I feel so seen! After Julie Foucht and her woman's epic "Reclaiming the Feminie" photo-shoot, Ellen Ozzy Wrona sent me these photographs of our day. She was taking photos of me during our 6 hours photo-shoot along the our majestic sea side manor and along the shoreline of New England.
And I love them. (Than you Ellen!!)
I love that they show me in action and not just taking photos...
SEE< I don't just take pictures.
I coach, I teach, I model how to get into your body and let your true essence be seen while having the camera on you.
I hear this a lot before a photo shoot with me: "I do not take good photographs." And every time I hear it, I know that has it has been true, but it's not the TURTH.
It's only because no one has taught you how to take a good photograph! (and I know this personally because I used to say this too!)
Allowing for inmate, relaxed, joyous person you are to be witnessed in front of the camera takes practice. It takes effort, it takes intention, and it takes some one to teach you how.
It can be taught.
And everyone is different. And I love the moment it happens when you open and let me see the truth of you. For some it takes longer, and some it's shorter, for some there is tears, and for some there is anger in the way.
For me, I allowed the camera in for only a few minutes, then went back to being uncomfortable. It was a slow process over many shoots. And here I am, I can't wait to get in front of the camera.
And each woman did it.
Each woman stepped reclaimed a part of themselves by allowing it to be seen in the camera. There is always a moment, and it's seen not only by me and my camera, but by everyone who is watching. It's an collective ohhhhh that spreads.. now THAT what I want for your marketing!
