My absolute favorite part of commissioned portraits is the people I never would've met otherwise. I get to enter someone's life for an hour and try my best to capture all that they are, who they want to be, or how they want to feel in a photograph.
Sydney messaged me to ask how much a portrait session would cost. We got to talking about what she was looking for, and she asked if I do any nude work. That she'd lost a lot of weight since having her daughter last year and she was going through some big personal transformations and just wanted to document how damn good she feels.
Yes, yes and yes. Nothing makes me feel more honored than being able to help someone feel empowered, beautiful and unequivocally themselves. Sydney, you're a force of a woman and I'm grateful to now know you.
