 2014, we began to plan for the Spring 2015 release of Vol. 3 of Twelfth Year magazine.  This issue would feature the CSP 2016 Senior Models wearing apparel and accessories from local stores and boutiques that highlight the year's hottest trends.  With the main focus being fashion, we wanted to include another definition of beauty and style.  At Cindy Short Photography, we have always believed that the most beautiful portraits come from connecting with the subject.  It is this connection that allows the camera to capture the person's true spirit, their authentic beauty.  

So, my studio manager, Tonya and I went to dinner and brainstormed.  The result is Style ReDefined.  It means that true style is not about fashion and the clothes you wear but the way in which you live your life.  True style is seen in how you interact with your peers and community.  True style is seen in the effect you have on those around you.  A Style ReDefined Senior realizes that he or she can make a difference and create change by encouraging and uplifting the people in his or her school and community.

To select the first Style ReDefined Senior, we collected nominations from the current senior class at local schools.  Hearing peers, family and a teacher/track coach talk about Chandler Lowham made the selection easy.  Chandler embodies all of the characteristics that we were seeking.  In fact, three words were repeatedly used to describe Chandler:  Caring, Compassionate and Selfless.  Chandler is known for supporting and encouraging her peers despite her own struggles.  Read more about her perseverance and extraordinary attitude in Twelfth Year magazine by clicking here.

So, of course we had to do a photo session!  After the professional make up application, Chandler and I headed out to Poudre River Stables in Fort Collins.  This down to earth girl just glows in the light of a barn on one of my favorite spots.  Next, we went to Horsetooth Reservoir for a more dramatic backdrop.  Chandler was a great sport when I asked her to hold a scarf that looks like an American flag.  These photos of Chandler will take your breath away, she is truly beautiful in every way.
