Daria booked a session for her 55 birthday. She felt very strongly about recording this moment in her life, and decided on several looks: a portrait as she is every day, with no makeup and hair styling; headshots; an old Hollywood glamour style portrait; and to recreate a photo like Stevie Nicks in a boa-robe with hair blowing in the wind from some video I'd never seen...lol!
I love when clients let loose and just want to have fun in front of the camera and try different things. At Daria’s reveal a week later, she told me she had total anxiety about being photographed when she arrived. A big part of my job is helping people relax and feel confidant.
Here’s what Daria had to say about her experience:
“I booked a photo session with Jana because I wanted to document where I'm at in life, having recently turned 55. When the date arrived, I was both excited and wanted to run in the opposite direction because I hate photos of myself. I am so glad that I followed through; the session was the best birthday gift I've ever given myself. Thank you, Jana! I loved working with you. You're a fantastic photographer; the photos are absolutely amazing.”
