There is something so serene about a simple beauty session in the California desert. A plain silk slip, robe and stunning dress from Katrina’s wardrobe complimented the feel of this intimate and ethereal shoot. The setting was simple and subtle which allowed the focus to remain on the ever so stunning, Olivia. Beauty portraits are so much more than being sexy and perfect. It’s more about celebrating the vulnerable woman willing to stand before you and creating imagery that tells their story. Olivia’s husband is currently serving our country overseas, and this session not only served as a gift to him but as a gift to herself. As women, we tend to the hustle of everyday life and forget the most important person in this life is ourselves. I encourage women to make the time to have photographs taken of them; embrace your flaws and differences. It serves as a way to remember who we were and how much we’ve grown and perhaps, together, we can set a new standard!

BEHIND THE LENS

ABOUT alexis

At home near the sea. Back porch sittin' listening to the sounds of the low country.  Jeans and a tee. Waffle House. Jersey girl. Kane Brown on repeat.

Yes. You read that right. Jersey girl. Born and raised. If you've ever watched Jersey Shore ... yep. Spent many a summer on that board walk. While I will always remember where I come from I'm never going back! I've fallen in love with the South Carolina low country and I'm here to stay. As a Marine Corps veteran I've been a place or two around the US but my heart calls Beaufort home. I love to laugh so tell me your best dad jokes (I might save them for later).
