Mary booked the LUXE senior experience so Tinsley (one of my awesome Makeup artists) got to come on location with us and do three different looks to match our locations and wardrobe. We started out more fun/casual and ended much more dramatic and oh my goodness stunning. The day was perfect in every way and even Handsome the horse was pretty well behaved. Mary you are so dear to me, I am so happy to have had the chance to meet you and capture your senior photographs. I know we will be forever friends, I can’t wait to see where your dreams take you! I asked Mary to write a quick note about her experience for the website, it was so awesome I had to share it here as well. I seriously get to meet the most amazing people, I am so thankful for each of you in my life!
“From the moment I walked into our first planning session, I knew it was fate. My first impression of her was gorgeous. But not only is Rebekah beautiful and fashionable on the outside, she is hilarious and kindhearted and a free soul on the inside. She laughed at my dad’s corny jokes and dealt well with my pickiness.
The day of the shoot was so much fun from the moment I started getting primped until the moment the last photo was taken. Tinsley made me feel comfortable and beautiful. Rebekah helped my mom sort through the multitude of outfits and shoes I brought. We all laughed and joked around the entire time. Rebekah helped me choose the perfect outfits for each location out of the ones I brought to her. She really felt my style and helped to bring that out in her pictures.
Once we started shooting, I felt at ease with Rebekah. It just flowed so naturally and her presence was comforting. She allowed me to feel confident and rock it out in front of her camera. She easily directed my poses and got me into my own groove. She knew how to work her lighting and allowed me to be myself. At the end of the day, we were racing against the sunset and working with a horse (not easy!), but she still helped me to hit the perfect poses with the perfect lighting.
I had butterflies as I walked up to Rebekah’s studio to see my pictures. As my dad and I sat down to look at them, I was purely giddy. Once the slideshow began, I had tears in my eyes. I saw myself in a whole new light. I felt so happy with them and knew I had made the right choice with Rebekah. She showcased my natural beauty and highlighted the things I love about myself. Not only that, but she showed me things about myself I hadn’t before seen.
We created a bond together that will not fade. We created art together. I am so grateful for her for my experience and beautiful photographs. I have pieces of art in which I am the muse to hold on to forever.” -Mary
