This was an awesome photo shoot with Hannah she is a very strong independent single mom who has a lot of confidence within herself. As soon as she arrived I was quite amazed by the amount of clothes she brought with her to change. She was set and ready to go and was willing to even go in the water in other words she was very versatile. Me and her then immediately went for the hikes and did some epic shots!!!
This photo right here actually took without her even noticing, you may wonder why did I do this. The reason why is because I like to capture natural beauty without there having to create it if that makes sense. In other words I like to capture the beauty in people without it being staged because true beauty doesn’t always have to be created, it also can be automatic at least that’s how I see the world. This was just a shot of her undoing her braids which I thought was quite interesting especially how the arms framed her face. As you can see though this young woman is a natural even though she may not consider herself one, in my eyes she’s a natural.
The point of this shoot was to capture the strength within her and to show she is a powerful young woman. As everyone else does she too had a struggle growing up which I will not speak of, but now she feels confidence with herself again and these photo’s prove those exact traits.
We also had a rough day with the sun hiding so much, even though it wasn’t a problem we still wanted at least one shot with the sun! We then saw the sun come out at this exact second and then we took this shot. It was pretty funny actually, but as you can see we managed pretty well without the sun coming out.
This last image I loved because of her shirt being centered saying, “ be your own beautiful.” It meant a lot and was basically the concept of this shoot. She was quite a trooper today and can’t wait to wok with her again and take our shoots to the next level.
