There are many reasons why you might choose to have a beauty shoot, and Kendra was certainly very clear on hers. After a lot of recent changes in her life – getting married and having a kid – Kendra was intent on doing something just for her: something to mark and celebrate the woman she is today. And for that reason, a pampering beauty shoot was just the ticket!
At the time of booking her shoot, Kendra told me that she was looking for a new job, and so was considering both professional and beauty portraits. Yet when she arrived for her shoot, she excitedly told me she’d been hired to work as a teacher in China! Wow! So, not only do her portraits celebrate the beautiful, confident, and sparkling person she is today, they also mark the beginning of an exciting new chapter in her life. 🙂
It was the first time Kendra had had her make-up professionally applied, and she was really pleased with the outcome:
“It was a new experience and it was great fun. I wanted to have that beach-sun look and I think that was definitely achieved.”
As ever, hair and makeup artist Chrissi did a fantastic job!
We captured Kendra in four of the outfits she’d brought along, and time just flew by – as it usual does when you’re having a blast, right? 😉
That same day, after only an hour’s break, we showed Kendra the best of the portraits, and this was her reaction:
“When you look at the photos and you really see yourself, and I think that it was a good awakening. I’m a beautiful, strong, and fun person, and I see that in the pictures.”
So, with her new portraits all ready to go (although sadly packed away in a box for now!) we wish Kendra bon voyage, and an energising start to her new life in China. We also hope she get’s much enjoyment from looking at her portraits for years to come. 🙂
