I have known this girl since she was little when she used to come up to the office to see her mom at the office I worked at long before I started my photography journey. Fast forward 12 years and I randomly saw this sweet girl’s photo on instagram and pulled a total quote from the movie, Elf and said, “Hannah, I know her!” (Hannah, Santa….same thing. ;)) I was so excited to get in touch with her about doing some fun modeling shoots for me. In the wake of transforming my business to be less glitz and glamour and more down to earth and authentic, it couldn’t have been better timing. I told her to bring whatever she felt most comfortable in, keep it casual and that we’d just have fun. That’s exactly what we did. This right here is what I want to express in my work. Less about the perfectly posed images (which can make you look stiff and uncomfortable) and more about just being you and getting authentic smiles, laughter, and of course some gorgeous soft face looks.
