At the start of the summer I had a good friend come to me and express that she wanted to do something special to celebrate a new beginning for herself. Samantha had been through some personal trials and was ready to brush it all off and start fresh. She had been following my recent work and decided that for her birthday she was going to spoil herself with a beauty experience photography session. It was such a treat to work with Samantha because she has been a long time friend of mine and it was truly beautiful to watch her just come alive during the session. There is no question that Samantha is a beautiful woman, but when confidence and self assurance is behind her, her beauty is unstoppable. We had a full day of laughs and Samantha left re-energized and rearing to go. Now, if only I could figure out how to bottle the positive energy and self confidence that exuded that day- I'd be a millionaire ;) Here are some of the images from her session. Don't be afraid to leave her a little love in the comments!
