Glamour Makeover & Photo Shoot - Rosemary. 2013.

January 2013 marked an important start to a new chapter with Heartbox Photography. As most of you know, I have decided to focus my photography on glamour photography for women, offering not only the whole hair and make up/makeover, but with the services of a full photos shoot as well. I love to photograph makeovers and fashion and anything girly, but was too afraid to take the leap full on because it didn't fall into the traditional categories of weddings/babies/families that many photographers are known for.

And now here I am.

It's February and I've just finished the first glamour photo shoot of 2013. Looking through these photos, I couldn't be more happy with my decision. I truly believe it was a step in the right direction for reasons that go far beyond just taking fun photographs.

Rosemary is a friend of mine, one of the godmothers of my niece, and I am honored to have been able to have her in front of my camera. She's not only a beautiful woman, but also a talented artist herself, a lover of all things art and music.

I am a firm believer that every woman is worth the time of a camera, though we don't always think so and having Rose as the very first shoot of the year has encouraged me to keep pushing this message for women EVERYWHERE. Rose has grown up with psoriasis and what she did by courageously saying yes to a makeover and photo shoot for Heartbox Photography speaks volumes, not only for others who also suffer from psoriasis, but for women in general.

Like me, like her, and yes, like you, too.

Happy Tuesday!
