Panache means confidence. Confidence and style are a deadly combination. When the team planned this session we were eager to not just show class, we also wanted to bring that extra oomph to the images. To bring that Panache to the images the team picked up outfits, poses, lighting setups and makeup and hair needed for each look. It was perfectly planned.

Through our images, we wanted to tell a story. A story of a strong woman who can carry herself with style and grace. A woman who can be fresh as the first ray of sunlight to a lady who is classy and means business.

Our first set of styling needed the airy feel, something that said spring. So we decided to go for Levi’s shorts and a sexy tank top was a must. After all we Californians are spoil with amazing weather thru out the year. By pairing it with a nice leather jacket for those breezy evenings, we added a trendy look to the images. Long beautiful beach curls are the perfect look for spring style.

Next was the Pink Jacket from Papaya which gave us the spring/summer feel. So we created the movement to give the images an artistic feel and then changed it to an updo messy bun. I personally love black color. A black dress screams class and sexy. And there is nothing better than an elegant black evening dress to show the demure attitude. Black off the shoulder top with a hot red lipstick is the way a woman says “My attitude rocks”.

To wrap up the day thrown in a lace camisole to create that stylish boudoir look. What better way to end your day or in our case, our session. My model Sarah is not just a beautiful lady but she has the ability to stylize any outfit that she wears. The attitude, confidence, her persona and her connection with the camera are evident in the images we created during this session.

Stella is the owner of Stella Makeup Artistry and is extremely talented. I trust her with my creative craziness and her work is breathtaking. She treats women like canvas and brings forth their best features. I love the natural look she added to this airy session. At the same time when we decided to switch the look to more demure and sexy with the beautiful Forever21 dress, she could change that and bring forth the DIVA look.

I personally am passionate about Beauty and Fashion photography like caffeine. It’s important for my artistic existence. I see these amazing women transform in front of the camera. The beauty of these sessions is when I see how these amazing women fill up with confidence once they see themselves looking ravishing.

With multiple publications under my belt, I am always eager to try different fashion and beauty looks, play with lighting setups and create images that not only thrill the viewers of the images but also leave an impact. Often I see myself trying to challenge the artist in me.

Each of us on this team is good at what we do, so with a lot of trusts, planning, and teamwork, the session was a beautiful success. I can’t be more thankful to have a team that works with so much coordination and faith in each other’s abilities.
