Women, exist in photos

Women, exist in photos

I have been trying for a while to find my groove.  To remember why I love photography.  To take on clients that have the same vision I do and allow me to create the images that are in my mind.  I’ve been listening to workshops and finding motivation in ideas and visions.

Someone asked me the other day what my favorite thing is to photograph.  While I love families, seniors and your children… women are my favorite sessions.  Not necessarily boudoir.  Not necessarily sessions that are given as gifts to the loves of their lives.

Women.  Women who are looking for a way to empower themselves.  Women, who feel exhausted at the end of each day and feel as though they need to wait just a little longer before they take the time to schedule a session for themselves. Women, who are moms… and sisters….and wives… or girlfriends… who wake up each morning and take on life by jumping in with both feet.  Women, who make sure their families are taken care of and those around them have the things they need.

These are my favorite sessions.  To take a woman and show her just how beautiful she is.  She is not just the woman who runs errands all day and chases kids, and finds food stuck in her hair at the end of the day. She is beautiful. She is incredible. She is Amazing.

When I rebranded my business… I did so with this woman in mind.  Beautiful Evolutions.

Beautiful: excellent of its kind
Evolution: a process of gradual, peaceful, progressive change or development

Showing a woman that she is beautiful and thru each evolution of her life, she is incredible.

I’ve been listening to a workshop by a woman that inspires me and pushes me to work to be better at all things that I do.  Here are some of the notes I jotted down the other day.

~ “It is important to exist in photos for your children, for your family, for those you love.  What will be left when you are gone? One day they will look for photographs of you… what will they have?”

Wow.  That will cause you do to a major gut check.  Do not miss out on the key moments in your life because you needed to loose 10 more pounds, or because you didn’t have the right outfit, or because you needed a tan.  Be present.  Be in each moment.  Be in front of the camera, not behind it.

Just some thoughts I wanted to share.  I love what I do and I love the clients that trust me to give them something they can cherish forever.   Every evolution in our life… makes us who we are.  And that my friends, makes us remarkable.

All My Love

Sometimes you meet people and they are so full of life.  They have such a sweet spirit and leave you no choice but to smile and laugh.

Brock is indeed one of these people.  While we have had several connections thru friends, it wasn’t until I had a conversation with his mom regarding senior photography that our paths finally crossed.

Brock, thank you for being amazing.  I truly enjoyed our session and hope you love the images we created.

Brock will start his journey with A&M in the fall.  Best of luck to you… you will accomplish wonderful things.  Thank you for allowing me to be a small part in your journey.

It’s always a blessing to watch our children grow up.  Man, this makes me feel old!  I met Dakota and his family shortly after I moved to Texas in 2005.  Our boys played soccer together and became fast friends.  I adored his parents and his mom and I have remained close friends over the years.

Dakota is graduating this year.  He has become an absolutely incredible man and I am honored to photograph a quick senior session for him.  IMG_1989-Edit

 

As most teenage boys would shy away from public affection and showing any emotion… Dakota is not your typical boy.  He jumped out of his truck when he arrived and gave me a great big hug.  I am proud of the things he has overcome.  And while he is still a boy (notice the wrinkled shirt above) he is a really great guy.  He will accomplish absolutely wonderful things in life and I am so happy I have been able to watch him over the years.

Best of luck sweet boy!  In all that you do.

One side note… Dakota LOVES the color orange.  So when looking for what he would wear to his Senior Prom.. he came across the Tuxedo’s from Dumb and Dumber.  He and his friend ROCKED it out.

lorenz (47 of 53)This sweet baby boy has taken his family by storm.  A family that was once just two beautiful women… now is a family of three.  He lights up the world and reminds us all that there is a sweet innocence that we forget about as we become adults.
