Did you know that you can combine all kinds of things in one session? I wanted to share Fiona's session with you not only because she is gorgeous but to show you in one session, you can update your headshot, celebrate and capture beautiful pictures of You and get family photos at the end. So it's all about the woman first. She gets pampered with hair and makeup; we photograph just her in a few different looks and then the kiddos can come in at the end to get family pictures.
Like a lot modern women, Fiona is successful in business, she is a mom to Evy Rose, she is a sister and she is full of feminine power. Fiona is also a close friend of mine. She is someone I admire greatly for her strength; her dedication to family, friends and self growth as well as her ability to rise to any occasion and come out stronger as her journey has not always been paved with smooth stone.
You see my sessions are all about celebrating the modern woman, and her journey.
The modern woman wants to see her true self. She wants to exist in beautiful photographs and have imagery to properly represent her legacy for the rest of time. She wants to see her confidence and knows that does not have to mean a full makeover transformation and elaborate wardrobe. Two of the looks here are dresses I keep in my studio in case a woman wants to glam it up a little more.
The modern woman doesn’t compete with other women. She knows she is destined for great things and likely already doing them. She’s a lover and a fighter.
This, to a tee, is Fiona.
When she left the session, she sent me a text that said "It's so clear that you have found your calling. Thanks, again, for such a great day."
That text made my heart sing!
I photograph women who seek this experience because she wants to find herself or because she already knows exactly who she is and that she is someone worth celebrating. As women, we are multi-faceted and all of the parts that make us whole are worth celebrating and capturing. It is not vanity. It is pure self love.
