At a very young age little girls dream about being one of the pretty girls they see in magazines. They want to dress up in all those pretty clothes and have their hair and make – up all done up and pose for the camera. Some girls outgrow this desire to be in front of a camera. While others continue to love the idea of being the face of a cover story.
From time to time over the last 16 years, several women have worked with me for just that experience. And then this last March, I attended an event in which several men and women define themselves as models. It was exciting to do photography in which the person I was taking pictures of had practiced moving for a camera and knew how to pose.
I have since worked with other models and have found myself drawn into a larger community of photographers and models. And with this new experience has come a few women approaching me about modeling.
Ashlee and Shay spent a short time with me and we created some wonderful images for their portfolio. During the photo shoot, I gave them a few tips on posing and discussed their strengths and assets. Hopefully this experience will help them decide if modeling is something they wish to pursue or not. If not, we had a lot of fun taking their pictures.
