"You can look into the mirror and see flaws...but someone else can look at you and only see BEAUTY"
WELCOME to my Beautiful Soul Project!!
Over the past two months I've worked on this project. It was a very rewarding experience to me and I want to thank all the women and girls that participated. When I started, my intent was just to photograph women and teens without makeup to show them they are beautiful. What developed was the opportunity to make new friends, renew old friendships, and build deeper bonds with existing friends. The project consumed a lot of my time... time that could have been spent trying to get this photography business off and running , but to me it was so much more rewarding. I feel like I accomplished what I set out to do but gained so much more in learning about all the remarkable women and girls. I haven't photographed all that volunteered and hope to continue. A very special thanks to all of you that participated and putting up with me for the past month and especially for sharing your stories. I don't know if my project will get the recognition it deserves, but you all deserve the recognition for forging ahead and being brave enough to be photographed without any makeup!! I love you all and am so appreciative!! Ladies and girls, you rock!! and you all are Beautiful!!
My first images are of Sandy and her two daughters, Madison and Jillian. I asked Sandy to be one of my participants. She is naturally beautiful inside and out. Madison, her older daughter, another natural beauty is at the end of her sophomore year and a fierce soccer player. Sweet Jillian, such a cutie, about to ascend upon the teens and still looking like a young girl as she should. I enjoyed photographing this lovely Mom and her two beautiful daughters. Stayed tuned for some more Beautiful Soul Images in the next few weeks.
