This is brand new type of session that I’ve begun offering. I’ve been so humbled by the response to these sessions. It has been amazing experience shooting with these Women, Wives, Mothers, Grandmothers, and Sisters. It is hard to describe these sessions , because more than anything it is about an emotion.
Too often as women, especially as I’ve become a Mother, we’re so inundated by media about what society considers beautiful that we forget that they are all too often wrong. 😉 Yes, Jennifer Aniston, Taylor Swift, Zooey Deschanel, Carrie Underwood, Angelina Jolie, … are all beautiful, but for many that is an unachievable dream. Does that mean we give up on the idea of beauty, no it means we need to re-define it!
At the Real Women, Real Beauty sessions each women is treated to a professional makeup application by the amazing Shasta Hankins, a Freelance Makeup Artist. It has been a pleasure to work with Shasta and see her bring out the natural beauty within each women she works with! As we move into shooting I love being able to show a couple images on the back of the camera to each person. I love seeing that reaction- the amazement that it is really them, the awe, and even the tears. This is what this is all about… having each women realize the beauty that is within them!
Here are just a few images from these sessions, don’t worry I’ll be sharing more later! If you’d like more information or to see more Real Women, Real Beauty sessions come visit me at the Spokane Women’s Show this weekend Friday, April 20th- Sunday April 22nd.
