BE INSPIRED Senior Session |featuring Alyssa Lentz

My goal at the beginning of every session is to capture someone as they are and to leave them feeling empowered in that. I think this approach helps to keep me from being caught up in trendy, social-media-driven images and instead give my clients images that reflect them. After about six years of full-time business, I’ve discovered that this is what drives me most to create. Outside of photography, I also love to dabble in truly any and all mediums I can get my hands on. My studio is full of fabric remnants and tubes of paint and jars of resin from all of the projects I’ll start (and sometimes finish).

REDEFINE | Taking a creative leap doing Horse Photography feature by That Girl Pearl Photography

Photographing horses had always been a creative dream of mine. The initial challenge I faced was my own insecurity and fear. I was so reluctant to ask anyone if I could photograph their horses. It took five years of living by my neighbor who has three horses before I finally had the nerve to go ask if I could photograph them. I realize just saying that sounds so crazy. It is so sad how much we deny ourselves by letting fear take over the driving wheel. My approach for this horse shoot was to capture these beautiful animals in the area they call home, in the same manner, I conduct my family lifestyle sessions. Start by observing how they interact with each other at their own home and not pose them at all.
