What's a girl to do?
I mean really. What's a girl to do when her job and her heart find themselves in conflict?
Don't get me wrong. I LOVE my job! Anyone who knows me knows this, especially when it comes to high school seniors. I love capturing their unique style, their exceptional beauty, the expressions that make them "them". I have found the job of my dreams!
But my heart sometimes struggles with this job. After all, here I am celebrating each girl's beauty- her eyes, her smile, her gorgeous hair, or the way she laughs- but what I really want to do is celebrate with them their inner beauty- the TRUE BEAUTY of their heart, which is so precious is God's eyes. (1 Peter 3:3-4)
I have been praying about this conflict for a few months now, and just recently had the most wonderful idea. As I know full well, none of my great ideas are ever mine, so I'm giving God credit for this one! Thank You, Father!
Starting RIGHT NOW, in addition to my classic Senior Portrait Sessions, I will be offering TRUE BEAUTY SESSIONS. These sessions are exactly the same as my classic senior portrait sessions in most ways- planning, products, price, technical process, etc. The one difference is the focus.
With a typical Senior Portrait Session, the focus is on the outside. We chat about personality and color preferences, we create Pinterest boards to brainstorm poses and lighting ideas, colors and expressions. We connect with the best hair salon in town (props to Gwendolynn's Salon & Spa) to create flawless hair and make up, and we have a great time.
With TRUE BEAUTY SESSIONS, the focus begins and ends with the heart. We begin with prayer and a special Bible verse chosen by the senior and then journey through the portrait experience with a focus inward. Pinterest boards, hair and make up, lighting, posing, prints and portrait pieces all remain part of the process, but all are grounded in prayer and God's Word.
TRUE BEAUTY SESSIONS go much deeper than the surface, creating an experience that could be life changing for each girl.
I am ELATED to share this with high school seniors everywhere and would love to fill my entire calendar with these sessions, so I'm offering a special price for them THIS MONTH ONLY!
DURING THE MONTH OF SEPTEMBER, BOOK TWO TRUE BEAUTY SESSIONS (ONE FOR YOU, ONE FOR YOUR BFF) FOR THE PRICE OF ONE!
So grab a girlfriend and let's make a date.
I'm certain it will be an unforgettable experience, both for you seniors, and for me.
I can't wait!
