Sometimes bringing out the sexy requires a bit more work than you might think. This – this celebration of self – can seem so outside your normal daily mode of mom, wife, cook, employee, superwoman – that it seems an impossible step to go from the you that you see in the mirror every morning to the images you see here on this blog. And yet somehow you find the courage to come forward. Despite the inner doubtful voice telling you that this kind of photo session is crazy, that this is not “you”, that the potential for beautiful is so elusive as to seem impossible, despite all of that, you still come forward and trust me to photograph you. And for that, I thank you. And for the words you share with me at the end – the “I can’t believe that’s me” or the “I am shy but you managed to bring me out of my shell” or whatever is in your heart when you see these images, I thank you. For thinking them. For speaking them. For believing in me and yourself enough to shut out the insecurities and let me share my vision with you and show you that what you see is really only the beginning.
And so I bring to you Lady R. A shy flower that bloomed before me, radiant in flash of the studio lights. Enjoy!
