There’s always a first time for everyone. Even a seasoned pro.
This is one of those entries where I’m going to let the person in the photos do most of the talking. I just want to take a moment to thank everyone that has supported me on this journey. I truly love creating remarkable memories with amazing people. I am a better person because of each of you.
Now I’m turning this over to Tershia.
“I have been modeling for a little over three years but never had decent boudoir photos in my portfolio. After viewing Mark’s photography, I knew he would be the right person for what I needed. I explained to Mark that although I’ve done plenty of shoots, none captured who I truly am. That in all of my shoots, I play a role and that I hoped that he would be able to capture the real me.
Going in, I was very nervous. I had never done a shoot where my personality was the focus and I wasn’t sure if I would be able to show that on camera. The makeup artist, Carolyn Valure (https://www.facebook.com/carolynvaluremua), was amazing. As she did my makeup we talked about life, laughing and joking. This helped me to relax. She did a fairly simple makeup look that added a lot of glamour without being over the top.
The boudoir session itself was wonderful! I had spoken with Mark before the shoot and asked him to guide me throughout the shoot. Although, I know how to pose, I also know that a photographer can see little things that I cannot. Mark coached me throughout, made it comfortable to show the real me, and captured some of the most amazing images I had ever seen of myself. Not only did I get to see the real me on camera, I got a chance to learn more about modeling.
This was by far, one of the best shoots I’ve had. Whether you are just wanting pictures for a loved one or a model wanting to enhance your portfolio, I highly recommend Mark. Not only will you have fun, you’ll have an amazing experience with beautiful photos.”
These words humble me. I just want to point out that the people on this page are the real stars. They put their faith in me and take a leap of faith. They open up and let me into their inner world. I just document what’s in front of me.
