Welcome to Colorado Springs Daily Photo!

Hi, I'm Tamera, a professional wedding, portrait and boudoir photographer in Colorado Springs. But this blog isn't about my professional work; no, it's a daily love note to my beautiful city, where I've lived for most of my life. I love it here and I hope you enjoy seeing Colorado Springs through my eyes and lens!

Sunday Style!

Today and the next couple of Sundays I'll be posting fashions from the Women's Resource Agency, whose mission is "to empower women and girls to attain and maintain self-sufficiency and economic independence. At WRA, women and teen girls find the support, training and resources they need to seek employment and to become economically self-sufficient." It's a wonderful organization! My best friend's sister, Paula, volunteers for WRA as an image consultant (you may remember Paula from THIS Sunday Style post). It's her job to assist in putting together professional looking outfits to help launch or further their clients' careers. After being referred by another agency and attending an orientation class about job searching, WRA clients receive a free outfit for job interviews and, once they get a job, they are entitled to four more outfits at no cost over the course of a year. All of the clothes and accessories are donated, and Paula has a wonderful gift for creating great ensembles out of disparate pieces. Consider this business casual look modeled by Mashayla, a grad student who is interning at WRA. I love the cropped jacket and red pumps! And that necklace is vintage. Everything you see here was donated, and their stock changes constantly.

Stay tuned for another WRA Sunday Style post next week! And if you're interested in volunteering or you have some gently used clothing that you'd like to donate, please contact these wonderful people via their website HERE.

Paula's very photogenic!

Thanks for the comment, William! To be clear, in these photos the model is Mashayla (though there is a link to a Sunday Style post featuring Paula, from late 2016). Both of these gorgeous women are indeed quite photogenic!
