Yes you will recognize this stunning woman. Melynda Moon came over to pose for me again yesterday. Myself and Ashley Taylor of Ashlynn Imagery wanted to shake off the winter blues and get out and photograph Melynda out for Glamour and inside for Boudoir . It was a beautiful day to shoot yesterday … a wee bit cold but when you have a trooper like Melynda you keep going. We came back to my place to get some more Boudoir photos in. Such a great way to spend a already great afternoon.
So this lovely has come to me before for boudoir photos. She gave them to her boyfriend and believe it or not he loved them… (yeah well I believed he would) and on that very same day he proposed to her… how SWEET!!..sigh
These to are so smiley and kissy I had a hard time getting photos of them not doing either..lol
I really wish these two so much happiness and laughter in their future years together!
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.
It may just be me but I have a bit of a hard time with anybody in the service industry that doesn’t try what they offer their clients… such as the Fish Monger that doesn’t eat fish.. or the Dance Instructor that can’t show her “students” what she is asking them to do for her. I as a boudoir/glamor photographer find it hard to believe there are some photogs in this niche that do not step in front of their cameras like they ask their clients to.
Yes I do take photos of myself… a lot of them me just being a jackass and joking around. Sometimes I want to make my self look and feel pretty too. Well today I got to thinking that I always do something creative .. stuff most clients would not ask for , for their photos. So today I went ahead and tried to do stuff that I ask of them. I don’t have a super long cord for my remote so that is why there are no real body shots. But here you go … me doing boudoir/glamor.
Yes women I get the OMG I’m half-naked in front of a total stranger factor I have done some modeling for photographers before … so I know the feeling.. I just want you all to know that I’m in your corner and will you ease into the way my style is . Trust me to be part of your life’s journey.
p.s remember I’m a big girl not in love with all of my body but knowing how to pose makes it easier 🙂
So today had my first “Tickled Pink” client and what a blast.This was not Carrie’s first Rodeo with me … this is her third time coming for a shoot and she will be coming again and I can’t wait!! She recently got her hair dyed pink and wanted to do something fun with some head shots. Myself and Megan (my killer make-up) artist came up with a Jeffree Starr inspired theme. http://jeffreestar.tumblr.com/
We started off with such a beautiful clean palate. Then moved to a pink everyday wear makeup look, then we busted out the colours and went to town doing Carrie up!!
We had a basket full of candy to play with too … mostly thanks to our candy fairy Joan Larson … of Stigmata Tattoo In Guelph. THANKS JOAN IT ALL CAME IN HANDY!!
So with pink hair, a love for life and a few mitts full of candy Carrie rocked out her session!
So the other morning I really could not sleep was up at around 5am. Posted on my facebook wall that I wanted to go out and shoot and maybe hit up a place for breaky. A old photography buddy of my James Winsor got a hold of me and was like lets go I’m on my way. Well we found a field where the fog was looking really nice and we walked out into it get closer to some trees. What a fun morning these are the shots we got.
