Today’s blog post doesn’t really need an introduction – because Katie sums everything up so well in her behind the scenes video. Women like Katie are the reason that I pick up my camera each day.
If there’s one thing that makes me WANT to photograph someone more than anything, it’s when they tell me that they normally hate photos of themselves – which is exactly what Katie told me before we booked her session….but I think (and I think you’ll agree with me here) that she is one of the most gorgeous women I’ve ever met, and more than anything, I wanted her to see herself the way that I see her.
What is so interesting to me, is that I had known Katie for over a year before I photographed her – and her weight was never really something that I noticed. She’s one of the most fun, outgoing, awesome women that I know, and I’ve always admired the way that she can command a room with her bubbly personality – and how she’s always so supportive and complimentary of everyone around her. I had no idea that she was bottling up all of these insecurities and feelings inside. Since this shoot, I have seen Katie transform in so many ways. I’ve seen her speak at events, I’ve seen her gain confidence in her business, and I’ve seen her let go of so much insecurity – it’s been a transformational process for both of us, and I’m just so proud of you Katie (because I know you’ll read this)!!!
Enjoy this behind the scenes video, and some of our favorites from her portrait session….
