Charlie Reese

Today I am featuring a very special little girl. Charlie Reese, daughter of photographer Takiyah (featured here previously) is probably the most fun toddler I have ever spent time with. Her personality is already so well established and a few minutes around her will have you cracking up or marveling at the thought that surely she has been here before; a previous life, SOMETHING.

From Charlie’s Bio on Tumblr:

Charlie Reese was born one stormy day in August 2009. Her 2 years on Earth have been just as eventful as the date she was born. She booked her first commercial job at 9 months old, and has continued book work with companies such as J.C. Penney and the Army and Air Force Exchange Service. Although still a toddler, Charlie has been noted as being very easy to work with and funny! When she’s not on set, Charlie can be found riding her tricycle, dancing to music, eating strawberries, and  drinking chocolate milk. She aspires to be the world’s first Superhero Rock-star Dinosaur Doctor Princess.

Her resume (also on Tumblr) is pretty impressive too; check her out!

Since Charlie is in the spotlight a lot, it made sense for her mom to want a color analysis done on Charlie. Let’s look at Charlie in cooler colors first. Hold on to your ovaries.

You’re all talking in puppy-coo language aren’t you? I know. Just a gorgeous child. The more vibrant cool colors are really bringing out Charlie’s sparkle. But let’s take a look at Charlie in warmer colors.

Adorable. I just cannot take it. Anyhoo, though of course Charlie is cute in all of these, I think we have a clear winner. Charlie looks vibrant and glowing in the cool, vibrant colors. Charlie is a Winter. I think for special events or auditions, etc. TaKiyah should focus on those tones to dress Charlie. She will be irresistible. As always, I sent TaKiyah a Color Shopping List for Charlie with details on what colors to look for. Keep your eyes open for this little star!

Autumn Yellow

Yellow brings out the glow in warmer-toned people. Pale, banana, electric, lemon, and other light & bright yellows are best suited for Springs. The deeper, vibrant, muted, and other mustardy yellows are where Autumns shine. Since we are now officially in the Autumn season, I wanted to kick it off by focusing on an Autumn color star. These yellows are one of the first ways for me to tell if someone has a warm skin tone. If you are an Autumn (some Springs can shine in these as well), definitely keep an eye out for this color in stores, to incorporate into your wardrobe.

Today I am featuring TaKiyah of Some Sweet Photography. If you need self-portraits done, engagement/bridal, baby shower, newborn, party, family, WHATEVER photos done TaKiyah is your woman.

Before we get all up in her analysis, a note. Sometimes, with some people, if they happen to be wearing the right (or wrong) color, all I need is ONE photo to tell their season. With others, it may take a few photo comparisons to figure it out, but with some people there’s a definite BAM moment.

TaKiyah? BAM.

She’s an Autumn, case closed. *closes piano, leaves*


Ok ok, let’s look at the rest of her photos. But seriously? That mustard color? Do you see the radiance? We have a gotdamned Sun Goddess on our hands. Here are her photos:

Here is her interview:

What color do you wear the most? black…it hides my wobbly bits

What color do you wear the least? red- I think it makes my face redder? I don’t know? Plus my mom had this hang-up when I was growing up about black people wearing red. (red lipstick, eating red watermelon, and drinking red soda)

What color do you feel sexy in? hmmm…I think anything “golden”.

What color do you get the most compliments in? Brown, I think. (I’m actually just thinking about the brown dress I had on yesterday that I got compliments in)

Ok now TaKiyah’s photos and interview are very telling. She feels sexy in anything golden? OH REALLY? *scrolls up* OH OK. *scrolls back down* Aaaannndd she gets compliments in brown. Mm-hmm. Classic Autumn. Most of TaKiyah’s photos are of her in bright, cool colors: blue, fuschia, red, and turquoise. All of them just sit on her, not helping her pay bills, take photos, babysit, nothing. Same with the black. But you start to get a sense of flow when you look at TaKiyah’s photos in the blush/rose-gold, taupe, and of course, mustard yellow. See the difference? TaKiyah is an Autumn.
