“Beauty is how you feel inside, and it reflects in your eyes…it is not something physical.” -Sophia Loren
Though I LOVE working with female models, I get so excited to work with random women who know nothing about being in front of the camera. It’s pretty neat watching subjects as the shoot unfolds — going from being timid and insecure in front of the camera to becoming confident and beautiful. That is my very hope with each glamour portrait session I have with any woman. I hope they realize just how special, fearfully and wonderfully made they are by a God who loves them deeply.
Also, when I can just randomly go out and shoot people it’s a great way for me to take a break from the normal sessions (weddings, engagements) and become re-inspired, stretching my creative muscles. I’m hoping to try new things this year for my personal pleasure in photography and so I’m excited about that!
Alysha is a dear, dear friend of mine who moved away this winter and just recently got engaged. She is just a beautiful lady inside and out so I told her I was going to take her portraits. The day I told her I wanted to, we were discussing life over a coffee. Afterwards she and I went to Ross to find her something to wear and found this dress — such a gem! It was the first dress she tried on and it fit so perfectly and looked so amazing on her that we didn’t look any further!
Happy Tuesday. :)
