Those of you who have been following me know that I've been taking some women's portraiture classes. I've been applying some of the things I've learned on my past sessions, but my ultimate goal is to start offering Women's Glamour & Beauty Portraits to women of all ages.
If you are over 40 you might remember the glamour portraits of the 80's. Well, this is a new modern version. This type of session is designed to bring out the beauty of any woman and starts with a clothing consultation, hair & makeup application, followed by a photography session that utilizes posing techniques designed to make you look your best.
If you are like most women you probably have tons of photos of your kids, your family, and your friends...but you are in very few of those photos. This is a very common situation. Many women tend to avoid being in front of the camera, for various reasons. The sad outcome though is that you do not exist in photographs for your family. It's time to change that and create a beautiful portrait of yourself that you can be proud to hand down to your children.
I'm also in this category. I've struggled with my weight all my life, and as I've gotten older I've avoided having my photo taken. For me, being behind the camera was an easy escape. But now I realize that I don't have any nice photographs of me to pass onto my children. Even though I know better it's still hard for me to photograph myself. I recently lost a little bit of weight, so I decided to take the plunge and photograph myself. These are the first real portraits I've had done of myself since I was in my early 20's. I'm 51 years old. That's far too long!
I'm currently still building my Women's Portrait portfolio, so for a limited time I'm offering a few discounted portfolio building sessions. If you are age 30 or over, and would be interested in taking advantage of this offer please contact me.
