Ever had an idea and didn't really know where to start? Trust me, you're not alone. There's plenty of times when I knew exactly what I wanted to do, but didn't have a single idea on how to get started, what I would need, nor when I would actually do it. This is how my sister felt about modeling.
After the birth of her daughter, she knew her long-time dream of modeling had to become a reality. After weeks and weeks of planning and preparation, and rescheduling, Ty and I were able to hit the photo studio and practice around a bit. We started with a plain white background and a simple white spaghetti strapped romper to get warmed up. When asked to give me "attentive" and "innocent", she was able to pose beautifully for the camera.
After a while, we moved from plain to extraordinary. We changed outfits a few times, changed backgrounds, changed moods, but kept two things constant: her bubbly personality and her love for color. Interacting with her props and surroundings made for eye catching portraits that she plans to keep and build upon. Once the session was over, she was happier than she was going in to the shoot, and she hadn't even seen the images yet!
"Thank you so much! I really enjoy the direction you gave and you let me be myself! This was so fun."
