When I first started doing photography (many, many years ago) it was very innocent and I captured the natural beauty around me. Flowers, the sunset, Fall foliage…you get the idea. But as the years have passed and my skills have grown it’s really enabled me to express my creativity in ways I never imagined when I started.
While photography is now my profession, it also remains my creative outlet. Trying new things and “thinking outside the box” is what keeps me engaged and loving my job every day!
I’m always on the hunt for inspiration as I’m scrolling through IG and FB. About a year ago I came across an image that really struck me. It was of a young woman in a elegant black gown with gold foil applied tastefully to her face. That portrait has stayed in the back of my mind all this time and I’ve slowly let the idea evolve. The original image was too dark and sad for me, but still so beautiful.
So I wanted to take my favorite parts of that artist’s creation and put my own twist and style on it. Last week the pieces finally all came together and my Golden Goddess came to life.
