In 2017 I’ve had the pleasure of capturing contemporary/beauty portraits of several wonderful women. What are contemporary portraits? Well, contemporary portraits are simply images that are beautiful and timeless that will be treasured by your family for generations to come. Images that you can look at and see your beauty, images that give you confidence by showing you how others see you.
I’ve had the honour of photographing several women this year and captured both their inner and outer beauty. I’m humbled by the experience and so grateful that they trusted me to create these images for them. Images that they and their families will want to look at time and time again. A big THANK YOU to all of you!! I will be sharing more about each session soon and hope you will come back to read more about them.
Since doing these sessions, I've had the opportunity to talk to a several other women about the experience and all too often I hear things like:
"I don't like being in front of the camera."
"I need to lose ten pounds first."
"What would I do with a photo of myself?"
To be honest, I’ve said similar things myself in the past.
What I’ve come to realize is that our families don’t care how much we weigh, or about the color of our hair, or our age. We may not know what to do with that photograph but they will cherish it years from now. They will look back on it and be so greatful to have hit.
Reality is that our friends and family want something tangible to take out and look at. Something that they can remember us by. Something they can hold in their hands that they don’t have to search for on an obsolete piece of electronic media.
My goal is to create portraits that women will want to print. Images that they will be proud of and what to share with their families so they can cherish them for generations to come.
