As my client I sometimes challenge you. I ask you to go into territory you are not familiar with. Sometimes it can be a trek into the snow, a hike onto uneven ground, or even more, a trip into yourself. I may pose you and have you interact in a way that makes you giggle or blush all to draw something beautiful out of you from the inside, more then just your gorgeous smile and amazing eyes. I will ask you to close your eyes, take a deep breath and then blow it out and let your shoulders sink as you do, now open those eyes right to me. I may tell you to think of something or ask your love to tell you something in your ear that will make you blush and to get that giggle he or she can draw from you. I may tell you to suck in your core and tooch your booty out to give you a sexy curve, or put all your weight into one leg or the other. I may even say something a little inappropriate to make you draw up your eye brows and give me a look of “did she just say that?” and then we will laugh, and snap there is your image. You can sometimes hear me saying, even just to myself,”you look so hot!, you are so gorgeous, you look handsome, that shirt makes your eyes pop, oh my goodness you guys are setting my camera on fire.” All things I say in the moment from an honest place of what I see. But I realize that this type of vulnerability comes from a place of trust between you and I and only once you have opted in for the journey.
I have had numerous amounts of you tell me, “I am not photogenic”, really? Neither am I! So we are in this together. My job is to earn your trust so that you will take a journey with me into a place where you will show me the real you, because that my friend is true beauty. I am not just a photographer taking pretty pictures, but an artist passionate about my craft.
