Check out my new purple backdrop – I absolutely love how they turned out! Lucky for me, Kathie is a big fan of purple so we started the shoot with it and she looks pretty amazing. Kathie and I know each other from another life when we both worked for the same company several years ago, so it was really great to catch up in person again. She is such a busy woman – full time work, 3 kids and several other side projects and activities to fill in all those spare minutes she doesn’t have. Amongst all of that, she somehow found the time to train for and then complete the City to Surf in August.
We had a great time on this shoot (well, I did anyway) as I directed Kathie into the poses and made her twist and contort into the different positions. It turns into a bit of a pilates or yoga workout at times, but the results are worth it!
Here are the same images in black and white, a totally different feel to them but all beautiful.
And because I loved these images so much, here are a few more from the shoot – Kathie, you were a brilliant model and I absolutely love the intensity of your eyes which comes through in every single photo.
These shoots are such a fantastic way to just take some time out and celebrate ourselves as women, not just in our roles as mum and wife and our days filled with kids activities and home stuff. So often we are the ones behind the camera and rarely appear in our own family photos and even more rarely are we the sole subject of a photo. Give me a call or drop me an email to find out more about having a shoot like this for yourself – I’m absolutely loving the results!
