Beauty is Timeless
Grace Kelly, Sophia Loren, Audrey Hepburn, Catherine Zeta Jones, Angelina Jolie… these are just a few of the women whom I consider to be timeless beauties. Like an exquisite wine, she becomes more beautiful each passing year, and not merely because of what she looks like on the surface. She exudes class, charisma, compassion and personal integrity that is authentic and hypnotizing. Often times, such women became film sirens. In my field, the alarms begin to ring when such beauties are caught on my camera.
Abbie is most certainly Grace Kelly incarnate. What a regal, elegant beauty! When she leaned against the fortress wall and flashed those brilliant blue eyes, I was awestruck. Cascading ribbons of blond hair, high cheekbones and pointed gaze that could stop traffic, Abbie owned the shoot. She moved from set to set with poise and purpose. Enigmatic.
Chapter after chapter in life will pass by, but true beauty, which resides deep within, will remain, adapting to each era. A timeless beauty has learned to cherish herself, not merely hinging on the words of an admirer, lover or spouse. Because when all is said and done, we all begin and end with ourselves alone.
I think I understand it better now. Our work is so much more than just photographing beautiful people. It’s capturing a person’s essence, soul, dreams and desires in a way that simply cannot be expressed in words. Because we need our eyes to see and our minds to comprehend what is captured in one moment. Her moment.
It definitely made me feel like I “owned” it. I had gone through some tough things the last couples years and this reminded me that I still can be beautiful and light in spirit.
I definitely felt comfortable. I felt like the staff was for me and wanted me to love the photos. They took most nerves away…even if Natalie kept making funny comments to get me to crack up. Just that the staff made me feel like I was beautiful and that I was without trying.. which was nice.
How Natalie helped me decide what outfits/jewelry I was going to wear. I needed help deciding and she was great at narrowing it down. Otherwise I believe I would have had a lot of trouble.
Here are a few of our favorite portraits of Grace Kelly… I mean Abbie.
