Here is another beautiful lady that I recently photographed for The Beauty Project, and another new friend! Please enjoy her story and her gorgeous images.
How old are you? 40!
Are you from Calgary? Yes
Are you married? Yes
Do you have children? Yes
What do you do for a living? I do some admin work for a dental clinic, but mostly manage my home and family.
Have you ever had a portrait session (by yourself) before? No
Why do you want to participate in The Beauty Project? I've seen your portraits...you do beautiful work! I would love to have a portrait of myself that I am in love with, something that makes me feel beautiful.
What does beauty mean to you? When I'm assessing my own beauty, it usually is related to outward apprearance, and primarily is related to weight. For myself, I also fall into the trap of relating my beauty to hair style, make-up, and clothing. I am not nearly so cricital and superficial when looking at the beauty of others...inner beauty shines brightest!
When do you feel the most beautiful? When I have lost some weight, have just gotten my hair done (or have styled it nicely myself), or when I am wearing something I feel is flattering.
What does being a woman mean to you? Being a woman means taking on everything the world has to throw at you, and doing it all with grace and style! Women have so many pressures from so many angles...learning how to juggle them all without losing yourself is a challenge, but one we must rise to!
What do you love about yourself? I love my creative side and my sense of humor. I love my hair, and I love that I'm living out my chosen career as a wife and mom.
Tell me your story! I'm the wife of an amazing man...the love of my life, and mom of 4 beautiful and talented children, age 10 - 22. I was born and raised in Calgary, and have lived in Airdrie for the past ten years. As a family we love camping and water-sports, especially wake-surfing!
Jill it was so great to meet you and have the opportunity to photograph you. Your hair is just incredible!!! and you are truly a beautiful woman. Congratulations on celebrating your 40th birthday. I hope that you love your beautiful portraits as much as I do! Thank you for participating in The Beauty Project.
