Just Do It ...
If you had
Or one opportunity
To seize everything you ever wanted
In one moment
Would you capture it
Or just let it slip?
I don't take pictures of models ... but it seems I create them.
A recent WayYouAreWonder Lindsay came for her shoot a few months back. She had wanted to shoot for sometime but had never found either the courage or the right photographer. She says after 5 mins talking with me and she knew she had found the right photographer. On the day of her shoot, the most excited and ready to explode woman walking into the house suitcase of suitable clothes in hand.
We shot, for hours with flags, lingerie, corsets, body suits, in a bubble bath and in the shower. As she said later ... I certainly challenged myself, and changed throughout the day. I left a different person to the one that came. We talk alot when we shoot. Many things are covered and a fair few people have suggested a day with me is a form of therapy. She runs her own business as a virtual assistant and deals with many different people, and loves it. She also, it seems has a new passion for lingerie. As we chatted throughout the day she happened to mention that she would love to be a plus size lingerie model. What better way to indulge in her new passion?
Lindsay is seems also, quite rightly, lives for the now. Seizing her moment she sent a number of applications to agencies. She got 2 responses and and interview. Well she went for that interview and they signed her on their books pretty much on the spot.
A Way You Are Experience is more than just about having pictures taking. It's about challenging yourself, pushing the comfort zone and empowering yourself to do more.
I can't wait to see what awaits for Lindsay, see what she can become and to see her live her dream. So say I am proud is just an understatement.
