Recently I had the absolute pleasure of photographing Marlena and her two daughters, Natalia and Amelia. On arrival Amelia and Natalia were shy but excited, having not had make-overs or portraits taken before. After a little time spent just relaxing and chatting, and of course some pampering from the hair and make-up stylists, all three were really excited to begin. Both girls were naturals in front of the camera, and all three made my job so much fun.
They had brought a number of different outfits, as advised at their pre-shoot consultation, and while they were being styled, I worked out which outfits would look good together. The girls were thrilled to be able to request different hair styles, but I was determined to get some shots showing off their gorgeous long locks!
And not to forget Mum - Marlena was stunning with an infectious laugh, and it was wonderful to be able to treat her to some pampering and 'grown-up time' with her daughters. Having not had professional portraits taken before, this was a really special experience for them all to share, and remember.
The closeness and love that these three wonderful people shared was clear to see throughout the shoot. It was such a special session for me, and I couldn't wait to show them the final portraits.
The personal video that was taken during their shoot, as well as their slideshow of gorgeous portraits, did manage to get a few tears, and I was thrilled that they loved what they saw. Making people happy and seeing them fall in love with portraits of themselves makes me swell with pride and love for my job.
If you'd like to share this special pampering experience with your daughter, your mother, your sister, your aunt, or your best friend, get in touch to book in your consultation and see how we can tailor this wonderful session to you.
