Like she stepped straight out of the pages of a glossy, Brenda here simply exudes elegance and glamour. I really enjoyed this shoot because Brenda’s lovely styling pulls off the very definition of “rustic chic,” juxtaposing earthiness with a dose of high fashion on location at Blumen Gardens. Speaking of, this was a “Just Because” portrait photo shoot. She previously booked me for another similar shoot last year when she passed her CPA exam.
When was the last time you did something just for yourself? As I photographed the lovely B, who was visibly enjoying this special treat to herself, I was reminded that there is a certain richness to self-reflecting and consciously doing more for oneself. I am not just a wife and mother. I am also a woman who, once upon a time, had many interests, and boy, do I need to make the effort to do more – for myself!
I’m excited for Part 2 of Brenda’s shoot, which we’ll do when the fall foliage sets in. It should be lovely, like this, just because.
Enjoy these photos, be inspired, and go on, do something for yourself!
