As my oldest daughter entered high school, my husband and I became super involved with the drill team. I fell in love with football season and halftime!! How could you not love photographing sparkles!!!
Time after time, I would photograph a young girl, and I would immediately hear “Mrs Graves, I don’t like being in pictures.” They would share their insecurities...they didn’t like their smile, their size, their hair.
But game after game, I continued to photograph these energetic girls dressed in red sparkles cheering and dancing for their football team!!!! Finally one asked me if they could see the picture I just took! I had to say yes!!!! This young girl finally saw her pictures as beautiful!!!!
I had a new mission in photography!!! To make everyone feel beautiful in their pictures! It’s not magic… it’s just helping people realize their inner beauty!!!
