Uh-hem…. Yes….. the shameful images above are photos of me. And as much as I looked like a 40 year old country singer, biker chick, lounge singer I was actually only 17 years old and about to graduate from high school. I first had my senior portraits taken at Sears and I absolutely hated them. So I headed a little ways down the mall and took advantage of a sale they were having at Glamour Shots, hoping to get some better images. I hated them just as much as the Sears portraits. Do you remember that place? As far as I know, they don’t exist any more. Glamour photography fizzled out. Now it’s back in action and quickly growing as a very popular type of photography, but thank the good Lord that the 90’s style didn’t return with it. Modern glamour sessions are nothing like the old school versions. When people here the phrase “glamour photography” they might still think of the old mall studio which would probably not send them running to have a shoot for themselves. But I’m on a journey to “bring sexy back” in a new and modern way and I thank you for being a fan and telling your friends about me! But first, you HAVE to look at the glamour shots on this blog post at buzzfeed.com because it got me laughing so hard! It’s hilarious! Oh, and in case you are wondering, the biker chick photo in the middle is the one I ended up using for my yearbook photo, but I hated all the photos I had done for my senior portraits and I was so embarrassed when the yearbook came out! I’m 32 years old now, but I still feel a void where there should be a great memory of an awesome senior portrait session.
I’m thankful that my clients have decided to trust me with their glamour photography and that I can give them an experience that is oh, so much better than the experience I had in high school. Their experience is nothing like what you would find in a mall. Instead they get to enjoy a luxurious experience involving an amazing hair and makeup artist who is awesome at accentuating beauty that is already there (even if they don’t yet see it) and a photo shoot that brings out their personality. I don’t just dress them up in whatever costume I have in their size (which was very limited in my high school shoot, as they didn’t cater too much to the curvy clients). My clients love their photos and instead of being embarrassed to show them, like I was in high school, they can’t wait to share their photos with their loves ones. Photos of THEM with their own beauty shining through.
