What will your daughter see when she looks at your portrait one day?
Lisa recently became a mom to a beautiful baby girl. These portraits were taken before she became pregnant. When I look at her beautiful portraits today, I imagine looking at them through her daughter’s eyes. “This is my mom before she became a mom.” “She’s gorgeous and happy.” It makes me proud as a photographer that the daughters of the women I photograph will see their mothers embracing who they are, feeling good about themselves and finding the self-worth and value of existing in a portrait.
Lisa, you light up rooms. You are so open and honest about how you think and feel and you give permission to the women around you to be vulnerable without feeling judged. That is such a tremendous gift to have. While you sugar coat none of the experiences of living this chaotic world (in fact you may be one of the most clever and hilarious story tellers I have ever met) you are also never far from expressing and embracing what you find beautiful in life too. Speaking from experience, you make people around you feel happy. These are the things I see when I look at you. I’m so honored to deliver a portrait of you to match all the gems you have inside.
Lisa told me after her session:
“I liked the idea of being photographed, but I always hate myself in pictures so it took a lot of guts to do it. I’m so glad I did, I REALLY love the images! My husband loves the pictures so much he keeps talking about them!”
