Happy New Year everyone!! 2013 is finally here and I can’t wait to start it off by sharing a project I worked on back in December.
I love working with “real women” to show them how gorgeous they are. That is at the core of what I do. I help women break those ugly lies that they tell themselves. You know the ones I mean, right? “I’m not sexy”, “I could never do that!”, “I need to lose 5 lbs”. Whatever it may be – we all tell ourselves lies, and even worse…we start to believe them! My job is to uncover the truths of women. To show them they are sexy, as is! To build their confidence and of course to change their perspectives.
Because of this, I never really work with models. I decided to fearlessly change my mind in December. See, I was getting bored. Boredom is the kiss of death for us creative types. I needed a challenge and a way to flex my creative muscles. So I decided to design my own shoot start to finish. I found an incredible location, a fun model and I planned the wardrobe myself. I grabbed Diana, my makeup artist and Toni, my hairdresser and off we were to play.
This type of shoot benefits both me and my clients. It helps me learn, grow and get “unbored”. It freshens my outlook and my mind. It’s great for you too, because you can see my vision and maybe even apply it to a shoot for you! This was not done in my studio. My New Year’s resolution is to shoot more for me and push the bounderies. AND to get out of the studio. How amazing would a should be customized for you at a location we choose together? (Just a hint of what is coming for 2013!)
I am going to break up the photos I took into a few blog posts, and today I want to share the black and whites with you. Thank you to Anelisa who did an amazing job modeling. She is gorgeous, sweet and I can’t wait to work with her again.
Happy 2013 Everyone!
