This beautiful girl just amazes me. I had such a great time photographing her Papago Park Maternity session. Not only is she gorgeous on the outside, she has such a kind and loving heart on the inside. It’s been such a joy and honor getting to know Jena. From her senior pictures to family/maternity sessions, it’s been incredible continuing to photograph these important moments in her life.
Jena is one of the sweetest people I’ve ever met and her positive outlook on life is contagious. She also happens to be my amazing hairstylist!! Outside of our photo sessions, we get to spend time in her chair getting to know even more about each other. It’s been so fun to watch her become a mommy and now soon have another little one in tow.
It always amazes me when clients tell me they aren’t very photogenic or always feel awkward in pictures, and then bam, look like super models in front of my camera. There is incredible beauty inside everyone just waiting to come to life. I’ve spent a lot of time creating techniques to help my clients feel as confident as they can, encouraging them to embrace their beauty. It feels really great at the end of our session to hear that they felt amazing. When I get home and go through a session and see photo’s like Jena’s, after telling me she’s doesn’t feel photogenic, it’s like Christmas morning seeing frame after frame filled with stunning gorgeousness. I hope that after she sees these she will feel confident knowing how beautiful she truly is, in real life and on camera.
