So this was a fun craaazy day! Sam and I decided to really test ourselves as superwomen on this day. She had mom duties she didn't want to interrupt of kids swimming lessons, an appointment, a birthday party for 6 adorable little girls, and a get together later that night. No problem to wiggle in a couple of photo shoots into her day, right?? Haha! We pulled it off, getting a glamour shoot, a family shoot, and a little mini shoot for her daughter in, not to mention that we also did mini photo shoots and video for the birthday party. And the sad fact that one of her daughters Grace, also got sick, which was super sad because she missed a good portion of the fun at the birthday and you can imagine how she felt about posing for family pictures, poor thing! Normally I strongly suggest using this shoot as a time to slow down, pamper yourself, and get in touch with your beautiful feminine side with a low key evening out with your sweetheart, but I'm pretty dang proud that we juggled it all and got such beautiful photos of Sam and her kids to give her husband on Father's Day just a week later. And isn't that just so typical of a mom and wife, trying to fit it all in and totally knocking it all off her list?! I love that she reported back how choked up he got when he saw the photos (well, yes, I can see that....he has a beautiful family and obviously knows how blessed he is!). He is an extremely talented photographer, so that means even more to me. Big thank you to Charity Fales, Hair and Makeup Artist. First time working with her and didn't she do a great job?! And if you're curious about the party, (or ever in the need for a carefree pampering princess party for the mini you in your life), check out the video of Parlez Vous Parties that made her daughter's birthday party so carefree that she was able to accomplish so many other things that day.

This is Rachel. I absolutely loved this shoot. Everything came together so well and we were able to create some gorgeous images. I am so over the top with this shoot, that I have had a really hard time choosing my favorites. Why was this shoot so awesome?? Several reasons, aside from the fact that Rachel is obviously a naturally gorgeous woman. But that's not what makes a successful shoot. First, we consulted with eachother about what Rachel envisioned. That can be hard to determine if you haven't had one of these sessions before! I had some ideas and I have a Pinterest board where Rachel and I were able to pin, view, and comment on ideas we were both seeing and getting inspiration from. That gets the ball rolling in getting excited and creative about the shoot. We start thinking about wardrobe, hair, makeup, posing, locations, etc. Rachel came with alot ALOT of clothes and accessories. I love that! I also have a wardrobe for clients to borrow from. We started pulling together the looks we've already decided on with some more options for last minute ideas. Together, we had more than enough clothes and accessories to give her some variety with different looks. I love the texture of the sweater with a natural and neutral look. Rachel looks stunning in her red dress. My red lipstick was a must for this look as well as giving her a more dramatic look for the rest of her makeup. The gold dress was also pulled from the studio wardrobe. I love this elegant look how the color/tones work for her. We had so much more than we needed, but we kept shooting and changing until time ran out. Rachel was prepared and we knew what we wanted to achieve which made for a much more confident shoot. It didn't take her long to relax and trust me. I give a lot of specific direction on posing. A slight lean or change in a pose can truly subtract at least 10 pounds and completely alter an image. It is not necessary to use a lot of makeup, props, or photoshop if you are being properly directed. My goal is to make each woman look gorgeous like they truly are. I focus on accentuating your positives and diminishing qualities that aren't as flattering in camera. This means you are getting images that reflect YOU, not a super photoshopped version. After the shoot, I touch up minor imperfections and color corrections. I quite often brighten eyes and teeth as well. When makeup hair and posing are nailed, this last step is quite minimal. Rachel should be getting her prints any day. I am thrilled she was so happy with them, and what I love the most is that her family will have these images for generations. She has photos she feels confident and beautiful in. She will exist in these images for her children for many many years. I don't know why, but somewhere in the last generation or so, we stopped getting our portraits taken sometime after our senior photos. These are my absolute favorite shoots. I am not transforming women, I am simply using a camera to mirror what women quite often don't take the time to see in themselves. I hope you enjoy Rachel's 'before' natural beauty shot and her modern magazine styled glam session. _______ _______ _______ _______ _______ ________ _______ ________ ________ ________ ________ __________ ___________ _____________ ______________ _______________ ________________ ________________ _____________ ______________ _____________ ______________ _____________
