Feeling A Bit More Me

So lately I have been trying to see where I went. I mean where did this fun , full of life, glass half full girl disappear to. I had balls (sort of lol) I never backed down for what I believed in and have always treated people as to how I wanted to be treated. For awhile now I have not seen that girl and that was scaring me. Well Friday I stepped in front of a camera again. Not a self portrait no … this was me letting someone else so me how they see me. Well I have to give hug props to the two amazing women that helped me feel good and let me see that girl I want to be again.

I would like to thank Megan for making my face look amazing and giving me the look I really wanted to have for this shoot!

Big thanks also go to Ashley of Ashlynn Imagery for taking the time and the patients with me… I know how hard it is to work with other photographers…lol we are a picky bunch. http://www.ashlynnimagery.com/

Some may think I’m not showing my actual age. Some may  fantasize about me because the  image they see . So, are they attracted to the actual me or to the image? I am a  real woman who is 42 years old, who has a lazy eye, who has a hernia & overweight. That is who and what I am … I can deal with it … just hope other people can.

I will take away a day of fun , laughter and friendship.

I’m blessed to have amazing people in my life and thank them all.

Kyia

So over the last month I have photographed my beautiful niece a few times .. Thought I had written up about but I guess I didn’t .. du’h

She came over the first time to do some Glamor photos with me stylizing it all.

This one is full of spunk and fire and will break many a hearts in her life time .. I just hope she finds the one that captures it and handles it with care.

Auntie J loves you doll face.

The other shoot I had with her was actually me helping my buddy Darren with his session with her. He wanted to do pinup army theme . I just took a few quick ones of her.

Explored

So yesterday was a great day. The photography site Flickr has a showcase thing everyday. They call it Explore … well yesterday out of around 500 images that are Explored my photo of Cheri got to the top third spot!

I have to say how happy this makes me . This one photo on this site has been seen by almost 3000 people!

Here is the screen capture of it.

Her whole family came for the shoot… including her sweet little sister whom we dolled up and took a few shots of as well.

 

lol a few instagram photos of us.

Tinkering

So as of late  I have been inspired by the truly inspirational Sue Bryce and her creative ideas when it comes to posing and clothing. She tends to make shift  some pretty awesome pieces for her glamor photography.  Well I have taken lead with that idea and have started to bring some different pieces into my studio that I can put together to make a unique beautiful look for my clients. I have to tell you this… I AM BY NO MEANS A SEAMSTRESS…I will probably have to stitch things again  in the future and if I could glue and paste things  all together I would..lol

But I do love the mindless actions of hand stitching things as couch surf  watching my favorite show’s or movies. And taking a break from editing.

I will try to take better before photos…lol my ipod instagram’s are a tad grainy but for what they are I like them.

This is just to show you how things can look once stylized on a beautiful woman!

The two of us styled the Model with pieces we have bought and made for our Glamor photography. The perfect combination of unique and flirty!

The beautiful Model is the talented baby photographer Kristin Hohenadel of Captured by Kristin Newborn Photography https://www.facebook.com/CapturedByKristin?ref=ts&fref=ts

Remember to see the beauty in all things!

Here are a few instagram photos from the shoot.

Sleepy Hollow

So this past Sunday a bunch of us really awesome yes I said it AWESOME ..lol Photographer friends got together to shoot a “Sleepy Hollow” themed idea.  We had some really amazing models come and man did they go all out! They where totally dressed to the nines with their idea’s of how they would look in the Sleepy Hollow town. The location was offered up to us by one of the amazing people that belong to our Guelph Photographer Facebook Group. Jackie and her really fracken awesome hubby Perry.  They even laid out some spread for us and let me tell you by the time we where done shooting we where all hungry and ready for a hot beverage!Now about half way through this shoot our fearless host got tossed from her horse who had lost his balance on uneven ground. She hurt her knee and yet didn’t want us to leave so we stayed and finished out our shoot. ( We wish Jackie a speedy recovery)

I would love to thank all those that came out and took part of this amazing fun , exciting , tiring day!
