Natural beauty comes from deep inside us. It is the reason that some people seem to glow. These women have a sense of inner peace and happiness about who they are and how their life is progressing. Rachel booked a session for a work badge that she needed ASAP. No problem I said. We set it up, we talked about what she needed to bring with her (she brought some clothing with her for me to “approve” at our complimentary consultation.) A few days later she came at the appointed time. We curled her hair, applied the minimal makeup (since this was initially work related) and added those wonderful eyelashes that make everyone feel like a celebrity.
After taking care of her headshot poses, we moved into some more creative poses, while still keeping a low key appearance. She followed direction beautifully and said she really enjoyed the work we did together and had trouble not smiling because I was there smiling back at her. I have trouble not smiling when we’re having so much fun creating together. I even put together a tiny video of her at the end which she just giggled at.
Natural beauty is a state of mind, not makeup, hair or clothes. My job is to find it and share it with the world. All the rest is just icing on the cake.
