Talk about a tough momma. Jill wins the award. She braved the 100 plus degree weather for her maternity shoot. However, I think it was all worth it. B Jane kindly allowed us into her backyard for this shoot. I had a vision in my head of what I wanted it to look like and Buffy's yard was the perfect place for my dream to come to fruition. If you're an artist, you know what I mean by making your vision come to life. You think it, you see it in your head, and so badly you want to make it reality. Sometimes things don't turn out the way you want. Sometimes they do. And when they do, you feel validated. So validated.
I'll be honest with you. I was nervous about this shoot because I felt that Jill was nervous. I decided to just share my vision for our shoot with her. Once, I told her what I had envisioned she let me take the reigns and let me tell you folks that these are the best shoots. I love it, I thrive from it, I am challenged by it when a client says I trust you to do what you want.
While I'm on the subject, let me insert my business manifesto:
This business is not a service I'm providing. It's my art. If you're looking for a service, I'm not your photographer. I can direct you to those types of photographers. I'm very serious about my art. It's my interpretation subject to your interpretation. I absolutely welcome your ideas. They're a good jumping board for me, but ultimately my clients expect me to create art and I love it, I thrive from it, I am challenged by it when my clients trust me. Trust me.
Jill is really selling the maternity look.
beautiful parents, beautiful baby bump, beautiful day
Thank you for letting me be a part of this.
