Brendalee contacted me last year to schedule a Desire Portrait session but due to many attempts we were not able to pin down a date until recently. Her friend Jimmie was in town from Tennessee so she wanted to surprise and treat her to a session as well. I am posting some before and after photos of each Brendalee and Jimmie. Of course we all had great fun and the pictures turned out wonderful.
Ruth booked a Desire Portrait session with me to give to her husband an album of her beautiful photos on their anniversary. From the beginning I praised her for taking the step to book this session. I hear so many women say “I have always wanted to do a session like this but…….” and then comes the excuses. They will say, I’m too fat, need to lose 10 lbs or more, too old, I’m not sexy etc. etc. None of these things matter. All women are beautiful and a session like this should be on every woman’s bucket list, no matter what. These sessions a styled specific to you and what You are wanting and fits our comfort level. You get professional hair and makeup and I will guide you with posing and lighting that will reveal your inner and outer beauty. So yes, I praised Ruth for braving these excuses and fears and did this for her husband but I have to say every women I have photographed have had an amazing experience. I can’t tell you how exhilarating it is for me to see how these women blossom and become a beautiful powerful woman before my eyes. Whew! I love it!
I did a conceptual photo session with one of my high school seniors with the idea of “Light and Dark”. We had so much fun even though it was a cold and rainy day. She was a real trooper putting up with the weather and me in order to get these photos. I made the flower and stick head pieces and was really excited to use them in this session. There is beauty in all things and I love to capture beauty wherever I find it. I styled the session and the makeup was done by Jackie Holden.
