will you still love me, when im no longer young and beautiful… listen.
quite a few different things going on here recently! firstly, i dont often reference music in my photos, but that line from lanas song immediately inspired me and ive wanted to create this image for months. i actually find aging to be quite beautiful, but with all the value placed on youth in our society there is certainly a lot to be said about losing that and trading in fresh skin and a perfect waistline for a certain beauty of the soul that only time can bring. beyond that, ill let the photo do the talking. :P
this was also only the second time ever i got to shoot in a studio environment with lighting equipment and everything - i was so incredibly excited! the first time was when i extremely new to photography, and i was so clueless that the whole experience was just rather frustrating. i think because of that, i was always turned off from the whole idea. who woulda known that 2 years later id feel so fulfilled from a day shooting in the studio. ;) i think its totally awesome to challenge yourself and always be trying new things. for a while ive been kinda stuck in the same ol’ same ol’ and sometimes that routine makes it difficult to truly feel inspired to create. i think its all fine and dandy to be doing what you -know- will work with your clients, because youve done it so many times before - just gotta be careful not to lose yourself and your ability to grow in the process.
anywhoooo i have one other shot that i posted up on facebook yesterday if you care to peek!
model is the incredible and breathtaking laura hess.
