Beautiful Modern Head Shots: Elegant, Professional and Timeless // Abilene, Texas Portrait Photographer

There are SO many businesses out there, thriving wonderful businesses, that deserve to be represented well in an attractive, accurate and inviting way by the people who create, nurture and make their business thrive.  If you are in doubt about the image you are putting out there -- you are probably due for a modern update.  Gone are the stuffy "old" head shots of yesterday.  Breath new life into how you put yourself out there for the world to see.  It should be breathtaking:

Elizabeth: Boudoir Beauty // Texas Modern Glamour Photographer

Elizabeth planned the BEST surprise for her husband for their 5th anniversary.  She had a heck of a time keeping it a secret --- for weeks after the shoot!  Such a day of nerves, makeup, girlfriends there to support her, and absolutely breathtaking images that celebrated her sexiness and feminine beauty in a way that made her feel empowered and completely knocked the socks off her husband!

Photographing a Photographer // Abilene, TX Portrait Photographer

What an awesome experience to get to create a day of beauty celebrating this talented photographer, dear friend and gorgeous woman! 

I knew from the moment I met Andrea that she would be a dream to photograph - and boy was I right.  She is beautiful inside and out and seriously the most deserving of women to have a day of pampering and beauty all to herself.  She somehow manages to homeschool 4 children, run her home, and a photography business, help other photographers (me) with her mad Photoshop skills, and look sweet, refreshed and fabulous at the same time!

Glamorous Portraits // Abilene, TX Portrait Photographer

This lovely lady took the time out of her busy schedule  - which is a juggling act of work, home, mothering 3 sons, and being a wife, oh and having a social life... To do something for herself.  To celebrate, be pampered and to completely step out of her comfort zone.

She knew that she'd love these portraits.  But like all my clients, actually SEEING the gorgeous feminine side of yourself that you KNOW is in there, but rarely is captured in an amazing portrait is an experience in itself.

Glamour Maternity Portraits // Abilene, TX Portrait Photographer

I have been so excited for Shayne's maternity session.  We've been planning this for months and the day finally arrived!  I knew that she would photograph beautifully - despite  her insistence that she's never looked good in professional portraits.  I love showing women how beautiful they truly are... And to be able to do this while celebrating the beauty of pregnancy is just amazing.  

Shayne trusted me with every detail of this shoot and I could not be happier with the results:

A twist on fitness portraits // Abilene, TX Fitness Photographer

This lovely lady came in for a portrait session after she competed in a fitness competition - - she had worked so hard to achieve her goals and to celebrate - and document - her accomplishment, a full-glam photo shoot was in order.

While fitness photography isn't necessarily my primary genre, I find that there is a easily relatable component to my glamour brand - and that is celebrating the beauty of the shape of a woman's body.  Big or small, curves are gorgeous.  Muscle is powerful, and strength is amazing.  All the ingredients together: Pure Awesomeness.

ICON Fitness Gym Abilene, TX

I had the awesome opportunity to expand my technical lighting skills and shoot some fitness portraits and head shots at my local gym.  It was totally fun to try new techniques and find ways to light these absolutely ripped trainers in dramatic ways - - completely different than my normal glamour and boudoir lighting style.  And I think it worked!

Mother's Day Celebration Portraits

With Mother's Day just around the corner, of course it is time for more images that celebrate that amazing bond that cannot be described.

Texas Bluebonnets // Abilene, TX Portrait Photographer

It is springtime in Texas, and that means Bluebonnets!  Well, usually it does.  Last year was a very poor year for blooms, I searched high and low and only found one meager patch.  This year is a vast improvement -- combined with mild weather -- and it is the perfect setting for outdoor family portraits!

Mother + Daughter = Love // Abilene, TX Portrait Photographer

I am so excited for Mother's Day.  This is the time of year when mommies feel they have the "reason" to get gussied up and take gorgeous portraits with their children.  Really, there doesn't need to be a holiday for there to be a reason.  Your children are your reason.  Exist in photos for your children.  It is a gift to them.  It is a gift to you.  It is priceless.  Timeless.  It captures love.

Gorgeous Head shots // Abilene Portrait Photographer

These ladies work hard helping women relax, recharge and look beautiful at the amazing spa they work at: Absolute Perfection Day Spa.  If you haven't been there - - go!  Experience a day of pampering!

How lovely are these professional head shots?
