I asked someone today to come in for a photo session. (This is something I do almost EVERY day).
Her response was simple, and took me aback, "Why?"
I had to think a bit about that answer:
I told her that a long time ago people started pointing a finger at me, and calling me an artist. I poo-poo'd that for a long time, but eventually came around to believing it to be true.
I make art with my camera, and my lights (including natural light), and the shadows. I make art that hopefully, looks into the soul of the person in the photograph, or sometimes shows the sculpture that God gave them. My calling is especially to celebrate the beauty and grace that God gave women.
That's a mouthful that I struggle every day to prove true.
So the short answer to the question: "Why?"
"To make art with me!"
(Well, she thought it was a good answer.)
All that being said, I AM booking seniors right now especially. Call, email or message me today.
And for the curious, the lovely model in this photograph is Hannah, who once hailed from the Tell City area, but has since moved on to greener pastures. I made the photograph with natural light.
