Beauty Beyond Their Years

Yesterday, I had the joy of photographing three young girls.  The day was intent on continuing the next chapter of my conceptual campaign "Wanderlust Traveler", a series inspired by miniature exploration.  However, upon seeing the beautiful work by our stylist, Latia Eittreim, the soft palate of the costume style and the wonderful vibrant colors of falls, we just had to do a few simple portraits of these amazing girls.

Looking into their eyes, I was so inspired by their amazing spirits and the beauty that lay beneath the surface.  With such wonderful intensity, there is no doubt that they will carry with them a powerful spirit, kind hearts and a gentle beauty that will bring them beautiful lives.

Soon, I will post Wanderlust imagery.  But, for now, I will leave you with the beautiful images from Elise, Eleri and Lilli.

PS.  If you are ever looking for a hair or makeup stylist, I highly recommend you seek out the amazing talents of Latia Eittreim.  Aside from her mad skills in both worlds, my models simply adored working with her.  She made the experience very relaxing for all involved and brought a lot of creative insight and skill to the event.  A rockstar performer!

Beauty is Always an Exciting Saturday!

The best part of being a photographer is having the tools and opportunities to create images of just bout anything!  Over the years, I have done numerous conceptual and editorial photoshoots with many creative and adventurous people.

This weekend, I get to step into the fray one more time and realize another vision - The Wanderlust Traveler.   I am excited (and even nervous) to see how some things will work beautifully, others will fail miserably and some will be fantastic accidents that one day I will claim were the goal all along!  (And a special shout out to Elise for being last week's test subject!)

Looking back, I have been so blessed to surround myself with many talented and beautiful models.  Each carried not only a breathless beauty, but also a spirit within that made them truly amazing.  I am lucky to live within this world of art and each day thank those who give me yet another reason to dream in the daylight and encouragement to share my greatest passion and ideas.
