You Are Beautiful | Kellie Blinco Photography
I recently photographed 12 exceptional women in 1 hour for a shoot for Raw Energy and Wellness Centre
This shoot is different to what I usually do for clients – connecting with someone in less than 5 mins to produce a beautiful portrait is a hard task, but I believed deep down that while I wouldn’t be able to give the ladies the absolute best of my work in 5 minutes, I could give them everything I had and give them the best of myself and show them that they are beautiful
After the shoot, I was speaking with some of the ladies, about how much I love revealing the results from sessions because it is like, for some people, they are seeing themselves for the very time
The more I reflected on what I do and womens beauty shoots i have done in the past I realised that in some small way, I really am privileged to play a small role in the way the see themselves.
After a taking a year pretty much off from shooting after moving to Perth, I thought really hard about what made me love what I was doing. It always came back to the moments of photo reveals for the women I have had come through the studio. I will never forget a single reveal I have done from beauty sessions. The moment they see themselves, its truly amazing
I wanted to share that with everyone. This project was meant to be a small marketing video for beauty shoots – but it took on a life of its own. And the message is larger than I ever imagined it would be
Courtney | Contemporary Beauty
I did this shoot way back in 2013 – I was so incredibly busy during my last 12-18 months in Gladstone, and now I am here living in Perth, having a break, I can finally take some time to go through the hundreds of sessions I photograph in this time and update the poor neglected blog!
I had so much fun on this shoot with Courtney. Her sister Caity was my studio manager, two beautiful girls right there!
For courtney’s session, we were going for a bit of fashion inspired look so I played with some bold colours, grain and light. We tried to balance the pics between pretty and edgy and I think Courtney does both well! I love love love doing this type of shoot!
Sarah | Paris on the Gold Coast
For Sarah’s 30th, she celebrated by dressing up and being fabulous!
Sarah wanted a parisian inspired style so we visited a number of locations around the Gold Coast and finished of with a High Tea at the Palazzo Versace
Christine | Beauty / Fitness Photography
Wow this lady is a powerhouse! Christine came in to get some photo’s of her fit body while it was in great condition before comp.
What we decided to do was some softer beauty, and then some more fitness orientated shots. Using different light positions, we can either soften or accentuate – so we used low contrast soft reflected light for the lingerie shots and a more contrasty light when we wanted to show of the contours of her muscle – especially those abs!
Like most ladies, Christine was a little nervous for this shoot. It is a massive thing to open yourself up to being photographed in this way – but I have never had a client that regretted it. You are amazing Christine and really inspiring!!
Tamara | Fitness Shoot
While fit shoots are not something that I do everyday, when my personal trainer Tamara asked me to take some photographs of her in the studio, I was more than happy too!
She really is an inspirational person and trainer!
Marnee | Beauty | 2012
Marnee has aspirations of oneday being a model, I think she could easily make it!
