Blog excerpt: “The excellent thing about candid portraiture, particularly that which seeks to capture each subject simply as they are, is that it doesn’t require experienced models. In fact, for me, one of the greatest pleasures of running a photography business has been getting to create someone’s first ever portrait session, to give someone the gift of confidence through looking at photos of themselves that capture their essence in a beautiful way.
There seems to be a trend with all of the @girlslovetravel women who I’ve photographed so far: they’re all old souls. This suits me just fine because I am too. Perhaps that a prerequisite for wanting to see and experience all that the world has to offer, to learn from people of all walks of life. Or perhaps we connected online simply because of our similar natures. Either way, every one of us seems particularly interested in stories; sharing our own and listening to others’, sometimes sharing others’, too. As we walked through Old Town, I got to listen to Maya talk about her family vacations growing up - picnics in Egypt, exploring in Russia - her experiences as a teacher and her love of exercise and sports. The more I got to know her, the more badass she was.”
