Happy International Women's Day

 

Throwback to this little video clip I made for Jenny when we had our photo session for Jennifer Lynn Fitness. She wanted images for her business so I thought why not also create a little clip as her promotional video. When I showed the video to her, she actually had tears in her eyes albeit it was not the best cinematography work out there. She was looking at her life, story, relationship and new venture all compressed in a 20 second video. I could really relate why she was moved because I got to read her stories first hand way before her website was published. She was a Director in one of the top RIA firms but quit her job to become a personal trainer, for the love of her own body, her little girl and the hope to help other women in need to heal their bodies inside out. Cheers to Jenny on this International Women's Day for being a determined woman, a tender mom and a loving partner!

Here's to all strong women, may we know them, may we be with them, may we raise them.

 

Boudoir

Anonymous Collection

 

Today I put together an anonymous theme album. These were taken by me over the years working with my wonderful clients, and I thought it's fun to create a collection to let you know that you can request shots like this too for your session. This is especially important if you are planning to order an add-on keepsake book because they make great page fillers! On top of that, anonymous shots are also perfect for ladies who'd love to have their images featured without being identified.

I actually enjoy taking these shots even though they are not the typical portraits that my clients would pick. I love it for the creativity part, it's icing on the cake that helps me tell a better boudoir story.

Hmm.. the more I thought about it, the more I am inspired to do an anonymous theme, dark and sensual boudoir photoshoot. Drop me a line if you are interested, as I would love to talk more about designing the experience for you.

 

Personal Projects

Vincent // Gentle Man // Kansas City

 

I rarely photograph men, except my husband and only  when I worked on some personal projects. When Vincent and I connected, his look inspired me to do a gentle man concept shoot. My inspiration came from some male artists (Example: Jang Geun Suk and J-pink) that posses both musculine and feminine characters, and the soft quality it's something that I would like to capture in guys, as a women photographer. So I pitched the concept to Vincent and we proceed to meeting and hunting for outfits and heels. At that point, I had no idea how the pictures would turn out but that's the fun of doing a concept shoot, you will be surprised by the unknowns! 

I love love love all the final images, love both his soft curly hair look and edgy look in the heels. I'd like to thank Vincent for his openness and my talented hair and makeup artist friend Kat for doing his hair and makeup. Ideas wouldn't come to fruition without collaboration between different talents! Now it's time for me to work on another personal project. :)
