This lovely lady is Shannon. She first emailed me way back in June of last year to discuss shooting together. Since she has very liitle modeling experience, she wanted a lot of informaiton. After we exchanged several emails, she chickened out. Last Thursday we did our first shoot togther --- almost a year later!. As you can see, the results were spectacular and exceeded her expectations. I'm SO happy I stayed in touch and encouraged her. And now she's really pissed at herself for taking so long to get up the courage to shoot with me.

With a great set of images and renewed self confidence, I hope our next shoot won't take another year! For those photographers in the DFW area, Shannon just moved here so she's available for shoots, workshops, etc.

Congrats to both of you for having the patience to wait a year, obviously it was worth the wait. Great images.

How does anyone that looks like that have a confidence problem ???
Add to that all the photos in your portfolio and she should be mad for waiting so long

Kuddos on the encouragement and patience

Hopefully she will show her pics to future clients too!

Thanks for all the compliments, I'll make sure they get to Shannon as another confidence booster.

Whenever I'm out somewhere, I shoot pics of anything I think would make an interesting background - flames, clouds, brick walls, water, sunsets ... you name it. I keep hundreds of these images in a folder for just the right moment. The background in pic #1 is flames from a big apartment fire (I duplicated the flame layer in PS to make the flames denser, then added some gaussian blur to soften the effect).

Now let's play "Guess the background image"
A model brought me the image below which was shot against a white seemless background. She wanted something with more "shine and interest." The background image I used was taken during my trip to Seaside, FL Can you guess what it is?

I completely agree with Jean, Marty. If she has any interest in pursuing this, I would strongly urge you to do so. I would be very pleased to see her grace the pages of PB, and just based on the three shots that you have here, I would have to say that she outclasses about 75% of the women I've seen in the last 2-3 years. She is a world class beauty, and you really did a nice job showcasing it.

Your stream of encouragement, while I suspect frustrating at times, clearly paid huge dividends for both of you. I always find it refreshing when a woman with physical beauty of this caliber doesn't necessarily think that she is. That said, I look forward to seeing what materializes as her confidence grows. I suspect that the sky might just be the only limit with this young woman.
