The true beauty actually comes, as I'm sure you know, from within and how do I show you that? Through your eyes! The eyes are the windows to the soul, it really is the truth, without words your eyes can tell a story and it is my job to get your beauty to shine through them. I love it when a client comes in and says 'oh my god I love them' it means I've nailed showing you that beauty. When you look at a portrait of a person where is the first place you look? Eyes, they convey happiness, sadness and a host of other emotions and also your inner beauty.
Sarah came into the studio towards the end of last year. 2016 had seen a lot of changes for her, moving out of a house that had been her home for many years, into a new home and the opportunity for a new beginning. She seized many opportunities in 2016 and a portrait session was one of them. She came in for her session with a great wardrobe selection, which we had spoken about prior to the session and I had a beautiful dress waiting for her to try as well.
Most of my clients are nervous to start their session but that soon disappears as they realise I walk them through everything step by step. I also tell them to be warned, tomorrow you'll feel like you've done a work out because being a model for the day is fun but it's hard work too.
Sarah is a mother to three grown boys. These images are sure to be something they'll appreciate someday as we often find mums hide behind the camera and are rarely in the family day trip pictures. When Sarah came in to view her images she said those words I always hope for, 'oh my god I love them all.' The smile on her face as she looked at each image was beautiful and I know every time she looks at those images at home that same smile will appear. It is the connection to the beauty and you can't help but smile at it.
I would love to photograph every woman and show her the beauty she has inside of her but I am only one photographer, so that goal is perhaps a little bigger than I can manage. But I will happily photograph as many as I can. So if you would like to experience a day of finding your inner beauty then click HERE and let me know how you would like to be photographed and I'll be in touch to let you know more about the experience with me.
