I received an email back in the Spring from someone who said the a photo shoot was something that was on their 'bucket list.'
Told me she was looking for something that was, feminine, artsy, and obscure.
Right up my alley.
I was inspired by several of the ideas that she sent me, so much so in fact that I've taken to calling some of my work, "Woman as Art." A rather bold statement, to be sure. Nonetheless inspiring to me.
She later told me that she was ending a marriage and that she hoped these photos would help her reconnect with her body and with her own strength as a woman.
She came to my studio this week, and here are some of the results.
Here's what she wrote me afterwards: Thanks for your time today. I felt more comfortable then I could even imagine I would have felt. I had a great time and left feeling very empowered. It's been awhile since I've had that feeling. Thank you.
