Natural is Beautiful | MHP Louisville, Ky Portrait Photographer

Friday, January 11, 2013

As much as I would like to say the title means us girls don't have to put on make-up or shave our legs to be beautiful, that is not quite the status quo I am discussing today. The natural beauty I am talking about is the Smile. I had a smile sign suprise me the other day. You know the one that just says Smile! with a squigly underneath? It was writen someplace strange like the garbage can or a public restroom. Caught me completely by surprise and I actually did smile.

The most beautiful of smiles, to me, is the one right after tears. But as I hope to never make (or cause, I suppose) anyone over the age of 5 cry at any photo shoot, we will have to settle for the second best...

The belly laugh.

It is the real stuff. The one where only your family and friends can call it up in an instant. Those are what I live (and shoot) for. They make my life complete. No matter what has to be said to get the laugh that touches the eyes, I am all for it. There is a reason photos don't have sound. We can keep the slightly off-color jokes or talk about boogies out of the photo and off grandma's wall. No one has to know. It will be our little secret.

All hail the belly laugh.


New Year, New Goals | MHP Louisville, KY Portrait Photographer

Thursday, January 10, 2013

I am starting this year off with the hopes of helping you, my friends and clients. I hope to help you understand what I do, how I do it, and hopefully put you at ease about photographs. So here goes.

You are normal. You really are. Your family is normal.
Your kid who won't look at the camera or stop wiggling or fussing is normal.
Your husband who smiles too hard, or too scary is normal.
Your teenager who thinks they are way too cool for school (or photos) is normal.
Your dog (or 4 year old) who has to be bribed is normal.
You are normal.

And it is my job to capture something anyway. I can help you get those amazing photos of your normal family, because I know some tricks, I have some patience, and I have the quick trigger finger to catch something before the melt down really ensues.  I do have real like examples, but I will leave those to your imagination to protect the innocent.

Today remember you are normal. Tomorrow, a new revelation to share with you.
