Feeling beautiful is such a personal emotion. What makes someone feel beautiful is unique to them. It is often so much more than clothing, makeup or hairstyle. It goes beyond how we look. Each time we photograph one of our Forever Beautiful subjects we learn a little bit more about the true nature of beauty. Each of these inspiring women share and teach us what matters to them. Learning from them allows us to create beautiful images with them.
Irene decided to book a Forever Beautiful session with us earlier this year. Her busy life as a mother, daughter, wife, and student caused her to put the needs of so many before her own. For the most part this is why 1992 was the last time she was the subject of a portrait session. She has experienced and accomplished so much since then. She is raising three wonderful children, two of whom have graduated high school. Recently she earned her bachelor’s degree.
Our afternoon with her was wonderful. She lived up to her reputation as a smart, sassy, confident woman. The sounds of reggae filled the studio as we worked together to create her images. Along the way we learned that each of her tattoo’s has story, many tied to family members. It was important to capture her ink work as part of who she is.
We love what we created together with Irene.
