During a conversation about a possible photo shoot this evening, I received this message:
"Cliff, I really don't think I compare to the lovely ladies I have seen you shoot. Not even in the same category! "
The answer to that is:
In all reality the lovely ladies I have photographed are - just like you.
Real-life women, with the same doubts and fears.
They've just taken the trusting jump out of the plane, believing that the parachute I offer will open and they'll be free and safe - and that they'll see something in themselves that they've never seen before.
And it always does (the parachute, that is).
Don't wait for perfection. You're already perfect, just the way you are.
