Last week I blogged about Rita & Marilyn’s Mother-Daughter Glamour Session. That day was so special to my heart because it was so fun to help two amazing women feel beautiful, sexy, confident and empowered. It was also quite meaningful to document their bond and relationship and I know the photographs will be something they will cherish for the rest of their lives, especially as their family grows.
And while the joint pictures were so beautiful and sentimental, I think the solo shots are really special and meaningful as well. Because seriously, how amazing is it to have a beautiful photo of yourself you can be proud of every time you see it?!
A lot of the moms in my mother daughter shoots feel particularly self conscious. They worry they won’t look young, beautiful, or skinny. They love watching their daughters shine and they secretly want to shine as well. But they are afraid. Afraid they just can’t look good.
But that’s where they are wrong. I look at moms and see a beautiful woman, with a gorgeous inner light, and an elegant sophistication and sensuality only time and life experience can bring! I love helping to style and pose moms to bring all this out and make them shine so bright it.
Marilyn was so fun to photograph because she has such style and sophistication and the most beautiful, warm, genuine soul. She’s a mom, a business owner, a super creative person and a single gal looking for fun! We laughed, and just had such a blast during the shoot! And as the shoot went on I saw her nerves fade and her have so much fun– maybe more fun than Rita was having if that’s possible! I am pretty sure she could have shot two more hours, if getting hungry for lunch wasn’t an issue for all of us! LOL! I just adore these photos of Marilyn. She has such a glow and beauty that can’t be matched. Look below and you will see what I mean!
