I am so excited to finally blog this session! Charlie has such an awesome personality and an extremely edgy sense of style! He is such an outgoing guy and loved being the center of attention! He was so comfortable in front of the camera, which is great because he wants to pursue a career in acting! We of course had to do a few head shots so he can have then whenever hes trying to get an acting part. Cool right? Did you also see his awesome Range Rover? So many senior guys around Cleveland, MS have really cool cars, it makes me even more excited for more guy senior shoots. I had a blast doing this shoot with Charlie and getting to know him and his future goals!
I am so excited to blog Carson’s senior session. Her session was so fun and energetic. She raided the style closet, and found many cute outfits that fit her style and personality. And did you notice her beautiful red hair?? Her mom and sisters were there and was supporting her the whole time. Her dad even stopped by! Carson was apart of the Senior 19 Team, which i have enjoyed her being apart of it. She is very out going, sweet and supportive towards everyone. She goes to North Sunflower Academy, where she participates in cheer and basketball. I absolutely loved doing this session with her. She has such a unique personality and has such a bright future in front of her.
I have been meaning to write this blog, however it just kept slipping my mind. Finally I have the time.
Recently I had the opportunity to photograph the perfect client, when I say the perfect client I don't mean perfect figure or face, I mean a client that understands why I am a women's portrait photographer, she understood the value of a photograph, she felt empowered and remembered different versions of herself. As women we sometimes work 5 times harder we can do what a man can ( dont worry this isnt a man versus woman blog LOL ) while we are busting our rumps to be mom, business women, and proving that we can do it all often times we as women are left on the back burner, we know how important it is to have photographs so we photograph our spouse, and children. However when was the last time you actually took a day to enjoy yourself? When was the last time you said, " I need to have photographs of myself for my children to remember what I looked like" we don't because we are too busy caring for everyone else that it just slips our mind and BAM here we are 20 years later with a snapchat filter selfie showing our older kids and grandchildren but no real portraits of ourselves. Meghan, she was a business woman, a glam at heart, a rocker, a wife, and a strong woman with an incredible story. Before she even finished her session I knew she was more than a client, she would become a friend. Being a photographer is not simply about snapping photos, it is about creating memories, helping you find yourself, you don't have to glam if you dont want to, you can be a rocker, tomboy, just be you, create memories along the way.
Meghan, I cannot express how much of an honor it was to photograph you, before our session I thought about going back to my day job (Emergency room Registered Nurse). After speaking with you and the way you spoke about how empowering the session was, how it reminded you of all the things you were it created a spark in me that wanted all of my clients to experience this. Thank you for being the perfect client, thank you for seeing the value in professional portraits.
