Last year I ran a session giveaway and awarded 2 sessions to persons I thought could benefit from new photos. One of the winners was Natalie Dean who runs a female empowerment non-profit group called Whine & Cheese. It is a safe space for women "whine about the stresses of life and cheese (smile) in acknowledgement of their blessings".
Natalie is an inspiring young woman and it was an honor to capture portraits that she can use in blog posts, on her website or personally.
My friend Jen took some behind the scenes photos of my capturing Natalie. Its always hard seeing pictures of myself but I resolve this year to get in more pictures and become more comfortable in front of the camera as well.
