Helen Lawrenson once said, “If a woman is sufficiently ambitious, determined and gifted – there is practically nothing she can’t do.”
I’m beginning to wonder if Ms. Lawrenson hadn’t met the lovely Ms. Shanna. Encompassed by a lovely, siren -red ball gown, Shanna stood out like a prominent rose in the middle of our castle courtyard. As her feet glided across the cobblestones, the stone walls seemed to whisper admirably. With each twirl and sly smile, I smiled, aimed and captured her essence. Oh how exquisite to experience this moment with her! When she called me to plan new jersey boudoir photos, I felt in those first few moments, that we would be friends.
I’m excited to see the confident spirit that Shanna exudes. Her attitude about herself is refreshing. It’s so important for a woman to embrace all that she is, and not feel as though she has to shield others from her bright light. Perhaps it’s because she has been a model since she was a small child or maybe she has worked on her own sense of self? Whatever the reason, Shanna was certainly not inhibited to be all that she so beautifully is!
During her pre-consultation conference, Shanna shared that she wanted to celebrate her femininity. How wonderful and inspiring! What if we all followed suit and did one act of kindness for ourselves each day to celebrate our womanhood? How the world would change for the better!
Throughout Shanna’s photo-shoot, she blossomed all the more. As out time together finished, I realized that I felt even better about myself. Her positive energy was contagious! It is my truest hope that all of our clients experience the same glow as evidenced in Shanna after spending a little time at Je Revele.
It was a great experience. You feel that it is “all about you” from the moment that you’re greeted in the courtyard. The setting is unsurpassed in NJ. I have never before been photographed by anyone that is world renowned such as Natalie. I treasure this shoot:).
Natalie made me feel as if all of my pictures were amazing & made sure that my poses translated well on camera. She also posed me when I had doubts about body position. My makeup & hair was beautifully done.
I was a model in a previous life & have been photographed since 5 by pros. Natalie is the first photographer that captured the real, true me. I actually cried when I saw some of the pictures. I did the shoot with Natalie to celebrate a transition in my life. I made the perfect selection of photographers for that.
Meeting Natalie & Mr. Kaplan were actually my highlights!
…one of the greatest joys about doing what you love is meeting someone like Shanna. Initially a client, I can call her a friend.
