Blueprint: A Mom or a Model? Some Fan Shares

Thank you to Camilla Binks of Camilla Photography for this week’s Blurprints. I asked her the story about the model and these beautiful pictures and here is what she said, “This is my beloved sister, Noel.  Isn’t she gorgeous!?!?  She is a mother of two with her youngest being just 5 months old.  I was walking through a pumpkin patch with my little ones the other day and saw these amazing empty greenhouses that just looked like a big huge softbox with this gorgeous diffused light pouring through.  It called to me so I decided I needed to do a quick little shoot there that week for me.  After looking through the portfolios of a bunch of lovely young, single models, I realized that my sister would be even more perfect for this shoot than any of these models.  Just goes to show that a mother of two can still work it like an 18 year old!  I love that!”

I love the lessons here.  You can be beautiful and glow even after children – and that sometimes we should shoot “just because” and for ourselves to just enjoy the experience and see our own artist vision with no expectations from customers.

Here are 4 Blueprints Camilla did from her “fun” shoot.

    Hi Debbie! I just asked the girls at the front desk the day I first saw the greenhouses. I figured since they were not being used and we would be coming during regular business hours that we wouldn’t be bothering anyone. They were so nice and totally agreed. Easy as pie! But I know if it were a larger and more popular pumpkin patch that they would have been a little more stingy. A lot of times if I just promise to blog about their business then they’re game!

    Camilla,

    Thank you so much for the response. I do appreciate it. Just curious. I’m in Oregon. I’ve been getting my nerve up to just go up and ask also. I was wondering if you offered them some kind of prints, but blogging about their business is a great alternative. Thanks, again.

    I love her look….very edgy looking. The pics are very editorial…..I’m thinking “Vanity Fair” or something.
