Well you guys… I’ve always had a really, really special place in my heart for Beautiful Sessions… but this just may have put me over the edge (in the best way possible)!!! Shooting this session and getting the film scans back reignited something in me I can’t quite explain!
Beautiful Sessions give me such an amazing opportunity to interact with women one-on-one… to build them up… to show them they are worthy, amazing, beautiful people – inside and out… and it really is an unbelievable experience for me. If I could afford to do these for free every day of my life, I honestly would. These sessions are so close to my heart and “my why” – I just can’t even!!!
I recently announced a marathon of mini-sessions to launch my Beautiful Sessions in Film (which is how I intend to shoot them from now on only) – and will be holding them at my dear friend Jessica’s amazing loft in Chicago. Because film plays differently in different lighting and scenarios – I wanted to test some different types of film in Jess’ place before the big marathon day so I knew what I wanted to use. Thankfully Jess was a willing participant and let me do a Beautiful Session of her!!!
We had the best time just hanging out, sipping mimosas, chatting about life, and photographing her in her gorgeous apartment! I got the film scans back from Richard Photo Lab last night and I basically freaked out and had to download & go through them immediately!!! I had the hardest time narrowing them down – but here are some of my favorites!!!
I give you – my unbelievably beautiful friend, Jessica.
ohmyword!! Just – gorgeous!!! Love. Love. Love this girl SO much!!!
We still have some spots left in the Mini-Session Marathon of Beautiful Sessions on Film – contact me to book your spot today! xoxo
