I love a challenge! I love created something completely different than anything I've done before, challenging me to think outside of the box. Enter...Natalie's Fearless Spirit session.
When Natalie joined the Fearless Spirit Model Crew, I was really excited to do her session because her best friend is a Blue-Tongued Skink named Derby. Since I customize all of my sessions, we had to include him in her session. I created the landscape that he would be standing on out of floral pieces and other material. Natalie fed him cheesy bread so it would make him sit up so I could photograph him.
Challenge #1: Done!
She also loves rainstorms. So, naturally, I created a rain storm! Duh. ;)
Challenge #2 Done!
She also told me that her favorite game is Overwatch. I created her outfit to go with the game. I used graphics from the game and programed them into my light painting tool. Then, I light painted around her in the dark. Super hard to get it lined up correctly. No photoshop on the light painting images, folks! All done in camera.
Challenge #3: Done!
What Natalie has to say about the Fearless Spirit Model Crew:
I liked that I got to meet new people and grow as a person and have better confidence. I'm glad that I was able to feel beautiful and free.
What Maggie's parents have to say about the experience:
I have really enjoyed seeing my girls see themselves in a way that I could never open their eyes to. The look of 'wow look at me, that's me' means everything in a world full of bullying. I love that they can move forward with pride and a sense of self-worth.
