Indianapolis glamour photography
Part two. Studio glamour. Empowerment.
Do you want portraits of yourself, but not right now ? You want to loose 10 pounds before and get in shape to look "perfect". Soon.........tomorrow.
And then tomorrow comes along and you are in the same position again. You think, I will loose weight, I will get there, I will look "better". Then I'll have some nice pictures taken. I am guilty of this. All of this. I hated pictures of myself. On pictures I tore everything apart about me that I could find. It went so far that every time someone tried to take a picture I was hiding because I thought I was not pretty enough, not perfect enough.
But guess what. Then I found Glamour Photography.
And everything changed.
I am who I am. I HAVE to accept myself. We all get older. We do get wrinkles, our face changes. Our bodies change.
Life is not the perfect picture we see in a magazine.
Find a glamour photographer. One that specializes in the beauty of woman, one that knows how to pose a woman in the most flattering way, one that sees and knows beauty and that brings your beauty to shine. But one that still leaves you looking like YOU.
Because you are beautiful.
Those pictures of yourself will empower you. They will make you feel beautiful and good about yourself.
If you feel good about yourself you are empowered, with happiness and strength.
The experience of this glamour photo shoot. It might give you just what you needed to push ahead and look forward. It will make you find your beauty and reconnect with yourself.

My Hawai'i Nei - Until we meet again.
Kendra's beachy glamour session.
I have met Kendra on my search for a hair and make up artist on the island. This session in the early morning at sunrise was just magical! Eternity Beach, or also called Cockroach Cove next to the Hālona Blowhole is one of my favorite places on this island. I have never ventured down there in 3 years until this day. It was hard for me to think of going down there with small kids so I just watched from far away when I was near. Oh how I missed out ! If I was still there I'll go down there all the time!
Kendra quickly became my friend, she is just such an easy going , honest and God loving beautiful person inside out!
If you are looking for a hairstylist or hair and make up artist in Hawaii, you have to check her out!

This is for you, aspiring photographer.
I decided to let my first blog post ever, be something practical.
It was in Hawaii, when I made the decision to start learning all there could be about photography.
The whole technical side of it ( camera, settings, shooting manual and such ) was so complicated to me that it literally drove me nuts! For those who know me... technical... not my thing... until photography! :) I pulled through it and learned everything from scratch myself. I was addicted to it. There is so much to learn about photography. I still learn something new almost every day and this is what keeps my heart going for it.
I was lucky enough to have an awesome neighbor and friend who introduced me to another photographer that was looking for an assistant. From her I learned a part of how this photography business works and I learned how to find and utilize light... ( holding her reflector and hauling gear and..... listening closely )
So if you want to learn photography I highly suggest finding a mentor and shadow him or her for a while. I also highly suggest to find groups on facebook or local photography groups to find people to connect with . I had luck again with finding my group of girls from the beginning. HMSP . I am forever grateful. This is a group of awesome connected ladies in Hawaii that are nothing but supportive to each other.
Because of them, I learned so much I would not have learned in such a short time.
Find workshops online and from local photography groups. It is some investment but well worth spend.
If you have no clue about editing, find someone that can mentor you in an editing program such as photoshop or lightroom. Go take workshops again :) keep going.... keep editing.....you will find your groove and find your own style not only in editing but also in shooting . Your "style" is you, it defines you.... look within yourself :)
Your style will evolve just like you do, it will never stay the same ....... yes thats right :)
The business side of photography is a whole different topic , but let me tell you , the photography business consists out of so much... if you have studied business or marketing you are one lucky photographer!
Most importantly, when you are first starting out follow your passion and sparkle on :)
