paul mitchell in 2 sequential posts! the hearts of studio 55

it's something i strive to do in every shot….

to not only get the image…the "picture" if you will, but the heart and soul in the person that is front of camera.  some of my subjects, i have the honor of knowing for a long time.  some of my subjects, i just get to meet before we start shooting, but when i hold my camera up, somehow i feel that i zoom in square on the heart and soul…it's just something that my eye does with my camera.  

when this happens, my own heart leaps.

to be able to see straight there….it is a gift that i get to hand over to that someone.  

"look!!!!  i see you!!  and you are beautiful!  this is who you are….this is what you need to see…"

 

my girls and brooks at studio 55, well, they all are part of me and the business that i run.  they handle all of my hair and make-up…they laugh with me, share with me, pamper me, pray for me, and i think they MAY love me too :))))

girls...

i pray you see your hearts and souls, as beautifully as i see and saw them in my camera, ad every day.

and brooks…buddy, you've been nearly a brother to me…i hope you know i think you're pretty awesome too :).

xoxox you all!
