I have known Kate for awhile now and when she said she wanted to do one of these portrait sessions with me I was beyond thrilled! I loved collaborating and seeing this whole other side to her.
We go to trivia together every week, go shopping and hiking together and she has assisted me on several photo sessions and weddings. She has become one of my best friends and to be able to do a This Is Me session with her meant the world to me!
The day of the session we started at the studio with hair and make-up. We decided to do the entire This Is Me session in studio to keep with the glam look Kate was wanting. She brought several outfits, including two new dresses that fit her look perfectly! After she was pampered with hair and make-up we started in her favorite new, black and gold dress and went from there. It was a lot of goofing off, laughing and tons of fun!
When she came in to view her photos she was thrilled with how they came out and we had a hard time narrowing them down to fit into an album! Check out her favorites and learn a little more about who she is and why she did these glamorous portraits....
A little more about Kate...
Who is the everyday you? "I am a medical laboratory scientist who gets up way too early who is trying her best to enjoy everything that this city and state has to offer. I am also working on being the best version of myself."
What inspired the theme/style of your This Is Me session? "I have always loved the classic look, the bold make up and big hair. Plus, it is always really fun to get all dressed up since I basically wear pajamas to work!"
If you could describe your portraits/session in one word....what would it be? "Amazing!!"
What was your favorite part of the whole process? "Feeling really glamorous and totally different from my everyday life."
Why was this important to you? Why did you do a "This Is Me Project"? "It really put me out of my comfort zone and was unlike anything I've ever done before. I also wanted to have the reminder of looking and feeling great about myself!"
