Even with the opening of our studio doors months away, our contemporary glamour photography has taken a life of its own. It will not wait for sheet rock to go up or walls to be painted. So we pack up our portable-ized studio set and transform spaces into our beauty portrait studio. Simply with enough natural light, a little pampering by our make-up artist extraordinaire, and a willing spirit, that inherent beauty that every woman has finds its way out. Makeup, hair, lighting and posing only go so far. When a woman understands that I may see her completely differently than how she’s always seen herself, that trust creates a connection that brings images to life. For some, it may be the first time they have ever seen themselves without their own filters. For Nadia, that connection brought out two qualities she is so well known for: her sincerity and a luminance from her smile that emanates for miles.
