This post is inspired by the attached image. I have gotten a great deal of positive feedback on this photo from friends. While it is wonderful to have words such as “beautiful”, “gorgeous’, “stunning”, and “amazing” to describe a photo of myself, these are not words that I would have come up with. As women we tend to be critical of our own image. While we can say wonderful things about portraits of other women, we find it difficult to describe ourselves in the same way. If the woman in this image was someone other than myself, I would have had no problem using these same words. Why are we so hard on ourselves? That changes today. Yes friends, you are right. I do look damn hot in this photo :)
So, here is my mission. I am going to do a Ladies Only shoot…FOR FREE. I will take the first 10 women who contact me. The date is Saturday evening May 12th, beginning around 4PM. This is the evening before Mother’s Day and a great way to have a ladies night out. We will have wine, appetizers, laughs, and take amazing and beautiful photos of each of you. I will share one edited image that I believe will make you feel stunning! I am asking that everyone purchase one image from the online gallery, either for your significant other, parents, or yourself. This will be an event to celebrate how beautiful every woman is.
…And if you don’t believe I can get an absolutely gorgeous image of you, then it’s you that I am talking to. I am ready to prove you wrong!
UPDATE: Ladies’ Night was a success and we got some really awesome shots! I think we’ll have to do this again sometime. To see a sampling of the results, head over to to the ladies’ night gallery.
