This beautiful woman Lourdes contacted me months prior to organise her Melbourne portrait session, as her birthday was approaching she wished to gift herself her very own Melbourne portrait. I could tell by our communication that she didn’t believe how beautiful she really was.
It was my job to then show her exactly how amazing she is in every way shape and form! Our session began with the basics making sure Lourdes felt comfortable at all times, as we moved through I could feel Lourdes feeling more at ease. Learning all about her fitness goals and her Grandmother that she absolutely adores, we even planned on having another Melbourne portrait session where we would include her Grandmother, a woman I feel Lourdes has inherited many of her traits from. Lourdes expressed how much her Grandmother would adore an image of her Granddaughter, yet I mentioned to Lourdes how special it would be to both of them to have an image together, one they will cherish forever.
By the end of our session I asked Lourdes if she would mind me creating a gown on the spot! Something I love to do during my Melbourne portrait sessions. Nothing is more special than having someone create an outfit on the spot just for you! All my gowns I create are literally pinned to my clients during their session, I get so excited when I have an idea in my mind especially when my clients let me roll with it!
It was such an honour to meet you Lourdes, such an inspiring, passionate woman who on a daily basis works as a physio helping others. This was your day to shine! I cannot wait until our next Melbourne family photography session where I get to meet your wonderful Grandmother.
