This morning I would like to share with you a vision I had in my Loft the other day. For this photo shoot, I wanted to take this lovely Mom and give her a "cover girl" look experience - makeup, hair, photo shoot - a day of pampering and beauty just for her. However, as things came together that day and I looked through my lens I had a vision. My mind flashed back to the days of old Hollywood and all those old blonde bombshell movie sirens that I used to watch on television with my Mom growing up. You know the ones...Jean Harlow, Loretta Young, Diana Dors, Marilyn Monroe, and Jayne Mansfield to name a few. As a lover of black and white film, I knew once I got into the editing room that this is the way I wanted this to play out. My "model" mom was not only beautiful, but with her blonde hair and red lips, and that black dress...well, the perfect portrayal of days gone by and women of Hollywood.
I hope you enjoy these pictures and I thank this beautiful lady for allowing me to share this journey back in time with you.
