Red Hair + Long Dress = Floating in the Ocean – Los Angeles Transformational Beauty Photographer

“Love at first sight” is how my client describes this painting of the red-haired beauty.

When I saw it, my heart sang!  For one, I love working with people that are open to chances (hint: think “free spirit”).  Two, do I really need to say?  This client has a true appreciation for art.

Now, I could “figuratively” replicate what she likes about this painting.  But hey, she hired me as an artist and copying is boring for me.  Plus, do you really think that she will be thrilled if I had her hair dyed red, I mean, crimson red? :p

So, when she submitted the picture of the long dress (see below) as one of the potential outfits for the photo shoot, I knew I had to use it, because it’s another “love at first sight” for her. 😉

What happened next, as they say, is history. 🙂  We’ve created a fairy/mermaid* that floats in the ocean.  Don’t ask me what the fairy was doing.  What a dumb question!  The most important thing is this – doesn’t your heart feel the “free spirit” from this image that we achieved?

For me, I know I’ve nailed this one when my client had to have this photograph.  So, is this “love at first sight” for her?  Haha… You’d have to ask her when you see her sporting the lovely dress floating around. 🙂

Remember, the next time you hire an artist, look for the signs that they create, and not merely copy.

* excuse moi for the poor selection of term since English is not my mother tongue. 😛  But, you know where I’m getting, don’t you?

P.S. Does this equation reminds you of a chemistry lab back in school?  Well, you are not alone.  Anyway, chemistry was the only subject that my sister did better than me.  And the secret, as she later revealed, was memorization.  Boring!!

    very well put Jean..we all can see only flaws in ourselves when we see our pictures or in the mirror..It takes a special artiste like you to bring out the better features and make it look so good

    • Awww, Anup, thank you so much for such nice comment!

      I see beauty everywhere and I truly desire to bring out this beauty so people start appreciating what they already have and focus less on the things they don’t have. Another thing about beauty is that a lot of times, it’s based on the so-called “standards” that are pure metrics. But hello, we are human being made of blood and soul; we are not just sizes/numbers.

      BTW, so guys look in the mirror and criticize yourselves too? 😉

      Have a great weekend!
