BeMe and the Best Of 2012…

Two years behind the steering wheel and I am still IN LOVE with the journey.  BeMe has changed and migrated into more than just a photography studio.  It is truly my heart displayed on a screen, in a book, or on a wall.  I have taken so much from the clients that I have had the pleasure of photographing.  Each person, story, joke, tear, and smile captured becomes etched on me like a tattoo.  I take you guys with me.  It’s been a year of growth and I look forward to continued expansion and evolution as the days and years keep coming.

 

So…I’ll start with a big moment for BeMe which changed how I shot images and took on clients.  After a painful, but successful, video submission I was chosen to fly out to Seattle for the Creative Live Boudoir Workshop with Christa Meola.  Christa is an amazing photographer and dynamic business woman.  It was awesome to see how this seasoned photographer worked and hear her experiences she has collected.   I was also able to meet and learn from dozens of other photographers, videographers, and creatives as well.  I’m not a social butterfly by nature so it was great to be able to stretch my wings and tap into this other side of myself.  Here are my favorite shots from that workshop experience.

 

 

There is nothing like a dynamic duo.  I was able to shoot a lot of fabulous friends and sisters this year.  Sometimes you muster up more courage when you have someone to share an experience with.

 

 

 

 

 

Female strength is a beauty to behold in any form.  These ladies can definitely hold their own plus some.  Below you will find a local personal trainer/bodybuilder, and two ladies that defend our country in the navy and army.  The fact that these ladies have such strong roles in life made capturing them letting their hair down a bit even better…

 

 

 

Couples always light me up!  I love watching the connection between two people.  It’s magnetic and unique…

 

 

 

 

Though I don’t photograph many of these, when I do I always wind up having a ball.  Even in the midst of all the chaos something beautiful always shines through…Wedded bliss

 

Scandal is hands down my FAVORITE new show of 2012.  The twists and turns and fiery connection between Olivia and the president are just juicy bits of heaven….So what was my the most scandalous shoot I did this year??? Hands down the shoot I did for a local erotic author…TOTALLY OUT OF MY NORMAL COMFORT ZONE….but sometimes you have to just do it and see where it lands you.  We had more hiccups than you could believe on this shoot but it was an awesome experience and I’m happy I took the leap…

 

 

Seventy percent of the clients I shoot are everyday moms.   I honestly feel that ALL of them are sexy mutha…shut your mouths…hehehe…  Anywho…These ladies were soooo nervous I thought they would pass out before we got started.   After working through the nerves we had a ball and created theses beauties…

 

I try to connect with the people I shoot.  I really care about and truly feel what people are going through.  There are some people that I encounter that are just so warm that they glow and ooze a loving spirit.  It is in the way they speak to you, the way they smile and the way they blush at thought of their own fabulousness.  These two ladies just warmed my heart…

 

 

 

Hot, Sexy Confidence blasted out of these fierce females.  There was no comfort curve…It was ready, set, I used to be an undercover supermodel lets do this thang…

 

 

 

Sometimes the best things pop up when you just sit still.  Quiet moments turned into these poised reflective thoughts that photographed beautifully…

 

 

 

Breast Cancer Awareness is more than important it is crucial…I always have a great time when we all get together to raise awareness and this year was no exception…

 

 

I work with fabulous make-up artists.  A little rouge here and a set of lashes there really make images POP!  I LOVE these beautiful faces and solid expressions…

 

 

So these are just a handful of my best moments from 2012.  It has been a tremendous year.   I can’t wait to see what’s around the corner for 2013…
