I’m going to preface by saying that Chelsie is not a professional “beauty” model, and I am most definitely not a professional “beauty” photographer.
I am however infatuated with the look and feel of a well-done beauty portrait.
I don’t work within the beauty industry, and probably never will. I know these images would never pass the wicked strict requirements of that industry. However; my infatuation leaves me wondering if I can take that look, and that feel, and apply it to the rest of my portrait work. Take the vibe but make it more about the person and less about the product.
We captured these images at the end of our session together - playing around, trying new things - and personally I love the way they turned out. I love how clean and natural the images appear. I will definitely be doing more like this in the future.
Chelsie is brand new to the area, and I believe to the modelling game. She has huge dreams that I hope she continues to chase. She killed it. Not bad for two people working outside our comfort zones.
