I've been wanting to try my hand at "Glamour" photography for some time now. Today's Glamour is more Vogue and Vanity Fair magazine than the local mall Glamour Shots of the late 80's - early 90's. And it's MUCH different than "fashion". It's a style of contemporary portrait photography that emphasizes that EVERY woman - regardless of body type or age - is ab-so-lutely beautiful.
Australian photographer, Sue Bryce, has been cited as single handedly bringing glamour back to portrait photography. Sue has been sharing & teaching her style of photography recently and I've been mesmerized! My love of telling a story with photos works perfectly with a magazine-style glamour photo session.
I asked some family members and a close friend to volunteer for a 2 Day shoot. They eagerly jumped at the opportunity and I'm SO GLAD they did! I'm blown away with the results!!!
The incredibly talented Erin Cogdill did make up & hair styling. And Jackie was invaluable for her styling advice. Our girls weekend resulted in some truly lovely portraits of Jackie and Mandy. I absolutely love the one of Jackie in white with the gorgeous backlight. We even had some extra time the second day and I talked Erin into posing a bit. :)
Who wouldn't want to spend the day being pampered, sipping some wine and having gorgeous photos taken of themselves??
