You’re probably already wondering about the “cute and evil” title.
No, I’m not calling anyone evil. Well, ok, maybe a little evil. Cute and evil was a tongue in cheek description of the kinds of expressions Brittaney was throwing at me - her words. And then later I thought it an appropriate title as this session unintentionally became about showing two sides of the same person.
The session started with headshots, and those headshots perfectly captured the “cute”. I’m pretty sure she despises that label, so shhhhh, no one tell her I used it.
The flip side was our adding a dash of sensuality. I’ve said it before, everyone deserves to feel sexy. Everyone should be able to look at themselves, and be confident in what they see. When I got into photography I did so because I love to help people feel amazing – and sensuality has it's part to play.
It’s a side we all have, but that so many hide away. Either out of shame, fear of judgement, or worry that no one will even notice. But the truth is, we are all sensual people, and wanting to be seen as such isn’t a bad thing. We need to stop pretending like it is.
I want to develop a style that captures personality, while also celebrating individual sexuality, in a way that’s strong, tasteful, and empowering. My hope is to help people find that part of themselves, through the work we do together, and feel confident in expressing it if they want too.
Brittaney once again absolutely killed her session. She’s a beautiful young lady – strong and exuding confidence - and I feel honored to have been allowed to capture some of that. She may not have driven all the way to North Bay just to work with me, but I am certianly glad she found the time to visit my studio while she was here.
