My mother-in-law stayed with us for a couple of weeks this month and we got her in the studio for a little pampering and some gorgeous shots. Can you believe that this woman is over 50 years old? She is so beautiful inside and out and I think these photos really show that. I know that my children will love and cherish these photos when they are older because their grandma is so important to them. The before and after photo, to me, is so much fun. Its purpose is to show the person without their hair or makeup done, lighting, posing, etc. and see the result when it’s all done the right way!
Mother’s and women want to look good and feel good about themselves right now. I know because I am one. I want to get more people, especially women, into my studio who just want to have beautiful portraits of themselves done. We all love to be pampered and to feel beautiful but unfortunately we don’t make the time for ourselves or all too often we are afraid to get behind the camera because we know how cruel a 2-dimensional photo can sometimes be.
One of my favorite things in the world is to photograph a girl (some who have never felt pretty in their life) and show her the amazing shot I just took in the back of my camera and see the expression on her face change. Usually it's a great big surprised smile and sometimes I have to wait for the tears to dry before I take another one :-) It is one of the most exciting things I get to do!
Enjoy some more of my beautiful mother-in-law Lisa.
