This entire journey of my photography business has really enabled me to stretch my business muscles and of course my creative wings as well. Yet creativity has always been something I’ve WANTED to be strong with. I’ve always had a touch of creativity in me (and I mean a touch – a very small portion) but I’ve never had as much as I’d like to. I look at friends of mine like MOLLY, PETER, AMANDA, and I think – WOW – how’d you do that? How did you visualize something so unique, so beautiful, so funny etc – and actually bring it to life! I could go on and on listing all the amazing peeps I surround myself with…these are just a few.
Well I’ve recently started stalking a few photographers that I simply stare in awe of their creative vision. How they can visualize a specific shoot and actually create what is in their head. The entire process is shocking to me! On this shoot – I was lucky enough to work along side of the ever so creative Shannon Sewell. I’ve stalked her blog for a while now and finally begged for a workshop day when she came to dallas. It worked out and I couldn’t have been happier. Shannon – thank you for a glimpse into your world – I learned alot and I hope to continue to add a bit of creative flare to my shoots in the future!
Now – on to these amazing girls. They were my models for the day and I must say that I couldn’t have asked for 2 better girls! I’ve known one since birth and the other I’ve had the opportunity to get to know over the past few years. Their mom’s are sisters and are dear friends of mine. So when this workshop opportunity came up – I quickly had to snag the soon to be famous – Gracie & Alexis duo! They are gorgeous – inside and out, amazingly kind to one another and fearless on this shoot! Thank you girls for letting us ‘play’ all afternoon. I hope you enjoyed it and I hope your arms have recovered from those wings!
Now – on to the images… OH and to see Shannon’s amazing eye at work – here is her post on it (along with a zillion other stunning sessions!). And I can’t forget to give a shout out to the awesome stylist – Vanessa! Thank you for all your help and your eye of course!
