model portfolios . lots

i am so behind on my model session posts that i thought i’d do a collage of a few for now.
and anyway, i love to look at all of them this way too…
i have to say that i’m amazed at how mature, composed and confident many of the younger girls are today.
i was never any of those things at their ages. not even now, sometimes.
with so much available visually and more at their fingertips, i hope that somewhere,
someone is reminding them not to rush, that life will come,
one way or another. i hope they savor the path, remember to stop and look and breathe.
i remind my own three daughters of this, a lot.
as sophisticated and sultry as they looked at times, their girlish giggles and smiles grounded us and
kept our sessions light, fun and young…as they still are…very young.
i have to admit i love that each of these girls share so much with me on our session days.
they completely let their guards down and have fun,
try poses that they’ve only practiced in front of a mirror, alone, with the music blasting and
the door shut {sound familiar} and are even open to trying something new.
i love that they trust me enough to let go and feel safe.  big steps for such young women.
i hope that in some small way these sessions give them even more strength and confidence in themselves
as they’re trying to figure it all out.
i hope that they see what i see in them…
pure sweet beauty.

Rama Desai - Beautiful photos! Beautiful words! Beautiful models! I am truly dazzled! 🙂
I constantly remind my son of the very same thing. Youth and innocence are precious gifts that should not be squandered recklessly but rather to be savoured, minute by minute, hour by hour…As it is, the sun sets even before the first rays of dawn have diffused.
