When someone asks, “What are these new pictures you are doing?” I always give them my little blurb on how it is your time to be a fashion model, get your hair done, put on some make up and pretty clothes. Smile and laugh with your daughter or your friends. Play dress up. Let me bring out all the beauty in you. I have lots to say, but its really in the photos. And I think in this story. My good friend Julia was my model one day and her story will have you laughing & in tears. This is your experience. This is what Beautiful You is all about. Please read Julia’s story of her day!
“My professional photographer friend Kim Magee is soooooo special !!!!!!!!!!
I was staying at her place while in Lindsay and she needed a model to practice her new moves with the camera!!!
What she needed was a good old, 55 year, menopausal hag!!
This shoot was fairly early in the morning before I was heading to work.
She MADE me put on some of her mascara, she MADE me put on a tiny bit of her blush and a little smack of lipstick.
She MADE me wear one of her dresses (you know me….. and its probably not mine!!!).
She MADE me…………………….. suddenly feel fantastic !!!!!
Kim MADE me feel good about me!!!!!! That is something i hadn’t been in touch with for a long time!
NO lights, just the morning sunshine coming in through the sliding glass doors and bouncing light off styrofoam panels!!!
She MADE me WORK!!!…. tilting my head….moving my hands here and there……looking into into the camera……. smile……don’t smile!!!
Work it baby!!!
It is rare…. to find a photograph of Julia!
Never in my life have I had my picture taken by a professional photographer! My grade school pictures really don’t count and they never get shown around!!!
Kim made me feel fantastic that day…. the passion she exudes while she works is contagious!!!
I felt great about myself for hours and even days later. I held my head higher than I had in years and I hadn’t even seen my pictures yet!!!!
Thats why I’m posting this picture of ME…cause maybe I ain’t so bad after all!!”
No, Julia, pretty damn fabulous, you are! (please forgive me, my friend, for posting the other picture lol)
