The Lady

When photographing seniors, one of the points I am sure to communicate is my heart to capture the lady emerging from the girl. Our society puts so much emphasis on perfection, looking “hot” and “sexy”, and marketing the female body. I hate this. What happened to class? What happened to being a true lady? What happened to modesty and elegance?

As a mother to two young ladies myself, I know how I want my daughters presented.
I know I want them to be respected, valued and protected. I want them to know their worth.
I want them to understand that when you act like a lady, you are treated like a lady. 

When I stand behind the lens of my camera, I see the young lady in front of me. I see their inner and outer beauty. I see their potential. I see their womanhood. I see their worth. What I see is what I try to show them.

They are beautiful. They are not objects.

They are women.

It’s so exciting to show them just how beautiful they are…to see their eyes light up! It’s nerve wracking to be photographed. I’m reminded of this every time it’s me in front of the camera. When I can put them at ease with a glimpse of what I’m photographing, it changes everything. I watch them visibly relax, bloom and begin to radiate confidence as the session progresses.

The Session:

I’m excited to share Michelle’s sessions with you. Yes, sessions. She booked a summer and a fall session. It was so much fun to build this relationship and to photograph two completely different vibes. Vibrant summer and the rich, warm colors of fall.

Michelle is an avid soccer player, so we incorporated some soccer photos into her fall session. She brought glamour to the soccer field!

Michelle’s sweet personality shines through her photos.

I think she exemplifies her favorite quote perfectly:

Nothing can dim the light that shines from within.
