I created these Petite Couture sessions many years ago, starting with my niece’s portraits. And from then on, I was hooked. These sessions are created and styled by me, everything from doing their hair, basic makeup application and then what they wear.
Growing up in today’s world, as a mom with two teenagers and a soon to be tween (even though I have 3 boys), I truly think childhood is so much harder these days than when we were growing up. Don’t you think? The whole purpose of these sessions is to empower these young ladies, give them a few hours of pampering, catering to them and to truly show how beautiful they are. Creating a whole little world for JUST them, even if it’s only for a short time.
Even moreso these days. Everything with Covid, being cooped up in the house. Going only from your home and to/from school. Many days, it can feel like we’re living in the movie “Groundhog Day”. So what better way to celebrate these young ladies than with a session created JUST for them, right?!
Meg and her mom came into my studio a couple of weeks ago. They were so open-minded and excited with what I had to offer her to wear. They were game for anything! What I had in mind, it fit her PERFECTLY and I couldn’t have asked for a better session. Meg was a complete natural in front of the camera.
