Contemporary Portraits: The New Glamour Shots
It is time for that mindset to be over. You really need to celebrate who you are right now because this is time you do not get back. Your kids, grandchildren, friends, & other family members adore you & I promise they do not see what you do; that reflection you avoid in your mirror is not what pops into their minds when they think of you. They don't see your fat rolls, dimples and wrinkles. They see your beauty, your laughter, light, & love.
So we talked about this shoot for a couple of months. We talked about a mood, theme, picked out clothes together, discussed all the details, & finally set up a date. I put up the backdrop & props, got out the fans for her hair & to keep her cool. She even got treated to the silver ice bucket & tongs, nice glasses, waters, sodas, & a silver platter of chocolates and cherries atop a decent tablecloth. I had plenty of seating for her & any company she may bring. There was a make-up & hair station and a lot of breaks. She came over & we did her full make-up, lifted and curled her hair, & commenced to her big photo shoot.
