I have been greatly anticipating this post! I am so happy to share these images of Julie, who came to me with some ideas of what she wanted in a beauty photography session at Bijou. Being newly married and with her child now off at college, Julie decided it was time to do something special for herself. She has been working hard at bootcamp and feeling fantastic and that is a great reason to celebrate with custom portraiture.

Julie loved both the Beautiful Sessions and the Pinup Sessions. During her consultation we discovered the elements she like in both and what her dream session would be like. She is a natural beauty with gorgeous long blonde hair and when we talked about how much she loved photographs of the old movie starlets, I immediately thought she would be perfect for a Veronica Lake inspired shoot. So that’s how we came up with Veronica as inspiration for one segment of the session. Marilyn became part of our inspiration later when Julie found this amazing dress at Revente’s Second Chances (for a song I might add!), one of my favorite boutiques to recommend to clients. It was so much like Marilyn’s white dress from Seven Year Itch (LOVE that movie) that gets blown up by the air from the subway. So of course, we just HAD to make that shot happen too:)

Of course, the looks couldn’t have happened without the amazing skill of Amy Schaming, my partner in women’s portraiture. I think you will agree that she totally nailed the two looks and I know she made Julie feel like a million bucks!

Wardrobe was also an important factor in the shoot. Julie and I worked closely from the time of her consultation all the way through her shoot on the details of the wardrobe, where to find the items for the look, and what would work and what wouldn’t. I consider this an important part of the service that comes with a session. As you can see, it worked out BEAUTIFULLY for Julie, who looks amazing in BOTH of her looks.

I am thrilled with our images, loved working with Julie, and hope you enjoy looking at the images as well:) Please come back tomorrow for the announcement of THE savings on sessions with Ashley Ward Photography at Bijou for the holidays!

I have yet another beautiful boy to blog this morning. This little man was 8 weeks old when his mother brought him in for a newborn photography session to my studio in downtown Columbia SC. At 8 weeks it can be difficult to capture the kinds of images that have become so popular with “newborn” sessions. But with patience and experience during the session, we were able to obtain images for beautiful portraits for his family! He was a beautiful big boy and a good sleeper when he did sleep. And with such gorgeous skin and eyes he was a wonderful subject:)
Next week, I will be blogging more Beauty work! hello, this is a great article.

Rocky Geroge: Hi, its sunny column vis-?-vis media print, we all live perceptive of media is a impressive source of facts.

PurEternal Skincare: There is definately a great deal to know about this issue. I like all of the points you have made.

I like to hold newborn baby photography session’s during the first 2 weeks after the baby’s birth. But that isn’t always possible. Sometimes there are issues that make it necessary to be flexible. This precious little man was almost 7 weeks by the time his family was able to bring him in for his session. But with a little work and patience, we were able to provide this family with portraits that will be so very very precious to them.

I felt so honored to photograph this family and to witness the love they have for one another. Baby boy’s grandmother was diagnosed with ALS, or Lou Gehrig’s disease, a progressive neurodegenerative disease that affects nerve cells in the brain and the spinal cord. Mom, is now caring for her new baby boy and her beloved mother. Despite all they are going through, their faith is strong and they still feel blessed. I am still so touched by their spirit and kindness and devotion to one another. I am so grateful they came to me for portraits and to contribute in any small way to a little happiness in their life.

Pam is amazing! She is smart and kind and BEAUTIFUL! I met Pam some time ago when our daughters because friends at school. Her daughter is as brilliant and sensitive and beautiful as Pam, by the way. I instantly liked Pam and thought she was a lovely woman. When she contacted me about about headshots and portraits I was thrilled! And while Pam (or any of the ladies I photograph for that matter) don’t need a professional hairdresser and makeup artist, and don’t need to dress up in fantasy wardrobe pieces, and don’t need professional lighting and detailed posing instruction and careful use of camera angles that flatter and accentuate all the best parts of their physical presence to be beautiful inside and out, what these things can do for a woman’s heart and spirit is amazing! And I am so happy to give women the opportunity to see themselves in a beautiful new way.

I’d like to share just a little testimonial she sent me this morning:)
“Like most women, I was hesitant to spend time doing something just for me. But, after seeing the beautiful portraits Ashley created of other women, I knew I had to try it. And I’m so very glad I did! From the moment I arrived at the studio, I felt like a movie star! Amy Schaming worked magic on my makeup, and turned my straight, flat hair into gorgeous, flowing curls. Ashley chose poses that would accentuate my curves (and wow, they did!) and made sure I was comfortable and having fun the entire time. Ashley and Amy are not only incredibly talented women, but they’re also very fun to hang out with! And the result? Absolutely gorgeous portraits! I can’t even describe how incredibly beautiful they turned out. Let’s just say that when my husband (who’s currently deployed overseas) saw them, he said he was going to start walking home. I am so very glad I took time for myself, and I now have beautiful portraits to share with my husband, to pass on to my children, and to enjoy myself. Every woman should invest in herself and do a beautiful or pin-up session with Ashley. You deserve it! And you’ll be very happy you did!”
