Beauty is more than skin deep……

Sometime back in the fall maybe Oct or Nov I met this Gracie, Gracie K… who is best friends with another Gracie, Gracie S. I don’t remember the exact date in Oct of 2014 I received a call from Gracie S, who’s image you’ve seen by now. Gracie S. was down in the dumps because of a tragedy that had occurred and she wanted to do a shoot, something special for Gracie K. Well, as you know by now I love working with Gracie S so it didn’t take much of an excuse for me to want to hear more. When she told me that the week earlier Gracie K’s mom has passed suddenly, I knew whatever we did, it needed to be something special and I was fully on board.

Portrait of Gracie K taken during the first of two sessions. This was her fist time in front of the camera in a studio session such as this. Seeing the image you see one type of beauty. But seeing and knowing Gracie K you’ll know that beauty is greater than skin deep.

So we set up a board on Pinterest and started loading up the ideas for the shoot. I have to admit though, it was Gracie that was coming up with the ideas and that she was really the one filling up our board. Frankly I loved her idea(s), they were fun, this was going to be an amazing shoot! We actually did this shoot over two sessions several weeks apart.

You don’t get to see those images just yet. Well, except for the portrait of Gracie K that is. The other images from the shoot will be available soon though. I’m hoping some of them will be published in the near future.

I’m so glad I had the opportunity to not only meet Gracie K but I got to know her. I feel just a little richer having done so.

If asked to give a description, all I can say is that Gracie K is an amazing person and that she demonstrates clearly that beauty can be greater than skin deep.
